The Self-Training Program is designed for Mind Mirror owners who wish to study with an expert in hardware and software usage. This cognitive study is interspersed with a series of mind-awakening meditations that provide the brainwave data analyzed by the teacher and student.
The 4.5-day Self-Training Program, focused entirely on the student's needs, smoothly integrates the hands-on experience of the software with a personal meditation retreat.
The self-trainer learns:
the basics of Awakened Mind theory
how to hook up to the various sensors (EEG, GSR, and BVP)
how to set up the hardware and computer
software usage and all data analysis tools
how to read, interpret and advance his/her brainwave patterns and states of consciousness.
At the end of the program, the self-trainer receives a set of recommendations for further consciousness development.
This program, when scheduled for the full 4.5 days, is equivalent to the first seminar in the Practitioner Training Program. For those with time constraints, fewer than 4.5 days can be scheduled.
In a 10-year study conducted by McKinsey,( https://www.mckinsey.com/business-functions/organization/our-insights/increasing-the-meaning-quotient-of-work) top executives reported being five times more productive in flow. According to these same McKinsey researchers, if we could increase the time we spend in flow by 15-20%, overall workplace productivity would almost double. The Awakened Mind state creates the ground necessary for this to occur naturally.
The Awakened Mind State, technically defined as an "optimal state of consciousness where we feel our best and perform our best," the term takes its name from the sensation it confers. In flow, every action, every decision, arises seamlessly from the last. In this state, we are so focused on the task at hand that all else falls away.
DARPA, for example, found that military snipers trained in a state of flow learned 230 percent faster than normal. Scientists at Advanced Brain Monitoring in Carlsbad, California, ran a parallel civilian study and found that flow cut in half the amount of time it took to train novice marksmen up to the expert level.
Flow's impact on creativity may be its most important role in today's accelerated climate. While everyone else is driven to distraction, people in flow are adapting-- they're using the state to take performance to the next level."
Flow states have triggers-- pre-conditions that lead to more flow. Since flow is a state of total absorption, all are ways of heightening and tightening attention, driving focus into the present moment.
These facts also tell us that those Silicon Valley companies with "fail forward" as their de-facto motto have an incredible advantage. If employees don't have the space to fail, then they don't have the ability to take risks. And if you're not incentivizing risk, you're denying access to flow.
Second, flow science is already being applied in business. Some companies (Facebook, Google) are focused on individual triggers, while others (Toyota, Patagonia) have already made flow a fundamental part of their core philosophy. Thus, it's not just that tapping into flow can help an organization keep pace with an exponential world, it's that there's a good chance that your competition is already applying these principles and soon-- because of the state's significant amplification of performance and productivity-- there may be no other way to keep up.

Group brainwave training offers inner expansion in the synergistic company of like-minded people. Enjoy relaxation, self-discovery, healing and transformation meditations while making tremendous strides in awareness in only a day, weekend, or week.
Participating in a group training with other people is the quickest and most affordable way for new and seasoned explorers to deepen in awareness, flow, unlock potential, and discover new ways of being in the world.
All-day, weekend, and five-day meditation retreats open with an illustration and discussion of the Cade-Wise brainwave map of consciousness and how to access deep-state of flow in order to awaken and evolve the mind.
Using this introduction as a touchstone, participants sit back and enjoy a series of guided exercises designed to familiarize them with the feeling of the five primary brainwave categories: gamma, beta, alpha, theta, and delta. Each meditation leads to personal discovery and systematically orchestrates the awakened mind. (Some retreats focus on the evolved mind pattern and production of gamma frequencies.).
At the end of the retreat, the practitioner privately reviews with each participant his/her brainwave pattern drawings and computer recordings, in order to further match objective measurements to subjective experience.
Closing recommendations for further development provide ideas the participant can use for further growth alone.
Group brainwave training is modeled on the popular seminars led for thirty years by the late Anna Wise at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, one of the oldest and most respected human potential centers in the world. In this training, people make remarkable advances that produce life-changing insights and positive, lasting results.
Recounting experiences with the whole group provides everyone with important insights. Participants make new friends and leave with a deep understanding of how to master their minds in order to master their lives.

Our awakened mind practitioners will help you discover this inner resource in deep-state flow tailored to your particular needs.
Private sessions consist of either a Brainwave Profile, a diagnostic tool in which you perform different tasks eyes open and closed, or a guided exercise geared to self-discovery, healing or transformation. In addition, practiced meditators may wish to receive direct-feedback training for awakened mind peak performance.
Lasting one or two hours, individual sessions include an explanation of brainwave patterns, the Mind Mirror hook-up, and the Brainwave Profile or a guided brain wave exercise. Post-session discussion includes a shared review of sketched drawings and computer-recorded brainwave patterns, followed by recommendations for further development.
Some people book double sessions or private retreats to save travel time and reduce costs.
While monitoring your brainwave patterns in real-time, the practitioner can help you:
Deepen into a profound flow state
Sharpen your thinking and become more lucid, intelligent and aware
Increase feelings of inner peace, unity, and well-being
Retrieve insights into personal or work challenges
Unblock and clear repressed issues to release suppressed creativity
More fully awaken and expand your consciousness
Self-actualize in life work that meets your needs and goals
Connect with your spirit for universal peace and guidance.
How long it takes to fully awaken the mind depends on where people are to begin with and their level of commitment to meditation and the path of self-mastery and conscious evolution.
During your session, you will learn meditation techniques and create internal landmarks that will help you awaken on your own. You will want to!
... Because awakening is an adventure in consciousness that will improve every aspect of your life.
The Practitioner Training course is designed for people seeking a professional career as a certified Awakened Mind Consciousness Trainer or Coach. These two career tracks are open to anyone with a background in the self-help disciplines who feels an impulse to develop his/her own consciousness and help others do the same. The only requirement is a deep dedication to EEG neuro-monitoring as a powerful tool for consciousness expansion.
People from all walks of life study with us to become certified awakened mind practitioners: meditators, bodyworkers, scientists, psychologists, physicians, neurofeedback and biofeedback therapists, NLP practitioners, software developers, visual and performing artists, mind researchers, and, of course, consciousness explorers.
People who intend to work only with private clients take Seminars 1-3 toward Awakened Mind Coach certification. People who wish to work with both private clients and groups certify through Seminars 1-4 as an Awakened Mind Practitioner.
