HEART First App: Therapeutic eToolkit Overview
WHY THE APP NAME “HEART FIRST™”?
The “HEART” in the “HEART First” App name is an acronym describing what the App is: A “Health-Enhancing Artistic Relief eToolkit” (“HEART”).
THE “FIRST” in the HEART First™ App names serves as constant reminder of 2 important elements related to Cancer: (1) A constant reminder research has concluded to start mind-soul stress-relief start at point of diagnosis as part of a total mind-body-soul Cancer Treatment Plan 2) When Cancer touches us, be it as patient or caregiver, because of the suffering it causes, we should practice all we do to help each other leading “heart first” .
WHAT’S IN THE HEART FIRST APP eTOOLKIT?
The eToolkit contains 184 individual therapeutic artistic relief eTools evenly divided, 26 apiece, between 7 therapeutic artistic expression types purposed to deliver real-time stress and anxiety relief and sanctuary from cancer’s physical, mindful and soulful challenges:
(1) 26 Original Written ‘A to Z’ Meditations on “The Purpose of Life”
a. Each starting with a different Letter of the Alphabet ‘A to Z’
1. Each Meditation is light-hearted, introspective, thought-provoking, fun in their presentation, easy-to-digest
That’ve been re-imagined into their therapeutic artistic brethren by a group of gifted artists from around the globe:
(2) 26 ‘A to Z’ Soothing Narration Recitations over 26 Original Music Compositions
(3) 26 ‘A to Z’ Original Contemplative Visual Art Pieces
(4) 26 ‘A to Z’ Original Musical Composition Sanctuaries (11-minute average length)
(5) 26 ‘A to Z’ Meditative Video Vignettes (4 Original, 22 chosen by Author from stock footage)
(6) COMING in 2020!!: 26 ‘A to Z’ Heavenly Aromatherapy Scents (packaged/sold separately)
For easy identification, navigation and then integration with each other in the App’s eToolkit, the 26 Written Meditations are: (1) Alphabetically lettered ‘A to Z’ (2) Each meditation is identified by just a “1-word title” starting with that letter (3) Every other therapeutic artistic expression type - narration, visual art, music, video and aromatherapy - shares the same “title” of the particular Lettered Answer that inspired their creation or choice.
To create the Original Visual Art Pieces, 26 exceptional visual artists, ages 20-70, were assigned, (using an intuitive to assign them their letter) a Lettered Meditation as inspiration from which to create an interpretive contemplative art piece reflecting the spirit of their specific written meditation.
To create the Original Music Sanctuaries, 26 exceptional gifted musicians ages 25-75 were assigned (using an intuitive to assign them their letter) a Lettered Meditation as inspiration from which to create an 11-minute (approx. length) composition reflecting the heart of their specific lettered answer.
This effect created a synchronicity-driven coherence amongst each of the therapeutic artistic compositions, and defined the overall therapeutic artistic “soul” for that particular Lettered Meditation.
HEART First’s “SECRET (therapeutic) SAUCE”: Introducing “CARE” or “Coping And Relief Experiences”
Jay’s genius moment was envisioning how to create therapeutic magic – turning “HEART” into “CARE”; series of 11-minute average movie- like “Coping and Relief Experiences”.
Working with a 10-time Northern California Emmy-winning editor, one ‘A to Z’ art piece from each art therapy type is selected, pooled, then edited into a whole, creating an immersive experience exponentially more powerful than its individual parts.
You will receive 52 (pre-packaged) CAREs with HEART First, embedded as 1-click links so as not to take up valuable storage space on your electronic devices:
(1) 26 full-length Lettered ‘A to Z’ “Deep Dive” CAREs using just the artistic expressions from that letter.
a. 11-minute average length; each an immersive relief, relaxation and sanctuary experience
(2) 26 abbreviated Lettered “Quick-Relief” ‘A to Z’ CAREs; shortened 4-minute versions of the full-length CARE
a. Each 4 minutes long; a consolidated “quick format” relief/relaxation experience
