1. Psi and Psychic Awareness Psychic awareness was of keen interest to Mind Mirror inventor Max Cade, an unbiased scientist who served as secretary of the British Society of Psychical Research. Remote viewing science refers to psychic awareness as "anomalous perception," but for Max it was just plain "listening to the soul."
This fascinating program features neurofeedback researcher, Dr. Don Wilde , and three Mind Mirror owners including social worker and Spiritualist reader Garth Fisher and two mediums, teacher Suzanne Tempel and counselor Jessica Blanding. They talk about their mystical awakening to unseen worlds and how they use their intuitive abilities to serve this one. Learn how the coherent brainwaves of meditation heighten intuitive awareness and attune us to the superordinary sixth sense of the psychic.
Program duration: 1 hr 40 min
2. The Mind Mirror Pattern Editor Watch Vilistus software engineer Steve Clark demonstrating the new Mind Mirror Pattern Editor, the most exciting and versatile addition to the software since the statistical Training Summary. This easy-to-use neurofeedback approach to brainwave training puts your pattern in your own hands. The Pattern Editor also features neurofeedback's auto thresholding, providing a two-minute assessment of brainwave production then gradually challenging the brain to meet the pattern goal. A second new software innovation, Vilistus FadeBack, integrates your own music, video, and games into the self-training program as rewards for eyes open and eyes closed meditation and peak performance practice. Gary Groesbeck and Judith Pennington, who brainstormed the Pattern Editor with Steve Clark, will discuss potential ways to use this remarkable instrument to fine-tune your patterns, boost your brainpower, and fast-track your expansion of consciousness.
Program duration: 1 hr 22 min
3. Case Studies - Folio 4: Healing Brain Injury In this webinar Certified Awakened Mind Practitioner, Suzanne Tempel tells about how she uses the Mind Mirror to help people with brain injuries: "All of my brain-damaged clients have reported improvements after working with the Mind Mirror, some of them quite remarkable improvements and sometimes without showing any pattern change in the Mind Mirror. The brain has this natural ability to adapt and find new neurological pathways if some of them are cut off. I have found that the Mind Mirror can play a role in the recovery of these clients. In this case study I will tell their stories"
Program duration: 1 hr 18 min
4. Explorations of Consciousness with The Monroe Institute IAM's historic studies with The Monroe Institute provide us with pioneering data on changes of consciousness in large, simultaneously monitored groups of people within a controlled environment. Tune in to this program to see the remarkable effects of Hemi-Sync binaural beats and SAM (gamma) audio technology on brain balancing, refinement of the Awakened Mind, Evolved Mind, and Gamma Synchrony patterns, and the extension of those patterns all the way up to 100Hz. Sound technology expert Robert Holbrook will explain his delivery of gamma beats through his innovative Spatial Angle Modulation (SAM) technology; TMI's use of brainwave entrainment to conduct people into higher levels of awareness; and his own work with SAM and military veterans with PTSD. Judith Pennington will present Mind Mirror findings in a Power Point show on TMI's June 2017 "Journey to Happiness" program. See how we used the Mind Mirror's data analysis tools to reach our conclusions and how you can use them to track changes in your own states of consciousness.
Program duration: 2 hrs 30 min
5. Energy Healing in Higher States of Consciousness Mind Mirror studies have shown since Max Cade's time that healing occurs within our well-known Awakened Mind and Evolved Mind brainwave patterns. But nowadays, we also see the involvement of gamma frequencies. How does healing occur, and what do gamma waves have to do with it? Judith Pennington addresses these questions in a preview of a Power Point show she prepared for the Energy Psychology Conference being held in Paris May 26-27. These narrated visuals explain her theories on how healing works and trace 15 years of her Mind Mirror research with hands-on healers and self-healers. She shares their stories, methods, and Mind Mirror patterns. This journey into the heart of healing includes not only the brainwave patterns of hands-on energy healers and recipients, but also people who have healed themselves via HemiSync and SAM audio technology at The Monroe Institute. You will also see the brainwave patterns of self-healers attending Dr. Dawson Church's "tapping" seminars in Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) at the Omega Institute and the Open Center in New York. Tune in to be inspired and encouraged about your brain's ability to access higher levels of awareness to heal self and others.
Program duration: 1 hr 57 min
6. Dreams, Embodied Imagination, and the Creative Mind This webinar focuses on the relationships between dreams and creativity. In a Power Point show, Richard Szuster, M.D., a psychiatrist and Mind Mirror owner based in Hawaii, looks at historical examples of dream creativity and reflects on the neurophysiology of waking, dreaming and the creative process. Next he takes the viewer through an unprecedented case series study he conducted on the Mind Mirror 6 using Embodied Imagination (EI). Developed by the Jungian psychoanalyst Robert Bosnak, EI is a novel method of working with dreams in a hybrid state of waking awareness which involves direct engagement with dream images (not to be confused with lucid dreaming, which occurs in sleep). This fascinating program is the first empirical evaluation of the neurophysiology of EI along with its impact on the creative process. See how Dr. Szuster used the Mind Mirror and its statistical analytics to map EI's success in helping his subjects clear blocks to their creative endeavors—and, along the way, further awaken their awareness.

