The Heart

A poetic science exploration
& celebration of our hearts
& heaven on Earth

For millennia the saints, sages,
and leaders of religions across the world have
told us about the importance
of our hearts.

“If you want to change the world,
first change your heart.”
“Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.”
“Through money or power you cannot solve all problems. The problem in the human heart must be solved first.”
“I looked in temples churches and mosques.
But I found the Divine within my heart.”
“As he thinks in his heart, so he is.”
“War is the suicide of humanity
because it kills the heart and kills love.”
“Morality is rooted in the purity of our hearts.”
“There’s no question about the reality of evil, of injustice, of suffering, but at the center of this existence is a heart beating with love.”
“The way is not in the sky.
The way is in the heart.”

Then, science became celebrated as the only way to explore and answer life’s big questions.

And science declared that the heart’s sole purpose is to pump blood. It has no other function. Everything we call soul or consciousness, thinking, emotions, creativity, etc., comes from our brain. The brain is what makes us humans unique.

But, a few undogmatic scientists have found evidence of the unbelievable. Our hearts are not not at all what we thought it was …

More and more cutting-edge studies reflect what saints and sages have told us about the heart.


Our poetic science documentary is structured into eight archetypal chapters of life. We start with the one that is sadly the last for most people: Dis-ease.

Then we look at Change, Love, Birth, School, Earth, Death, and Rebirth. We follow the lead characters and explore our heart’s purpose in these chapters of life.

Chapter | D I S E A S E
A young surgeon in New Delhi prepares for an open heart surgery on a senior woman. Due to her heart condition, she can no longer continue her life as usual. Her biggest wish is to have more time to practice her faith …
Chapter | S H I F T
Prof. Pollack and his team have made discoveries that might lead to a scientific revolution. “It’s been proposed by some that we’ve discovered pretty much everything. This is so wrong. There’s so much we need to know, especially in areas of consciousness ..."
Chapter | L O V E
Kabir Helminski shares the Sufi’s insights into the nature and purpose of the heart. “What if we are reflections of a greater reality? The individual longs to experience the source from which we came, and that source, its quality, has something to do with this mystery we call love ..."
Chapter | B I R T H
Dr. Wendy Anne McCarty shares her views based on decades of working as a pre- and perinatal psychologist. “From our pre- and perinatal understanding of how conscious babies are, I think we’re discovering a lot about how to awaken the heart from the beginning of life.”
Chapter | S C H O O L
Milli, like many eight-year-old girls, has challenges in school. Yet, inspired by her friend, within just 4 weeks, she learns to literally see the world through her heart--while she is blindfolded. We are all born with this seemingly extraordinary spiritual gift..."
Chapter | E A R T H
“We now have this system for measuring the Earth’s magnetic fields. It’s kind of metaphorically like measuring the heart rhythms and brainwaves of planet Earth. As it turns out, it may not be a metaphor ..."

After years of working on this feature documentary, we are finally in post-production, and our film will be completed by November 2023.

We are working on some teasers, which will be up here soon. Sign up for our newsletter, and you’ll receive updates on all things heart revolutionary and more! Want to show our film to your community? Or run a unique virtual event?


The Heart Revolution takes you on an impressionistic journey through human life, playfully exploring what our hearts are all about.

From before the first heartbeat to beyond the last. From before the creation {≈systole of the cosmic heartbeat} to beyond the end of the universe {≈cosmic diastole}.

We paint a new picture of our heart and hint at how it may be the key to having heaven on Earth and living together peacefully despite all our differences.

After 7 years of researching the blood circulation in chicken embryos, Prof. Pollack and Dr. Li summarize their ground-breaking research as “Something other than the heart is driving the blood circulation.” Their findings might be the overture to a scientific revolution.

The question now is, ‘What’s the purpose of the human heart?’

“Every culture has their word for it. Higher Self, spirit, soul. This research suggests that it’s quite real, and that the great religions and a lot of philosophers have been right all along–the heart is literally an access point to that deeper source of intelligence within us.”

Dr. Rollin McCraty and the HeartMath Institute have been conducting research for decades that’s revealing surprising insights into the human heart. The research reveals the profound impact our hearts have on one another and our interconnectedness with the Earth and our ‘soul’.

After Dr. Wendy Anne McCarty trained as a nurse she studied psychology and worked with hundreds of infants and their parents as a pre- and perinatal psychologist. What she discovered about babies’ consciousness put the currently accepted view on its head. The heart-to-heart connection between mothers and babies is where it all starts. It is a major key to a flowering life for each and all of us.
“Babies are more conscious in some ways than we are because they’re functioning in two worlds very consciously, flipping back and forth between their transcendent self, and this little human body and human self. And that self-relationship, to me, is of primary importance. We want it to be as heart-centered as possible. Because it’s that flourishing heart that helps us be who we are.”

As we travel through the chapters of human life, we explore both the scientific and spiritual perspectives on the heart.

“What to do with the heart, how to develop it, how to awaken it? I think this is a very fundamental human question, if not the fundamental human question.”

