Rollin McCraty, Ph.D. is Director of Research of the HeartMath Research Center at the HeartMath Institute. He is also a visiting Professor at Florida Atlantic University. As a psychophysiologist, Dr. McCraty’s research interests include the physiology of emotion, with a focus on the mechanisms by which emotions influence cognitive processes, behavior, and health as well as the global interconnectivity between people and the earth’s energetic systems. Findings from this research have been applied to the development of tools and technology to optimize individual and organizational health, performance, and quality of life. Dr. McCraty has acted as Principal Investigator in numerous laboratory research studies examining the effects of emotions on heart-brain interactions and on autonomic, cardiovascular, hormonal, and immune system function. He has also served as PI in a number of field studies to determine the outcomes of positive emotion-focused interventions and heart rhythm coherence feedback in diverse organizational and educational settings as well as in various clinical populations.
He has been featured in a number of documentary films such as I am, The Truth, The Joy of Sox, The Power of the Heart, Solar Revolution, and The Living Matrix among many others.

Pre-Conference Workshop

“I Don’t End Here:” Biofield Science and Healing

What happens if we realize that we exist beyond our physical bodies, and that our consciousness and energy fields can connect to foster healing? What are the implications for our concepts of consciousness and mind, self and ‘other’, health and healing when the conventional view of life as chemistry expands to life as biofields? Do information-carrying biofields, generated by all living things, extend beyond our bodies to suggest “I don’t end here”, providing evidence for the connections between and potential for healing of all life forms? Join the Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI) for an all-day experience of learning, inspiration and practice as we interact with luminaries in biofield science and healing at this pre-conference workshop with our partner the Institute of Noetic Sciences. Explore and expand your healing knowledge and capacities, and help co-create the healing revolution.
