Alpha Theta Meditation (ATM) is a program of intensive study in advanced methods of controlled relaxation, biofeedback training and meditation. Meditation is a mental process by which one learns to get in touch with the higher centers of one's brain. Thus, one is able to utilize more brain/mind potential.
A MENTAL TOOL FOR ACHIEVING PEACE, RELAXATION AND CREATIVITY
Many of us function at only one level of consciousness--our normal waking consciousness or rational consciousness--the Beta state. Yet there are many other potential forms of consciousness available to us that are entirely different. These highly creative and introspective states of consciousness--Alpha and Theta--must not be disregarded. It seems that stress and tension pull us away from these creative levels and thus few of us ever experience them. Artists, musicians and writers are more aware of altered states of consciousness because it is at these levels that they are most creative and productive.
Alpha Theta Meditation was developed in the early 1970's by Rev. James A. Gattuso, Jr. The program was originally offered through the Akron Unity Center of Truth, and then through the New Life Center of Philosophy Church and Education Society. From there it gained popularity in spirit/mind/body centers across the U.S. and beyond. Alpha Theta Meditation has helped thousands of people in the years since its inception.
ATM takes the ancient art of meditation and makes it easy to practice in today's world, in such a way that you know you are getting results--through biofeedback. Biofeedback training makes it possible for a student to be sure that he or she is reaching these altered states quickly and efficiently.
Biofeedback is the process of using an instrument or device to give us instant information about our bodies. This is usually information we are not normally aware of, such as brain activity, heart rate, breath and body tension. This biofeedback can be used to guide your total meditation experience.
Real-time brainwave feedback through the use of an electroencephalogram (EEG) teaches the art of focus. Tune into your heart rate to help take you deeper. Learn how to use your breath to find calm and overcome stress. Discover how your posture can bring you physical relaxation. This type of feedback training is invaluable to people who find it difficult to relax due to constant stress and tension.
Meditation has been shown to:
There are easily one hundred benefits known!
Scientific experiments reveal that the deep alpha level is a specific altered state of consciousness that is characterized by expanded introspective awareness, deep tranquility and creativity.
Many respected scientists who are studying parapsychology believe that psychic powers and extra-sensory perception occur at these deeper levels of consciousness, notably the alpha state. We often experience psychic perception only briefly because our mind shifts too rapidly from one level of consciousness to another. Our minds are capable of so much more than we know! Meditation is the psychic bridge to your inner mind.
Meditation has its roots in all forms of religion, and has since the beginning of time.
"Be still and know I am God."
Meditation takes us to that point of stillness where we can hear Truth, feel Love, and Understand all we need to understand in the present moment. Meditation teaches us to Live in the Now.
No religion is needed.
Religion is optional and personal.
Meditation is an interspiritual experience.
Meditation touches the Spirit of All!
Essentials of Life Holistic Enrichment Center is very pleased to present this renewed version of Alpha Theta Meditation to you. We are an interspiritual church.
We present this program to you in the memory of Rev. James A. Gattuso, Jr.
It was his wish that we carry it on.
There will be a special presentation on Sunday, July 25, 2021, at a Memorial Luncheon in honor of his 70th birthday. Specific details forthcoming!
"Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you."
Rev. Dr. Jody Evans is the founding minister of Essentials of Life Holistic Enrichment Center and also a doctor of traditional naturopathy. Jody was Jim Gattuso's program assistant when he first began ATM in the early 1970's. He remained in a mentor role to her throughout the years from that time forward. The two of them worked together in the latter years of his life to reintroduce the Alpha Theta Meditation program to you.
The renewed ATM program will continue in the same tradition as when it originated. You will experience several different forms of meditation and learn ways of deepening the experience, utilizing various tools and techniques. Through the use of biofeedback, we can hone in on what works best for you.
