Dr. Joel & Michelle Levey

We have been fortunate to live and work on the "mind fitness frontier" for the past 35 years, studying closely with many of the most respected and revered mind science researchers and teachers of our times.

We have dedicated our lives to this exploration and have been fortunate to engage in clinical and laboratory research on extra-ordinary human performance, and to direct clinical programs for leading medical centers. We’ve been honored to design and facilitate advanced “biocybernautic training” for the U.S. Army’s once secret Jedi Warrior training program, and to participate in a year-long silent contemplative retreat.  We serve as clinical faculty for the University of Minnesota Medical School at the Center for Spirituality and Health, and as adjunct faculty for the Institute for Religion and Health at University of Texas Medical Center.

Our Mind Fitness programs have inspired thousands of people in hundreds of leading organizations around the globe!


“The greatest thing in all education

is to make the nervous system

our ally instead of our enemy.”
William James

These complex and turbulent times stretch us all to increase our capacity to live and work within an environment of escalating intensity and uncertainty, while building our change resilience, deepening our wisdom, and maintaining optimum health.

Research from both modern cognitive and neuro-science, and insights from the great wisdom traditions of our world offer inspiring evidence that by understanding and refining our minds we enhance the functioning of our brains, our physical health, relationships, and the wisdom, compassion, creativity, and intuition that we bring to our lives and work in the world.

Recent research on neuroplasticity demonstrates that as we train our minds, we change and improve the workings and structure of our brains. What we value and care about, we attend to, and the force of our attention literally sculpts and shapes the circuitry of our brains.

“Here is the very heart and soul of the matter of leadership:

If you seek to lead, invest 50% of your time (attention)

leading yourself:

your own purpose, ethics, principles, motivation, conduct.

...Lead yourself, lead your superiors, lead your peers, and free your people

to do the same. 

All else is trivial.”

Dee Hock,

Founder and CEO Emeritus Visa International

“And in all of my experience,

I’ve never seen lasting solutions to problems, lasting happiness and success,

that came from the outside in.”

Stephen Covey

“A human being is part of the whole

called by us 'universe,' a part limited in time and space.  He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest ~

a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures

and the whole of nature in its beauty. . . .

We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humankind is to survive.”

Albert Einstein

"To know how to wonder and question

is the first step of the mind

toward discovery."

Louis Pasteur

Can you imagine how different your life would be

if you understood and mastered your mind?

Have you ever wondered what the true nature,

power,and potentials of your mind are

Jon Kabat-Zinn, a pioneer in bringing Mindfulness Based training into mainstream business and medicine regarding the Leveys’ teachings:

“Joel and Michelle Levey have skillfully woven together contemporary insights into the value and need for

mind-fitness and meditation practices with a large number of evocative suggestions for practice.  Joel and Michelle clearly have a great deal of experience teaching a wide range of different settings

and this is reflected in the precision and vividness

of their instructions.  T

here is strength in the simplicity of their explanation of the value of these practices and their clear instructions

for how to practice..”
