The workshop will discuss using noninvasive brain stimulation to enhance meditation practice. We will focus on two relatively new modalities for brain stimulation: ultrasound and light. Part one will be a demo of how low-intensity ultrasound can accelerate meditation practice. We will run through an ultrasound + meditation protocol so the audience can get a sense of what the total setup looks like. (We call it SEM - sonication enhanced mindfulness). In the second part of the workshop, Jay will introduce another type of brain stimulation system that uses near-infrared light (via low power LEDs) to enhance brain function during meditation. Participants will get a chance to try low-level light stimulation while they meditate and will have an opportunity to discuss their phenomenological experience at the end.
