"NeuroMeditation is a brain-based approach to the practice of meditation. This system is founded on the understanding that each style of meditation has a different impact on the structure and function of the brain. This knowledge can be used to identify which meditation practices are most likely to help you achieve your goals. The concept of NeuroMeditation dates back to the 1960"s when pioneers in the field of neurofeedback began exploring ways to combine EEG biofeedback tools with meditation techniques. Interest in this approach waxed and waned over the years as techniques changed and brain monitoring equipment became more sophisticated. In 2014, Dr. Jeff Tarrant, expanded on this early work by identifying 4 different styles of meditation that could be examined and trained with neurofeedback. This study was published in the book chapter, "Neuromeditation: An Introduction and Overview" in the Handbook of Clinical Qeeg and Neurotherapy. Shortly after this publication, Dr. Jeff began teaching workshops on this technique around the United States, Canada, and Germany. In 2016 he moved from Columbia, MO to Eugene, OR and opened the NeuroMeditation Institute. At that time, it became clear that the ideas and concepts taught in the EEG NeuroMeditation trainings could be translated to practitioners that did not have access to neurofeedback equipment. In 2017, Dr. Jeff published the book, "Meditation Interventions to Rewire the Brain" and expanded the work of the Institute to include a research program, weekly classes, and a professional certification training. The Institute continues to grow with a team of providers stretching across the United States and in 6 other countries."
