The Heart of the Buddha (a Vibrant Heart) is the birth right of every human being. When we look into the heart in its purest sense, the Buddha says the mind or the heart in its original nature is illumines and brightly shining. But it gets entangled in fear and contraction, in a small sense of self and loses this understanding of its original ease, purity and openness. Through a cultivation of awareness and compassion and a letting go of entanglements, fears, confusion and greed, one can access the openness of the heart and the small sense of self will drop away.
Dr. Cynthia’s Vibrant Heart show will guide you to understand the importance heart disease, its risk factors and the impact that heart disease has on women’s health. But more importantly, Dr. Cynthia will guide you away from the fear of heart disease to a place of peace and serenity to embrace and celebrate the knowledge that a Vibrant Heart is within your grasp. It is through the divine qualities of loving kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity that you can return to this nature state of the heart, which is our birthright.
About Dr. Cynthia Thaik
Harvard-trained, Dr. Cynthia Thaik is a HEART doctor that practices with her HEART. She delivers security and peace of mind to her clients by orchestrating behavioral and mindset shifts to evoke lasting transformational changes in their health, well-being, vitality, energy, and creativity. She has helped thousands of people make changes to transform their lives through the ways they think, feel, and act. Intuitively, she has known that she would serve this calling since the age of five, after accompanying her physician mother to the medical clinic in their home country of Myanmar, formerly known as Burma. There, she witnessed the pure hands-on art of healing, free from the modern-day challenges of drugs, bureaucracy, and the threat of malpractice. This experience laid dormant deep within her as she navigated her American life, completed her modern medical training, and subsequently began practicing Western medicine. Years later, the demands of solo practice, a strained marriage and three small children created a toll that left her disconnected and drained. It wasn’t until the opening of her wellness center three years ago—where she guided her patients to experience tremendous improvement in their health and well-being through integrative lifestyle practices that focused on nutrition, fitness, and spiritual or meditative practices—that those early childhood memories of the art of self-directed healing were reawakened. Rediscovering her life purpose has lent authenticity to her work and filled her with joy, energy and spirit. She believes the mind-body connection for health is best served through the practice of being centered and present in each moment. A practicing Buddhist, Dr. Cynthia is now on a mission to deliver that message about healing through her new book, Your Vibrant Heart: RestoringHealth, Strength & Spirit from the Body’s Core.
Dr. Cynthia began her professional training at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. From there, she completed her internal medicine and cardiology training at the Harvard’s training programs (Beth Israel, Massachusetts General, and Brigham & Women’s hospitals). She manages two successful cardiology clinics and is the founder of Revitalize-U, a wellness center focused on health, nutrition, weight loss, and detoxification. Dr. Cynthia has served as the co-director of the Women’s Cardiac Risk Screening Program at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center and was formerly the assistant clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Medicine. Among her recognitions are the National Institute of Health’s National Research Service Award, the American College of Cardiology’s Cardiovascular Research Award, and the Raymond Kalil Memorial Cardiovascular Research Award. She is the proud recipient of the Katherine Swan Ginsburg Award for best exemplifying humanity, dignity, and compassion in the practice of medicine. Beyond her academic achievements, she is most proud of the praises that she receives from her patients. Care, compassion, service, and excellence are words used to describe her style of practice.
