ART FOR THE HEART
Some art work is to make a statement; some is for decorating a home or business; some is to stir the emotions from angst to outrage; some is to show a view of the artist reflecting the turbulence of the current time.
Michael Dursts art is very different.
He uses his background as a psychologist and hypnotherapist, to paint scenes that produce a sense of calm and appreciation. Soon, just a glance at the painting creates an increase of inner peace and tranquility.
HEARTSCAPES ARE TO PROVIDE INNER COHERENCE
In the last decade research has shown that the heart has its own brain, which communicates with the entire body system. When stressed, your heart rhythm has an irregular, jagged, incoherent pattern. When you shift into a more positive emotional state, the heart rhythm pattern changes to a smoother, wave-like, coherent pattern.
This is when physical healing takes place and the best decisions are made that affect ones personal and professional life. Dr. Durst is trained in the use of HeartMath, a technique that measures and teaches people to control their own heart-rate variability. Thousands of people around the world are using the Heart Rate Variability system to reduce their stress, improve performance in business and sports, increase awareness and intelligence, and create better relationships.
Dr. Dursts paintings are specifically designed to increase ones level of coherence and are especially useful for medical professionals in their offices, clinics and hospitals. The purpose of Dr. Dursts art is to create physical, mental, and spiritual healing and well-being.
