Episode Info:

Imagine controlling the world directly with your mind. That was my guest's dream - and she and colleagues brought that dream to life.
Ariel Garten has a fascinating and eclectic background in psychotherapy, art, fashion design, neuroscience, technology and start ups. She is a co-Founder of Interaxon, the developers of Muse, a brain sensing headband that translates your mental activity into the guiding sounds of weather to help you find focused calm. Busy mind? Stormy weather. Calm mind? Peaceful weather.
Ariel has lived a life without limitations. Her curiosity has led her to pursue bold, audacious goals within a broader quest to have a positive impact on humanity.
In this conversation Ariel and I talk about:

  • Interaxon's project to create mind powered light installations across Canada for the 2010 Winter Olympics
  • How she came to be the CEO of a technology start up that started in a basement
  • Muse - the brain sensing meditation headband. How it works, how it helps and my experience making the birds chirp
  • The impact Muse is having on schools, clinical settings, research and individuals across the globe
  • Using your mind to better understand your heart, breath and body
  • And because you never know where a podcast conversation will take you - Ariel's interpretation of my mum's dreams
