The Mind Fitness Frontier
Joel & Michelle Levey
Wisdom At Work
"To know how to wonder and question
is the first step of the mind
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 maintaining optimum health, well-being, and success, building our change resilience, and deepening our wisdom. Research from both modern cognitive and neuroscience and insights 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 and compassion that we bring to our lives and work in the world.
|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 researchers and teachers of our times, and integrating our insights into our work in medicine, business, sports, education, military, cognitive and contemplative mind-science.|
We are currently developing this Mind Fitness portion of our Wisdom At Work website with the intention
of offering a variety of articles, resources, and training opportunities for the global communities that
we serve. Our initial offerings are posted below and we invite you to return here often for on-going inspiration.
Can you imagine how different your life would be
if you understood and mastered your mind?
Have you ever wondered what the true power
and potentials of your mind is
and how to develop that?
If such mastery and mystery are of interest to you,
then the next frontier of your personal and professional development
may be mind-fitness training.
Quietly in dozens of the world’s most respected and advanced laboratories, universities, military academies,
sports arenas, and high-tech workplaces a revolution in mind-science research and training is emerging.
Inspired by the rapidly expanding body of empirical evidence from breakthroughs in the neuro-sciences, cognitive sciences,
and advanced human performance training, there is growing confirmation that the treasury of mind-fitness disciplines can dramatically
improve the workings of our brains, our health, and the quality of our lives, work, and world.
"Without a global revolution in the sphere of human consciousness,
nothing will change for the better in the sphere of our being as humans, and the catastrophe
towards which this world is headed - be it ecological, social, demographic or a general breakdown of
civilization - will be unavoidable. . .The salvation of this human world lies nowhere else
than in the human heart, in the human power to reflect,
in human meekness and in human responsibility."
Vaclav Havel, President of Czech Republic addressing the US Congress
