About the Project.
Joy, hope, compassion, awe, gratitude, love and trust matter. These "spiritual emotions" help us thrive and give us energy to reach out and help others do the same.
Some people come by these qualities naturally. Most of us wander off into the weeds if we're not paying attention. Fast-paced lives, heartbreaking news headlines and our own personal difficulties challenge our ability to stay resilient and on track.
The Heart Matters Project provides faith-based tools to help cultivate positive spiritual emotions and process our painful emotions of grief and contrition. We blend centuries-old Christian practices with the latest research on the human brain and nervous system.
The Heart Matters blog
is a book in progress.
