Seminars Descriptions
Seminar 1: Includes contextual history of the Awakened Mind and Mind Mirror; the five brainwave categories and their content; the Meditation, Awakened Mind, Evolved Mind, Superconscious Gamma Synchrony, and Universal Consciousness
brainwave patterns; use of the Vilistus Mind Mirror 6 EEG and its three physiology meters: Galvanic Skin Response, Blood Volume Pulse, and Temperature; Mind Mirror software operation and data analysis; and hands-on practice with electrode
placements. The trainee is monitored on the Mind Mirror during four or more meditations used in the Anna Wise Protocol and learns to analyze the data as a means to technical mastery, mind-expansion, and personal self-development.

Seminar 2: Includes brainwave vocabulary and a deeper understanding of brainwave patterns and how to interpret them. The trainee's brainwave patterns are monitored during a Brainwave Profile and a series of meditations for beta mastery,
alpha development, theta development, and the Awakened Mind pattern. This seminar focuses on the structural basis of Awakened Mind meditations and how to compose and lead them. The student practices drawing brainwave patterns and
leads another student through the Brainwave Profile. By the end of this seminar, the student is prepared to do the independent study work described below.

Seminar 3/Practicum 1: This seminar is open only to people working toward certification as an Awakened Mind Consciousness Trainer. The trainee is expected to have completed all independent study work. Twenty-five sets of brainwave drawings and five case histories are presented to the teacher for feedback. At least two of the required six original meditations are presented to the group and teacher for critique and possible improvement. Each trainee receives feedback and continued instruction on voice and presentation. This seminar also focuses on how to deal with content arising from the subconscious. The trainee continues to develop his/her consciousness by being monitored on the Mind Mirror during several higher-state meditations and an Awakened Mind session conducted by the teacher while the group observes. Instruction on data analysis continues.

Seminar 4/Practicum 2: This seminar focuses on how to conduct group brainwave trainings. Includes planning for three-hour, one-day, weekend, three-day, and fiveday workshops (the "grid" system); leading groups in meditation; processing content within a group format; group dynamics; ethics; bio-monitoring and giving feedback within the group context; addressing "energetics," spiritual crisis and spiritual development; and how to attract and build a practice.

In this final practicum each student leads the group in at least one original meditation and receives feedback on presentation and content. The student is monitored on the Mind Mirror during several higher-state meditations.
The purpose of the practicums is to provide an opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge and ability while receiving feedback and developing their skills. Certification is awarded when the student exhibits satisfactory knowledge
of the material and techniques, and displays at least an eyes-closed Awakened Mind pattern. Both criteria ensure the trainee's ability to help others awaken their minds. Some practitioner trainers administer written tests, which must be satisfactorily passed in order for certification to be given.

Independent Study Work: Includes five brainwave sessions with each of five subjects (a total of 25 sessions). These five sets of brainwave drawings and five case histories (typed in English) are presented to the teacher before or at the beginning of Seminar 3, along with six original meditations previously assigned and designed to develop specific brainwave categories and patterns. The independent study work reflects the student's depth of understanding and ability to do the work. It also provides students with the skills and confidence needed to become a professional EEG Awakened Mind Consciousness Trainer.

Commonly Asked Questions
— Who trains to become a practitioner?
— People from all walks of life study with us to become certified awakened mind practitioners: meditators, body workers, scientists, psychologists, physicians, neurofeedback and biofeedback therapists, NLP practitioners, software developers, visual and performing artists, mind researchers, and, of course, consciousness explorers.
— What kind of background is necessary?
— Most people have some background in the helping professions. But the only prerequisite is an interest in the body, mind and spirit, and an understanding borne of experience that awakened mind meditation gets us in touch with our subconscious wisdom for life guidance and inner peace and healing.
— Who developed the program?
— The Practitioner Training Program was developed, used, and perfected over the course of a decade by Anna Wise, who was Max Cade's American protégée. Wise became the world authority on EEG awakened mind training.

The content of the Practitioner Training Program is based on their pioneering mind research and includes Wise's own studies on extraordinary individuals. In addition to her books and recordings, Wise led 60 group training seminars at Esalen Institute, one of the world's leading human growth centers, over a period of thirty years.

IAM has used this comprehensive, life-enhancing Practitioner Training Program to train people from Australia, Canada, Croatia, England, France, India, Israel, Poland, Russia, Germany, Switzerland, and all across America. We have updated the curriculum to include the most recent discoveries in the investigative fields of the brain, meditation and consciousness, including our own.

Another Day in Paradise

"Graham and Oxana live on several acres of farmland surrounded on three sides by a cold, winding creek filled with the raw crystals that draw people to this vortex of higher consciousness. Tall trees beckon koala bears, kookaburras, and other exotic birds whose loud chittering, clattering, clacking, and whistling songs are quite comical.

Kangaroos peek out of the woods, and birds fly over in huge flocks all day long. A gaggle of three geese honks their way through the yard at will, courtesy of their owners: New Age hippies who live across the road on green, hilly properties. Graham's chickens provide fresh eggs each day, and Oxana cooks with fresh vegetables from their garden and fresh, ripe fruit from their mandarin, orange, and lemon trees.

Each morning two years ago and again this June, I stood on their wrap-around veranda with a cup of ginger, lemon, and honey tea in hand, and greeted the day with my mantra: "Another day in paradise."

Oxana and Graham do indeed live in what this writer and perhaps you too would consider paradise. Friends who live in their isolated, commune-like neighborhood visit regularly to cadge breakfast, lunch or dinner. Oxana is a master chef who quickly prepares elaborate meals with fresh, organic foods, mostly from their own gardens. They farm and sell ginger and turmeric. The sun rises and sets on their home with gentle light and soft winds that whisper, "You are home."

If these descriptions seem overly romanticized, consider visiting Oxana for an Awakened Mind training and see for yourself."
