Most Blessed Dr. Green, Thank you very much for your sincere efforts in promoting the Truth. that close up to ten feet object can be located after closing the eyes, or any book can be read. Note: There are four methods in seeing the things after closing them. The first: after closing the eyes, anything can be visualized clearly at any distance, but eyes should be properly sealed and closed. c. Through touching the closed envelope can be read, but eyes should be closed. d. Anything can be read from one room to another, but eyes should be closed.

Green and Green investigated voluntary control of internal states by individuals like Swami Rama and American Indian medicine man Rolling Thunder both in India and at the Menninger Foundation. They brought portable biofeedback equipment to India and monitored practitioners as they demonstrated self-regulation. They hypothesized that theta states allow access to unconscious memories and increase the impact of prepared images or suggestions. Their alpha-theta research fostered Peniston's development of an alpha-theta addiction protocol.

Absolute classic in the field, esp. in light of the fact that most neurofeedback has been swallowed by the general zeitgeist: fix the problem, enhance productivity. a+b=c (causality). It's best when we look to enhance each human organism in it's own uniquecapacity to heal/self-right/grow, rather than look to discover a blanket fix formula into which a human being can be stuffed. This last bit belies the lack of creativity and intelligence of the experimenters of much of modern life.

If you want to learn how mind works, how mental principles yoga can be measured by tools - all through the eyes of a scientist, pick this book up!

I am spiritual and was seeking to see a scientific verification of yoga principles that I toocan perhaps verify - this book showed me possible tools and principles of biofeedback.

Swami Rama and his experiements along with other Mystics in a laboratory environment really intrigued my curiosity - and I appreciated the imagination with which Dr Elmer created biofeedback template others can follow.

Amazing & Thank You To Elmers!

During the 1970s I was living in Kansas City,Missouri, while the Greens were conducting their experiments on Yogis at the Menninger Foundation which was then located in nearby Topeka, Kansas. I really knew very little about yoga,but I became fascinated by the reports about the Menninger Foundation's experiments on the local TV stations. One of the primary subjects of the experiments was a yogi named Swami Rama. [...]

At the conclusion of the Menninger Experiments I will never forget the way that they summed up the definition of yoga,"Get into a relaxed state and visualize the desired bodily result." Up to that time my total experience with the mind/body effect had been as a competitor in high school and college sports together with being trained by the US Army Rangers during the Cuban Missile Crisis and later attending the US Army Intelligence School at Fort Holabird, Maryland.

I have continued my interest in mind/body training and have since come across demystified versions of yoga using similar internal projection and visualization techniques to achieve various desired bodily results such as the use of Isometric Exercises to develop mental, physical, and emotional strength. Although I can find no connection between him and yoga there was an individual who taught a similar technique to the intelligentsia ot America during the turn of the century named Alois P. Swoboda in a course that he called Conscious Evolution. His course was directed at teaching the individual to develop their internal latent powers to help them adapt to the ever changing Universe. Currently John E. Peterson has authored a book titled "The Isometric Power Revolution" which takes the same approach although directed more toward the development of physical and mental strength.

I would definitely recommend "Beyond Biofeedback" to anyone who has an interest in the power of the mind over the body.

The Greens did an excellent job of blending their Biofeedback research and work with their own paths and personal studies. Even though the book is somewhat dated, there is still much to be gathered from this 30+ year book. Highly recommended.

Clear description of the field at a moment when it was just learning to walk. More has come from this seminal work and its authors, but this is a Must Read for anyone interested in Biofeedback, Neurofeedback and BCI.

For someody interested in the art and science of biofeedback, Beyond Biofeedback by Elmer and Alyce Green is a very impressive book. It takes a comprehensive look at what goes on in the heads of several swamis when they do spectacular feats of self-control such as slowing their heartbeats down or even a demonstartion of psychokinesis-- moving an object through brain power alone.

However, in a way this book is a real disappointment. I was hoping that such a comprehensive book would take a few moments to explain just *how* each swami entered the elusive theta brainwave state that made so much of their miraculous feats possible, but instead we get basically a line in the book about breathing, visualization, and of course biofeedback being the technique or method for achieving theta. What kind of explanation is that? None, really. Okay we can guess it's some form of yoga breathing, but what kind of visualization did they use-- that's the big question that's never answered in this book. Over and over again this "technique" is mentioned but it's a useless and empty phrase that has no meaning to anybody who really wants to enter the theta state. It surprises me that such thorough people would be so vague about such an important issue.

This book is much more interesting and comprehensive about biofeedback than many books on the market, incluing Anne Wise's books on the subject. But it misses a vital aspect, a true way to get into theta so that one can see for themselves the benefits of theta. Aside from that rather big sticking point, the book is otherwise pretty detailed and interesting. So I give the book three stars out of five. The book could have been so much more comprehensive and better.
Very good info for me to use in my practice!
