- Ron LaPlace
- "My Alpha 1 Training at Biocybernaut has been a transformative experience on every level. I came into the training
thinking of myself as a person who "knew himself", having spent years in the practice of various forms of meditation
and other self-improvement work. On the very first day of the Alpha training I learned several immense lessons. The
first was that I was not being totally honest with myself. The detailed and instantaneous feedback that the training provides
combined with the loving and patient space held by the Biocybernaut Trainer made the revealing of this truth something
to be celebrated rather than feared. The brain-wave feedback offers "no place to hide" and as I realized this I knew that I had come
to a moment where the potential for my highest healing had arrived... as long as I chose to accept the opportunity.
It is my experience that the tools developed by Dr. Hardt and used in practice at Biocybernaut offer an extremely accelerated
approach to true healing and transformation within the individual. I participated with 3 others in the 1 week training and I witnessed
that each of us received powerful insights and a real shift in our way of dealing with life. It is my opinion that this change will be lasting.
I look forward to watching how the shift which I feel within will manifest itself without, so that what is now opinion will soon be knowing.
And I look forward to the Alpha Level 2 training, which also says a lot about how I feel... the journey continues."
- Robert Colt, Transformational Seminar Teacher/Entrepreneur
- "If you really want to experience the most fascinating, profound, and
life changing journey into inner space go to Dr. Jim Hardt's brilliant
biofeedback institute. I am amazed by the continuing experience of
daily increase in brain power, positive energy, and creativity. When
you go you will also experience the genius, kindness, and care of Dr.
Hardt who is clearly an example of the work that IS his life."
- Will Bunker
- "Opened me up to experience spiritual things. Felt like I
was able to access my creativity in an amazing way. Later, I still
have a bedrock of calm and feel more in touch with visualization
ability. It's a great system run by a world class scientist."
- Zen Master Ryuho Yamada Roshi, Feb. 2000
- "Biocybernaut training doubled my understanding of the
dimensionality of consciousness. ... Biocybernaut Alpha One training
corrected aspects of my practice of Zen. It confirmed other aspects,
and overall deepened my practice of Zazen. ... For me, Biocybernaut
technology is better than having your own Zen Master, because it is
always there and checks your meditation every second. Any Zen Master
is busy with many students, and only if you have major attainment you
get maybe a smile or a nod of the head from the Master, and that may
be hours later, long after attainment. Biocybernaut's brain wave
feedback training is better meditation teacher than working directly
with Zen Master."
- Bobbi Hurtig
- "I particularly enjoyed the effect of following the guided
fantasies when learning how to raise alpha. I felt much more powerful
in my ability to understand the strong relationship between my
thoughts, brain function and the feeling of euphoria and lucidity.
Once I understood what alpha felt like (and non alpha) I could
knowingly direct my thoughts in a healthy direction and veer away from
negative thoughts, knowing why they were unhealthy for me."
- Nathan Miller, Oregon
- "This week has been an exhilarating process with exciting
steps in learning about my own consciousness and being aware that I am
in control of it. To be able to hear feedback on the results of my
efforts to maintain a higher state of mind is uplifting. Also really
enjoyed Jim's insights and wisdom!"
- Todd Grannis, Oregon
- "The deepest conscious relaxation I've ever experienced. An
amazing journey in self-awareness!"
- Betsy Kropf, Interior Designer
- "The greatest insight is my feeling of strength, of power.
I often have to look at myself and ask 'is this me?' ... This will
always be one of the greatest weeks of my life."
- A. R-C. J.
- "The training was an amazing experience. I had no
expectations. I found it initially very frustrating, and was unable to
do anything but get very low scores. After about day 3 or 4 I gave up,
stopped trying and suddenly it became easy. Once it started working
for me, I found it allowed many issues to surface, as well as give me
a clear perspective of the issues, and my role in them. It was as if a
thousand light bulbs went off, almost too fast for me to register what
the issues were and why they were issues and what was needed to
resolve or let go of them. Yet they seemed to pop like bubbles on the
surface of water. Immediately after the training I felt clear as a
bell. I felt almost clairvoyant, in the sense I could 'read' people
and situations far beyond the usual and could get all the underlying
currents in exchanges as if they were spoken aloud. I also felt
incredibly calm. What remains is clearly a conviction we can train
our brains. I think the indirect benefits of the training are still
with me, as it allowed me to release issues to the surface and deal
with them quickly, and move from feeling overwhelmed by a number of
things and behaviors to refusing to be drawn into them. It was like a
jump start to what in retrospect appeared to be a stagnation in my
- Desi Williamson
- "Weeks later I made up my mind based upon certain aspects of
the training to take action and that's where I believe that the
training started to make a big difference. If people are really ready
for information, and change then this would be of great value to
them. If they are sick and tired of being sick and tired, then this is
an answer that can yield them measurable results. I would recommend
this very strongly to those who are ready for serious change."
