Each moment of our lives, from birth to death, our brains are engaged in an endless symphony of patterns. In Awakening the Mind, Anna Wise reveals how a careful understanding of the four types of brain waves, and the practice of carefully designed meditation exercises that lead to a mastery of each type, can vastly improve everyday focus, memory, concentration, and overall mental awareness.
Over the past three decades, Wise has measured the brain-wave patterns of spiritual teachers, artists, high-performing businessmen, athletes, and other highly creative and productive individuals. She discovered that, during periods of peak mental awareness and clarity, they all exhibited a specific brain-wave pattern in which the four categories of brain wavesalpha, beta, theta, and deltacombined in a distinct configuration. In this book, Wise provides meditation exercises specially developed to lead readers to achieve that heightened mental state referred to as the Awakened Mind.

Anna integrates Scientific Knowledge of Brainwaves into Meditative Practices. She explains what Brainwaves are active during mental, emotional, and spiritual states. Then teaches how to use Alpha, Beta, Theta and Delta waves, separately or combinations, to awaken those States of Being. She teaches how to master one's mind. This book is a very thorough description of Alpha, Beta, Theta, and Delta. Each has an entire chapter. My one complaint is that this doesn't cover Gama Brainwaves.
The desciption of the book of the 3 levels of the mind and the brain waves associated with them is very interesting.But the real value of the book are the exercises or meditations as a way to develop the unused powers of our minds.Excellent book.
There are three book I consider essential. These books show your mind is infinite. They are:
