Video: Following the Brain into Meditation

In Segment 5 of Patt Lind-Kyle’s interview with Dr. Emmett Miller of Healing Times Radio, Patt talks about:

  • What is the brainwave frequency called beta, what is its frequency, what does it do to the mind and what kind of behavior does one have while in beta?
  • How does one reduce fast brain waves to calm the system and move into the brainwave frequency for strategic thinking (at 15 Hz within the beta range)?
  • What happens around 12 Hz with our attention and ability to focus/concentrate?

In the book Heal the Mind, Rewire the Brain, Patt looks at these 3 areas and suggests exercises to manage these brainwave states:

1) Learning to relax the entire body in order to get to know the body and reduce pain
2) Using the CD’s to help learn this process

Dr. Miller asks: How do people know if they are in the meditative state? Patt answers:

  • Meditation is deeper than relaxation
  • Once the body is very quiet and relaxed, then you can notice your breath and sense the rhythm to the breath
  • Then you notice body sensations, visual sensations, thoughts, sounds
  • Then you are in the next level: alpha (an aware state) and you look to see “who’s aware?” by noticing the observer – moving to the bridge from conscious state to meditation state/sub-conscious state
  • This awareness becomes habituated for most people so it is important to learn these techniques

Video: Applying the 4 Tools: Attention, Intention, Receptivity, Awareness

In Segment 6 of Patt’s interview with Dr. Emmett Miller, MD on Healing Times Radio, Patt talks about applying the 4 tools of attention, intention, receptivity and awareness.  When your mind is more trained, we learn to “face it, embrace it, it erase” and the mind becomes quieter.

Video: “You are not separate”

Patt Lind-Kyle describes her experience of the Theta brainwave state during Segment 7 of her interview with Emmett Miller, MD on Healing Times Radio. In this video, Patt describes the experience of oneness and a knowing that we are not separate from each other while experiencing the Theta brainwave state.

Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain: Harnessing the Power of Neuroplasticity

It will be a highly experiential four-day workshop where you will be empowered to learn to manage stress and break the mental patterns that keep you trapped in habitual and unproductive attitudes, thoughts, and behaviors.

New research shows that the brain is amazingly adaptable, constantly rewiring itself in response to events. By learning to consciously access each of the four brainwave frequencies, you can free yourself from the self-destructive patterns that keep you from leading a successful and creative life.

In this workshop, Patt Lind-Kyle will guide you through exercises that will enable you to work in a constant state of flow.

You will learn:

  • How the brain becomes stuck in negative feedback loops and how it can change and evolve
  • To identify sources of stress and unhappiness
  • Meditation and mindfulness techniques that rewire the brain by focusing on and strengthening each of the four brainwaves.

You will return home with the tools you need to literally reprogram your neural networks for a life that is more peaceful, innovative, and positive.

Recommended reading: Patt Lind-Kyle, Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain (Energy Psychology Press) and practice with the companion CDs.

Video: Finding Home Base (from the 2010 ISNR Conference)

In this video from her presentation at the 2010 International Society for Neurofeedback and Research Conference, Patt tells the story of how she got started with meditation and how she became inspired to share her experience of “finding home base” with her family, friends, clients and readers.

After Patt’s first 6-month meditation retreat, she asked herself “If I can experience this incredible, incredible state of happiness, and it can ride through me all the time – I don’t need to find it out there, it’s here, there’s no doubt it comes from here – how can I teach this to other people?”

She also talks about The Brain Mirror as an important feedback tool that she used to observe her own neuronal patterns during states of happiness and anxiety.
