Listening to the Heart

By Ted Englander

Listening to the heart is a gift and a skill. People living in modern societies often make life decisions primarily using the left-sided thinking brain. We are taught to value “logic” and “critical thinking skills.” While the thinking mind, the brain, is highly prized, the human heart also has its own wisdom and intelligence. Traditional cultures have valued and developed the wisdom of the heart far more than contemporary cultures.

Listening to the Heart
By Kristina Rogers
Sun, Oct 12, 10:30am
Posada de la Aldea
Ancha de San Antonio 15

HeartMath is an internationally recognized nonprofit research and education organization studying the heart and its effects on the body. It is now clear that the heart communicates with the brain in ways that help us perceive and respond to the world. Scientists presently believe that there is a “brain” in the heart that uses our emotions and intuition to help us make decisions and that the heart also works with the brain to co-ordinate a myriad of physiological functions.

In this program, Kristina Rogers will share practices that help us listen to, connect to, and use the wisdom of our hearts. She will also teach us how to retrain the mind to a more positive state by creating new, positive neural pathways. It has been found that intentionally focusing our minds on the positive creates new pathways for well-being. Rogers will address these issues and findings in her talk.

Kristina Rogers, L.Ac., has practiced acupuncture for 30 years. She currently lives in San Miguel de Allende, where she works as an acupuncturist, teacher, and spiritual guide.

The UU Fellowship meets every Sunday at 10:30am at La Posada de la Aldea, Ancha de San Antonio 15 and welcomes people of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientation, and gender identity. The room is wheelchair accessible. For more information, visit our website at
