2020 Super Brain Summit Returns to Bradley University

Researchers explore the benefits of mindfulness and meditation on the brain.

Posted Mar 12, 2020

Bradley University will host its annual Super Brain Summit once again this year. The Super Brain Summit is a one-day conference showcasing experts in the field of neurocounseling. All proceeds go to a fund for future brain research. 

In a previous Brain Waves article, I explained how my counseling goals changed after learning about neurotherapy and neurocounseling and becoming board certified in neurofeedback. I am still striving for symptom reduction, but my main goal is to assist my clients in emotional and physiological self-regulation. I am able to facilitate those changes through neurotherapy by doing any strategy available to modulate or change the neurons. I teach my clients skills such as diaphragmatic breathing, heart rate variability, skin temperature control, and many other needed biofeedback techniques. Mindfulness and meditation incorporate these key takeaways to allow the individual to tap into their emotional and social intelligence

The theme for the 5th annual Super Brain Summit is “Mindfulness and Meditation,” and it features New York Times best-selling author Dr. Dan Siegel.

Dr. Siegel is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and the founding co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA. He is also the Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute, which focuses on the development of mindsight through teaching insight, empathy, and integration in individuals, families, and communities.

Here is some more information about how to join our revolutionary conference.

Participants can elect to participate in two different ways:

  • Live Streaming
