I am the child of a concert pianist and Navy Seal. I pursued jazz sax through childhood, then, as a young man, Architecture & the Arts. This formal education led to early career adventures in feature film production. I prefer simple things and value frugality over thoughtless consumption. Since age 10 I have pursued intensive mind-body training and deep inquiry into the human condition. Please contact via phone only. Text preferred. Visit a project site.
Without strong focus there is no way to achieve excellence. Really. It's just that simple.
There are two regions in the brain responsible for our ability to maintain focus. One brain region is associated with concentration. We all know about concentration. No biggie right? Most traditional meditation methods work to improve our capacity to hold our mind on one point or object. Another region supports the ability to ignore the irrelevant. These regions are similar in location and composition, but support wholly different aspects of focus. Ignoring usually plays a lessor, or complimentary, role to the primary directive to concentrate.
The science is clear, meditation works. Anxiety, fear and loathing are managed by a specific part of the brain called the left prefrontal neocortex. You can train your brain and improve stress response with meditation.
