You will be monitored by expertly trained and certifiedAwakened Mind coaches:

Gary Groesbeck BCIAC Fellow,EFT-ADV.

Awakened Mind training is assisted by Neuro-monitoringof the EEG brain waves. You will be comfortably hooked up to sensors on your head and another finger monitor for checking heart coherence. In just a few relaxing sessions of coaching,guided meditations, breathing and relaxation instructions you will begin to come into a powerful body, brain and heart coherence.

"The AWAKENED MIND brainwave pattern combines the intuitive, empathetic radar of the delta waves, the creative inspiration, personal insight, and spiritual awareness of the theta waves, the bridging capacity and relaxed, detached, awareness of the alpha waves, and the external attention and ability to consciously process thought of beta waves, all at the same time. It is a brainwave pattern shared by people in higher states of consciousness regardless of their philosophy, theology or meditation technique. This brainwave pattern can be found during "peak experience" and in all forms of creativity and high performance. The awakened mind is also the "ah-ha," appearing at the exact instant of solving the problem, or getting an insight." Anna Wise

There is a state in which you are fully alive, authentic and spontaneous. You are open to all of your feelings and intuition. You are connected to your strength, your truth, and your bodies subtlest energies. You are not afraid to know anything about yourself or others. We call this the Awakened Heart/Mind state. In this state you can embrace your creativity and see life in all its possibilities.

"You feel a deep sense of peace and internal balance-you are at harmony with yourself, with others, and with your larger environment. You experience increased buoyancy and vitality. Your senses are enlivened -every aspect of your perceptual experience seems richer, more textured. Surprisingly, you feel invigorated even when you would usually have felt tired and drained. Things that usually would have irked you just don't "get to you" as much. Your body feels regenerated-your mind clear. At least for a period of time, decisions become obvious as priorities clarify and inner conflict dissolves. Intuitive insight suddenly provides convenient solutions to problems that had previously consumed weeks of restless thought. Your creativity flows freely. You may experience a sense of greater connectedness with others and feelings of deep fulfillment." AppreciativeHeart

As the third millennium begins, we have a multitude of technological resources to help with our health and well-being. While technology improves beyond recognition, humankind is simultaneously undergoing an unprecedented evolutionary leap. For countless people today, a return to spirituality, an increased awakening of awareness, and a craving for an experience of the ineffable are prime motivating forces. This workshop combines these two streams, technology and spirituality, by using EEG (electroencephalography).

  • What is the Awakened Mind - Why is it different from your normal waking state?
  • Connection between breath, heart, emotions and the Awakened Mind
  • How improving brain function can quell anxiety, panic, depression, worrying, chronic pain, etc.
  • Relation of the bodies energy fields to negative emotions.

Preparing for Mind Mirror hook-ups prior to meditation workshop session.

Over twenty-five years of investigationsinto the brainwave patterns of 'higher states of consciousness' has shown the interrelationship of brainwave frequencies that develops as this awakening occurs. This subtle and individualized combination of beta, alpha, theta, and delta can be identified, encouraged, and trained. Problems that occur with spiritual awakening-for example, inordinate 'psychic' sensitivity and accelerated kundalini experiences-can be explained and assisted by studying EEG. Meditation combined with EEG monitoring can help to regulate this process and to develop self-mastery."

Workshop instructors are:
Donna Bach, Traditional Naturopath EFT-ADV.
Gary Groesbeck BCIAC Fellow, EFT-ADV

Donna and Gary also give private Awakened Mind coaching: $65 per session or $350 paid in advance for a package of six sessions. They will travel to lead workshops in your location. These can be one day, three day, or five day workshops. They are also planning international workshops for those who would like to combine travel with their training. Future workshops are planned in Holland, Belgium, Spain, Greece, Peru, Hawaii, and Bali.

Basic / Advanced Workshop

The high-performance mind is clearer, crisper, and far more adaptable. Feelings become more accessible, quicker to transform. Understanding flows easily between the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious mind, expanding intuition, insight, creativity, and empathy. Developing a high-performance mind means you are able to access, when necessary, the state of awareness most advantageous to any given circumstance—and then knowing how to make use of that state.

Through brainwave coaching using neuro-monitoring for beta, alpha, theta, delta, and gamma, this workshop teaches you methods to create the elements for an awakened mind, the brainwave pattern of optimum performance, maximum creativity, and spiritual insight.

Employing state, content, and awareness, you learn to take advantage of your brainwaves to support higher functionality for self-healing, expanded creativity, strengthened relationships, and acquiring deeper intuitive insights. The Awakened Mind state is a strong predictor of business success among CEOs.

Advanced workshops will also explore attentional focus and the relationship of the Awakened Mind to lucid dreaming, out-of-body experience, remote viewing, shamanic journeying, "shadow" work, and energy healing, depending on interest. This training has also been found beneficial for Monroe work.

The workshop brings together biofeedback and neurofeedback monitoring with guided meditation, sensualization, and deep psychophysiological relaxation that will allow you mastery of your own states of consciousness. The Mind Mirror™EEG will be employed to determine brainwave patterns, and heartcoherence will gauge the level of arousal and relaxation of your autonomic nervous system,highlighting the interrelationship between your body and your mind.