- Gunnar Hurtig, Venture Capitalist
- "Thanks to the Biocybernaut Alpha training, I have had the most
productive five months in the history of my business. I am mentally more
efficient and have a clarity I never thought possible."
- "Best medicine in the world. With proper practice, one can
mentally troubleshoot ones body to 'see' if anything is wrong. Can
save your life. Jim might be able to explain what happened to me when
I was attacked and mugged in 1995. I was able to get my heart rate,
which was past the scale, so to speak, according to the paramedics, to
normal within 3 minutes. The paramedic said he has never seen this
happen before and he has been a paramedic for over 15 years. Hooray
for mind control!"
- Carlos Urdaneta
- "The time it takes for my thought process to handle
something has been sharply accelerated (quickened), impacting my value
system and impacting the direction in which I must focus my life to
reach Alpha (happiness & fulfillment). My true direction in life
(personal/professional) is no longer guided by my analytical mind; it
is over-ridden by my heart. Often when I think with my heart,
everything goes wrong at the beginning. However, the outcome of those
heart guided decisions is more desirable in relevance to the life path
I wish to take, so the initial discomfort from everything going wrong
at the beginning is no longer a bother. It is like developing a
built-in (biological) I-Ching on steroids. Now I am truly happy thanks
to my adhesion to the values and actions that enhance my Alpha
waves. I was taught at Biocybernaut how my mind, body and soul feel,
when reaching high Alpha (built in I-Ching on steroids). When running
through a mental menu of life's choices, there is often a choice that
triggers my most potent Alpha waves and that is often the option I
- Chris, Asia, Pacific
- "After a few months I became a more relaxed person and my
emotions became more normal versus some amount of anger or rage that I
would feel in the past. My ups and downs days would reduce and I had
more balanced emotions. My wife noticed a lot of difference and I
started to become aware that I was beginning to enjoy a sense of bliss
rather than moody days or losing my temper. Four years later, I am now
very stable in my emotions. Although I get an occasional moody day or
get upset and lose my temper (perhaps once per year versus once every
two months in the past), I would say that I am very pleased with the
current state. I am less sensitive to remarks made by others about me,
do not get triggered by certain statements made by my close ones. It's
amazing how this training can change behaviour. I highly recommend
- Denver Coleman, Psychologist
- "It was extremely challenging to be able to use my mind in a
way previously unknown to me, and to allow it to function at a new
level. This was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life
... I have more awareness of what my mind can do, so I expect more of
myself and I produce more. I seem to be clearer in my relationship
with life and what I'm doing. The training makes life much more fun
and much easier."
- Judy Bulawski, Working Mother
- "Even five years after doing the training, there is a
wonderful sense of freedom from fear. And that sense of freedom is
- Bruce Train, Business Lawyer
- "I have 10 or 15 clients at a time who all want priority and
they all want to go first ... After the 4th day of the Alpha
training, as I was leaving the building, I suddenly realized my whole
internal state of being had been transformed. I felt a sort of
powerful calm and a real absence of anxiety ... When I interact with
people, instead of reacting in a state of anxiety, I feel confident.
I thoroughly enjoy my work in a way I never have before."
- Fellow Biocybernaut
- "I believe this training is a delicate integration of and
onto less travelled grounds. Having a dedicated caring soul such as
Jim Hardt who offers his hand into these domains without judgement
sure made my steps into these inner dimensions easier and safer to
take. The training was self-challenging, exciting, and due to the
constant real time feedback, certainly gratifying. The time out to
time in was worth the week. It took months to full cognate and
resonate with some of its more subtle effects and messages. Sure took
the training wheels off my bicycle!
- Steve, Park City, Utah, USA
- "If you have a sincere desire to explore your inner
collective consciousness and wisdom in a safe environment call Jim. I
would recommend this program to anybody who wants to fast track their
evolvement in these fields."
- Evertt E.
