Shawn Phillips and Eric Thompson Discuss the Neuroscience of Peak Performance, Focused Concentration, and Mind-Body Mastery
Get ready to be blown away by the science behind the product. Check out this conversation between Shawn Phillips and Eric Thompson, creator of the Profound Meditation Program and NeuroStrength™. We think you will find this conversation not only informative but enlightening and inspiring, giving you a much deeper understanding of the technology and the transformational ignition that is now available through advanced brainwave entrainment.
Eric: There’s a Canadian trainer by the name of Thomas Hawes who has developed a concept he calls zone minutes; he has found among the athletes he has worked with, that the more minutes they accrue of being in the zone—of being in that place where they’re totally relaxed and totally connected to everything that’s happening around them, but totally free of all tension, all resistance—the more time they spend in this state, the more they are able to respond instantly, precisely, and effortlessly.
A further effect of accruing zone minutes is that the more athletes accrue these minutes over time, the more they build up to a critical mass where all of a sudden, when they’re in a competition, they’ll just start doing things they never dreamed they could do; it just comes out of nowhere… because they’ve been building up these zone minutes. Hawes is a trainer who happens to use brainwave entrainment with his athletes, and he has found that using brainwave entrainment with them, in his estimation, results in the accrual of a lot more zone minutes than otherwise.
Shawn: When I think about zone minutes and start envisioning that state, what comes up for me is how so much of the time people are thinking, “What do I need to think; what do I need to do?” In the zone there is the absence of thoughts, not the presence of thoughts. So often people think of focus as this squint-contracted-brow sort of thing, but actually focus is less the presence of something on your mind than the absence of everything else.
Eric: Exactly. There is a neurofeedback pioneer, also in Canada, Dr. Lester Fehmi, who has written a book about this whole thing, called The Open-Focus Brain. It describes just what we are talking about, how in our society, for whatever reasons, we tend to gravitate towards that narrow focus. I’m not saying there’s not some benefit to that, but the most accurate focus, the most sustainable focus, the most effortless focus that he talks about is a diffused kind of focus. It’s where you start to become very aware of the spaciousness around you and within you. In fact, Fehmi has come up with a method where you just start visualizing space. It’s that simple. When you do, your brain starts to create synchronous alpha brain waves.
Technically, the zone state would be a combination of three different brain waves: high beta/gamma, alpha, and theta. When they’re all balanced—that’s your zone state. With the alpha state, we find a lot of dopamine release, dopamine being paramount in facilitating attention and focus. But there is also a serotonin release, and it’s part of what makes us feel good.
When you have that balance of dopamine and serotonin going through a properly trained brain, it can turn on and off the natural pharmacy in the brain, very naturally and spontaneously. Rather than trying to ingest Zen, you really become Zen through the training of your mind.
Shawn: I like this distinction; rather than trying to ingest, one can manifest Zen, right?
Eric: Absolutely. One of the things we do try to differentiate in our work is that we do not say that the Profound Meditation Program, the NeuroStrength™ program that we’re going to be presenting, or brainwave entrainment in general creates the Zen state. What we’re doing with these precise brainwave states is creating some very coherent states that trigger the optimal use of your natural neurotransmitters and hormones so that it’s easier for you to enter into a meditative state while you’re meditating, regardless of what your tradition is.
Shawn: Okay, I’ve got to interrupt you for just a second, Eric.
Shawn: Did you say NeuroStrength™?
Eric: Yes, sir.
Shawn: Are you working on it?
Eric: Yes, sir.
Shawn: That’s cool. I’m excited. Tell me about what NeuroStrength™ is.
Eric: NeuroStrength™ is basically three tracks with what we consider a very sophisticated, cutting-edge combination of audio entrainment and subtle energetic entrainment. You listen to the tracks through simple headphones or earbuds.
The first track will get you right into the zone stage; it’s 15 minutes long.
The second track is a 30-minute track that you can put on repeat—this is what you listen to while you work out. It will give you a ton of energy. It works with your brain waves and your subtle energetic field to get you into a super-focused state; a high energetic state in order to maintain a very high intensity workout for extended periods of time.
The third track is a cool down track. This track has specific brainwave patterns in it, which are designed to trigger the release of endorphins and therefore speed up the recovery process.
The short-term effect and benefit of listening to NeuroStrength™ is that it will make your workouts more focused. If you’re going into a workout feeling a little bit under the weather, not at your best, it’s going to help you get into the zone so you can work at your best. It’s also going to help you naturally emit the hormones and neurotransmitters that support recovery.
The long-term effect of listening to these tracks is that they will actually train your brain and nervous system, over time, to become super focused, super energetic, and super relaxed, and to be able to move from a highly focused, energetic state to a highly relaxed state and back again, effortlessly. The more you listen, the more you can access that skill, even when you’re not using it.
Shawn: Totally awesome, Eric.
How to Use
Download the iAwake App
First, download the FREE iAwake App, login with your email and all your tracks will be right there. You can stream them, but we’d advise downloading them (from within the app) to ensure an interruption-free experience, and to be able to listen offline.
Headphones are required.
Track 1 – Enter the Zone (Pre-Workout Track)
As the title suggests, this track will help you enter the “Zone” state quickly and easily by entraining your brain to specific brainwave patterns and states, facilitating high energy, relaxed focus, and a deeply centered mind-body awareness for peak performance.
