Virtual Workshop

About the event

The mission of Calm Clarity is to use neuroscience to develop the leadership capacity of human beings to co-create a world where every person thrives.  We have supported thousands of people from diverse ages and backgrounds to rewire their brain to experience greater wisdom, fulfillment, and joy since our first programs in 2013 for inner-city high school students. Learn more about us and our non-profit work here.

We invite you to experience the Calm Clarity Foundation Program as a four-part workshop series:

  • Session 1: Wednesday October 9 from 7pm to 9pm ET
  • Session 2: Wednesday October 16 from 7pm to 9pm ET
  • Session 3: Wednesday October 23 from 7pm to 9pm ET
  • Session 4: Wednesday October 30 from 7pm to 9pm ET

PROGRAM SUMMARY

This Foundation Program provides you with a "user manual" for understanding and rewiring your brain that enriches your life.  These 4 sessions guide you to build the neural systems for alignment and wholeness, and thereby deepen your capacity to experience wisdom, fulfillment, joy, and many other qualities that enable you to rise to challenges, build meaningful relationships, and positively impact your communities.

Alignment and wholeness means living in a state in which you feel centered and grounded, embody your values, access your inner wisdom and compassion, and harness your talents, skills, and energies to be the fullest expression of yourself.

When we as human beings don’t feel aligned and whole, the feeling of “not being enough” can prompt us to mindlessly speak, think, and act from a place of insufficiency, insecurity, unworthiness, and scarcity. We can get stuck in negative patterns and inadvertently spread these limiting patterns to the people around us at work and at home.

DETAILED PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This interactive, experiential leadership program combines neuroscience, mindfulness, and leadership development to strengthen the 4 neural systems that enable you to bring yourself into a state of alignment and wholeness. This is a critical leadership capacity because being aligned and whole enhances your capacity to be open, attuned, responsive, resourceful, resilient, curious, insightful, creative, innovative, collaborative, inclusive, and inspiring.

--SESSION 1: October 9--

 

Your Brain Patterns

We begin with a series of exercises to build your awareness of how you move between three patterns of brain activation:

  • Brain 1.0: Your threat system is on high-alert. You feel fearful, unsafe, powerless, and isolated. Over time, you lose hope and fall into despair.
  • Brain 2.0: Your dopamine system suppresses Brain 1.0 by chasing immediate gratification, money, status, or a false sense of comfort and control.
  • Brain 3.0: Your prefrontal cortex is able to calm and integrate Brain 1.0 and Brain 2.0 so you can experience alignment and wholeness, bring the best version of you to the world, embody your core values and aspirations, and create positive impact. The stronger your Brain 3.0, the more you experience and share wisdom, fulfillment, and joy. 

These exercises enable you to recognize the situations that activate these patterns in your everyday life and discern how you show up and interact differently when you are in Brain 1.0, Brain 2.0, and Brain 3.0.  

4 Key Neural Systems of Brain 3.0

You will be guided to build Brain 3.0 by activating and strengthening four key neural systems that enable you to live and lead in alignment and wholeness. You will start this journey by assessing how strongly developed your four neural systems are at this moment in your life.  

--SESSION 2: October 16--

Your Resilience System and Triggers

  • You will become acquainted with your Resilience System, which contains the networks for stress regulation and recovery. Resilience is tied to having the interoceptive awareness to notice when you are outside your "Brain 3.0 window," and taking steps to restore your capacity for Brain 3.0.
  • You will develop interoceptive awareness by learning the signals from your body that let you know when Brain 1.0. Brain 2.0 and Brain 3.0 are activated and practice an exercise to enhance your ability to notice these signals.
  • You will become aware of and learn to manage triggers in your everyday life that activate your Brain 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0.

Your Connection System

  • You will become acquainted with your Connection System, which contains the networks for compassion and empathy, and is intertwined with the networks for joy, meaning, and inspiration.
  • You will be guided to strengthen your Connection System using a compassion meditation practice and experience the effects of turning on your "tend-and-befriend" system, which boosts your body's capacity to buffer stress and rise to challenges.
  • You will also tend and befriend yourself and integrate the many parts within you. 

--SESSION 3: October 23--

Your Attention System

  • You will become acquainted with your Attention System, which contains the networks for attention, focus, and concentration.
  • You will experience how your Attention System is tied to your ability to notice when your default mode network (DMN, also known as your internal narrator) diverts your attention, and to redirect your attention to the task you intended to focus on.
  • You will be guided to strengthen your Attention System using a focused attention meditation practice.

Your Meta-Awareness System

  • You will become acquainted with your Meta-Awareness System, which contains the networks for being aware of your "sense of self," and your stories, patterns, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.
  • You will become aware of how your brain creates associations when neurons fire and wire together, and how your thoughts represent neural pathways being triggered through associative activation cascades.
  • You will be guided to strengthen your Meta-Awareness system using a meta-awareness meditation practice and a worksheet exercise to discern patterns for what your Brain 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 "say" in various situations.

--SESSION 4: October 30--

Part III. Application and Integration

In this final section of the program, you will be guided to apply and integrate what you learned into your everyday life.

  • You will also be introduced to a self-assessment tool that enables you to monitor how activated Brain 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 are in your everyday life over a 6-month period of time.
  • You will use the self-assessment tool to create a pie chart for how much energy you are generating and transmitting in Brain 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0. Then you will draw your ideal pie chart for optimizing your effectiveness and sustainability, and reflect on what will help you move towards your ideal pie chart.
  • You will create a daily routine to activate and strengthen Brain 3.0.

Bonus: Membership in the Calm Clarity Alumni Community

Upon completion of this program, you will be welcomed into our Virtual Alumni Community via Mighty Networks. This will give you exclusive access to an Alumni Toolkit and Virtual Alumni Events to deepen your ability to integrate Brain 3.0 into your life. You can also take advantage of the Alumni Refresher Program to retake any virtual Foundation Workshop for $50. Each time you re-experience the program, you further the firing and wiring of Brain 3.0 to create new neural pathways that deepen your insights. 

Recording and Hand-outs

This workshop will be recorded so participants can review the video. All participants will receive a PDF of the slide deck and be invited to a private space in the Calm Clarity Mighty Networks Platform where you can access the video.
