Academic Evaluation

Since 2008 three different academic evaluations of the Earthheart concept have been published. One is about the positive physical and emotional effects that the Earthheart concept has on people’s health. The second is about how the concept effects people’s personal development individually, collectively and spiritually and the third one is about how the concept has affected individual and social development for young women who have participated.

They are written in Swedish, the first two have an abstract in English.
