It is not explainable, what happened after I left. How I perceive the world, people, and the energy around me has changed in a very positive way. People around me could see the change and positive calmness. My ego is still quiet and the anxiety is much lower or not even there.

For me this is like the X-men headquarters. It feels amazing here - with a superhero team. 40 Years of Zen will help you download decades of mindful state training into mere days. The program has improved the fitness and fluency of my brain wave states for enhanced calmness, clarity, concentration and creativity. Thank you to the entire 40 Years Team for their talent, time and thoughtfulness.

Words can't express my gratitude for organizing such a transformative experience. I'm speechless by the results. I feel like I have my mind back. Not only back... on steroids. Wrote 40 pages of reflection. Mind blown. You've gotta believe I'll be sending anyone and everyone I can to benefit from this.

My last pod session my graph was very steady. A sense of peace and self awareness. My wife, children, friends and clients will be better because of 40 Years of Zen. Most important, I finally see myself. My self awareness will exceed every expectation I have ever had of myself. [During] my last pod session my graph was very steady. A sense of peace and self awareness.

By the time I had arrived at 40 Years of Zen™, my first child had undergone an open-heart surgery at four and a half months, my wife's mother died unexpectedly, and I had undergone my own open-heart surgery to replace my aortic valve that had been destroyed by a bacterial infection. Oh yeah, don't forget the stroke that the heart infection caused that alerted us I was sick to begin with. Suffice it to say, 2016 was very a hard year. When I came back from 40 Years of Zen™, the world was the same, but my perception of it was totally different. I didn't realize how much weight I was carrying around in resentment until I was free of it!

What an epic week to start a new year! The five days at 40 Years of Zen gave me heart-wrenching cries, exhilarating laughter, introspective insights, and I ended with vision and strategy for all the companies I'm involved with. I cannot be more grateful for the opportunity to look inward and outward and balance my alpha and theta waves while experiencing gamma brain wave length. The love and care from all the staff involved was evident from the moment I arrived until I left and beyond. Thanks to Dave Asprey and his brilliant biohacking team, I feel healthy in mind, body, and soul. 40 Years of Zen is one of the best brain spas and a requirement for high functioning people.

I hit on a pattern that was long held in my life, but that I had never quite put together and owned. When I saw the pattern for what it was, it almost came as a relief because I could finally see how to release it.

To spend five days upgrading my brain, my limbic system, my nervous system, learning how to control my brain waves, cleaning house emotionally, all the things that we do there. It's just been transformative, and I keep going because I haven't found the ceiling yet. I just keep getting amazing results. So, thank you.

40 Years of Zen was honestly life changing. I've never done any meditation, ever. I've done a lot of personal growth and always looked for the edge in business. I discovered I have a lot of invisible blocks and as I got into the training, they started disappearing. I know this is going to be the secret sauce to help me get to the next level in business.

(My favorite part of the experience was) the one on one attention. (After the training) it felt like the world was was a happier place. I know I will have less worry going forward. I felt like I tapped into some deep, self-awareness. Due to the programme, I'm full of creativity.

…instant improvement in sleep. A chance to have a shift in your consciousness and a new beginning.

What I got out of it was “freedom.” The thing that truly made this the most powerful personal growth experience I've ever had was the sense of liberation I felt at the end of it. I had cleaned myself of so many grudges I had held onto for years. I was able to let go of painful memories I had forgotten I even had. And I finally released the charges against people who I believed wronged me in my life. Nothing I've Studied In Meditation Comes Close To This. My Practice Has NEVER Evolved That Fast In Such A Short Amount Of Time. Bigger gains in faster time than any other form of meditation Today, I have never felt more at peace with myself.

(My favorite part of the experience was) how you flowed all the parts together into an integrated experience. The experience truly is life changing.

I had been struggling with a personal decision for the past 6 months. I am at a tipping point in my career and the worst case scenario process helped me make a decision and move forward.

(My favorite part of the experience was) alpha and theta training in the pod. (I experienced) Kundalini energy rising up my spine during theta and several “downloads” during theta. I can rely more on my intuition.

Don't think, just go. [But] only if you want to change yourself dramatically and fantastically. I gained freedom from painful stories. Unlocking new potential of skill around, writing reciting and learning. Expressing through motion and music. Ability to relax my body. It's only getting better from here.

I found that it really helped me process past events and the brainwave charts confirmed the fact. I'm grateful for the experience to have scientific proof of my vibrating at love or above.

I felt the training was truly AMAZING! The program helped me accomplish my goals. I feel so much more open, loving, compassionate, and free!

One thing is clear. I changed. I am more connected than ever, more able to share my light , while being present.... Thanks so much for you time, effort, love and happiness .... you guys are simply the best.

What I fundamentally experienced is mostly a sense of “integration” or perhaps “realization” an ability to be and behave as I had always been desiring to, which was previously blocked by the old neurological and behavioral patterns, which were “not me.” It gave me the freedom to behave as I actually wanted to but had been preventing myself from one way or another.

Feeling my brain change in real time was surreal. Watching it change quantifiably was even cooler.

The entire setting was great. Specially crafted food, expert staff and educators, all led to a feeling of trust, openness, relaxation, and support. I felt I was in good, loving, qualified hands. Hence, I could relax into it.

My favorite part was being surrounded by a knowledgeable and helpful team who walked me through each process every step of the way.

I loved how well we were taken care of; the commitment and quality of the team is exceptional.

40 Years of Zen surpassed my expectations. I arrived exhausted, disconnected to ”my why“, and with big life decisions in front of me. I left with clarity on my next steps, a sense of levity and deep peace and a more focused, enlivened brain. I know the insights and the journey I experienced will continue to shape my life in profound ways.

Really impressed with 40 Years of Zen. I came in without a lot of preconceptions, and really enjoyed the week. It twas tremendously difficult and rewarding.

I can say that the majority of the voice in the head has shut the hell up. Negative thoughts about “myself” just do not come up very often and if they do I can see it for its illusion and discard it without getting trapped in the thought.

I truly believe the forgiveness work was worth the full amount of the training plus more. Throughout the week we were treated with great care. Our chef, Gil, prepared fantastic meals for lunch and dinner and we were provided with every supplement we needed to maintain focus and energy throughout the day (including tons of collagen bars!). I am so thankful for the team at 40 years of Zen, they were stellar! Dr. Drew is also a remarkable man with many talents and I would not be surprised to see his name in history books one day. Overall I would highly recommend 40 Years of Zen. Since returning home I have noticed a few major changes in my behavior and habits. My meditation practice has deepened. I am less reactive and anxious, especially when I am driving in traffic. I have a new zest for life and find myself using affirmations and visualizations again. I am setting HUGE goals for 2017 and I feel motivated to accomplish them.

From the brain map, I discovered that at some point in my life, my right prefrontal cortex was injured severely enough to cause a head trauma that affected a number of areas in my brain. My life has been rewritten, and I am able to “forgive-into-gratitude” in the moment. I strongly recommend the 40 Years of Zen brain training program. I am enjoying tremendous improvement in my brain function. My memory has improved and I simply am able to think more rapidly and clearly. I can also tell a difference in how my meditation practice impacts my life. Issues get resolved quickly and easily, and all emotional investment drops away. I am able to make the move in to gratitude very rapidly

I loved how well we were taken care of; the commitment and quality of the team is exceptional.
