Heart Based Institute conducted a number of studies, discussed in detail below, to measure the impact of the heart based approach on stress, resiliency, burnout, and positive feelings such as peace, calm, joy, and gratitude.

Personal and Work-Related Benefits

Results from Vaya Health

Vaya Health, a managed care organization providing North Carolina Medicaid funds to mental health agencies, conducted a Kirkpatrick Model of evaluation staff who completed training in Heart Based Meditation. A six-month post-training follow-up assessment revealed high levels of sustained impact.

We also partnered with MAHEC, the largest continuing health education center in Western North Carolina, and conducted training sessions with over 150 human service providers. Each student took an assessment immediately before and after the training indicating their stress, relaxation, and other criteria on a 10-point scale. 

As illustrated below, using a scale rating of 1 to 10, participants rated themselves on average before and after attending a Heart Based Meditation workshop. After just one six-hour course, participants reported a dramatic positive impact.