- "Besides having dramatic increase in the power and coherency
of my Alpha and Theta waves it seems that life got a whole lot easier
and simpler. And it seems to continue to uncomplicate. Yes, I still
have issues, but deep down I know that I have a solid base of inner
strength on which to draw. I can experience the Alpha or Theta states
by visualizing the wave forms in color of course. Once you have them,
you have them, and the trainings at the Institute give you plenty of
time to learn and to experience them so that you can burn them in to
your brain. It's a treasure and a pleasure"
- Rob Puckett
- "This was the most powerful experience of my life. I want
to share this with all my family and my friends. Thank you for the
gifts you helped me to discover inside myself. Our future as a species
on this planet depends on what Biocybernaut can awaken within
people. I'll be there with you all in spirit. Onward and
- Rahasya Poe, Lotus Guide Magazine, Chico, CA
- "What I learned went deep and has stayed with me. I think
one of the most valuable tools for me (mentally, spiritually, and
emotionally) was and is the ability to forgive others more easily and
not take things so personal in the first place. At this point I'm not
sure where the training starts and stops, but I do know that it was an
integral part of my continued evolution as a spiritual being and I will
be forever grateful."
- Alex Captanian, Real Estate Broker
- "The effects of the training are most clearly evident in the
way I now respond to crisis. I can readily slip into a deeply relaxed
place. I have found a remarkable feeling of serenity, even when I
feel totally overwhelmed. I'm filled with joy and peace."
- Mary Morony
Wow o wow better than I could have ever dreamed of. The letters of
gratitude I've started and then been overwhelmed by are at this point
legion. I keep coming up with the best part was and before I can get
the best part on paper a new best part thought races to the front of
the line. I revel in my new best part thought for a while then
decide to write you and tell you how great the best part was. The
cycle continued until I got into my car and drove around doing my
usual things. As I was doing my errands I discovered there was
something missing -the noise--. The noise, the inner critic, the
constant babble had disappeared leaving only silence and joy. Bless
you and bless your training. It sounds trite to say that I have been
searching for this silence my whole life, but search I have. Nothing
I've done, be it courses I've taken, meditations techniques I've
tried, churches I've attended, affirmations I've repeated can hold
even a birthday candle to what your training has given me. I am
Mary Morony writes again -
On the second day of this new year (2006) I have had a day better than yesterday and yesterday was perfectly wonderful. I had two wonderful walks with three of my children two of whom you know, one you'll be getting to know soon. We talked about feelings and beliefs, joys, and aspirations. We talked about topics taboo,- before. We skipped about and played with each other in ways that I don't believe I would have even been able to imagine, much less hope for (before my Alpha One Training). Dreams not possible to dream have come true on levels I wouldn't have dared to consider and it's all your fault. Thank you.
My hope is, but really it is my knowing, that this will be the best year ever for you and me, et al.
- Dan Sullivan, Winnipeg Manitoba, Canada
- This time last week I was on my way home from the most amazing experience of my life.
In all of my 51 years I cannot recall a 7 day period where I was so completely in the moment.
How does one truly thank people who do the work of angels? Jim, with the technology you have
so meticulously developed, with the wisdom "you just know" and with a heart larger than life itself
you have created a thing of pure beauty. Grace, I could not have made it without your strength and openness.
Sharing the similarities of your life with mine the way you did transcends kindness. The love that flows from you is precious.
My experiences in the chamber and the canopied couch room will be in my heart forever.
I thought you both might like to know that I sat down with my three kids last Sunday, and over a
2 hour period shared my entire Biocybernaut experience with them. I left nothing out. There was
absolutely no resistance to the changes that need to be made. In fact they embraced the new
me and where we have go together with enthusiasm and love.
I feel so completely different and it feels good.
I continue to be amazed at how my Alpha 1 training has impacted my life.
I have this inner peace that I feel compelled to enrich daily and a constant feeling of gratitude.
I am blessed.
Dan Sullivan writes again -
It's taken me this long to clarify what I wanted to say to you and I'm still not sure it's truly representative of the deep feelings that I have.
When I first came to Biocybernaut last September I was in such bad shape that I really didn't understand what had happened when I left. I knew I had been healed, I knew that the entire experience was profoundly cathartic and I knew that I was not alone. However, I didn't understand.
This time you took me much deeper, to a problem that I have guarded my entire life. You exposed it and you made me deal with it.
In doing the chamber work I learned how to open my heart and let love flow and I learned unconditional love of myself. I am now calm, yet more focused than I have been in years. I am able to access feelings of gratitude and love daily which I know raises my alpha which In turn enhances my feelings of gratitude and love.
