The Quiet Mind
I named my business The Quiet Mind™ because I understood that when the brain is balanced and harmonized optimally, the natural default setting of our mind is restored and we typically experience this as quiet, peaceful and alert. Most of us this is a welcome relief. From this grounded, balanced presence we are flexibly adaptive to life.
Our whole organism: physiology, our psychology, our mood, our relationships, our intelligence is a reflection of the functioning of our nervous system. When the resilient flexibility of our nervous system is disrupted by trauma or chronic stress, our brains adapt and may adopt fixed patterns, which limit our responsiveness. These stuck patterns are imbalances and disharmonies which manifest as emotional and physical symptoms.
Brainwave Optimization® encourages our brain to relax out of these stuck patterns allowing us to access our innate intelligence and experience the felt-sense of our connections with ourselves, others, nature, and All-That-Is.
As our brain relaxes out of all of its stress and trauma induced patterns, the whole spectrum of symptoms of our former neurological "stuckness" begin to unravel, dissipate and disappear. Over the last 12 years of offering Brainwave Optimization, I have had the privilege and pleasure of helping people feel more at ease in their skin, become able to sleep better, eliminate repetitive, addictive patterns and get engaged and focused in their lives and in their relationships.
Our world is complex and there are a nearly infinite number of influences on our lives. Each of our choices has effects which either support us in fulfilling ourselves or they distract us from our deepest focus, competing with the benefits of our more harmonious and synergistic choices (think nutrition, exercise, nature, relationship, community, meditation, etc.). As our brains relax, our minds become calm and clear; making wiser choices naturally becomes easier.
I came to this work from years of working with people. I have studied and trained in psychotherapy and helping people clear trauma from their nervous system and psyche. My understanding and work is also informed by my life-long spiritual practice; I am deeply interested in awakening both for myself and for all of us.
What I mean by the word ‘awakening’ involves recognizing our natural state and then both releasing our attention into this open, clear presence and releasing our attention out of our habitual, conditioned narrating description of ourselves, our world, and each other. Once we’ve begun to know ourselves as we always have been, we naturally know who each and every one of us is essentially; we all come from the same Source. The truth is we’ve just overlooked our natural state and we can begin to notice it very simply.
Even if you choose not to come to The Quiet Mind to optimize your brain, you can choose to stop thinking for a moment and attend to your experience. When we stop thinking for a moment, it is noticeably obvious that we are here as an alert and knowing presence. What we can notice when we stop thinking for a moment is a fundamental, ground of openness which is paradoxically a still, empty space which is simply aware of everything appearing within itself.
Typically, initially, this glimpse only lasts the briefest of moments. However, as we choose again and again in the midst of our life to take a moment for ourselves and stop the endless commentary and imagined conversations. then we just notice and experientially explore what is already, naturally here.
