FLOW: The HyperLearning State of Optimal Experience
“The happiest people spend much time in a State of Flow – the state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter. The experience itself is so enjoyable that people will do it even at great cost, for the sheer sake of doing it.”
– Mihály Csíkszentmihályi
HyperLearning is more than just an attitude or orientation to learning, but involves identified mind states that can be purposefully cultivated to dramatically enhance HyperLearning and the quality of your life.
For more than two decades, Mihály Csíkszentmihályi (pronounced “chick-sent-me-high”) has been studying states of “optimal experience” – those times when people report feelings of concentration, completely focused motivation, deep enjoyment (happiness), and a total involvement with life. These investigations have revealed that what makes experience genuinely satisfying is a state of consciousness called flow – a state of concentration so focused that it amounts to absolute absorption in activity.
A State of Flow is a single-minded immersion and represents perhaps the ultimate in harnessing the emotions in the service of performing and learning. In flow, the emotions are not just contained and channeled, but positive, energized, and aligned with the task at hand.
Mihály Csíkszentmihályi – TedTalk on Flow States: A MUST-SEE!
Everyone experiences flow from time to time and will recognize its characteristics: you typically feel strong, alert, in effortless control, unselfconscious, and at the peak of your abilities. Both the sense of time and emotional problems seem to disappear, and there is an exhilarating feeling of transcendence.
In short, flow is roughly the equivalent to what most people refer to as being “in the zone” or “in the groove.” You are pushed to the limits of your ability (or to new limits) and are loving it.
A promising and exciting discovery is that these Flow States – pleasurable HyperLearning States – can be controlled and cultivated, so that its arrival on the scene of our lives is not left to chance. Adults can learn to cultivate more states of Flow in their daily lives; this has been a topic of study for Csíkszentmihályi for several decades. We will investigate how to do this in the next section, “How to Flow.”
The key elements of Flow are:
1. the merging of action and awareness in sustained concentration on the task at hand
2. the focusing of attention in a pure involvement without concern for outcome
3. self-forgetfulness with heightened awareness of the activity
4. skills adequate to meet the environmental demand
5. clarity regarding situational cues and appropriate response
These subjective experiences are also associated with identifiable brainwave states, as I mentioned earlier in the Introduction. These brainwave states can arise naturally of their own accord, from consciously creating the right conditions for Flow, or by using Flow State technologies such as binaural beat audio tracks.
The two main HyperLearning and Flow brainwave patterns we see are Alpha and Gamma brainwave patterns.
The Alpha Brainwave Pattern
In brainwave Alpha, your mind is relaxed but alert. This is a state of passive awareness, composure, of physical and mental relaxation. Emotional sensations in the alpha state include a sense of well-being, pleasure and tranquility. We experience Alpha as a state of accelerated learning.
Your unconscious mind does not distinguish between what you imagine or actually experience. It simply does what it is told, shown, or imagined until it becomes a habit.
Alpha brainwaves naturally boost serotonin levels (a neurochemical associated with happiness and contentment) and can relax the body and mind in just minutes.
The Gamma Brainwave Pattern
Gamma Brain Waves have long been considered the brain’s information and sensory-binding brainwave – or the brainwave that is able to link and process information from all parts of the brain. Having high amounts of Gamma Brainwave activity has been associated with: having high levels of intelligence, being compassionate, having high amounts of self-control, and feelings of natural happiness.
Gamma Brain Waves have also been linked to having a great memory and an increased perception of reality. There seems to be a correlation with higher amounts of Gamma Brainwave activity and increased brain functioning ability.
People have reported being able to learn quicker and being able to maintain a laser-like focus after listening to Gamma Waves. I.Q. scores have also been noted to increase after one’s Gamma Brain Waves increase.
For adults Alpha and Gamma brainwave states occur when we meditate, daydream or enter the lighter states of hypnosis or highway hypnosis. Dr. Les Fehmi called it “Open Focus,” and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi calls it a Flow State. In short, Alpha and Gamma are brainwave patterns of accelerated learning, or HyperLearning.
One good way to enter the Alpha and Gamma states is to use specially recorded music using binaural beats, which we will investigate at the end of this chapter.
In a supportive environment, a person is both happy and challenged to their limits simultaneously, and this creates a brainwave symphony of Theta, Alpha, Gamma, and Delta brainwave patterns.
Flow and Performance
Flow has a strong, documented correlation with a wide range of performance enhancement. Researchers have found that achieving a flow state is positively correlated with optimal performance in the fields of artistic and scientific creativity, teaching , learning, and sports.
