Our Theme

The Science of the Mystery and the Mystery of the Science:

Exploring the Subtle, Hidden Factors that Influence Everything

Join Ann, Ursula, exciting guest speakers and you, the members of our wonderful BEabove community to explore what’s on the cutting edge of neuroscience, consciousness and coaching. This year’s gathering features interesting talks by well-known neuroscience and consciousness experts, interactive workshops, a tranquil and rejuvenating setting, and of course, plenty of opportunities to connect.

Join us for an experiential, interactive, and yes, breathtaking two and half days of gathering with fellow explorers in the field of human development and effectiveness.

Featured Speakers

Ann Betz and Ursula Pottinga

Your hosts | Bios

The view from Above—what’s unfolding in the world of the neuroscience of consciousness; what we are now learning about the neuroscience of the Seven Levels. In other words, what’s new? Ann and Ursula will also take you through an exploration of new understandings of some of the hidden (and harder to measure) influences on human growth and development.

Amanda Blake

Joining us live virtually from California | Bio

Mandy will take us on a deeper dive into the neuroscience behind the body’s innate — and too-often overlooked — intelligence. Learning to leverage this hidden intelligence increases intuitive capacity, personal effectiveness, and powerful embodied knowing. Mandy will share some of the very latest on mirror neurons, heart and gut awareness, the vagus nerve, how the body stores memory and how we can access this aspect of our intelligence even more effectively. We’ll also have some time to ask Mandy other questions we’ve been wondering about in terms of the body and what it knows. Recommended reading prior to Amanda’s session: Your Body is Your Brain.

Kristy Sweetland

Joining us live at Ojo Santa Fe | Bio

Kristy will take us on an experiential journey to connect even more powerfully with the collective consciousness, using the energy of the land around us. Check out Kristy’s amazing story in her book Stark Raving Zen.

Anthony (Tony) Jack

Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy, Case Western Reserve University | Bio

Anthony Jack holds a PhD in experimental psychology and has extensive training in philosophy and neuroscience. He has done wide-ranging fMRI work on attention, consciousness and social processing in the brain and is an expert on the Default Mode Network and the neuroscience of coaching (co-author of the classic Neuroscience of Coaching white paper with Richard Boytazis). Tony will be sharing updates on this work with us, as well as being available for our questions around neuroscience, consciousness and more.
