QYP 26: DR. JEFF TARRANT ON NEUROMEDITATION
Dr. Jeff Tarrant, founder of the Neuromeditation Institute
NeuroMeditation was developed by Jeff Tarrant, Ph.D., through the exploration of meditation practices in a variety of educational, research, and clinical settings. He discovered that various meditation approaches were associated with specific brain regions, brainwave patterns, and states of consciousness. The NeuroMeditation Institute (NMI) was established in 2016 to advance this work and share this knowledge. The Mission of NMI is to further education, research, and service based on the practice of meditation from a scientific perspective. We provide classes, training, mentoring, and clinical service in the theory, process and methods of NeuroMeditation. We conduct research projects with partners across the United States, including StoryUp VR and the Center for Pranic Healing.
The NeuroMeditation Institute examines meditation in a very practical way. How can we use meditation to help us function more effectively? To address mental health issues? To achieve our goals? Since various meditation practices effect the brain and nervous system quite differently, we can now identify which practices are better suited for specific needs or mental health concerns. We believe that matching meditation styles in this way makes the practices more accessible and easier to learn.
