GENERAL QUESTIONS

Are you someone committed to getting the best out of your life and being the best version of yourself? Are you looking to make a tremendous impact in the lives others around you? Are you ready to let go of the stories and patterns in your life that no longer serve you? Are you curious, open-minded, and looking to take your life to the next level?

If you answered yes to one or more of the questions check out our application. We look forward to hearing from you.

You’ll be able to see the progress of your results as you go throughout the training.

Ultimately our program isn’t for everyone, so it’s essential that we screen all applicants to make sure we’re a good fit.

FINANCES

$15,000 per person for five days.

Currently we do not offer payment plans. Payment must be paid in full before you may attend the training; We require a $2500 minimum deposit to secure your seat. After that you may pay however you see fit as long as full payment is received by the date of the training.

By the start date of your training.

Currently we do not have a scholarship program. However many clients have been able to get the cost of the training partially or fully reimbursed by their employer.

The training fee covers your 5 Day training including daily supplements, snacks, De-Caf Bulletproof Coffee, and lunch and dinner provided by your private chef. It does not include travel, transportation, or living arrangements.

HOW WILL THIS HELP ME?

Neurofeedback has been demonstrated to improve intelligence; while we can never guarantee any specific results, we have seen an increase as high as 15 IQ points.

Neurologically, we’re quieting down areas associated with the “ego” (as in, the sense of self as separate from the environment) and allowing more flexibility and fluidity in that. Behaviorally, we’re investigating and loosening ties to the imprints that formerly had major impacts on your behavior and outlook on life.

So in short, yes it can. Increasing positive personality traits and decreasing undesired qualities.

Meditation is great, however the challenge is you don’t know if you’re doing it right. Neurofeedback is like having a detector strapped to your head that is constantly letting you know when you’re successfully meditating and when you are not.

Neurofeedback also allows you to target specific regions and frequencies, which would be impossible to do without this technology.

No. A large portion of our client base has never meditated before.

Actually the opposite is true. In several studies it’s been demonstrated that happy people are more successful. Specifically, happy people on average have 31% higher productivity than their less happy peers, their sales are 37% higher, and their creativity is three times as high.

While every client’s results differ as no two people or experiences are the same, we typically see a full standard deviation reduction in measures from the areas targeted in the brain maps. This means better control, greater efficiency, less energy expenditure and more calibrated connectivity.

NEUROFEEDBACK

  • We attach a 24 channel eeg to your head, which detects your various brainwave patterns. When your brain produces the desired brainwaves, you get rewarded with a sound. Your brain learns very quickly to create more and more of this desired outcome both in frequency and intensity. Through neurofeedback we are able to retrain the brain to then create more powerful brainwaves typically experienced after years of meditation in just a few hours.
  • By retraining the brain we can allow it to run more effectively, efficiently and coherently. Instead of fighting with yourself, it’ll be firing on all cylinders instead of with one foot on the gas and one on the brakes.

In the pods you’re training specific brainwave patterns and allowing yourself to enter deeper hard to reach states of consciousness. While in these states our clients apply specific techniques to find places where they are inefficiently responding to old events in their life and remove this unconscious programming from their nervous system. This results in freeing up a tremendous amount of metabolic energy that was previously being wasted.

With “the cap” you’re your training the networks and hubs in the subcortical areas of your brain. Simultaneously this work enhances your brains connectivity and processing speeds, thereby increasing overall functionality.

There is an initial focus on Alpha with some work in Gamma and/or Theta depending on the needs of the Client.

If you’re curious you’re always encouraged to ask our team of neuroscientists. However, we ask that you ultimately trust their expertise.

Yes, all clients receive copies of their brain maps and neurofeedback sessions at the end of the program.

We do have several recommendations and suggestions that we send to clients upon receiving their deposit.

The Friday of your training at 7:00 pm. Yes. However we recommend you don’t fly home the night of your training so that you give your brain time to recover and integrate the experience.

We recommend all clients turn off their cell phones during the training. If there is an emergency situation, we can always accommodate to your needs.

The training is 5 days, Monday-Friday, 9:00 am-7:00 pm. Ultimately it’s up to you if you work however the training is very intense so we encourage you to use all of your time outside of the training to relax and recover.

There is some free time during your lunch break, however we’ve scheduled your training for you to get the most out of your time at the facility.

Rest, journal, reflect, and sleep. Each day at 40 Years of Zen is like running a marathon for your brain. You’re going to need plenty of time to relax and recover.

We take a maximum of 6 people per training.  When we have 6 clients in a week they are split into groups of 3.

We have trainings 3 weeks out of each month with one week reserved as research week for our team to continue to grow and innovate the company.

Other than taking the time to relax and recover, 40 Years of Zen is a homework free experience.

AFTER THE TRAINING

No. When you’ve completed the training our team will make some recommendations if you want to go deeper, but your results will be significant regardless.

No. You will receive permanent lasting results from one session. Many of our clients do decide to come back, because they want to go further but it is by no means necessary.

Absolutely! Many of our clients do come back for a second session and beyond. The basic structure is the same however the approach is more customized to the clients desires. Your may spend longer time in the pods or doing Cap training now that your brain has developed a greater capacity for the work.

Yes. To support you through this process and help you lock in the benefits of the coaching we include regular access to our online webinars with our team of neuroscientists, doctors, and Dave Asprey.
