Encore Stealing Fire: harness rare states of consciousness to solve critical challenges and outperform the competition
Steven Kotler's 20yrs of work training individuals and organizations in the use of flow—a non-ordinary state of consciousness with a long track record of improving performance- he discovered that these same people had been regularly utilizing a far wider range of altered states to help them heal trauma, boost creativity, augment collaboration, and tap into a level of insight and inspiration unachievable any other way. They couldn’t resist the opportunity to fully explore it for the first time and to open-source our findings so all can share in the benefits. Developments in four fields—psychology, neurobiology, pharmacology, technology—have helped us decode this phenomenon with science. As a result, people are gaining access to an unheard-of level of mental and physical performance. Studies show that altered states boost motivation and creativity nearly 400 percent, while cutting learning times in half. This proven revolution in human possibility will impact and improve all lives.

Encore How to live a confident and vital life! 90 sec to overcome negative emotions
In our talk today, we explore the link between confidence and dealing with negative emotions to live a full and vital life. The idea for Emotional Mastery™ emerged out of Dr Joan Rosenberg's personal and professional desires to understand what makes people do the things they do – a question that dates back to her childhood days, watching and wondering why people treat each other in harsh and unpleasant ways. Out of her psychological work with women over the last 20yrs, Dr Joan began developing the foundational ideas for Emotional Mastery™. Three decades, tens of thousands of hours of clinical practice and the past ten years of neuroscience research have been distilled into an approach that radically changes people’s lives. Neuroscience concepts explain why this approach to change works. Now, Emotional Mastery™ can help you live a confident and vital life!
