Upcoming Residential Retreat
NeuroAwakening Retreat, Nov 24-26, 2017 San Juan Bautista, CA
Neurofeedback Enhanced Meditation Research Study
Echo Rock Neurotherapy has been documenting how the brain responds to direct neurofeedback combined with meditation instructions. Numerous case studies show that a few seconds of direct neurofeedback combined with specific awareness practices trigger exactly the pattern of letting go that is described in the earliest Buddhist writings. In other words, neuroscience may validate the brain’s predictable pattern of awakening that meditators have observed for millennia. Specific markers of meditation progress can now be seen in real time during the few minutes after neurofeedback, instead of over decades.
Clinicians at Echo Rock Neurotherapy have observed that combining a few seconds of direct neurofeedback with classic meditation exercises produces spontaneous results — beyond what either method typically yields by itself. Even more interesting, the results are predictable, and they carry over into daily life:
- Calm awareness
- Clarity and confidence
- Focus and boundaries
- Ease in choosing skillful thoughts
These rewards are the natural state of a relaxed brain. When the brain receives specific feedback about how it is wasting energy on regrets and worries, a lifetime of perceived traumas let go. Awareness settles into the present moment.
What if meditation was easy? What if the profound rewards were immediate? Clinicians at Echo Rock Neurotherapy have observed how combining a few seconds of direct neurofeedback with specific meditative exercises produces:
- Relaxed Spacious Mind
- Lighthearted Happiness
- Bright Clarity and Confidence
- Steady Contentment
- These are the natural rewards of letting stress go. When the brain receives specific, direct feedback about how it is wasting energy on regrets and worries, it simply drops its lifetime of defences against past traumas.
- Awareness settles into the present moment.
This special weekend includes:
- Individual neurofeedback treatment and coaching with Grant Rudolph
- Learning to recognize the biomarkers of progressive meditation states
- One-on-one guidance in the Six R’s meditation method with Scott Jordan
- Accommodation and meals at St Francis Retreat Center for 3 days and 2 nights
This NeuroAwakening Retreat a chance to draft off the slipstream of effective senior practitioners; to learn from the thought- leaders at the practical edge of neurofeedback enhanced meditation. Grant Rudolph, Neurotherapist LMFT During fifteen thousand neurofeedback sessions at Echo Rock Neurotherapy, they have made an exciting discovery: a few seconds of direct neurofeedback, combined with specific awareness practices, trigger exactly the same pattern of letting go that is described in the earliest Buddhist writings. In other words, neuroscience is validating the brain’s predictable pattern of awakening, the pattern that meditators have observed and described for millennia. The traditional markers of advanced meditation progress can now be seen in real time during the few minutes after neurofeedback, instead of over decades.
This approach to meditation is fun to do and immediately effective. Short practice sessions offer immediate relief from worries and anxieties. Participants quickly acquire practical tools and skills that result in life-affirming up lifted change. Tranquil awareness practice deconditions the causes of unhappiness and lead to greater contentment in active lifestyle. Once learned, these meditative skills combine to decrease habitual reactive behavior and promote greater conscious responsiveness.
