Whether it is a deep state of trance, a phenomenon of awe-ness, a psychedelic induced expansion, and/or a break through or breakdown of perception, therein lays a greater and “deeper” experience of change. From a neuroplastic or biological state there is the activation of the midbrain, such as the amygdale, cingulate gyrus, nucleus accumbens, which then alter the perceptions of the neocortex. This workshop will outline the theory and practical application of such transformations. Methods will be discussed and taught to recognize and stimulate midbrain functions.

developed the methods for utilizing the internal powers and resources that each individual has to greatly improve the quality of life. With time, it has become evident that Dr. Erickson’s brilliance was taping into the vast levels within the interactions of brain activity. This facilitated the congruency of harmony and resonance of frequency, all highly associated with the alignment of mind, body and spirit.

The PET scan, fMRI and Brainmapping all have demonstrated this process of deep change that goes beyond logic and language. Join us in the experiential transformation of the midbrain activity. For without it, we change our language but not our being.


Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe how the pathways to the midbrain are relevant for conscious expansion.
  2. Discuss the value of non-verbal therapies and how they enhance transformational change.
  3. Demonstrate the expansion of consciousness through strategic meditative mindfulness intervention.
