Holistic Brain Stuff

I've posted this link on the facebook site, so I thought I'd post it here too. Cortices
Cortices is a technique that encourages the brain to remove cold spots in the brain for better concentration. You can practice on yourself or on others. When I lead meditation classes I have my class tap their own heads and then pair up to try it on someone else. Some people physically feel an increase in heat on their heads, which ideally is what is supposed to happen. As with everything the sensation varies, but the quality of meditation that people experience after such a simple technique dramatically increases.
It's not mentioned in the video, but taking deep, belly breaths focusing on long exhalations while tapping enhances the effectiveness of the treatment.

It's Mind Alive's 30th birthday. Time for a make over!

My friends who've come to the Mind Alive website www.mindalive.com, have commented that it looks a bit scary. Understandable. There's a lot of stuff that people don't understand. Entrainment doesn't usually crop up in everyday conversation. One the projects I was hired to help with was redesigning the website. I met with some great people on Friday to help us with it. The biggest advantage of the company we went with  was they are a marketing company that uses the web. To showcase their marketing talent and provide me with some ideas they completely misunderstood the "research" tab on the existing site. They were like "Oh wow everything is made in house and you're showing the product development." My response, "No, but that is a great idea."
Hopefully, I can catch Dave in between trips as he's in New Orleans, presently to discuss putting together some slide shows and videos for the new site. I met with a friend who does videos and video editing. From the questions he asks he knows what he's doing and he keeps me honest with amount of work I need to do in terms of getting him the information he needs.
