There is no end to your existence. The Death Transition is a book that answers questions on pre-death and after-death experiences. It describes step-by-step experiences which will be encountered by an individual upon death. A book for readers who are curious about the destiny of their existence after physical death.

Your Brain is a River Not a Rock by Dr Fred Travis

In his recently published book, Your Brain is a River Not a Rock, Dr Travis details the whole truth of brain development throughout life, the possibility of culturing your full mental potential, and the reality of living in higher states of consciousness.

In the Preface of his book, Dr Travis writes:
“The brain is the interface between us and our world. We see the world; we make meaning of our experience; we respond to the world through brain functioning. And the brain is not set in stone. The circuits in the brain are continuously sculpted by experience….’Your Brain is a River, not a Rock’ gives you the information to choose experiences that will support greater growth and success.”

Dr. Fred Travis received his Masters and PhD in Psychology from Maharishi University of Management in 1988. He had a two-year post-doctoral position at UC Davis and the VA Medical Center in Martinez, CA with Dr. Irwin Feinberg exploring brain changes during sleep. At the conclusion of his post-doctoral position in 1990, he returned to Maharishi University of Management to direct research at the Center for Brain, Consciousness and Cognition.

Since 1990, he has authored 57 papers and conference presentations that investigate the relation between brain patterns, conscious processes, states of consciousness and meditation practice. His recent work has reported brain patterns of world class performers—athletes who have received gold medals in World Games, National Game or the Olympics; top-level managers; and professional musicians. He regularly teaches undergraduate and graduate courses, gives seminars, and speaks at conferences on brain development in children and across the lifespan.

Brain Plasticity and Transcendental Meditation with Dr Fred Travis

Dr Fred Travis explains what happens to the brain when someone practices the Transcendental Meditation technique.

All experiences changes the brain and nothing changes the brain like transcending.

Fred Travis: Mr Lynch and Dr Hagelin gave a very compelling image of a Unified Field at the basis of our thought, at the basis of our behavior and these compelling images have concrete reality in the functioning of our brain. The quality of the functioning of your brain determines the quality of the functioning of your mind.

If you want a creative mind you need a creative brain. If you want a calm and alert mind you need a restful and alert brain. This relationship goes the other way as well – the brain not only generates experience but also each experience we have changes the brain.

Every time you see something, you hear something the words now going into your ears are creating this cascade of electrical activity in your brain. Individual neuron by individual neuron is sending the information and you have as if these connecting hands, we have this delicate network over your brain and that’s what lets you see. That’s what lets you decide and every time you have an experience that network gets a little stronger.

Your brain is a RIVER it’s not a ROCK. Indeed 70% of your brain cells change every day. What we have here is an example of 2 dendrites. Dendrites are where one cell takes in information and these little bumps that you see are called dendritic spines, this is where one neuron is communicating with this neuron. You have 100 billion neurons in your brain, each one get input from about 10,000 other neurons every second. You could imagine getting 10,000 phone calls every second and trying to integrate it together into one coherent output.

One of the most research ways to improve holistic brain function is through practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique.