Flow also has a strong correlation with the further development of skills and personal growth. When one is in a flow state, he or she is working to master the activity at hand. Further, flow is positively correlated with a higher future motivation to perform, and to perform well.
HyperLearning in a Flow State
When you are in a Flow State your mind is open to information in an incredibly powerful way. Csíkszentmihályistates that over learning enables the mind to concentrate on visualizing the desired performance as a singular, integrated action instead of a set of actions. In HyperLearning this is achieved through a combination of personal interest and pushing the limits of our current understanding.
You can get the effective download on Flow in the book, Finding Flow: The Psychology of Engagement with Everyday Life. This is a quicker and more concise introductory read than the original book, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience.
Now let’s look at how you can cultivate the ability to enter a flow state more frequently with careful attention to certain Flow-inducing Life Practices.
How to Flow
You yourself are in an ecstatic state to such a point that you feel as though you almost don’t exist. I’ve experienced this time and again. My hand seems devoid of myself, and I have nothing to do with what is happening. I just sit there watching in a state of awe and wonderment. And it just flows out by itself.
– Mihaly Csíkszentmihályi
There are certain conditions you can try to cultivate that will help you to create flow states and maintain them as you learn. The following are important guidelines to help you start generating flow states.
Set Clearly Defined Goals
It is easier to enter a state of Flow with clearly defined goals that make it possible to act without questioning the larger sense of should be done. Such statements and orientations are:
“I will finish reading this book today.”
“This will be fixed in the next hour.”
“We need an answer on this right away.”
“If this is not taken care of quickly…”
Commit to and Look Forward to Being Challenged
Flow also happens when our skills are engaged in overcoming a challenge that is difficult but possible. This calls us to develop new skills while fully engaging those we already have. Self-confidence, curiosity, and faith in our abilities and the importance of the task play into this positive association with challenges.
Reduce or Eliminate Interruptions (The Nemesis of HyperLearning)
This is incredibly important. I did not fully appreciate this until I understood what a precious and effective thing a Flow State was. It can take a few minutes – or untrained – a few hours to get into a good Flow State… but only seconds or minutes to be pulled out of one. In his book, Creativity: Flow and the Psychology of Discovery and Invention, Csíkszentmihályi writes:
“Many of the peculiarities attributed to creative persons are really ways to protect the focus of concentration so that they may lose themselves in the creative process. Distractions interrupt flow, and it may take hours to recover the peace of mind one needs to get on with the work. The more ambitious the task, the longer it takes to lose oneself in it, and the easier it is to get distracted.”
Just someone coming in, an email or phone call to answer, a loud sound, can be enough to interrupt or end your State of Flow, and thus your heightened ability to create and perform.
I have learned to skillfully protect my ability to cultivate and remain in States of Flow in the by reducing interruptions in the following ways:
1) Put on earphones. Music blocks the outside noise and makes it obvious to people around you that they cannot just start up a conversation. This makes them interrupt you only when it is really important.
2) Turn off ALL notifications. This means turning off notifications on mail, instant messaging, Facebook, Twitter, Skype etc. Quit the applications – it does not take long to start up your email client at an appointed time when you are finished with a period of creativity or performance in Flow. If you quit the application entirely you also remove the temptation to open up to see if someone mailed you.
3) Phone on silence mode. You might even put your phone into your bag or drawer. Most of us can see it ringing out of the corner of our eye even when it’s in silent mode.
4) Close the door. If you are in your own office or like me sitting in the “home office” some of the time, you can benefit from closing the door. This indicates to people around you that you are doing something and they shouldn’t just barge in. If you are truly present with people when your door is open and are available, they will be more likely to respect your time/space when you want to work undisturbed.
Read Books and Get Rid of Your TV
In a large-scale study in Germany, it was found that the more often people report reading books, the more Flow State experiences they claim to have, while the opposite trend was found for watching television. Wow.
One of the reasons for this is JPMs – Jolts Per Minute – that are designed into television programming. The amount of time you are allowed, as a viewer, to remain focused on one thing during most TeeVee programming is a matter of seconds. The scenes, dialogue, music, etc. are constantly skipping around, and this trains your brain to be on a very short leash – the antithesis of a Flow State in which there are no perceived jolts, but a persistent focused attention to one stream of activity that you are personally creating.
Treat your Personal Development As a Fun Growth Opportunity
Challenge yourself in fun ways outside of your job or career. To make the best use of “free time,” we need to devote as much ingenuity and attention to it as we would to our profession. Find sports, religious or spiritual practices, outdoor activities, volunteer opportunities, community engagements, travel, reading, relationships, that require you not just to enjoy life – but to do it in ways that necessitate growth and new ways of thinking and being. Don’t get too comfortable – it is stagnating and boring.
