Releasing the ANGST from Your SELF
It’s like a dance. Everything is dancing; even the molecules inside our cells are dancing. But we make our lives so heavy by carrying incredibly heavy burdens we think is our security. We feel confused, anxious, stale from an overactive ego.

The Emotional, Alienating, Depressing Pain of living in our times and the market opportunity for graduates of our Neurocoaching Diploma Course.  

The modern world is in the grip of a crisis. More people (from age of 30 to 80) are anxious, depressed and medicated than at any other time in our history.

Indicators of despair—depression, suicidal ideation, drug use and alcohol abuse—are rising among Americans in their late 30s and early 40s across most demographic groups, according to new research by Medicine, Health and Society and Public Policy Studies at Vanderbilt University. These findings suggest that the increase in “deaths of despair” observed among middle-aged Baby Boomers (born 1946-1964) in recent studies are impacting the youngest members of Generation X (born 1974-1983).

Results (Neuroscience New, April, 2019) suggest that rising despair among the young adults now reaching midlife cuts across racial/ethnic, educational, and geographic group.

One of the keys to our well-being lies in how our brains culturally perceive the world. The latest research explains that our cultural beliefs are even more powerful than our genes, and demonstrates how these belief systems set us up for self-sabotaging behavior that negatively effects our well-being.

It’s not easy being human. It never was, really.

The Rise of Naturalism
-and Waves of Angst
Some scientists, like the late, extremely popular Stephen Hawking, argue that we have no soul, no fixed self, and no inherent purpose. We exist simply because we exist, tiny specks on a small planet in an infinite universe, and not because a god made the Earth for us. This conception, called “naturalism,” leaves many people feeling deeply uneasy—consciously or unconsciously—and casting about for meaning.

We are busy building some security and sacrificing our present for the future in an increasingly complex world.

Much of society is suffering a crisis of “neuroexistentialism” -expressed anxiety. More and more people are questioning the meaning of their life and what difference they are going to make. Life is hard, it’s difficult so it’s easy to be swamped by doubts and existential angst.

Today’s profound cultural, social changes and political polarization continue to provoke widespread malaise and ultimately prompt a rehabilitated and reconstructed view of what it means to be human.

This contemporary angst suggests that introspection, or self-knowledge, can’t really reveal the mind, and that death is the end for us all. If the brain’s processes give us our experience of life and there is no “immaterial spirit” or soul, then when the brain stops functioning, nothing follows life, and nothing “survives” us. Along with this understanding of ourselves as animals governed by natural laws and physical mechanisms comes another loss—the sense of agency or free will.

We don’t necessarily know why we feel adrift, but for many people who place their faith in knowledge and don’t believe in a god, it’s become more difficult to believe their lives matter. Scientific findings are undermining many traditional notions that previously gave people a sense of specialness, a feeling that who they are matters, and that the self is real. Increasingly, however, scientists are finding that the self is a kind of necessary illusion manufactured by the brain and often more fragile than we’d like to imagine.

Meanwhile, suicide, depression, and anxiety are on the rise. In the US, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last year revealed that deaths by suicide rose by 25% since 1999 across most ethnic and age groups. This trend isn’t just a result of lack of adequate mental health services. We’re facing a new, contemporary “crisis of meaningless.” In order to keep existential anxiety at bay, we must find and maintain perceptions of our lives as meaningful. We are a species that strives not just for survival, but also for significance. We want lives that matter. It is when people are not able to maintain meaning that they are most psychologically vulnerable.

The quest for significance that has helped us survive has also rendered us distinctively ruminative. Humans seek meaning, but it’s harder than ever to feel our lives matter for a number of reasons including increased alienation, smaller families, and a declining belief in religion.

We don’t yet have an understanding of what this means for us as individuals or a vocabulary to discuss the new self-as-illusion. The old ideas are difficult to abandon because they have been around for thousands of years. The new, alternate view of humanity makes some people feel lost and alone, leading them to conclude that a meaningful life is impossible.

