The Science

Meditation

Scientific studies, including those with our protocol, have shown meditation to have many mental, emotional and physical benefits:

  • Better Focus
  • Less Stress
  • Better Sleep
  • Less Worry
  • Better Health
  • Less Inner Criticism
  • Better Problem Solving
  • Less Anxiety

Plus:

  • More Now, less Past/Future
  • More Flow
  • More Connectedness, Compassion and Love
  • More Freedom (Life is okay, no matter the circumstance you're equipped to tackle it)

EEG

Brain cells produce tiny electrical signals that can be picked up and measured by an EEG device. These brainwaves are typically divided up into five bands:

  • Delta waves which are most present during deep sleep.
  • Theta waves which are associated with drowsiness, light sleep, visualization, and creativity.
  • Alpha waves which occur during wakeful relaxation.
  • Beta waves which occur when alert, actively thinking or problem-solving.
  • Gamma waves which occur when involved in higher mental activity and consolidation of information.

HRV

The speed of your heart varies with every beat. Your electrocardiogram (ECG) is the electric signal originating from heart. The most distinct feature of the ECG is the QRS complex, which consists of the Q, R and S waves that originate from the electrical activation of your heart ventricles.

Heart rate variability (HRV) is the variation of beat to beat intervals, also known as R-R intervals. HRV is regulated by the autonomic nervous system. Parasympathetic activity decreases heart rate and increases HRV, whereas sympathetic activity increases heart rate and decreases HRV.

In recent years, HRV has been implicated in everything from health and longevity to mental resilience. It reveals a great deal about the mind-body link and condition.

GSR

Galvanic skin response (GSR), also known as electrodermal response (EDR) or skin conductance (SC), is a method for measuring the skin's electrical conductance. Conductance is measured in ┬ÁSiemens (┬ÁS) and is the inverse of electrical resistance.

The resistance measured is controlled by your sympathetic nervous system, the same system responsible for your "Fight or Flight" response. GSR reacts rapidly to even the smallest emotional, physical or mental changes. At the simplest level, a rise in skin conductance is clearly visible under the influence of stress, while the opposite is true for relaxation.
