There is an ‘ecstasy’ button in your brain: but do you know where to find it?
Most of us spend a lifetime searching for a remedy to the stress and overwhelm of modern life.
So we meditate. We try one personal growth tool after the other. We take expensive trips and retreats, to try and reclaim our mojo and our sanity.
But nothing ever really sticks, because…
Fleeting moments of stillness can never extinguish the exhaustion, noise, and struggle of a life lived in perpetual chaos.
Thankfully, there is a better way.
A way to infuse your every moment with the bliss of a monk meditating in the clouds. The flow of a master musician performing through their soul. And the connectedness of a visionary artist, calling on something greater to summon ideas the world has never seen.
Accessing – and staying in – these ecstatic states in your daily life is not a matter of giving up your worldly possessions, or committing your life to esoteric arts and practices.
Rather, it’s a matter of science. Or more specifically, knowing how to regulate your brain chemicals to shift how you think, feel, and perform – at the snap of a finger.
And through the Mystic Brain program with award-winning neuroscience researcher Dawson Church, you’ll discover the simplest, fastest way to awaken this inner revolution: so peace, joy, and flow become as effortless to you as breathing.
Master your neurochemicals, and in turn your life
Through leading-edge neuroscience, the Mystic Brain program guides you through today’s most effective, efficient, and lasting process for creating transcendent bliss and peace in your daily life.
Stress, anxiety, and inner turmoil can now be banished from your daily routine. In their place, you gain total freedom to choose your emotional states, while maximizing your feelings of wellness, productivity, and oneness with the Universe.
Unlike the average spiritual program, there are no arcane or mysterious arts to get confused by. And even ancient practices like meditation are stripped of all unnecessary dogma, so only what truly works is retained and amplified.
Instead, you’re guided through accessible, rewarding, science-based transcendent practices you’ll use daily to master the seven key brain neurochemicals silently shaping your life:
Dopamine: the pleasure chemical
Oxytocin: the love chemical
Norepinephrine: the focus chemical
Serotonin: the satisfaction chemical
Nitric oxide: the intensity amplifier
Beta-endorphin: the pain reliever
Anandamide: the bliss chemical
The curriculum: Explore the Mystic Brain curriculum
Mystic Brain is a 22-day online journey towards mastery of your brain’s neurochemicals: and in turn your ability to experience ecstatic bliss, peace, and flow in your daily moments.
On each day, you’ll join Dawson Church for a 20-minute video lesson that takes you deep into the neurochemicals that shape your life: and the science-based transcendent practices and neurochemical meditations you can use to harness and regulate them to your benefit.
By the end of the program, you’ll have all the tools and wisdom you need to naturally harness your neurochemistry – and transform how you think, feel, and perform in your everyday life.
Dopamine is your “motivational molecule”: the chemical that lights up when you anticipate a reward, and that drives you to seek out more. And by harnessing dopamine in the correct way, you can leverage it to gain instant, lasting, and unconditional motivation to grow and achieve at your fullest potential. No more feeling demotivated or deflated when life throws you a curveball.

PART 2 Oxytocin: Activating Love & Connection (Day 4 – 6)
Love, bonding, and intimacy are spiritual experiences – and their gatekeeper is oxytocin, the chemical of profound human connection.

If you’ve ever struggled to stay focused, alert, and productive for as long as need to: norepinephrine is the chemical you want. By learning how to naturally trigger this chemical, you’ll have unlimited access to a source of natural “inner caffeine” that helps you get more done in less time – without so much of the usual stress and frustrations.

Part 4 Serotonin: Activating Satisfaction (Day 10 – 12)

That’s because this chemical – produced in the base of your brain – works with dopamine to make you feel good, while also protecting you from the ravages of angst, impulsive thoughts, and negative thought patterns.

Nitric oxide is the chemical of focused intensity: as in it helps you show up in your daily life fully and enthusiastically, ready to perform and create at your highest potential. This wonder chemical also has a host of other benefits, including improving your brain’s neuroplasticity (your ability to absorb new information and patterns), and even boosting your immunity.
The nitric oxide neurochemical meditation: awaken your fullest passion, energy, and focus – and prepare to embrace the day in a peak state of calm yet unstoppable intensity.
The nitric oxide breathing technique: need a burst of intensity and vigor? Shift your breathing in this simple way, and watch it kick in instantly.

Pain and physical discomfort can wreak havoc on your emotional states and your productivity: and beta endorphin is the chemical you need to eliminate it naturally, so you can return to a state of full-body bliss. Beta endorphin is three times stronger than synthetic morphine, yet countless times better for you.

PART 7 Anandamide: Activating Bliss (Day 19 – 21)
Marijuana is natural, but nothing’s more natural than a bliss-inducing chemical produced by your own brain. Anandamide is a gateway to the kind of joy that makes you smile for no reason, feel pleasure in its purest form, and express gratitude for yourself and your life. It’s associated with high levels of the theta and gamma brainwaves, typically found in veteran meditators.
The anandamide neurochemical meditation: flood your body with unconditional joy and ecstasy, as you release all the negative thoughts and patterns that disrupt your bliss.
The blissful symbolism exercise: create your very own symbol of ecstasy, and use it to drop into a state of pure bliss just by looking at it.

And much more.

By practicing your new skills, you’ll be able to induce bliss, peace, and flow at the snap of a finger – and even without descending into deep meditation. In other words, a Mystic Brain is yours forever: and you’ve awakened to a whole new way of life.
An easy-to-follow post-program game plan: follow these steps to continue growing and glowing, long after the program is over.