STEP 1 – POSTURE: We generally recommend listening while sitting upright with eyes closed, as this helps preserve attention and minimize distraction for optimal entrainment.
STEP 2 – INTENTION + ATTENTION: Before pushing the play button, consciously set your intention as to what you wish to accomplish in this training session. This helps prime your brain and nervous system for precision and success. After pushing the “play” button, allow your full attention to be gently but thoroughly given over to the audio environment, especially the faint tones in the background. Neuroscience shows that giving your full attention to a stimulus essentially opens a flood gate for new neural energy and information to flow in and help you achieve your goals. Plainly speaking, this practice of Intention + Attention will radically increase the efficacy of your mental and physical training.
STEP 3 – MENTAL REHEARSAL AND PREPARATION: We’ll be intentionally activating the frontal lobes of our brain to engage focused concentration and the power of the imagination to create peak performance.
Neuroscience researcher, Joe Dispenza, defines mental rehearsal as “remembering what we want to demonstrate, and then cognitively experiencing what it is like to physically do the action step by step” (Evolve Your Brain, 2007). As you rehearse mentally, you are in fact laying the groundwork for new neural networks, synaptic connections and dendritic branching to quite literally rewire your brain for peak performance.
Now simply visualize your perfect training session. And don’t worry whether or not you can evoke distinct visual images. “Visualization” here refers not only to visual images but images of any sort, whether they be auditory, kinesthetic, intuitive, a general feeling, or what have you.
What matters most in this instance is not the mode of visualization you use, but the precision of intention and feeling with which you evoke this inner image. Allow whatever rehearsal mode that feels most natural to you to be okay.
Simply put, you want to embody the profound inner experience of accuracy, effortlessness and maximum performance while mentally rehearsing your training session. Each time you enter into this state, you will be accruing “Zone minutes.”
According to Sports psychologist Thomas Hawes, the more of these “Zone minutes” you accrue with consistent mental training over time, the more often incredible reserves of energy and effortless focus will seem to “come out of nowhere” to help you break your personal performance records.
When the track is finished, anchor the deeply relaxed yet highly focused and motivated state into your body consciously by “soaking it up” and thoroughly feeling it and enjoying it for a minute or two. Then inwardly state to yourself your intention to bring this peak performance awareness into your workout session.
Track 2 – Focused Intensity (Workout Track)
Listen to this track during your training session, and remain inwardly centered in the original intention and vision you set before your workout.
This track can be looped for as long as you like by setting your player on “repeat.”
Track 3 – Cool Down and Recovery (Post-Workout Track)
This track facilitates a profound state of relaxation, releasing healthy endorphins and growth hormone to help speed up recovery.
Follow the same instructions for listening with Track 1. Instead of visualizing, however, you can just allow your attention to gently rest upon the nature sounds in the soundtrack, without exerting any strenuous mental effort.
When you use these three tracks in succession on a daily basis, you will train your brain to easily transition from highly focused, energetic states to deep relaxation (and back again).
Neural Entrainment Technology
NeuroStrength™ features a number of unique neural entrainment methodologies, including:
- Dual-Pulse Binaural Signals (exclusive)
- Harmonic Layering
- Isochronic Entrainment
- Left-Hemispheric Stimulation (for peak sports performance)
- Exclusive Entrainment Waveforms (for increased entrainment)
NeuroStrength™’s proprietary technology uses specially proportioned and combined waveforms. One of the unique waveform proportions uses the Golden Proportion (PHI), which has been found in one scientific study to play an essential role in the synthesis of new brainwave patterns from two or more brainwave signatures. That same wave proportion has also been found to have a profound centering effect on mental processes. Another part of this combined waveform proportion uses an exclusive wave proportion empirically found to revitalize the nervous system, while also facilitating deep relaxation.
Track 1 – Enter the Zone
This pre-performance preparation track features various alpha and gamma frequencies for effortless focus and poised relaxation: the Zone-state.
Track 2 – Focused Intensity
This high energy track features an even more sophisticated blend of theta, alpha, beta and gamma frequencies. When used during intense exercise or sports performance, it not only fuels the high-intensity energy needed for maximum performance, but also facilitates the uncommonly deep, centered focus and poise that accompanies effortless mind-body FLOW.
Track 3 – Cool Down and Recovery
This post-workout track facilitates enhanced recovery by encouraging deep relaxation, metabolic efficiency and the natural production of growth hormone. It features frequencies in the alpha, theta and delta ranges.

It just makes my workout much better, more caring, stronger and more calm. Also, the simple but really important idea to divide your workout (preparation, working and cool-down) is by itself a great practice and addition. The idea might be simple, but a program that is divided like this, supports you to actually do it rather than just liking the concept. I’m often guilty of knowing a lot of good stuff I could do, but I don’t do them…. ~ Samuel Törnqvist
I believe NeuroStrength™ could help anyone to work out harder and longer. For anyone who is serious about exercising body, mind & spirit simultaneously, I’d even say it’s a must-try. But way more important than any of that, it’s greatly enhanced my ability to direct my attention, to focus intensely while remaining in a place of inner relaxation. If you’ve ever struggled with the mind’s monkeys….here’s your monkey wrench 😉 ~ Carsten Christiani
