Combining Ancient Wisdom and Modern Neuroscience for the Implementation and Assessment of Peak States
Thursday, 10/25 at 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM
This course will discuss combining modern neuroscience and ancient practices for the achievement and assessment of peak states of consciousness. Attendees will explore the neurophysiological components of peak states, what they look like in the brain, different components of state awareness, and tools used to assess, support, and train these states.
This course will focus on the neuroscience of peak states and inherent trait changes, including what happens on a neurophysiological level while in peak states. Explore EEG assisted meditation, attention and state awareness, where “state” refers to the cognitive, sensory integration and self referential aspects that can arise during a peak experience: the loss of self-consciousness and and how it is essential for states of flow. Learn about tools for assessment, training, and state attainment such as neurofeedback, heart rate variability, TCM, and a number of new neurostimulation technologies such as pulsed electromagnetic fields, transcranial direct current, and cryotherapy.
