Whether you are new to Higher Brain Living® or an integral part of our movement—this Immersion is for you! Join us for this deep experience in personal and spiritual growth.

The human brain is like a rushing energetic river. Until now, that river has been blocked, barricaded and diverted by the primitive lower brain. The Higher Brain Living® Institute’s: ‘A New Brain, A New Beginning, Immersion’ will open that dam—and set you free.


With this one-of-a-kind experience that frees your fear-based lower brain, you will have the chance to create an extraordinary new life, to thrive, to let go of stress and overwhelm, to experience joy, confidence, passion and to grow and evolve every day.

You will know that you are good enough, worthy enough, deserving, connected and part of a new story. Your brain literally becomes the change you seek—part of an acceleration of humanity, free of limitation. But more than simply a physiological change and temporary enlightenment experience, you leave the Immersion with the insight to create a lifelong map and methodology toward vertical personal growth.

Based on the most progressive knowledge of 21st century neuroscience, with roots in ancient wisdom that dates back to yogi mystics 5,000 years ago, the ‘A New Brain, A New Beginning, Immersion’ creates a clear channel and powerful energy surge to the Higher Brain that opens a gateway to true, lasting, limitless and expansive higher living.

If you would like to further the evolution of your consciousness, culture and brain, this Immersion is for you. Welcome to the revolution!


“The current Dalai Lama meditates for four hours each morning, and he says that it is hard work. He elaborates that if neuroscience can construct a way in which he can reap the rewards without going through the practice each morning, he would adopt the innovation.”

What will you experience at this Immersion?




Purge lower brain stress, energize your Higher Brain and develop a strategy to transform all challenges into opportunity.

8:00 AM – 6:30 PM
(check in from 7:30 AM – 8:00 AM)
  • Your lower brain is primitive and resistant to change. It evolved in humanity at a time when the environment was full of predators and any behavior that lead to our survival became habituated and repeated throughout a lifetime. Higher Brain Living® Techniques transcend the lower stress-based brain and awaken higher dormant potentials in the Higher Brain. During day one of this Immersion, you will experience the release of stress and fear as you energize your Higher Brain.
  • As you awaken your Higher Brain, you will be directed in step-by-step fashion to locate (and gain clarity around) the areas of your life that hold you back from being the person you were meant to be. These challenging areas could be relationships, finances, career, weight gain, mental/emotional stress, etc. You will use your awakened Higher Brain to create the clarity needed to bring about the changes that will free your life and unleash your potential.
  • You are going to release the grip of the lower brain, energize your Higher Brain and anchor the changes you seek into the empowered Higher Brain. You will gain the new Higher Brain physiology necessary to make your goals and passions reality!





Energizing the Higher Brain and unleashing your Authentic Self.

8:00 AM – 6:30 PM
  • Discover your Authentic Self as you continue to awaken the Higher Brain state. The emergence of your Authentic Self necessitates thriving, not just surviving.
  • Your Authentic Self is part of the everyday world of space and time that we all live in. Your Authentic Self is finite, and therefore has a limited amount of time to create a life well-lived. Your Authentic Self is BIG, bold and on fire to become more. During this day you will discover just how big and bold you really are when you are free of lower brain limitation.




Tuning your Higher Brain to the experience of enlightenment consciousness.

8:00 AM – 3:30 PM
  • Day 3 promotes the ‘tuning’ of your Higher Brain to receive specially designed contemplative techniques that open you to the direct realization of your divine nature.
  • Plunge into your Transcendent Self—an enlightened state of consciousness that provides immediate experiential knowledge of the eternal unborn and undying aspect of YOU. It is the timeless, eternal ‘now’—a dimension of your being that is forever free and always knows peace.
  • Your tuned Higher Brain and the corollary awakening to your Transcendent Self can become an ever-present source of peace and freedom, and can ultimately be poured into the day-to-day life of your Authentic Self and its evolutionary movement in the world.
  • During this Immersion and culminating on day 3, the fearless Higher Brain state will also catalyze the opening of the heart and the integration of its intelligence.




  • This Immersion is set within a collective framework designed to leverage the power and resonant potential of the group. A new ‘we space’ in consciousness will be liberated at these immersions and a new sacred community will emerge.
  • Take home ability to self energize your Higher Brain
  • Take home Integration and strategy to live all of the above
  • Lunch included
  • Dr. Cottons teachings on the evolution of consciousness, culture and the brain
  • Enlightened dialogue and Q & A
