Has all that information about change
and self improvement not gotten you
where you want to be?
Information alone does not lead to
Applied Meditation does.

The Managed Mind Welcomes You!
I approach life’s challenges and adversities as inevitable and necessary developmental events that prompt growth.
Greater peace, resilience, acceptance and, yes, even gratitude towards the people and situations that challenge you are the results of Applied Meditation.
Thoughts and Images Influence
It’s time to do things differently
Most thoughts are unexamined and undermining. An average person has about 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. Of those, 80% are negative and 95% are repetitive thoughts. (National Science Foundation, Nov. 2017)
What’s on your mind? Are your thoughts and the images that accompany them leading you to the outcomes to which you aspire?
Meditation script is the perfect place to envision success as it provides the safe space of the meditation state to prehearse productive responses to life’s developmental challenges and opportunities (stressors).
IF PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT, THEN PERFECT YOUR PRACTICE.
This program goes farther than telling you to “Take a deep breath”. To calm yourself. It incorporates real life issues specific to you and script scenes to practice (make habit) healthy improved responses. This program also uses science and the study of human behavior to create effective lasting reasoning- based problem-solving abilities.

Mrs. McGoy is an excellent listener and motivator. She is thorough and very supportive of my process. She pushes me and praises my progress while working towards the next level. I am now very at peace with the situation. I do not feel the need to avoid the situation and dread of future interactions.
"I think that this meditation technique will help on a daily basis to keep focus and peace."

Why The Brain, Meditation, and Scripting?
In a society where access to information is virtually instantaneous and instructional videos fill your social media feeds, there is certainly an abundance of science-based facts and data regarding the benefits of meditation.
What most meditation programs omit, is it’s efficacy as a means to train the reptilian complex, the brain’s eldest structure, to be peaceful in the midst of life’ inevitable challenges. The Three siblings of the Reptilian complex, that need to be incorporated in reprogramming responses to tension triggering thoughts, emotions and events are the mammalian, emotional or motive brain; the information loving cerebral cortex; and the youngest of the family of brains, the Prefrontal Cortex.
Although it is the youngest, the PFC has the ability to quiet the other brains, organize and execute those best practices that you heard about from the latest inspirational video you have viewed.
We use meditation scripting as a tool to engage and train these 4 brains to respond to business and personal challenges in a manner that is founded in peace, productivity and resilience through process of meditative repetition.
Your stresses have a name, a face, and a place.
You can prepare to meet them all with greater resilience, clarity, creativity and calm.
No matter how affluent, well educated, or successful you are or want to be, life is going to continue to challenge and test you to live your greatest good with the people and in the circumstances that trigger you most.
Personalized meditation scripting is the process I use to assist my clients to meet and gain mastery over life’s inevitable and unavoidable challenges no matter where they show up in your life.
