Research shows that the human brain can change and grow at any age. A unique combination of biofeedback and exercises in visual art will awaken your dormant creativity. By becoming conscious of usually unconscious brain states, you will regain mastery over many aspects of your life.

Through exercises, body movement, and guided experiences in visual art, you can enhance creative pathways in your brain. The biofeedback you experience in the workshop will teach you how to find creative solutions to problems that confront you at home and at work.

You will learn…

  • how different brain states feel and how to move into the magical states known as Flow
  • to paint directly from this numinous center of the brain
  • dyadic exercises that test this process on problems in your own life
  • about the latest research and breakthrough findings in brain science that demonstrate the neuroplastic nature of the brain 

Sloat will provide workshop participants with FREE hands-on experience of the HeartMath emWave monitors to help become aware of the Heart-Brain connection. 20% discount offered on em-wave monitor for workshop participants.

We call this state coherence. Through coherence techniques, interactive exercises and game play, the emWave Technologies help you bring your heart and mind into a coherent state, building resilience, increasing energy, maximizing creativity and innovation, and promoting focus, mental clarity and emotional balance.
