Topic: Enlightenment & The State of Flow Free “Enlightenment & The State of Flow” meditation CD will be given to participants who RSVP to Info@NuminousOnline.com
It is an indomitable truth that as life continues, we experience more and more inevitable losses. No one gets out of this life unscathed. How does one remain buoyant, happy and engaged in life when it offers us so many opportunities to be otherwise?
There is a way of being in this world that enables us to proceed through devastating loss and still thrive. We see clues to this way of life in the three religious traditions that discuss meditation as a means to obtain enlightenment. Although these traditions don’t agree on what it means to be enlightened, they do agree that enlightenment means the end of suffering. Many people believe that enlightenment is impossible to reach, similar to the mythical place of Shangri-La. However, current neuroscience is documenting that enlightenment is simply a trained nervous system, and through skilled meditation training, it can be reached.
In this Seeking Source Saturday, we will discuss meditation skills needed for self-regulation required to obtain the state of “flow” outlined by positive psychologist, Dr. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Ph.D. Flow could actually be thought of as “enlightenment-light”. We will discuss the characteristics of a flow state, and how to train the mind to attend to our daily lives in a manner that facilitates this state. The state of flow has many aspects of the enlightened state, which would have us be more aware of the movement and people around us and be more attuned to responding to it’s subtle nuances. An enlightened mind is not self-involved, and does not project the past on to the future. The result is that it remains enraptured in the ever unfolding present.
To help prime the mind to experience these sublime states, we are blessed to have positive music award winner, singer/song writer Mark Shepard, perform and lead us in song in with his transformative music.

In this Zoom Power Point presentation, I discuss how EEG biofeedback dramatically enhances meditation practice.
It is hard to explain the power of this work, because it is unlike traditional meditation methods.
Essentially during the EEG Mind Mirror weekend that we offer, we strive to tune our brainwaves to feel well-being similar to the way we tune an instrument to play beautiful music. If an instrument is not tuned properly, it does not produce pleasant music. If our brainwaves are not “tuned” properly, we feel stressed, separate, and anxious.
When we obtain objective data about our brainwaves, we learn how to strategically tune ourselves to play the highest and best music within us. We learn to clear the blocks that kept us from accessing the beauty of our essential being. Perhaps, one of our recent participants stated it best:
I want to THANK YOU for the incredible seminar last weekend. It was very meaningful for me, I am grateful to have attended. I continue to receive further insights. And one especially prickly memory from childhood has been remembered more clearly, and forgiven.
Best wishes to you, Andrew, and your team as you continue this new chapter of brainwave study. I look forward to whatever is next.
Love and Appreciation,
I will be writing more about how this work works, because it is a little more complex than traditional meditations, such as focusing on the breath repetitively. Mind Mirror EEG meditations are called “working meditations” because we ask people to engage more of themselves than traditional meditation methods. However the end goals are the same, maintaining a tranquil smooth mind while cultivating a “homing instinct” for love, wholeness and well-being. In summary, we get addicted to feeling good!
We will be sharing more of the gritty details over time, and inviting you to participate in future weekend workshops.
Thank you for walking on this journey with us. We greatly appreciate your interest and participation.
We simply can’t do this research without people just like you opening your heart to send intentions to strangers. I believe that sending intentions is one of the most sacred actions we perform. Sending peaceful intentions requires us to remove ourselves out of the center of our attention and place someone else there. We are deeply grateful for the graciousness of your open heart to be involved with the Resonant Peaceful Cities Project.
On behalf of the people of Twin Cities and beyond, Thank you for opening your heart to this work.