Develop the habit of doing whatever needs to be done with concentrated, mindful attention. Even the most routine tasks, like washing dishes, or folding clothes, can bring satisfaction if we tend to them with the attentive attitude it would take to create a work of art. “If it is worth doing, it is worth doing well.” Three excellent books on Mindfulness are by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh: The Miracle of Mindfulness, Peace is Every Step, and Happiness:
And this is an illustrative online video by Thich Nhat Hanh on Mindfulness:

Flow State Technologies
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.”
Flow States can be trained, such as with the essential Flow State Life Practices mentioned above. We also know that the State of Flow involves several brainwave frequency signatures that can be entrained – or pleasantly induced – through music, and also recently developed modern audio technologies using binaural beats.
My father was an Architect – and virtually the only music I remember him listening to over his 50+ year career was classical on Houston’s 88.7 FM. Ken Wilber, an intellectual who I also hold in high regard, has said of music in his book, One Taste:
“The effects that different types of music have is fascinating. Rock music, no question, hits the lower chakras (perhaps 2 to 3, sex and power). Rap music is often street survival music (chakra 1). The best of jazz (say, Charlie Parker, Miles, Wynton) is 3 to 4.
The great romantic composers (Chopin, Mahler) are quintessential 4th chakra, all heart emotion, sometimes drippingly. Haydn, Bach, Mozart, later Beethoven, push into 5th to 6th, music of the spheres, or so it seems to me. You can actually feel your attention gravitate to various bodily centers (gut, heart, head) as these musical types play.
I find whenever I am writing about, say, Plotinus, Eckhart, or Emerson, the only music that doesn’t disturb is Mozart and the later Beethoven, some of Haydn. But when I’m doing the drudge work of bibliography, footnotes, etc., gimme rock and roll any day.”
The life of world-renown theoretical physicist Albert Eistein owes a debt of gratitude to the organizing influence of music. A little-known fact about the young Einstein is that he did extremely poorly in grade school. His teachers told his parents to take him out of classes because he was “too stupid to learn” and it would be a waste of resources for the school to invest time and energy in his education. They suggested that his parents get Albert an easy, manual labor job as soon as possible. Einstein’s mother, Pauline – an accomplished pianist – did not think that young Albert was “stupid”. Instead of following the school’s advice, Albert’s parents bought him a violin, and at the age of 13, upon hearing the music of Mozart, he dedicated himself to the instrument and became accomplished at the violin. Music was a significant key that helped Albert Einstein become one of the most creative thinkers in human history, and said himself that the reason he was so intellectually capable is because he played the violin. He loved the music of Mozart and Bach the most. A friend of Einstein, G.J. Withrow, said that the way Einstein figured out his problems and equations was by improvising on the violin.
Music is a powerful, easy-to-access way to get you out of certain limiting, non-creative, stuck states of mind (boredom, lethargy, depression, confusion) and into creative, driven, focused, pleasurable flow states. We all know this – but we sometimes forget.
The word music is derived from the Greek “muse,” the legendary goddesses of the arts and sciences. Because music is processed on both sides of the brain, listening to it primes your mind to be both artist and scientist, intuitive and logical. Music can coordinate right-brain imagery with left-brain analysis to help you solve problems more creatively, generate imagery to remove creative blocks, and expand your perceptual horizons.
Over the years, I have committed all my CDs to iTunes on my computer and my iPod, and added far more through online resources. No matter where I am, music is available as an enjoyable and state-changing, mind upgrading tool. Like Wilber, I use music to create states and to suit the type of work I am currently doing. My most-often made choices include: the Rolling Stones, the Doors, Led Zeppelin, Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonder, John Denver, Ray Charles, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Junip, Hugo, Elton John, Karnamrita Dasi, Krishna Das, John Rutter and the Cambridge Singers, Ravi Shankar, and the Baroque classical composers Mozart, Haydn, Bach, Handel.
The Indian music of Ravi Shankar and the classical pieces of composers Mozart, Haydn, Bach, and Handel suit my work and mental state in almost every situation. Why is Baroque classical music in particular so conducive to Flow?
In a three-year research study, Maya Ruvinshteyn and Leonard Parrino, math instructors at Essex County College and Rutgers-Newark, found when they played baroque background music in their classes, class enjoyment, information retention, and student grades improved.
