What does the Boston Marathon winner describing her “runner’s high” have in common with the yogi emerging from his cave in the Himalayas? When each of them is hooked up to an EEG, their brain patterns are similar. They are both in a “flow” state.
As science has mapped the neural activity found in these peak states, it has reverse-engineered their signature characteristics. Neurofeedback now allows experts to train people in achieving these states quickly.
In this weekend workshop, train in the process of inducing flow as a daily experience with Dawson Church, renowned integrative health researcher and award-winning author of Bliss Brain: The Neuroscience of Remodeling Your Brain for Resilience, Creativity, and Joy.
As the startling conclusions of Dawson’s research show, neural remodeling goes farther than scientists have previously understood. We don't just feel more blissful as a temporary experience; the changes are literally hard-wired into our brains, becoming stable and enduring personality traits.
Studies show that in as little as two days, you can learn the neurochemical patterns of flow, and reach levels of experience normally found only after years of meditative practice. This “Bliss Brain” is a state in which joy is natural. It nurtures the personality traits of patience, compassion, creativity, and love. And it can be yours.
