Special Six Week Course:

What: Introduction to Heart Math 

The BALM is famous for bringing its members a wide variety of tools and techniques to increase their ability to get their own life back while becoming their loved one's BEST chance at recovery. Heart Math is an additional process we are bringing to our families to enhance your ability to practice Steps 1-3. This course is being provided as a gift to our community by one of our BALM Coaches, Anne Marie Clear, who has been practicing Heart Math for 25 years and came to the BALM two years ago to be able to address the special challenges SUD brings. She says that her practice of Heart Math accelerated her ability to internalize the BALM and the BALM improved and enhanced her relationships, helping her to be her loved one's BEST chance. As a result, she  is generously sharing the Heart Math tools with all of us! 

When: On Demand Only for BALM Members after the live Course Completes in mid-June