Quantum physics concludes that time doesn’t exist and neither do we physically. And, there’s no essential meaning in the universe, as evidenced by both its vastness and randomness. So, how can a life matter on a personal and human scale and what hopes do we have for finding a higher purpose or meaning in the universe?

But our lives and societies matter simply because we exist and coexist and appreciate meaning. So we can act purposefully even if we are not part of some grand cosmic plan.

Psychologist and cognitive neuroscience luminary M. Gazzaniga, head of the University of California at Santa Barbara’s SAGE Center for the Study of the Mind, argues that there’s no problem presented by the naturalist view of humanity. We’re responsible and moral because our brains have evolved capabilities that allow us to be.

We reason, remember, perceive, and judge as a result of cognitive mechanisms. And because we have these abilities, we’ve also developed social practices that demand that we think and be responsible for each other. The universe may be random, and cause and effect may not always be related on a mechanistic level, but within the human experience, we have certain obligations and the capability to meet these.

As Thomas Clark, of Brandeis University’s Institute for Behavioral Health explains, we don’t need god to be good. There are scientific bases for moral behavior. Clark writes, “For one thing, science can explain why we are moral animals, moral to such an extent that no amount of science will end up debunking our hard-wired intuitions about ethics.”

There’s evidence that altruism, cooperation, compassion and affection are “biologically installed,” so we don’t require a higher power to force us to consider others’ needs. “The very worry about moral foundations is testament to the reality of our moral natures, so learning they are modulated by such humble chemicals as oxytocin and vasopressin isn’t likely to render us morally incapacitated,” he argues.


There is a “new alliance” between neuroscience and psychotherapy that is now taking place.

We need to make use of the knowledge and insights of the behavioral, cognitive, and neurosciences to satisfy our existential concerns and achieve a level of flourishing and fulfilment. Ignoring the scientific evidence of our reality isn’t going to resuscitate dated notions of god. We need to better understand our self, our human specialness to make life more meaningful. We need to learn how to transform our anxiety into a positive energy form that empowers us to life a richer, more productive, healthier, happier life….a life that matters.

The key is to find our purpose and sense of being and then we can make life meaningful.

Our unique Neurocoaching course teaches our students how to use the latest evidence-based, proven scientific tools and techniques to help their clients reset their mindset empowering them to fulfill their potential and live a life on purpose and with greater meaning.

Personal Performance
Focus and emotional balance is the key to performance in all areas. A person’s ability to focus and concentrate is hindered when stress and tension is carried in the body. Our unique course also teaches students how to increase their client's energy levels, resilience and ability to deal with pain, stress and mental clarity. As a by-product, decision making capabilities, focus, productivity, competency and IQ are also enhanced.

Harnessing the principle of neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to change itself) the course’s techniques and tools focus on accessing the subconscious mind and the limbic section of the brain that is the critical link to the brain-mind-body union and how we can affect neural changes.

The targeted behavioral intervention's objective is to achieve perceptual self-awareness and learn powerful, self-empowering, brain-mind-body change techniques for rejuvenation, health, happiness and well-being.

Students also learn how to harness the power of their client’s Brain and Mind to effect sustainable self changes.
- The process of developing deep, self-awareness and learning from one’s past, present, and future.
- The ability to self-assess and self-change.

As a student you will acquire easy-to-use, practical, neuropsychological tools that incorporate the following key psychological principles and techniques : Self-actualization, Self-Concept, Self Esteem, Self Identity and Working in the Conscious, Unconscious and Super Consciousness Zone.

A key part of our approach is also about how to use our proprietary experiential mental exercises which help boosts endorphin levels that stimulate and balance the Immune system and promote the repair of cells and tissues to build a healthier, stronger younger version of the brain. After just several days of regular (at home) practice of their custom designed, brain-mind-body change tool (15 mins a day) clients typically report decreased anxiety, better mental clarity, more restful sleep, improved mood, and a host of other benefits without side effects.

Other Benefits
Among other things, the courses tools and techniques help improve mental and physical performance, IQ and EQ, intuition, stamina, creativity, relationship satisfaction, and happiness.