It's all good.
The technology is amazing and your personal insight is unmatched.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
- Chantal de Folleville in Normandy, France
- The process which started in your "lab" is going on,
and I can feel deep transforming forces at work in my being.
When I meditate, my awareness seems to split in two parts now, one staying alert, as in alpha,
the other one going very deeply in another level, while my body seems asleep.
- Ken (510)-417-9212
- I was having problems in my marriage and was on the verge of getting a
divorce. I had tried counseling and other types of emotional healing but
was still very confused about my marriage. I decided to participate
in the 7 day Alpha 1 program in hopes of either healing my marital problems
or to give me the strength and clarity to get a divorce. On the third day I
had a break through which allowed me to see that due to traumatic
circumstances in my early childhood I was unable to accept the love of another person. Using
the neural feedback I was able to lift the veil of repressed love and
experience the true love I had for my wife. As the week went on I accomplished more
healing and learned more about myself than I ever imagined. My life is
much better now and my marriage is going in a good direction.

- Dave and Cheri Levenson
I wanted to follow up with you with regards to our son who you saw in
April, 2006 I believe.
His transformation has been nothing short of a miracle. He is still
reading "spiritual books" and his compassion and empathy , after a
slow start have really come into his main personality. He has given
money to a friend's mom for medical problems. He is far more kind and
loving towards us now. He is in a new school which he likes very much
and has a girlfriend too.
Thanks so much for taking our son on. It has been a very steady
consistant progression up since the session with you.
Dave and Cheri Levenson
- I feel changed -- more energetic, optimistic, confident, present, loving, laughing and engaging more effortlessly with others in my life. Being an educator, I know that changes to the neural network are real, so I am hopeful that I can sustain and even exceed the progress I made during the training.
- Jim Kramer
I am writing to let you know how much I enjoyed the Alpha 1 training I recently attended. I quickly realized that I was in for an exhilarating, life changing experience that would helped me accelerate my spiritual growth, and resolve issues of anger and forgiveness that I have struggled with for year. I gained insight into who I am and my true purpose in life.
As the training progressed it became clear to me that I was on an exciting adventure of self-awareness that would help me discover answers to questions both spiritual and worldly, that I had been searching for. Each day the answers would become a little bit clearer, as if a light bulb was being turned brighter and brighter.
By the end of the training I was engulfed with happiness and a feeling of well being, and had become friends with some truly amazing people. I would recommend the training to anyone who wants to gain insights into who they are and what has been keeping them from achieving their goals. They won't be disappointed!

- Hugh Robinson, Belmont, Ma.
This experience is about much more than just neurofeedback. It is about personal transformation. This week of alpha 1 training uncovered deeply held patterns of emotions, thoughts, and beliefs through a process that allowed me to significantly affect their influence on my life. The time in the neurofeedback chamber exploring the music of my own brain waves went hand in hand with the exploration of conscious and unconscious emotions discovered in the pre and post mood scales. Combining the neurofeedback and mood scales was a powerful experience that I am extremely grateful for having had opportunity to explore.

Sometimes you do something on a 'guts feeling' and not using the intellect and/or the rational mind. I heard via a friend of mine that there was something that existed as a training in Alpha Brainwaves and had actually no idea what this was going about! Yes, I knew, we do have brainwaves but what they are doing and what the meaning and impact is of brainwaves on the quality of our lives was totally an unknown area for me.
The word training did sound familiar, very familiar. Actually, as being a Trainer in communication techniques and awareness, I expected a training based on more or less the same of what I already knew and maybe taught by my self during the past few years. And of course, having done several trainings by my self the last 15 years. Next to the fact that I help people with their 'health issues' as well as mentally as physical; being a therapist and healer. So, I was well prepared to this new 'training', I thought!
Well, let me tell you; the Alpha training is an experience you can't compare with whatever you did in your life before. I'm not telling you what you can expect or what you are going to do. Because those are only words written from a perception that is not yours. The Alpha training is an experience; nothing more or less. It is a hand out of how to use your brain in a way you didn't do before because you didn't know how use your brain in another way! And that is what you can learn only by doing. Just like it is impossible to learn to dance the tango from a book it is impossible to explain what the Alpha training is on paper. It is experience, that's all. But an experience which you will learn more about how you are functioning, thinking, reacting, Being and what the role your ego may play in your life than you ever learned before. I wish you good luck with your decisions, choices and your life. Maybe we will meet!
