  • Tell more of KURT SAUER’s story….. Thank you, Bob. And Thank you, Simone Lopes and the Arizona Chapter of the Association for Intelligence Officers for inviting me here to talk with you today. It is indeed an honor and a pleasure to meet with folks who are so vital to our national security! And what more fitting time than the week we mark ten years since the tragedies of September 11th.
  • I’m Lee Gerdes. and I’ve spent a good part of my life looking for answers about why we behave the way we do. Describe: The assault Explain the effects and the aftermath Discuss: What I tried. Nothing work. EEG Neurofeedback came close, but wasn’t fast enough or effective enough, so…What I did … What I learned/discovered… it’s all in the brain…
  • Michelangelo knew: The brain is the master control. It controls everything we think, feel, say and do.
  • WHAT DO WE UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE BRAIN TODAY THAT WE DIDN’T KNOW 10 YEARS AGO?(This is an animated slide – 3 clicks) Click first for MIND: Houston orthopedic trial vs placeboHunger – M&M trial Click second for BODY: The brain controls the autonomic nervous system (Stephen PorgesPolyvagal theory / allostasis model-resilience) Perspiration Salivation Heart rateClick Three for SPIRIT: Connection to self and others
  •  Lee to speak to this
  • Discuss trauma – Brain controls the Autonomic Nervous System Parasympathetic – Sympathetic Fight-or-flight: Types of traumas and behaviors associated with fight-or-flight Freeze: Types of traumas and behaviors associated with freeze How we see this in brainwave patterns.
  • TraumaExplain trauma and its effects… in the womb, at birth, after(Examples, pregnant mother lost her job, abusive relationship, parent is sick or ill…) Basic trauma patterns emerge as the child grows. Trauma patterns impede the ability of a child to develop appropriate connections.
  • LEE: Explain Brainwave Optimization (sound/non-invasive/non-judgmental)
  • LEE
  • LEEDIANNE: Lee, how is Brainwave Optimization different than neurofeedback or other similar technologies that people might try?
  • Growing quickly due to the fact that people are quickly recognizing the power of their brain. They are often taking care into their own hands when traditional methods fail them. 32 million clicks per month on the web for people searching on the word “brain”
  • FROM WHAT I CAN SEE, WE ARE ON THE PRECIPICE OF A NEW FRONTIER IN HUMAN WELLNESS AND BEHAVIOR. THE OPPORTUNITIES ARE AS LIMITLESS AS THE CAPACITY AND POTENTIAL OF THE HUMAN BRAIN. WE HAVEN’T EVEN BEGUN TO SCRATCH THE SURFACE. LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT JUST A FEW OF THE COLLABORATIONS THAT ARE CURRENTLY ACTIVE…Emerging partnerships with traditional medicine: Wake Forest School of Medicine Clinical Trials (what we do is a hard science – measurable) Fond du lac reservation: examines the role of Brainwave Optimization for supporting sobriety among Native Americans attending an outpatient substance abuse treatment center. Kids in poverty-Michigan: Post-traumatic slave syndrome. Soon, we will be providing Brainwave Optimization to a group of middle-school and high-school age youth in a predominantly African-American community Michigan this summer. Collecting before and after measures on academic, emotional, and behavioral variables.
  • WHAT ARE WE DOING WITH THIS KNOWLEDGE?ConstantLearning & Discovery: More than 3 million brainwave patterns.Applying what we learn each day  35,000 clients
  • CLOSE: Allow me to tell the story of Elmer Hess the Third… This is truly a story of discovery, enlightenment and connection to self and others.Elmer has Downs Syndrome. When I was asked if I could help him, I said no. His parents – and others – read my book and knew there was something in my work for their family. When I first met Elmer, he couldn’t speak; he had trouble making eye contact, his facial muscles were sagging and he sometimes drooled. He couldn’t follow simple tasks. His sisters slept with him at night because he was unable to sense when it was time to go to the bathroom.Then, what we did….treats, sweatbandThen, what happened… “thank you, Lee”Today, Elmer is more connected to self. He is able to do tasks. He can help his mother now fold laundry and put away his clothes. He is more connected to his body – regulation of bodily functions. He is more connected to others – delivering meals on wheels. He plays tambourine in the church choir (his father and grandfather are pastors.) My favorite – he picks up a basketball and shoots hoops with his friends and family.NEXT SLIDE IS LAST SLIDE. ENDING. KEEP ON SCREEN DURING Q&A.Connection to self and others --- a better world  
  • I would like to hear your thoughts and questions now, but first I want to point out that we have a few folks in our audience who have experienced Brainwave Optimization. They are here today because they believe in it. RickTansey? Truth Calkins? Can you stand so others might be able to hear about your experience after the presentation? Thank you. Now, I invite your questions.
