Benefits of Meditation And Neurofeedback
Many people experience the following when they first start meditating. They turn off their cell phone, their television, their computer and sit upright with their eyes closed in a quiet room. At this point they are ready to meditate, but they never actually know if they are doing the right thing and sometimes they don’t even know how to start.
Effective meditation practice is associated with several specific patterns of brain waves. This is one reason why neurofeedback is so effective, you can literally teach your brain to take on the right brain wave pattern for the style of meditation you are trying to practice.
The Psychophysiological Principle states “Any experience you have as a living human being, you have only when you have the appropriate underlying pattern of brain waves”
Benefits of Meditation (Zen Meditation) and Neurofeedback
Biocybernaut Alpha Training

Alpha Brain Waves, Meditation, and Neurofeedback
High quality neurofeedback programs focus on increasing Alpha amplitude, at least in the beginning. Biocybernaut has 23 advanced levels of Alpha training beyond the first Alpha One training. It is in Alpha States where people experience immediate, profound, life-transforming benefits of meditation and neurofeedback Training.
Beta Brain Waves, Meditation, and Neurofeedback
Some Neurofeedback programs do promote Beta brain wave Training, mainly to treat ADD and ADHD, but at Biocybernaut we find Beta Training to be unnecessary and in some cases counterproductive. At Biocybernaut we are very successful in using Alpha training with children and adults with ADD and ADHD. Please see our website for further reading on Alpha training as a way to reduce or eliminate ADD and ADHD.
Theta Brain Waves, Meditation, and Neurofeedback
- Sleepy, disorganized Theta waves: Associated with stage 1 & 2 of sleep and general drowsiness.
- Organized waking Theta Waves: Associated with creativity, insight, access to the subconscious, and deep intuition. At Biocybernaut we call these Mystical Theta Waves, and they typically occur in beautiful spindles, just like Alpha spindles only slower in frequency. Edgar Casey, the “Dreaming Saint” would have been producing Theta waves when he was lying down and doing his “seeing” and his very accurate predictions.
We offer Theta Trainings at the Biocybernaut Institute, but they are only available to people who have completed at least our Alpha One Training and have also demonstrated sufficient Theta in their EEG record. If people do not have very much Theta waves in their EEG records after Alpha One, then we often we recommend people go through 2 or 3 Alpha Trainings before their first Theta Training.
