The Neurology of Presence
“Be Here Now”
Spiritual teachings such as this quote from Ram Dass, are traditionally applied primarily to the mind, but “Be Here Now” is actually a profound physical challenge when looked at through the lens of the nervous system:
- How well can I employ all of my senses to fully experience the world around me?
- Am I able to feel my body accurately, coordinate my movement, and focus my thoughts on the task at hand?
- Can I precisely and efficiently direct my whole being to respond appropriately to the needs of this moment?
The degree to which I can answer YES to all of these questions is a measure of my ability to fully participate in an experience. We all have goals: life experiences we are called to but have not yet had. Achieving new goals often requires waking up parts of the nervous system that we may not even be aware are underperforming. Although physical in application, in many ways, Neuro Performance Training is as spiritual as it gets!
Neuro Performance Training
In actuality, all of life is training your nervous system; your brain adapts constantly to whatever you do. The question, then, is whether the results of your “life inputs” are supporting your performance goals, or potentially hindering them. Thankfully, with the help of functional applied neuroscience, we can now minimize the guess work. My primary goal as a Neuro Performance Coach is to teach you how to communicate with your nervous system, allowing you to prioritize positive inputs, individualize and maximize your training, and take real-time assessments of your progress as you work efficiently to achieve your current goals. Best of all, with your new box of neuro-tools, you can continue to elevate your highest potential for the rest of your life!
In its simplest form, there are 2 steps to achieving any goal:
Utilizing simple tools taken from cutting-edge neuroscience, we can reduce pain, anxiety, fatigue, inflexibility, immobility, dizziness, poor balance, poor movement, or anything else that you feel is currently blocking you from achieving your goals, AND prevent injury or harm from hindering you down the road.
Our goals and desires are flares sent up by our highest selves to be more than we are currently. Harnessing the maximum potential of our nervous system allows us to show up as the person we know we can be. Together, we can design a program for you to reach your performance potential.
I offer customized individual training programs to help you achieve your goals. Thanks to the advances of modern neuroscience, the sky is truly the limit to what we can become. The only question is…. what do you want to work on first?
