Traditional learning systems are decades behind the times. They were designed for an Industrial Age society to service the needs of an assembly line based technology. We take all of the children of the same age and we put them in the same room, teach them how to do the same things, in the same way, at the same time. This makes them all as identical as possible. Training conformity has been more important than teaching individuality, in a system that was successfully designed to produce assembly line factory workers. However to meet the changing needs of the Information Age, we must shift from teaching conformity to educating individual creativity. Everyone can be assisted in becoming accelerated learners. Learning to focus concentration, reduce stress and tension, access greater creative intelligence, and enhance reading, and memory skills, makes anyone more effective and productive.
The development of AlphaLearning is the result of forty years of research into the connection between peak performance, accelerated learning, and the Alpha Brainwave State. Brainwaves are an electrical measurement of our life force energy. The lowest range of brainwave activity is called the Delta Brainwave State. It goes from comatose states up through ordinary sleep. The Theta state begins with dream sleep, and takes us up through the half-awake state of deep trance. Alpha is the state that begins when we are barely awake and goes up through focused peak performance states. Beta is the state that begins with simple divided attention and goes all the way up through panic, anxiety, confusion, and terror.
In the Alpha State, the conscious mind (the mind of logic and reasoning), and the subconscious mind (the mind of creativity and imagination) work together in harmony. As we focus our concentration in the Alpha Brainwave State, certain neurological pathways in the brain become stimulated, allowing greater electro-chemical connections between our conscious and our subconscious minds. With the filter in the brain (the reticular activating system) open, we have access to far more of our creative intelligence. Everything becomes much easier to learn.
In today’s complex world, we spend a lot of time in the Beta Brainwave State, where our attention is divided when we are thinking about several ideas at the same time. The busier our lives get, the more time we spend in Beta. Sometimes it is appropriate for us to be in the Beta State. There are many occasions in our daily lives: driving on the freeway, caring for children, or meeting an important deadline. Each demands divided or split attention.
There are however, many more occasions that benefit from the focused concentration and undivided intensity of the Alpha Brainwave State. It is the athlete’s peak performance state and the inventor’s creativity. It is the surgeon’s fixation and the stamp collector’s concentration. It is every child’s state of fascination, wonder and awe. Alpha is the state for greatness at any endeavor because only in Alpha can you focus concentration, and thus accomplish whatever we most desire. Beta is a stressful state. The more time we spend feeling anxious, nervous, frightened, or confused, the harder it is on our minds and our bodies.
When we get very stressed, or endangered, we utilize the primitive portion of our brain for our survival. We gain access to strength and speed. This is best known as the fight or flight syndrome. At the same time however, we tend to lose access to the more evolved parts of our brain; and to our intelligence, creativity, and recall. In the Beta State, we can get fast and strong, but also stupid and forgetful.

- focused passion -
Focus brings to bear the power of the conscious mind, and Passion brings to bear the power of the subconscious mind.
When the two minds come together in harmony, something magical happens.
They create a third mind, a higher consciousness.
This is literally a second level of thinking.
