Passion into Action and Patt Lind-Kyle

On January 23rd, 2010 over 250 women will come together in Nevada County to put their passion into action!  In addition to creating meaningful connections, collaborating with other women, and expanding your possibilities, one of our reasons for launching this event is to inspire and support the great work you are doing or want to do.  In order to nourish your passion we’ve established the track, Taking Care of You.  Your health and wellness is essential to leading the life you want to live, including mind, body and spirit.

During the event author and consultant, Patt Lind-Kyle will demonstrate that reaching our full potential and unleashing our passion is about mind over matter.  She says she has discovered new tools to “help individuals become more effective with their brain/mind potential.”

You’ll have an opportunity to experience Patt’s work during her session, Change your Mind Change the World: Women Making a Positive Difference.   She shares with us the purpose of her passion and why it’s so important for women to participate

1. How are you putting your passion into action?

My book was just published last month called, “Heal Your Mind Rewire Your Brain” that is how I am putting my passion into action.  I am passionate about the fact that our mind and brain is the key to unlock our potential in our selves and in the world. To be an effective leader in the world one must know how our brain/mind works. The increased stress of our fast passed life and our earth being in such peril led me to create a mind-training program.

2. What do you love most about the work you are doing?

I love that we have choice to change our mind and brain and thus change our life.  Scientific research has validated this through the recent discovery of  neuroplasticity.  Neuroplasticity means the brain is flexible and adaptable by changing its structure and function to what ever you want.  Research is also   validating the relationship between our thoughts and behavior.  These two distinguishes how our emotional thoughts block our potential. From recent research it is now very clear that the brain has a negativity bias. It is this negative bias that creates mental stress, agitation, and physical disease.  The brain    and mind can be trained to over rule this negative bias. We can train the brain because of its changeability. Mental training opens awareness and teaches us how to make the changes needed in our minds to create new behavior. We just need to know how to use our brain so we can be the best most efficient, clear and directed leader in whatever capacity we choose.

3. What were the motivating factors that inspired you to get involved and share your passion?

For 38 years I have had a meditation practice experiencing many silent retreats that let me closely observe my mind. In my 6-month silent retreat I experienced the mind at peace for months. when I came out of the retreat I realized not many people would do what I have done to find that peace. A     question came to me, “How can I make it clear and easy for others to also know a peaceful state of mind instead of such stress?” After the retreat I discovered an EEG brain machine that monitors the brain.  Thus, I was able to show clients their brain when it was in peace or stress and how to change     the brain/mind by mental training.  After working with clients and teaching classes my clients encouraged me to write the book.

4. Who were some female role models or mentors that inspired your work and passion?

A Buddhist nun was my seed teacher. She encouraged and taught me over the years and finally told me I was to begin teaching.

5. Why is the work you are doing so important for everyday women?

Every woman gets caught up in this fast paced life today and lost in the machinations of her mind.  It is so easy for her attention to get side tracked or diverted.  Training  woman to have the ability to develop intention, attention, awareness and receptivity are the fundamental tools that the brain uses to create effective leaders.

6.  Why is it so important for women to participate in an event like the Passion into Action Conference?

To explore her worth, find new ways to become more of who she is and to be with other women in a creative community.

6. What are you hoping will be the biggest take-away for women at the Passion into Action Conference?

An entry point for women to use the tools of her own mind and brain and to make a difference in her life and in the world.

The See Jane Do Passion into Action Conference takes place on Sat. January 23rd, 2010 at the Holiday Inn in Grass Valley, CA.  The event includes keynote speakers, Nina Simons, Gloria Feldt, and Linda Tarr-Whelan plus over fifteen workshop leaders.  For tickets go to www.seejanedo.com or Briar Patch Co-op in Grass Valley.

“Yes, you can teach your old brain new tricks! Breakthroughs in the scientific understanding of how the brain works have shown us that our brains are constantly rewiring themselves in response to events in our lives.This handbook applies this new science in practical ways, by giving us a training program to re-pattern our behavior and thereby change the ways our brain is wired. It interrupts our suffering, sharpens our mental abilities and corrects our cognitive imbalances. As we learn these mental skills, the neural patterns of our brains begin to change and we literally reprogram the neural networks through which information and energy flows.

If you’ve heard about neuroplasticity, epigenetics, psychoneuroimmunology and other scientific advances, but didn’t know how you could apply these breakthroughs to improve your life, you will find Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain a treasure trove of resources. It provides a clear, step-by-step program that shows you how to correct the imbalances of the stressed-out brain, and install a peaceful state of mind.”

– Dawson Church

“{This} is the type of book I would recommend for a left-brain prisoner who needs loosening up or an energetic practitioner expecting to be challenged on the validity of their practice. The basic premise is that whenever different parts of the brain developed, it opened people up to different possibilities. The prefrontal cortex, (most recent developed at a mere 100,000 years ago), can communicate with the other parts, helping to align them to the meditation mindset and change certain negative perceptions.

The first hundred pages describe the brain and its parts in minute detail. While interesting, I honestly followed the carrot of “brain retraining” skills promised later in the book. Instead, in the second half, I got about ten meditation exercises, the Enneagram system, some Buddhist tales and the author’s case stories. This section felt lopsided in comparison to the densely cerebral beginning. I felt like the pre-universe did, awaiting a Big Bang….which actually turned out to be a little pop. As for “brain plasticity,” it is Newspeak for the brains ability to mimic others and grow new pathways; wonderful, yes, but how new is this concept actually?

Lest I do this book a disservice, if I had focused more on the journey I might have enjoyed the book for what it is: an intricate tour through our fabulous brains, a great brain-hand simile, and a continuous and detailed saga of how meditation can help people in this day and age. My reading of it is timely, too; my father’s birthday is coming up and he has spent 45 years as a chemistry professor breathing science; this might be just the thing he needs to spur him to meditation.”

Hot review from the Library Journal

Library Journal: July 16, 2009

Lind-Kyle, Patt. Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain: Applying the Exciting New Science of Brain Synchrony for Creativity, Peace and Presence. Energy Psychology. Oct. 2009. c.253p. illus. ISBN 978-1-60415-056-8. $26.95 with audio CD. PSYCH

A therapist, trainer, and longtime meditator, Lind-Kyle (When Sleeping Beauty Wakes Up) writes superbly about the relationship between meditation and the brain. Dividing her book into two sections, she begins with an in-depth scientific discussion of the anatomy of the brain, its evolution, and how our thought processes work. Using an electroencephalograph, Lind-Kyle has been able to measure and monitor mind states and identify when brain waves are out of balance. She presents brain research that shows how meditation can reshape the nature of the mind. In Part 2, readers will find detailed discussion of how using mind-training techniques can help them access the centers of the brain in order to bring about change in their mindset and thought patterns. With the use of a meditation CD, the author leads readers through several meditation techniques. VERDICT For those who just want to learn how to meditate, there are other books, e.g., Paul Wilson’s Finding the Quiet, that will satisfy. For those who also want to know why it works, this book is a great resource.—Phyllis Goodman, West Chester Lib., OH
