  15. 15. What is happening? ● When we reach ectasis the inner critic goes silent ● We go from competition to creative mode ● Risk taking goes up ● Creativity goes up and is very useful for solving problems
  16. 16. What is happening to our bodies during ecstasis?
  17. 17. What is happening in the brain? ● Activity in the prefrontal cortex slows, the part of the brain that houses the higher cognitive functions starts to decrease. It is an efficiency exchange. The brain is trading extra energy to help you focus in the moment on other functions. ● This is where our sense of self is contained and as this part slows down, so does the connection to self and increase the connection to other things ● Same with the sense of time...we step into a timeless moment...and intense present moment and past, and future get deflated and you can only think about what is going on in that very moment. ● Most anxiety most fear is not present moment fear. Its past and future. ● Anxiety goes down. Performance goes up and so does our ability to process data, get more clear on direction and decisions. Steven Kotler, author of Stealing Fire
  18. 18. What is happening in the brain? ● Next you get a sense of effortlessness. This comes from a flood of performance enhancing feel good neurochemicals being released. Stress hormones get removed from our system at these states. Then we get a huge boost in motivation. It feels like we are being propelled from a force that is bigger than us. This creates purpose, meaning and motivation. information in the brain is massively heightened. ● The brain takes in more information per second. Our ability to pay attention to that info increases. Pattern recognition increases. And lateral thinking increases and creativity. ● 400% heightened creativity and 500% heightened productivity Steven Kotler, author of Stealing Fire

  20. 20. Heightened Form of Intense Unity ● The most common spiritual/mystical experience. ● This decodes most all spiritual/mystical experiences and what is happening in the brain. ● Ex.

  27. 27. Jason Silva says “ Really what I found in altered states was freedom first they gave me freedom from myself; then they gave me freedom to express myself, then they showed me what was actually possible. But it's not just me. I think almost every successful person I have met - one way or another - has found a way to use these states to propel them to levels they didn't know were possible.” Stealing Fire

  36. 36. Dopamine ● When Dopamine is low….so is motivation. ● Dopamine motivates you to take action toward your goals and gives you a surge of reinforcing pleasure when achieving them. ● Procrastination, self-doubt and lack of enthusiasm are linked with low levels of dopamine.
  37. 37. Ways to Increase Dopamine ● Listen to music ● Break down big goals into little pieces ● Rather than allowing your brain to celebrate only when you’ve hit the big finish line, you can create a series of little finish lines for frequent dopamine release. ● It’s crucial to actually celebrate ● Reward yourself

  39. 39. Ways to Release Oxytocin ● Sharing a meal with someone ● Telling people you love them ● Bonding ● Touch...aim for 8 6-second hugs a day ● Interpersonal touch not only raises oxytocin, but also reduces cardiovascular stress and improves the immune system.

  41. 41. Serotonin ● Serotonin flows when you feel significant or important. ● Loneliness and depression are present when serotonin is absent. ● Unhealthy attention-seeking ● Most antidepressants focus on the production of serotonin.
  42. 42. Ways to Increase Serotonin ● Think back on a past achievement that you are proud of. ● Your brain has trouble telling the difference between what is real and what is imagined, so it produces serotonin in both cases ● Gratitude practices are popular for this reason. ● Spend time with healthy/constructive people you enjoy being around. ● Expose yourself to the sun for 20 minutes. Your skin absorbs ultraviolet rays, which promotes Vitamin D and serotonin production.
  43. 43. Serotonin Exercise

  61. 61. What are your biggest takeaways from DNX Festival? How can you use ecstasis to accomplish these goals?
  62. 62. “When we are reliably able to make this ‘shift’ (to ecstasis) you start ….constructing a world that is much more friendly to contradiction, to oppositeness, to being able to hold onto multiple systems of thinking….By stepping outside ourselves we gain perspective. We become objectively aware of our coutumes rather than subjectively fused with them. We realize we can take them off, discard those that are worn out or no longer fit, and even create new ones. That's the paradox of selflessness -- by periodically losing our minds we stand a better chance at finding ourselves.” Stealing Fire
