Venture Capital has a reputation of being cutthroat, dog-eat-dog, and all about the money. Not only is that changing these days, there are now investors in this space especially interested in creating positive change.

This week we'll be doing a special design-and-brainstorm workshop with Nichol Bradford, co-founder of the TransTech Lab, TransTech conference and Finder's Course. This is hands-on for thinkers and doers---you do not need to be an existing entrepreneur to join this session, but be ready to use your brain to tap into a space that is extremely new and exciting. Nichol will share insights on how to be investor-ready in the transformative technology space, and we'll brainstorm together as a group on h

ow we can move these ideas and companies that help human well-being, forward.

--------

Nichol Bradford is fascinated by human potential, and has always been interested in how technology can help individuals expand beyond their perceived limits to develop and transform themselves to the highest level.

She spent the last decade exploring these ideas in the online game industry, serving as a senior executive with responsibility for strategy, operations and marketing for major brands that include: Activision Blizzard, Disney, and Vivendi. Most recently she managed the operations of Blizzard properties, including World of Warcraft, in China.

Nichol is also the founder of Transformative Technology Conference held in Palo Alto every October.

Now, as the CEO of the Willow Group and Executive Director of the Transformative Technology Lab @ Sofia University (TTL), Nichol is applying those same skills to the realm of elevating psychological well-being. Willow is a transformative technology company focused on employing rigorous scientific research to develop training protocols, hardware and software that can produce a reliable and positive change in the human experience. TTL is the nexus point for Transformative Technology for the academic, industry, and public sectors.

This month's Consciousness Hacking

will bring you an MIT/Stanford engineer-turned-consciousness-hacker and a med school professor who specializes in Zen, to discuss and help you learn how to enhance your performance via Zen and HRV-BF (Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback).

David Lowenfels, founder of Pranawave, holds degrees in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Music from MIT and Stanford. With 20 years of experience in the healing arts, David now spends his time creating wellness products that combine his passions for technology and healing.

David will speak on “Hacking the HRV Circuit for Mind-Body Resilience” and demo his Pranawave Biofeedback which trains a state of focused calm and flow through resonance breathing. HRV is a biomarker for stress,wellness and disease. >20 years of clinical research shows that HRV-BF can benefit depression, anxiety, PTSD, cardiac problems, hypertension, and a myriad of other polyvagal pathologies.

Gordon Greene, PhD., clinical professor of family medicine at University of Wisconsin and head priest at Spring Green Zen Dojo, and night chaplain at Mereter Hospital, finds delight in working with a chain saw in the woods, teaching Rhodes Scholars at Oxford University, presenting grand rounds at Harvard Medical School, and teaching pre-med students at Williams College to face suffering. 

Gordon will lead us in a practice on how to eliminate habits to learn most efficiently, and lead a discussion on how technology can help accelerate the learning process.
