Optimizing your experience

You’re joining an elite mind-set that taps into unique brain training technology, guidance and coaching that isn’t found anywhere else in the world. As you begin planning your transformation, there are some basic details for you to keep in mind. 40 Years of Zen Neurofeedback is intensive. We have up to 5,700 training variables to choose from to fully optimize your personally tailored training (compared to the 20-30 in old neurofeedback programs). If old neurofeedback is like running 1 marathon, 40 Years of Zen Neurofeedback is like running 5 marathons back-to-back, but in less time. We have carefully crafted the right tools, environment and guidance to provide you with full support that allows your brain to work on overdrive. Regardless of the support, working this hard is mentally and physically exhausting.

To get the most out of the training, your rest, diet and environment are vital. Here are some details to help you plan your trip to our facility:

  1. Flights: The program runs from Monday through Friday, approximately 8:30am-6pm each day. We suggest you fly into Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (airport code: SEA) on Sunday evening and fly out on Saturday morning. By not rushing in early Monday morning and out last thing on Friday, you’ll maximize the impact that the program has on your goals.
  2. Transportation: You can either rent a car, take Uber or Lyft. It’s about a 20 minute drive from the airport to the facility. Some people find that driving immediately after the training will knock them out of the zone, while others like having their own car so they can stop at Soos trail (a nice path about 5 minutes away from the 40 Years of Zen Neurofeedback Training Center) and go for a walk in nature. If you choose the uber/Lyft option, we are happy to help coordinate that for you.  We’ll call you the week prior to your training to confirm the start and end times of the daily schedule.
  3. Where to stay: Quality rest is very, very important for your brain to have time to rebuild its neural network as you go through the training. You want a nice, quiet, comfortable hotel where you can go to eat, sleep, and can be in-tune with your environment. Our training facility is strategically located just outside of the hustle and bustle of the city, about a 20 minute cab/uber ride away from the airport. That provides many hotel options around the airport. We suggest one on the fringes and ideally not a big business chain brand. Our favorite, and one that gets rave reviews, is Cedarbrook Lodge. It’s quiet, has wonderful soft beds, walking paths through peaceful gardens, and a high quality restaurant. When you’re booking either at their website or via phone at 1-877-515-2176 use the corporate code “ZEN” to get a discount.
    If you elect to stay at a Marriott or other big chain, be sure to ask for a room away from elevators and not facing noisy highways.
  4. Outside of Neurofeedback: Plan on NOT working the morning before, during or the evening after the training Monday-Friday. It will knock you out of the zone! Plus, your brain will be tired and you won’t be at your best for your day-to-day job type of work.
  5. What to eat: Diet is really, really important. Your brain requires a major amount of nutrition on any given day. During neurofeedback, it’s even more vital. Healthy fats are the best way to go. Avoid carbs like bread. Load up on healthy fats, veggies and grass fed protein. For tips on what’s good vs not, check out the Bulletproof® Diet Road Map and stay in the green section. If you’re not already on this kind of diet, start on it in the weeks before your training. You don’t need to be perfect, just move in the right direction.
  6. Training Center Address: You’ll be doing the daily training at the 40 Years of Zen Training Center located at 23007 156th Ave. SE, Kent, WA 98042. Google maps will direct you from your hotel to the training center without any issues. Apple maps sometimes gets lost, so be sure to have a quick look at google maps and print out turn by turn directions before you leave.

In the 2 weeks prior to your program, we’ll send you more details on each day of the program, as well as some “homework” for you to complete and bring with you.
