As neuro-scientific studies have shown, various meditative states reached due to practise of a particular meditation technique (those that involve focus on an object and those that are objectless) are associated with different electroencephalogram (EEG) spatio-temporal and oscillatory signatures, and such signatures are directly related to the baseline neuropshychological profiles of practitioners. Therefore, if one knows his/hers individual qEEG profile in advance, he or she could choose the meditation/yoga technique which would be most suitable.

In this context, an individual's qEEG profile provides information on the strength and weaknesses of an individual’s brain functioning and cognitive skills, and by doing so, it guides individuals, coaching staff, and trainers to select individualised training protocols which permit people to unlock the full potential of their brains and minds.

KalpaTaru is a company with a long history of meditation and yoga training through a combination of humanistic and scientific traditions in order to promote a humane and sustainable future. KalpaTaru utilises the knowledge obtained through the scientific research of the BM-Science Centre in the fields of cognitive psychophysiology and neuroscience for the purposes of guiding the meditation/yoga programs. The qEEG-guided meditation is a meditation that is tailored to you based on your qEEG profile as determined by the BrainMind Audit® tool.


Screening for a personalized brain baseline

Based on numerous scientific studies in cognitive neuroscience, an innovative, scientifically based qEEG screening tool - BrainMind Audit® was developed that helps to quantify objectively the status of brain and mind.

Measurement of brain and mind functioning is based on the premise that there are distinct states and traits characteristics. State refers to the situational characteristics of qEEG, whereas trait refers to the basic constitutional characteristics of qEEG. This particular BrainMind Audit® tool measures only the trait (long-term) characteristics of qEEG.

The BrainMind Audit® tool provides personalized assessment of key trait factors such as general vigilance level, speed of cognitive processes, positivity/negativity bias, motivation tendency, sociability, anxiety tendency, stress resistance, and level of brain resources. Establishing a personalized brain baseline is the first step to managing behavioural and mental health.

The BrainMind Audit® tool is based on mathematical and statistical processing of digital EEG, which condenses the qEEG data to a single-page color-coded summary - the BrainMind Audit® Profile. The BrainMind Audit® Profile provides the integrated result of the analysis of multiple indices related to brain and mind functioning that are derived from qEEG data from a 19-channel EEG recording with a standard International 10-20 electrode placement system. The BrainMind Audit® Profile consists of 9 evaluation metrics that provide an easy to understand quantitative values for otherwise complicated neurophysiological constructs.


Monitoring meditation effectiveness

Establishing a brain baseline allows for individuals to act as their own controls in measuring the efficacy of personalized meditation training and outcomes. The BrainMind Audit® tool offers an objective "before and after" evaluation of meditation training efficacy. Regular monitoring is important for promoting meditation training adherence and demonstrating meditation training outcomes.
