are Self Formation, Cardiac Energy Transmission (McCraty), Non-Neural Pathway (Oschman), Entropy
(Physics), Morphology, etc. Applications of these facts are practiced in the workshop during the

Participants will learn transformational tools for integrating Qigong and Western bodymind healing
methods. Dr. Mayer has been at the forefront of integrating Qigong with Western Bodymind healing
methods for the last two decades. From Dr Mayer’s experience in the integrative medical clinic which he
co-founded, you’ll see how to integrate Qigong into Western behavioral health care treatment, and you’ll
discover how an integral approach can bring the essence of Qigong into psychotherapy without ever
using a word about Qigong and without doing a Qigong movement. Dr Mayer’s energy psychology
approach will be applied to anxiety, chronic pain, hypertension, etc. You’ll learn how an integration of
Western psychotherapeutic, behavioral healthcare methods and Qigong… a leading-edge energy
psychology… can help to heal a variety of physical and psychological disorders. Case examples from Dr
Mayer’s work in an integrative medical clinic will be used to illustrate how the holistic dimensions of this
method are integrated in practice.

Presentation: Using mind‐wandering to assess the impact of meditation on mindfulness
This talk will examine the relationship between meditation practice and mind-wandering- the tendency for
thoughts to drift away from the ongoing task. I will discuss both intervention studies examining the impact
of meditation training on mind-wandering, and correlational studies investigating the relationship between
mind-wandering and self-report measures of mindfulness.

Many contemplative traditions believe that meditation encourages the development of mindfulness which
entails enhanced awareness of one current state. Although mindfulness questionnaires have been
developed little research to date there are no established behavioral measures of mindfulness. This talk
will describe recent research examining the relationship between meditation practice and mind-
wandering- the tendency for thoughts to drift away from the ongoing task. Several strands of research
will be reviewed including both intervention studies examining the impact of meditation training on mind
wandering, and correlational studies investigating the relationship between mind wandering and self-
report measures of mindfulness.

HEALING STATES ASSOCIATED WITH GAMMA BAND EEG IN PREFRONTAL LOBE
What inner experiences are associated with high amplitudes of high frequency
brainwaves (40 Hz, gamma band) from the prefrontal cortex of the brain, which is
the ajna, or third eye region? How do meditation practices impact the production of this gamma band
and the resulting experience of healing states? A study comparing advanced meditators and
nonmeditators showed that both groups could produce gamma brainwaves from this region, but that
meditators had much greater ease in doing so. In additional to practices such as meditation and qigong,
it is possible that gamma neurofeedback training may help people access or train these states.