7. Practice of Silence by The System of Health Management
This webinar was a logical continuation of our conversation on stress and meditation. We discussed the Practice of Silence as taught by The System of Health Management, developed by the Russian scientist and doctor, Dmitry Shamenkov. This is one of the key practices within this scientifically based system, teaching about the basic principles of life (laws of nature or God's laws) derived from physiology of living systems and complemented with modern studies of neuro-, bio- and socio- sciences as well as physics and information technologies. Knowing these principles will provide you with a set of keys not only for a successful meditative practice of silence but also to a healthy, productive and self-actualizing life for yourself, your close ones and your clients.

In addition, Robin has had great success in training a group of four clients on a weekly basis. She discusses this innovative therapeutic approach to group brainwave trainings.
Peak experiences of bliss, unity, and transcendence are widely reported these days, and there's a growing body of research on the brainwaves and brain networks of illuminated states of consciousness. We introduce peak experiences, spontaneous illuminations, enlightenment and neurotheology, which tries to bring light on how our brain actually interacts with the divine. We also show how these states of awareness look like in brain imaging studies and on the Mind Mirror. In the end we do "The Expansion and Contraction of Consciousness Meditation" by Anna Wise.
Gary Groesbeck and Donna Bach, two of our most experienced and knowledgeable Awakened Mind practitioners, certified by Anna Wise in 2003, talk about how EFT can help you with the Mind Mirror work. Whenever you feel desintegrated physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually, tapping techniques can help you or other people to resolve the issue or at least provide the releif by reducing its intensity. This can be done directly or by surrogating and include little childaren, animals anjd even inanimate objects (like equipment, cars and computers). Watch the program to learn the simplest way to use this technique for Awakened Mind Training as well as general health issues.
Watch to meet John Wise (son of Anna Wise), Jim MacRitchie (former partner of Anna Wise and John's father), Neil Hancock (nephew of Mind Mirror co-inventor Geoff Blundell, creator of the Mind Mirror III and mindmirroreeg.com), Elizabeth St. John (healer who worked closely with Max Cade and Anna Wise, also Anna's friend and sister-in-law), Peter Staples (student of Max and Isabel Cade, became Isabel's life-partner after Max died). This program will take you back in time, to 70s, 80s, 90s last century, the atmosphere of London and mechanistical views on the body, the pioneer history of the biofeedback when Max and Anna started their work. What experiments Max did during his classes to develop awareness in any conscious or trans states; how Max and Jeff calibrated their early equipment on Tibetans; how Elizabeth and Anna did their classes afterwords, reseach done with dowsers, healers, etc.. Watch this program to reconnect with those big people and understand where they were coming from. Connecting to the roots of this work is truely inspiring - don't miss it!

In this highly practical program for Mind Mirror self-trainers and practitioners, transpersonal psychologist and certified Awakened Mind Consciousness Trainer Oxana Bondarchuk presents new and highly useful brainwave-training tips, tools, and techniques for the benefit of practitioners and self-trainers. Oxana explains and shows during this interactive webinar how she helped a client balance her brainwaves and dramatically improve her life. She began each session by "warming up" the client's brain with relaxation and brain-balancing exercises including Brain Gym, body-consciousness, kinesiology, and NLP exercises, all gathered together in a fun and fascinating Power Point show to be shared in this program.
13. Case Studies - Folio 3.2: Landmarks and Statistical Measurements
This webinar, a continuation of Oxana's "Case Studies: Folio 3," presented earlier in July, presents a new approach to the use of landmarks, and deep-state Awakened Mind meditations, particularly The Inner Child, to help the client resolve psycho-spiritual issues that led to important and lasting changes in her mind and life. Oxana also shows how to keep excellent statistical reports in Excel and Word. Tracking landmarks and statistical measurements—the twin powerhouses of Awakened Mind training—is of great benefit to meditators and consciousness trainers seeking the best cognitive paths to personal growth and brainwave mastery.
This program is highly recommended to those interested in technology, physiology, ancient traditions, consciousness, and the applications of the Mind Mirror, covering, among other things, where it started and how it was calibrated on Tibetans, the importance of seeing instant changes compared to clinical equipment, the physiology (why we have these electrode positions and measurements), and research with future possibilities of the Mind Mirror. The program is brilliantly presented by Neil Hancock, an electronics engineer, the nephew of Mind Mirror co-inventor Geoff Blundell, the creator of the first digital model of the Mind Mirror (III), who consulted with Vilistus software engineer Steve Clark on the Vilistus Mind Mirror 6. Being a truly technical person, he does his best to make the technicalities accessible for beginners, and he will share his memories of the early days of the Mind Mirror, Max Cade and Geoff Blundell.
