The Heart - October 28th

THE PHYSICAL-SPIRITUAL HEART CONNECTION......and reaching the hearts of our children and each other

Dr. Trent Orfanos is a practicing Orthodox Cardiologist and he is excited to share some of the things he has learned about the connection between our head and our heart and our faith and our physiology.  Dr. Orfanos will explain how we are divinely fashioned to thrive on,  and live,  in Love and Thanksgiving. To do this, we must lead more with our hearts than with our heads. God wants our hearts.  Our hearts are essential to our physical, psychological, and spiritual health. We are hardwired to connect to God  and live a life of gratitude, compassion, caring, and the most powerful emotion created by God - love.  Cultivating these positive emotions in our lives will help our bodies function better and achieve better physical health  by dropping blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar while also reducing levels of Cortisol (stress hormone). Did you know that the heart emanates an electrical field detectable up to ten feet around us. The physical/emotional state of our heart actually affects those around us and we similarly are affected by those near us.  Learn how to cultivate positive emotions through the prayer of the heart, and other techniques to help us connect with each other with loving hearts.
