WIRED for WELLBEING?
Isn't all "meditation" the same?
You've probably heard that training your mind through meditation can rewire your brain to promote all-around wellbeing.
But what you may not know is that, just like exercise, different meditation practices, such as mindfulness, produce different results.
And if you’re short on time, doesn’t it just make sense to choose the kind of mind training or meditation that delivers the greatest return on investment? Choose Compassion Training now (includes "mindfulness" training)
What if you simply don’t have the time to travel to receive evidence-based mind training from certified professionals?
That's where we come in!
Living Heart+Mind is the world’s first online platform that delivers to you where and when you need it, live, online CBCT® (Cognitively-Based Compassion Training). Developed at Emory University, CBCT, which includes “mindfulness training” helps you to harness the power of neuroplasticity to WIRE for WELLBEING, from the comfort of your own home.

You see, CBCT® is a systematic, comprehensive, evidence-based approach for gradually training the mind in compassion.
The neuroscience shows that training in compassion can reduce mind-wandering and rumination - both of which have been tied to stress and anxiety. Compassion training can also increase your ability for self-compassion, gratitude, empathy, and of course, compassion, all of which can act as buffers against negative mental states/emotions. Studies have also shown that CBCT® (Cognitively-Based Compassion Training) can strengthen your immune system and pave the way for stronger relationships.
What do we mean by "WELLBEING?"
Though many possible answers exist, we embrace what has been called the 4 Components of Wellbeing, by neuroscientist, Richard Davidson (the founder for the Center for Healthy Minds) and scientist Brianna Schuyler.
CBCT® and WELLBEING
In fact, we at Living Heart+Mind are confident that CBCT ® (Cognitively-Based Compassion Training) cultivates and strengthens what neuroscientist Richard Davidson, the founder of the Center for Healthy Minds , and Scientist Brianna Schuyler have identified in their 2015 contribution to the World Happiness Report, in Chapter 5: The Science of Happiness, as the 4 Components of Wellbeing: (1) Reduced Mind Wandering (mindfulness) - (2) the Ability to Rebound from negative emotions (associated with resilience) - (3)Positive Outlook & (4) Caring for others (compassion).
We appreciate using a fruit tree as a metaphor for envisioning the 6 Modules of CBCT, and the key parts within, how they are interconnected and are interdependent with each other, and thus, how each module informs and empowers the others. In this way, they represent a living system of sorts, whose fruit is compassion.
As is obvious below, CBCT® (Cognitively-Based Compassion Training) does cultivate and strengthen wellbeing, as frame by the 4 Components of Wellbeing described above.
You'll be guided by a Certified CBCT® instructor
Finally, you'll be guided by a Certified CBCT® instructor. John Lykurgus Wade, co-founder of Living Heart+Mind, and a military veteran of nearly 15 years of active-duty service of both the U.S. Army and Navy, intimately understands the challenges of moving through life when wellbeing is eroded. After many years of intense study and practice guided by generous teachers and mentors, and supported by his loving wife Roxy, and their family, John overcame alcoholism, incarceration, and severe PTSD, and now, along with his wife Roxy (who is also a Certified CBCT® instructor) devotes his life to helping others flourish with greater courage, kindness, and compassion.
John and Roxy both received training from the developer of CBCT® (Cognitively-Based Compassion Training). Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi, PhD, or Dr. Negi, is the co-founder and Director of the Emory-Tibet Partnership, and is a Professor of Practice in Emory University's Department of Religion. Dr. Negi developed CBCT®, a compassion meditation program based on Tibetan contemplative methods and taught as both a research protocol and to the public for personal enrichment.
In addition, research is currently being conducted at Emory and other universities to examine the benefits of CBCT® for a variety of populations including medical students, nurses, cancer survivors, veterans with PTSD, HIV+ individuals, school children, and parents of autistic children (CBCT® and healthcare).
So let's review the facts
Living Heart+Mind is the world's first (and still only) online platform that delivers to you, where and when you need it, live CBCT® (Cognitively-Based Compassion Training), from Certified CBCT® instructors.
Additionally, we're confident that CBCT® cultivates & strengthens the 4 Components of Wellbeing, all of which empower you to live healthier, happier lives, while also deepening your ability to care for others, while also reducing the the dangers of becoming overwhelmed or "burned out.
(1) Why would you NOT want to WIRE for WELLBEING?
(Hopefully by now these questions aren't necessary, but let's go ahead and ask)
- Would more mental focus and clarity, coupled with serenity help?
- Would letting go of old, unhelpful mental habits (anger, frustration, anxiety, clinging, etc.) help?
- Would feeling more connected with friends, family members, and even "strangers" through compassion training enhance your life? (secret: we already know it enhances your immune system)
- Would being able to engage acts of compassion, whether at work or home, without falling prey to "burnout," or "compassion fatigue" be helpful?
- Would compassion training help your children (in particular - "at-risk-children") cultivate prosocial skills that buffer against the inevitable stress, uncertainty, and challenges they face (secret: the answer is YES!)
- Would it be helpful to wire the brain (benefitting from neuroplasticity & neurogenesis) to promote wellbeing, compassion, and happiness (we hope you're seeing a pattern here)?
Do you want to wire for wellbeing so that you have less stress and a stronger immune system that can act as a buffer against the development of a host of chronic, stress-related illnesses, including depression, heart disease, and diabetes?
(2) WHEN do you want to begin?
If you’re ready to take charge of your life, to live with greater wellbeing, stronger relationships, and the ability to care for others, while also reducing the risk of “ burnout.”
