MINDFITNESS TRAINING: Neurofeedback and The Process by Adam Crane and Richard Soutar, Ph.D. Writers Club Press, 2000. This fascinating book blends science, psychology, philosophy and mysticism into an inspirational and highly authoritative exploration of the mind. Seldom does a purportedly scientific book take what at first glance, judging by the title, appears to be dry, clinical research data and transform those brain wave analyses into an expansion of individual and collective consciousness. However, this is exactly what the authors attempt to do and, I would argue, in fact do. After reading this book, or should I say savoring this book, I felt a connection between the rhythms and patterns of my own brain and the rhythms and patterns of the Universe. It was probably a liminal moment to which the authors allude. Adam Crane is an entrepreneur thoroughly credentialed in Biofeedback and Neurofeedback with 30 years experience in medical/educational biofeedback and applied psychophysiology. He is the President of American BioTec, Director of BioMonitoring International and BioTec Corporations, and Founder of Health Training Seminars. Richard Soutar, Ph.D. is a professor at Arizona State University and is Director of Biofeedback Services for the Neuro Performance Center in Phoenix. He lectures and gives workshops on social psychology and clinical neurofeedback. They are on a mission with Adam's MindFitness Training program to expand the consciousness of humanity so that our individual minds learn how to access Universal Mind. This is not the typical mission statement for a neurofeedback specialist, but through a program called The Process, it seems they are picking up where Carl Jung left off with his treatises on psychoanalysis. On a less grand scale, it seems possible to provide life and performance enhancement learning through these techniques. The idea that we can modify our perceptions and our states of consciousness is an ancient idea and has been suggested by cultures throughout time. All have given great importance to Attention as the method by which this is done. In the MindFitness program, with the technology of neurofeedback, the authors discuss a method to help clients attain Profound Attention which is defined as the ability to see with brain and heart. The MindFitness Training program includes The Process with its nine stages. In raw form, The Process sounds like the ancient teachings of Raja Yoga, the study of the mind through the yogic tradition. The authors allude to this connection and define Raja Yoga as the royal road to 'union' and the maximization of one's unique potential. The Process includes nine two hour modules for how to develop Profound Attention to 'what is'. The Process is part of a lifetime of learning as a human being which is a continual work in progress in order to be the best 'artist of living' possible. In brief, the content of the nine sessions includes the following concepts and sound like training to be a Yogi or Yogini: (1) Extraordinary life enhancing changes are possible through the use of these techniques, (2) Each 'artist of living' must bring a sense of mission to the journey, (3) The 'artist of living' must include learning about the mind through learning about and fully experiencing the body, (4) The 'artist of living' will bring Attention to his/her thinking to bring about higher orders of intelligence, (5) Attention to Attention brings about flexibility of thought and dimensionality to the thinking processes, (6) Improving the quality of sleep improves the quality of awake time, (7) Economic order and well-being provides the freedom to self-actualize as an 'artist of living', (8) Eliminating negativity and the unnecessary frees artist's energy for focus on fully
