HeartMath and racism (IEA 2017 part 2 of 3)

Here’s more I learned from Philip Shepherd, and everything I learned from Sheva Carr at IEA 2017. And of course, we talk about racism.

Some fabulous speakers on scene,
A focus on practice: that’s keen.
We’re still old and white,
But there’s a lot we got right
at IEA 2017!
