An awakened mind state allows for a peaceful, loving death.
Patt’s current focus is on the awakening process to rewire our approach to death. Patt was trained as a hospice volunteer and served patients in the Hospice Hospital of Portland, OR and Hospice of the Foothills in CA. Patt confronted the deep fear of her own death in a long meditation retreat. This experience launched a study of the dying process in preparation for her own death that turned into a book for all of us. Through her research and by developing personal exploratory practices about death, Patt has defined the step by step process of dying including legal, caregiving and awakening processes. In her newest book and accompanying videos “Embracing the End of Life: A Journey into Dying & Awakening,” she guides us through practices for rewiring the brain and meditation to awaken the mind to its true self in life before death.
Shifting from Ordinary Consciousness to Spiritual Consciousness — Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain
Patt has been exploring the exciting new brain/mind research and working with the new tools of neuro-monitoring to help individuals become more effective with their brain/mind potential for many of years. 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. Her seminal book, Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain, 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. She completed an 18-month research project learning how individuals shift their mental, emotional and spiritual view of themselves and the world to function in a larger, more comprehensive view of reality.
The passion for understanding the relationship between the brain and the mind has come from 35 years of personal exploration through extensive meditation practice. She has studied with a variety of teachers in the Theravada tradition doing as many as twenty or more silent ten day to two week retreats, several month long retreats, two three month retreats and a six month long silent self-retreat. She teaches workshops and classes using the model of brain/mind exploration and works with individuals customizing the unique way an individual can find their own path of inner exploration.
Patt works with her husband, David, in executive development work in Fortune 50 and 500 companies. Her consulting focus includes executive coaching, Brain-Mind development for high performance, stress management, emotional regulation, optimal health and how women can lead and manage more effectively.
As a professor of Community Health and Dental Hygiene, Patt taught for 15 years at the University of Hawaii, Foothill College, San Jose State University, and University of California at San Francisco. Her academic preparation has been a BS at the University of Southern California in Biology and an MA at the California Institute of Integral Studies in East/West Psychology. Her thesis focused on the emerging right/left brain research and from this developed a program to teach community health techniques to indigenous people in Guatemala.
Patt Lind-Kyle, author
Patt’s early interest was in the research of inner development and optimal performance. One such focus was an in-depth research program with woman leaders. She interviewed over 40 woman leaders on the West Coast to find what happens to women working in a man’s environment. She focused her study on how the male work place has affected women leaders feminine qualities, their health, their professional outlook and their concerns as spouses and companions. Her book that describes this work and her own story as a professional woman is entitled, When Sleeping Beauty Wakes Up: A Woman’s Tale of Healing the Immune System and Awakening the Feminine (Swan/Raven & Co., 1992). Patt is also a contributor in an anthology, Audacious Aging with her chapter entitled “Building Community from the Inside Out” (Elite Books, 2009). Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain: Applying the Exciting New Science of Brain Synchrony for Creativity, Peace and Presence (Energy Psychology Press, 2009) 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.
