Max Cade wrote those startling words in his ground-breaking book, The Awakened Mind: Biofeedback and the Development of Higher States of Awareness. Cade was a distinguished British government physicist who revolutionized radar and extended his understanding of light and sound into the field of mind research. As a master hypnotist, Zen meditation master, and secretary of the British Society for Psychical Research, this scientist and mystic recognized that all things including the brain and body are composed of the frequencies of light.
In 1976, Cade co-invented with electronics engineer Geoffrey Blundell the Mind Mirror EEG, a unique, composite spectrum analyzer.

British biophysicist, Zen master
Inventor of the Mind Mirror
Pioneer of awakened mind training
Nothing like the Mind Mirror had existed before, and there is still nothing else like it today.
The Mind Mirror enabled Cade to explore and map the brainwave patterns of more than four thousand people from the 1970s into the 1990s. His studies on the brainwaves of meditation and higher states of awareness led to the publication of his classic book, The Awakened Mind, and the field of EEG-led biofeedback meditation.

Humanistic psychologist Anna Wise worked closely with Cade and Blundell on their London mind research from 1973 until 1981, when she carried a Mind Mirror to the United States. For the next 30 years she conducted research of her own, wrote books, recorded meditations, and led brainwave training seminars at California's Esalen Institute, the oldest human potential center in the United States. In 2001, she implemented the Awakened Mind Practitioner Training Program. In a paper handed out to students of the Anna Wise Center, she wrote:
In America, Wise measured the brainwaves of a broader range of subjects at the peak of their creative output. Artists, executives, scientists, mathematicians, and inventors at the height of their abilities all produced the same pattern. She found that the Awakened Mind was the optimum state of consciousness regardless of an individual's mind or the direction of his or her personal path.

Today, the Awakened Mind practitioners Wise trained from 2001 to 2009--and the practitioners they are training--are making discoveries of their own. New discoveries arise out of the vastness of their interests, their rich experiences with clients and subjects, and the advanced technology of the research-grade Vilistus Mind Mirror 6.
Consequently, the Mind Mirror and awakened mind training are still on the leading edge of global mind research and consciousness development. And their clients and students are awakening and evolving faster and more efficiently than ever before.
Our mission is to connect everyone with the boundless reservoir of peace, creativity and wisdom flowing in the meditative subconscious mind. Getting in touch with it illuminates us and our world.
