INTRODUCTION: Attacking Addiction's Weak Points with BrightLife Brain Training
WEEK'S OBJECTIVE – Introduction to BrightLife and the BrightLife targeted model of addiction and recovery.
IN CLASS – We'll explore BrightLife's new targeted model for understanding addiction and its proprietary brain-training process. Your clients will learn about addiction's optimal points of interdiction and discover how to employ customized tools to interrupt the cycles that fuel addiction. We’ll conclude with an overview of the five maladaptive habits of mind that can propagate triggers.
AT HOME – The daily BrightLife exercises will alternate between a calming and rejuvenating guided-relaxation session and a customized set of yoga-based investigations to designed to help your clients learn how and where to short-circuit the cycle of addictive behaviors.
TRIGGERING PATTERN #1: Negativity Bias
WEEK'S OBJECTIVE – Enhanced Gratitude and Positivity
OVERVIEW – For those struggling with addiction, the nervous system’s innate tendency to prioritize negative experiences (perceived as threats) over positive experiences can leave many people overwhelmed and hopeless. This week’s instruction and brain-training exercises are designed to neutralize this tendency.
IN CLASS – Your clients will learn about the functioning and purpose of negativity bias, and will then discover how to put in place our structured brain-training regimen to cultivate gratitude, positivity, and hope to support their deliberate engagement of the recovery process.
AT HOME - This week's daily BrightLife exercises will help your clients to train their nervous systems to seek out the gifts and blessings in daily life, effortlessly and automatically. They'll alternate the yoga-based brain-training exercises with a powerful guided-relaxation practice to rejuvenate body and mind.
TRIGGERING PATTERN #2: Psychological Resistance
WEEK'S OBJECTIVE – Improved Acceptance of Present-moment Experience
OVERVIEW – In the BrightLife program, we use the term psychological resistance to refer to the mental and emotional struggle against our present moment experience—a struggle which can be a source of a near-constant emotional turmoil. This week’s instruction and brain-training exercises are designed to create greater acceptance of that which cannot be changed.
IN CLASS – This week's focus will be dedicated to helping neutralize unhelpful reactions to life's challenges. We'll put in place a brain-training process to re-train the nervous systems to respond with calm and skill—even in the midst of life’s difficulties.
AT HOME – The daily BrightLife exercises will help to train the brain to respond to life's ups and downs with greater ease. Yoga-based brain-training exercises will be alternated with the guided-relaxation practice to calm nerves and soothe emotions. This week will arm your clients with the tools and insight to feel more calm, more often.
TRIGGERING PATTERN #3: Emotional Reactivity
WEEK'S OBJECTIVE – Enhanced Emotional Resilience
OVERVIEW – The addiction-compromised nervous system is often driven into a fragile state where even modest emotional experiences are reacted to in dramatically unhealthy ways. This week’s instruction and brain-training exercises are designed to minimize emotional disturbances while creating greater capacity for them when they do arise.
IN CLASS – Week four is devoted to zeroing in on how to minimize and manage disturbing emotions. Clients will learn how to employ customized brain-training exercises to shift how the mind processes emotional experiences to aid in finding greater balance and ease with impulses and emotions of all kinds.
AT HOME – The daily yoga-based brain-training exercises will help clients experience emotions and impulses in a new light. Focus will be placed on experiencing emotions as raw sensation to minimize their power. Clients will gain skill in observing, feeling, and understanding emotions of all kinds. The brain-training exercises targeting emotional resilience will be alternated with the guided-relaxation sessions to soothe the overstressed nervous system.
TRIGGERING PATTERN #4: Attention Deficit
WEEK'S OBJECTIVE – Elevated Mastery over Thoughts and Attention
OVERVIEW – Unmanaged attention can be a major source of stress and overwhelm that significantly hinders the recovery process. This week’s instruction and brain-training exercises will highlight the habit and consequences of poorly-managed attention and provide customized tools to develop greater mastery over all aspects of mind.
IN CLASS – The deliberate use of focused attention can radically change the trajectory of our lives. This week's brain-training regimen will begin to rein in the unruly mind and train our minds in a way that supports recovery and balance.
AT HOME – The daily exercises will help clients create greater mastery of mind to minimize stress and engender feelings of enhanced calm, clarity, and control. As with every week, clients will alternate between the formal yoga-based brain training exercises and the guided-relaxation practice to calm the nerves and rejuvenate the body.
TRIGGERING PATTERN #5: Victimizing Mindset
WEEK'S OBJECTIVE – Established Growth Mindset
OVERVIEW –The struggles associated with addiction often leave people with a defeated and victimized perspective that views life challenges in an unnecessarily harsh and negative light. This week’s instruction and brain-training exercises are designed to help clients perceive the opportunities for growth that are inherent in daily difficulties and to arm them with the skills needed to utilize them to enhance wellbeing and happiness.
IN CLASS – Learning how to see the opportunities for growth in life's challenges is what week six is all about. This week's brain training will help clients to use life's ups and downs as opportunities for creating more calm and happiness in life.
AT HOME – This week's daily brain-training regimen will help clients uncover the opportunities for growth that usually go wasted and unused. The process engenders enhanced appreciation for day-to-day life and provides tools for transforming any moment into a positive experience. Daily yoga-based brain-training exercises will be performed on alternate days with the rejuvenating guided-relaxation practice.
