Giving a Voice to Nature:
A Global Network for Monitoring Tree Potentials
with Rollin McCraty, Theo Grace and Justin Michael Williams
Dr. Rollin McCraty, Director of Research at HeartMath Institute, Theo Grace and Justin Michael Williams joined the Pulse to celebrate Earth Day. During this special event Rollin shares about the new Global Tree Monitoring project, and will facilitate a heart-based meditation focused on trees and nature systems and Theo and Justin open our hearts with their presence and music.
The Global Tree Monitoring project is part of a broader initiative to conduct interconnectivity research which is testing the hypothesis that all life forms are interconnected in a rich tapestry of intersecting magnetic energy fields. We aim to reveal this ancient hypothesis under the lens of modern science. HMI has created new equipment and software for simultaneously measuring the electrical potentials generated from trees located around the planet. This is an exciting citizen scientist project that encourages people from around to sponsor and host a sensor on their favorite tree. We will use the data from the global tree network to explore research questions such as:
Are trees affected by human emotions? Do the electrical responses in multiple trees correlate to events that trigger an emotional outpouring in large numbers of people? Can trees help predict earthquakes? Do trees communicate energetically with each other over large distances and how does the biofield of trees have an uplifting effect on people?Learn this and much more during this special Earth Day focused Pulse.
Wisdom, Music & Coherence Cultivation in Community
In heart-centered coherence our impact is exponentially greater than the sum of our parts!
Rollin McCraty, Ph.D.
Rollin McCraty, Ph.D. of Boulder Creek, California, is one of the primary creators of the Global Coherence Initiative (GCI) and director of research for GCI and HeartMath Institute. He is project coordinator and the principle designer of GCI’s scientific component, the Global Coherence Monitoring System and its international network of magnetic field sensor sites. A professor at Florida Atlantic University, McCraty heads up HMI and GCI researchers investigating the relationship between human and geomagnetic field environments and the interconnectedness of and communication among all living things. They are studying how these fields act as central synchronizing signals within the body, carry emotional information and serve as key mediators of energetic interactions between people and living systems. McCraty holds numerous memberships, including with the American Autonomic Society, Pavlovian Society, National Association for Psychological Science, Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback and Society for Scientific Exploration. He has written scientific articles for many professional journals, given interviews for feature articles and television segments and appeared in numerous documentary films.
