Live webinar from Transparent: Brainwave Entrainment – Putting Research into Action

Webinar(8/8 UPDATE- we’re now offering bundle discounts on our software and the webinar registration combined! See the end of this post for details.)

We’re very excited to announce that for the first time, Transparent will be hosting a web-based workshop, “Brainwave Entrainment: Putting Research into Action.”

We’ve heard from many of you that you’re looking for more in-depth information and training to best integrate brainwave entrainment and our technology into professional practice with clients, or just to get the most out of your personal use of BWE. We’ve been fortunate to be able to team up with an excellent instructor to lead a workshop with exactly that goal.

The 4 day, 12 hour program will be led by Ed Mackey PhD, MSN, CRNA, FAPA. He is the founder and current director of The Mind/Body Institute of Applied Psychophysiology at West Chester University of Pennsylvania where he currently teaches in the College of Health Sciences. Dr. Mackey additionally maintains a private practice in neurofeedback, biofeedback and hypnosis.

Also teaching and available for Q&A will be Adam Hewett, creator of the software and co-founder of Transparent, and Joe Verona, General Manager and technical guru for the BWE community.

The essential details:

When: September 23-26 (Mon-Tue-Wed-Thu, 6-9 pm EST)

Where: Online! You can attend this course from a computer anywhere in the world. Further details will be provided to registrants in advance of the course.

Cost: $295

Register at:

Topics covered will include:

  • An overview of the science behind brainwave entrainment
  • A guided tour through the significance and practical applications of many studies on BWE
  • A look at aspects of neuroanatomy essential to a full understanding of BWE
  • Live demonstrations of basic and intermediate session construction and operation of our Mind WorkStation software
  • The use of BWE in professional practice with clients; legal considerations, paperwork and best practices for client interaction with respect to BWE
  • A basic introduction to the use of EEG devices with our software


Benefits of attending:

Q&A: We will include plenty of time for all participants to ask questions- both of Dr. Mackey and of Adam and Joe.

Completion Certificate: All participants will receive proof of workshop completion.

Prerequisite Completion: Completion of this workshop may be a prerequisite for more advanced workshops we plan to hold in the future. Registrants for this workshop will receive a discount on future workshops, and the ultimate goal is that this series of workshops will culminate in a certification in brainwave entrainment for those who complete the course.

Free Video Copy: You’ll get free access to a video copy of the entire workshop to revisit sections you’d like to review, and for your future reference.

Theta Brain Waves – Infographic Series Part 5 of 5

Theta brain waves (3-8hz) have been connected via extensive study to many different phenomena in the brain. Research on subjects as diverse as memory, emotion, neural plasticity, sleep, meditation and hypnosis have all drawn links to theta activity. A theta state is associated with stage 1 sleep- very light sleep from which subjects can easily be awoken.

A look at theta brings us to the end of our infographic series, and our wave by wave investigation of the tremendous depth of research conducted in this field over the past 80+ years. In the theta infographic, we’re visually breaking down some of the significant research on hypnotic induction, reduced anxiety, and zen meditation.
