Heart Rhythm Meditation (HRM) is an ancient form of meditation that integrates attention to body, mind, heart, and spirit. In the practice of HRM (updated and refreshed by Puran and Susannah Bair, founders of the Institute of Applied Meditation), one syncs the full breath to the beat of the heart. HRM focuses on both the physical and metaphorical heart.