Kabir Helminski has been learning, teaching, and embodying Sufism for about forty years. He has translated Rumi’s poetry, written books on Sufi wisdom, and travelled around the world with the whirling dervishes.

“I grew up in a Catholic working-class family, for which I’m grateful. I felt an interest in spirituality from an early age. In college, I became interested in Eastern religions, and that was my entry into the subject of consciousness.”

“How beautiful it would be if we could truly feel our oneness with all of humanity, and how things would change. Imagine realizing that at the heart of each human being, our felt inner experience of humanness is the same in me as it is in you.”

Anita Moorjani, the best-selling author of ‘Dying to be me’, fell into a coma and died of cancer. ‘On the other side’ she had ‘life-changing’ realizations about love, her cancer, and death. After she woke up, her stage 4 cancer disappeared within weeks. 20 years later she still dances with life and her husband.

“A lot of people think they have to do a lot of things to get to heaven. What’s really sad is that when we die, we realize that, oh my gosh, I could have created heaven on Earth.“

“To me, heaven is a state of being. That joyful state of being completely comfortable with yourself and knowing that you are at peace with who you are and where you are right now.”

What if paradise begins with awakening our flowering hearts like the saints and sages did?

How we relate to our hearts
is of existential importance.

We are born with ten fingers. Imagine if we all used our fingers, hands, and feet like our beloved cats and dogs. We’d be sure that our hands are made to be used to move around.

Until someone proposes the seemingly crazy idea that we use our fingers to play the piano, paint, or, most importantly, tickle each other.

Everyone could use their fingers to continue living like these utterly cute cats and dogs. That’s perfectly fine. And, we could learn to use our fingers to experience and express the wonders and beauty of life..
Could the same be true for our hearts?
If the heart’s purpose is not pumping blood – what is its purpose?

Was it made to be used in ways we can barely imagine?

Many celebrated leaders talk about the heart


Disconnected from the loving, knowing heart, our minds got misled by concepts like gender, race, god, sexual orientation, faith, education, wealth, …
… and hypnotized by what seems to divide us.
Hasn’t this caused suffering for long enough? Ancient stories from around the world tell us that we once lived in paradise here on Earth. A state of harmony with ourselves and each other {= humans, animals, and nature.}

Today, across the planet, we seem to be farther away from this paradise than ever before.

For millennia religions have promised that by following their commands we’ll have a good life and heaven in the afterlife. Then science and medicine promised a good life by taking their pills. Technologists now promise a good life by merging with artificial intelligence. New age and new mixtures of spirituality and science promise a better life by following their recipes.
But despite billions of people meditating, praying, doing yoga, confessing, … people who are saintly and sagely are very, very few, and our health, and peace and harmony on Earth seems increasingly out reach. Is there something fundamental we are missing?
Do we need a new story of what it means to be human? A story highlighting our connectedness while celebrating all our differences?
A new story in which the heart’s purpose is not pumping blood but opening consciousness towards a new experience of being human. A consciousness that might help solve the existential challenges that life on Earth is facing.

It is no longer about what separates us.
It is about what will unite all of us.

Our flowering hearts.

What is a flowering heart?

In its flowering state, the human heart becomes a fountain of insight, inspiration, imagination, intuition, direct knowing, and guidance. And, of course, the source of all beautiful human heart qualities like love, honor, compassion, courage, empathy, justice, …

The flowering heart can see beyond the polarized views of the mind. It can see how seemingly opposed and contradicting aspects are part of something bigger, the whole.

The flowering heart is your compass and guide, your lighthouse and teacher. Whatever you want to call it.

It knows the truth.
And it will guide you.

To who you need to be.
And what you need to do.

What will a world led by flowering hearts look like?

Often it’s a small kindness and connecting that makes a beautiful moment and nurtures our heart.
Share a heart moment that encouraged and empowered you!
Your story might have the same effect on other hearts … and even cause a domino effect 😉
A new era has begun. It’s the age of Enheartenment.
{ from ‘cogito ergo sum’ [=I think therefore I am] to ‘I feel therefore I am’ }
{ from ‘mind over matter’ to ‘heart moves mind’ }


In our film, you’ll discover groundbreaking research from the HeartMath Institute. For over three decades, they have created innovative programs to transform health, wellness, and performance, based on Heart Rate Variability.
Here are some of the fine institutions using HeartMath programs to improve the quality of life of their members, employees, and the communities they serve.

You can explore and experience stories from our movie in your own life.
We encourage you to have your own experiences. Without personal experience, you can only believe or doubt what we {and others} tell you.

Having your own experience will take you beyond that box of belief and doubt.

We like to propose that true knowledge {and transformation} is based on personal experience. So, happy exploring!
Here are things you can easily do at home that can help you reconnect to your heart’s and Earth’s intelligence. We’d love to hear about your experiences.
We are preparing two citizen science research projects that explore how you can use mood-cycle tracking and heartwave practices to get in sync with Earth and cosmic cycles. More on that soon.
