Abstract

This study examines the effect of a HeartMath workshop on physiological coherence, sense of coherence, zone, mood and resilience perceptions. A quasi-experimental design, involving mixed quantitative and qualitative research methodologies and techniques, was used. The sample consisted of 10 workshop participants, 5 males and 5 females, with mean age of 22.10. Participants were matched for age and gender with 10 control group persons. Statistical analysis revealed significant within group, pre to post workshop results for physiological coherence, sense of coherence, zone and mood, with improvement in resilience. Workshop and control between group results were significant for sense of coherence, with zone, mood and resilience effects also in the expected direction. Thematic content analysis revealed participants' perceptions of experiences supported the quantitative results. Recommendations for future interventions are discussed.
