let's get BRAINSAVVY

Step 1: The basics

  1. Your brain seeks safety. Above all, our brains are invested in keeping us alive. Over time, they use cues about safety and danger to build and evolve maps that encode a certain view of the world. Vast neural networks contain countless maps of safety and danger that shape our perceptions and experiences—and dictate our discoverable pathways. This insight paves the way for a transformative approach to pathfinding.

  2. Your mind is emergent. It is not a place. It's an embodied and relational process. It emerges in an effort to regulate the flow of energy and information. Your mind is a real-time reporter of the maps your brain is making, and it reports via sensations, images, feelings, and thoughts. 

  3. Your brain needs your mind. Your brain depends on your mind to monitor and modify the balance of safety and danger cues in your sensations, images, feelings and thoughts. Danger cues fuel neuronal firing that looks like fight, flight, freeze or collapse. Safety cues fuel neuronal firing that looks like vitality, clarity, compassion, curiosity, inspiration, readiness, confidence, belonging, and peace. In other words, safety cues shape a vital neuroplastic experience in your brain—and create pathways that lead you where you want to go.

  4. The key is partnership. Most minds require some expansion to sustain a flow of safety cues. How? With tools that harness the brain's superpowers for noticing. With brainsavvy tools, your mind can strategically use sensation, imagery, feeling and thought to build an interroceptive partnership with your brain. The result is a more resourceful, creative experience of pathfinding. It's the key to better experiences in real-time and neuroplastic expansion of your pathways over time.

  5. Brainsavvy is your birthright.  Neuroscience research is advancing at unprecedented speed, and the age of brainsavvy is unfolding. It's just in time; human nervous systems are facing unprecedented demand. We cannot fight, flee, freeze, or collapse our way into a safe experience—so the promise of thriving lies in our minds.

    Good thing we have two.
