A brain called TED…

What can I say – it’s all over now, and I have no idea what I will talk about every evening now.

Thanks for having me TEDxGhent, it was fun 😉

I'm Vanessa, writer, speaker and meditation enthusiast. I wasn't always a writer. I used to make annoying TV ads, which I'd still be doing, if I hadn't woken up blind and paralysed one morning in 2012. Yup. It was one helluva wake-up call and I wrote a book about it. That experience turned me into the curious, self-experimenting, brain-obsessed woman I am now. I've just spent the last 3 years practising 10 different meditation techniques as part of a ground-breaking EEG study with Cambridge. Follow me to find out what happened.

  1. Hi vanessa

    How did it go?. I’m sure it ran like a river, flowing and expanding until the end.

    Just to let you know I am on a course this weekend so there will no meditation this Sunday. Back to usual time the following week.

    I would love to have a copy or print out of those brain images you showed us at the talk. Would that be possible?.

    They would be very useful to show how all the 4 brain frequencies can actually co-exist. Very useful for explaining how one can be in a meditative state and still be consciously aware and have thoughts coming in and out. So many people think that you have to be in one state of awareness or another.

    Hope all is good.
