3-Day Workshop with Dr. Jeff Tarrant and Thomas Feiner
"I spend a few hours of meditation every day - if we get neuroscience e-based enlightment - then no need for these things" - Dalai Lama
What is meditation?
Meditation is just an umbrella term that combines many different methods of mental training. It used to be associated with religion, spirituality and esotericism. It evokes images of monks and nuns who lead a self-centered way of life in monasteries and places far from the world. Or one thinks of ascetic yogis who linger deeply in the lotus position.
But today, meditation has long since arrived in our modern world - as a relaxation procedure with proven effectiveness in many symptoms.
But despite the obvious appeal and increased accessibility of meditation training with programs such as mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), it remains a significant challenge for many individuals to maintain a consistent practice. Early meditators often complain that they do not know if they are “doing it right” or give up before realizing any significant benefits.
How can Neurofeedback help in meditation practice?
By providing the meditator with immediate feedback on their brainwave state, a Neurotherapist can help define and refine the process, potentially increasing motivation, interest, and impact. Incorporating neurofeedback into a meditation practice can potentially help with these concerns. In addition, because meditation and neurofeedback are both involved in the training of mental states, it seems obvious that these practices could be used to enhance each other, either in an attempt to achieve deeper states of meditation or by combining them as a treatment intervention for specific mental health conditions such as ADHD, anxiety, or depression.
What can I expect from this workshop?
This is a hands-on, practical workshop. As part of this training, you will receive both 2-channel and sLORETA NeuroMeditation protocols for each meditation style and taught how to modify them for your individual purposes. The morning session each day will be devoted to didactic learning while the afternoon each day will be practicum-style, allowing an opportunity for participants to experience each of the NeuroMeditation protocols. The approaches to EEG NeuroMeditation taught in this workshop can be used immediately to achieve deeper states of meditation or as a treatment intervention for mental health conditions such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, personality disorders, or PTSD.
Note: This 3-day workshop is designed for neurofeedback professionals. While we will be primarily using BrainMaster equipment, protocols can be adapted for other systems. We will explore both 2 channel and sLORETA protocols for each style.
