The OKANAGAN is Head Quarters for Coherence Hotspot. We are all familiar with the wifi symbol connecting all of us to the internet. The Coherence Hotspot symbol is a revolutionary concept connecting all of us in a heart centred and impactful way.
Research has proven that our emotional state directly influences our experience in life, as well as our worldview, and the lens in which we view others. This affects each decision we make and the quality of life we have. Could it mean then, that when we collectively change our emotional state, life as we know will change? Pretty close, and understanding the science in this process is just the beginning.
Proof in science
Science shows that ‘coherence’ is a healthy state, when our heart, mind and emotions are in sync. How can we shift into a coherent state? It is a simple, yet highly undervalued tool – our breath. It doesn’t matter what part of the world we come from, our background, faith, or our belief systems, we all have the capacity to tune into our breath, and with intention, listen to our heart.
Many of us feel we might not be intuitive, however we have the capacity, with practise and intention, to become coherent, in turn creating a pause so that we can make more clear decisions, have better communication with ourselves and others, and fully see things from another person’s perspective, regardless if there is agreement or not. It becomes a conversation rather than a chaotic defensive, energy draining situation. We see this not only in our own personal lives, but on the world stage as a whole.
The global Coherence Hotspot network has been founded for exactly this purpose. Like with a WiFi Hotspot, we come together, connect and communicate in a highly coherent way. So, the official definition of a Coherence Hotspot is:
“Any place where people get together on a regular basis, learn the science behind our connected universe, use the tools to see and feel in real time what coherence ‘feels’ like, and ultimately bring it into their own body before radiating it out into the world, just like the Washington DC experiment”.
Some things, especially those we have a hard time explaining, are often the most powerful in life.
In 1993, a two-month national demonstration project conducted in Washington, D.C., showed how a coherence-creating group can reduce crime and social stress and improve the effectiveness of government.
Before the project, violent crime had been steadily increasing during the first five months of the year. A week or so after the start of the study, violent crime (HRA crime: Homicides, rapes and aggravated assaults, measured by FBI Uniform Crime Statistics) began decreasing and continued to drop until the end of the experiment.
Before the project the researchers had publicly predicted that the coherence group would reduce the trend of crime by 20%. This prediction had been ridiculed by the Chief of Police who asserted that the only thing that would decrease crime that much would be 20 inches of snow. In the end, the maximum decrease was 23.3% below the time series prediction for that period of the year. This significant reversal in the predicted crime trend occurred when the size of the group was at its largest in the final week of the project and during a blistering heat wave.
An important belief, the statical probability that this result could reflect chance variation in crime levels, was less than 2 in 1 billion (p<.000000002). It was achieved in a simple, profound way. A group of people got together and became coherent.
To date, there are more than 60 Coherence Hotspots around the globe, where people like you and I see the value in educating people in each of our communities, by meeting on a regular basis, weekly, or monthly for example learning the connection between coherence and growing our resiliency, so we can not only manage our busy, hectic lives, but find a “pause” in a part of everyday.
Both the HeartMath® Institute and the Resonance Science Foundation, endorse the global Coherence Hotspot network, because they have the science to prove, that the real change we wish to see in the world actually happens when we connect. In science, this process can also be referred to as ‘entrainment’. This entrainment is found in all living systems, and when we tap into this coherent state personally, connecting with others as a group, moving into a social change, and ultimately a new worldview, we can have a profound effect on those around us.
You have now the unique opportunity to enrol in a science-based training, provided by the global Coherence Hotspot network, and delve into the dynamic and science behind our connected universe, our belief systems, and our changing worldview. But you also learn about the influence of epigenetics, placebo, and coherence have on our immediate life experience, from personal coherence to the quantum field, and how to master the breath, using biofeedback to create an entrainment of our physiological systems.
We can shift not only our own state, but directly affect the ‘field’ by doing so. When we come together regularly, and spend a short time collectively syncing up our intentions, it ripples out into the field, affecting even those who are not aware.
Maybe you have already carved out a practise that brings you this sense of connection – In your workplace, at home with family and friends.
If you are curious to learn more about your own physiology, and the powerful way you can facilitate a change in your own community, or are interested in learning about the innate wisdom you already possess, this online training is carved out for you. There’s no need to commit to creating a Coherence Hotspot at this time, but after finishing the training, you might change your mind.
