Javi:         Welcome, everybody! Joseph Kao is here with us today to talk about Profound Renewal. I’m really happy to be doing this interview, because I was also lucky enough to interview Joseph when he released his previous product, Profound Releasing.

John:  I have a very special guest today: Nadja Lind from Berlin, Germany, creator of Workout Ecstasy, iAwake’s latest product. I’ve known Nadja for a long time. I visited her in Berlin three times, maybe more, and always had a great time. Whenever we get together, it centers around meditation and working out. In other…

Well, I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you. (Laughs) How do you know if you’re enlightened…? Well, first of all, you have to come up with a definition of what that means—to be enlightened. It’s a great question, by the way, and I think it’s a question that we all have…

Coherence is a peak state, characterized by the harmonious functioning of our mental, emotional, and physical systems. When measured, it tends to show balanced biomarkers, especially those related to heart rhythms, as suggested by the fascinating work being done at HeartMath Institute. When experienced, coherence often feels like an effortless-and-filled-with-joy-can-do attitude, during which we might…

I like to think about meditation as the art of being present. Being present is something that is quite difficult sometimes, mainly because the mind tends to wander and take us on unexpected trips to either the future or the past. It is often busy producing thoughts that might create anxiety in us, or fear,…

I’d like to talk about the meaning of life and tell you what that is from my perspective. First of all, I think we have to wake up. We have to remember; we have to know who and what we really are and wake up to our true identities, because before that we’re just wandering…

I’ve been doing a brainwave entrainment meditation practice on a daily basis for eight years now. It’s hard for me to imagine living life without a contemplative practice at this point, and hard to imagine living without the benefits that I’ve gotten from this ongoing commitment to my inner work and inner growth. This technology…

I was meditating the other day and thinking about the four noble truths of Buddhism: 1) Life is suffering. 2) We suffer because we’re attached. 3) The cessation of suffering is attainable. 4) The way out of the suffering, the path, includes practice. I went over this in my heart, in my mind, in my experience,…

While I was meditating today, I was thinking about all the breakthroughs people are having doing this practice of using brain entrainment and biofield technology while meditating. If you could sit where I sit, hear, and read all of the testimonials from people that are using the iAwake technology—from our beta testers, from the students…

Vision questing is a very personal topic for me; I have vision quested for years and also developed wilderness therapy programs that put hundreds of people out on vision quests. I’m talking about the traditional type of vision quest here, in which the individual goes into the wilderness and finds a spot. When we were helping…

Recently, my wife Pam and I were at a conference focused on where contemplative wisdom and technology intersect. It was a very interesting, extraordinary experience. One of the remarkable things that went on was hearing from a number of MIT-, Harvard-, and Brown University-trained neuroscientists talk about meditation and neuroscience. As I listened, it became…

I picked up a book the other day by Rollo May called The Courage to Create, published in 1975. Rollo May was an existential psychologist, and I think he was quite influential in some of Ken Wilber’s early stuff. His half-brother, Gerald May, wrote a classic in the recovery field, calledAddiction & Grace. Anyway, The Courage to…

On the 4th of July this year, I was thinking about patriotism. We were considering having a 4th of July sale on iAwake Technologies’ products and the slogan, “Be a good patriot this July 4th. Develop your brain.” came to mind. I liked it―a bit humorous, but pretty serious at the same time. What is…

I want to talk about non-duality and enlightenment and open up that whole can of worms, because there’s just a lot of talk about it these days. We put ourselves through all kinds of crazy things in order to achieve it: we join ashrams, follow spiritual teachers, spend lots of money, and really do all…

My History With Brainwave Meditation Programs by Eric Thompson I first became aware of brainwave meditation programs  and brain waves when researching alternative methods for treating the bipolar disorder I had been unsuccessfully living with my entire adult life. I eventually learned a method of releasing difficult emotions on the spot, which I then practiced…
