Muscle Intelligence

Interested in connecting to your subconscious intelligence?  What about accessing deeper peace, creativity, intuition... and ultimately, the answers to navigate your own life's journey?

It may surprise you that these states of heightened consciousness are truly accessible for everyone.

Today's guest, Judith Pennington, combines the practices of deepening consciousness with the neuroscience of brain wave states to forge a path to true healing and personal transformation.  Judith is the founder of the Institute for the Awakened Mind, centered around electroencephalographic (EEG) biofeedback meditation for conscious evolution.

This conversation between Ben and Judith is perfectly tuned in to the possibilities for reflective practices at the year's end!  Listen and learn:

  • Immediate techniques to induce alpha brain waves states for awareness and healing.
  • How to become more conscious of your decisions.
  • The importance of mental and sensory associations to ground yourself into a peaceful state.
  • Why intention is so vital to energetic practices.
  • Tools to bring yourself into a parasympathetic, theta brain wave state.

A breakdown of brain wave states from Judith's Mind Mirror Portal:

  • Beta (38-14 Hz): conscious, external awareness.  Logical thought and intellect.  Often indicative of stress and anxiety in its highest frequencies and amplitudes.
  • Alpha (14-8 Hz): a relaxed awareness, shifting towards internal states.  Activated in visualization and imagination.  The "bridge" that connects the conscious and subconscious mind.
  • Theta (8-4 Hz): subconscious; long-term memory and dreaming; intuition and spiritual insight.  Connection to the core of the psyche and soul.
  • Delta (4-0.5 Hz): unconscious mind; portal to universal consciousness; deep restorative sleep state.
  • Gamma (30-100 Hz): superconscious awareness of peace and transcendence; triggered by love, compassion, and high amplitude delta/theta.  Associated with spiritual ecstasy and neurogenesis/neuroplasticity.

If I have to convince you to prioritize your health, Muscle Intelligence coaching isn’t for you…. If I have to convince you that the best investment you can make is in yourself…. That being fit is not a temporary decision, but a commitment…. That it’s not about MORE or what you do, it’s about BETTER and how you do it...  Or that your physical health impacts all areas of your life, keep scrolling.

I’m not in the business of convincing anyone.  I’m in the business of transformation.

The individuals who come to us are already high-performers.  They’re committed. Ready.

Don’t get me wrong - These guys come with challenges too. They typically have limited time to train, injuries, no gym access, busy families, no customized plans, no specific training knowledge, no coach and an inner fear that it’s going to be too hard.

But here’s the tough love you need to hear:  The only difference between these guys and YOU… is that they took action. They stepped in the ring anyway.

I’m looking for a few more men who want to transform in 2022. If you’re serious and you’re committed, I’d love to see if you’re a right fit for a program I’m starting in 2022.  Apply now at