Ruvinshteyn and Parrino studied two groups of classes. In the first group, the instructor played baroque-style music in the background during the first month of the semester. The second group, taught by the same instructors, was not exposed to music during class time. After the first month, surveys showed that students who listened to music were more likely to enjoy class (86 percent vs. 76 percent) and less likely to find mathematics challenging (33 percent vs. 46 percent). Similar changes were noted in both groups regardless of which instructor taught the course. Preliminary results also indicated an improvement in student grades.
“I first heard about music as a learning tool when I was studying English,” says Ruvinshteyn, who spoke Russian as a first language. She believes that their study is the first that links music to improved attitudes and to math and better performance in the college environment. “Our study shows that learning can be made more enjoyable for the students and more pleasant for the instructors when appropriate music is added to the environment.”
“I never liked math before, but this class was different.”
“I thought the music would put me to sleep, instead I was paying more attention to his board work.”
“Most classes have someone tapping a pencil, chewing, talking or whispering. This class is different.”
According to the body of research over the past 40 years, Baroque music enhances learning of foreign languages and improves performance in some types of tests.
Why Baroque music? Some researchers believe that, because baroque music pulses between 50 to 80 beats per minute, it stabilizes mental, physical and emotional rhythms. This stabilization helps the listener to achieve a state of deeper concentration and focus, especially in situations where large amounts of information need to be processed and learned, such as the learning of foreign languages, mathematics, and creative work.
Music does affect brainwaves, and slower baroque selections from composers such as Mozart, Bach, Handel, Vivaldi or Corelli can create mentally stimulating environments for creativity , Flow, and new innovations.
If you have an internet connection, you can begin immediately to access the best of these composers over YouTube. Just pull some music up and let it play in the background while doing anything – any activity at all – and see how it positively affects your abilities and enjoyment. Long-term, access your LPs, CDs – and for optimum portability – an iPod or similar device so that music, and what is next – binaural beat technology – is always available to you.
Binaural Beat Technologies
What are binaural beats? They are slightly offset tones – low frequency pulsations – played in each of your stereo earphones that induce in your brain various natural brainwave patterns: alpha, beta, theta, delta, gamma, lamda, episilon… These are the four main brainwave pattern categories:
Because binaural beats (“bi” meaning “two” and “aural” meaning “detectable sounds”) entrain train your brain to these states – or various combinations of these brainwaves, we call binaural beat technologies brain/mind entrainment. The audio tracks we will discuss today can gently, significantly entrain the following States: Flow, HyperLearning, Deep Relaxation, Physical Healing, Creative, Compassionate, Releasing, and Deep Meditative…
Experiencing these deep meditative states each day provides a super-enriched environment for your nervous system, causing enormous (and very beneficial) changes in the brain.
What they are actually doing is gradually giving the nervous system more input (of a very precise nature) than it can handle… the way it is currently structured …in much the same way exercise gives your body more than it can handle physically, pushing it to grow stronger.
The brain’s response? Reorganization at a higher level. Creation of new neural pathways. Increased communication between the left and right hemispheres of the brain, leading to what scientists call “whole-brain functioning.”
These entrained brainwave states are are associated with:
- Profoundly deep meditation
- Dramatic increases in the production of a whole variety of beneficial brain chemicals, including pleasure-causing endorphins, as well as a number of others proven to slow aging and increase longevity and well-being
- The release and falling away of dysfunctional mental and emotional patterns (such as anger, fear, anxiety, depression, sadness, substance abuse, self limitations, etc.), even those that have stubbornly resisted other methods
- Increased learning ability, enhanced creativity, greater intuition, improved focus and concentration, and (even more amazing) greatly increased personal self- awareness (scientists call this combination “whole brain functioning”)
- Dramatically lower stress levels, and an increased ability to deal with whatever comes at you from the world, calmly and clearly. You become more relaxed, less anxious, more centered, more peaceful, and more connected to others
- Achievement becomes easier, and without the same feelings of anxiety and stress. Taking the risks necessary for success doesn’t seem so scary anymore. Good things begin to just “happen” in such a way they almost seem to fall right into your lap
- The need for sleep decreases, yet aliveness, vitality and energy increase.
Using binaural beat tracks is also associated with reduced cortisol (a stress hormone), increased levels of DHEA (a precursor to almost every hormone the body needs and a determinant of physiological age and disease or its prevention), and the helpful deep sleep hormone, melatonin.
I got into binaural beat technologies through the Holosync program, developed by Bill Harris and Centerpointe Research. Their introduction to brain/mind entrainment is stellar, as is their program.
I have recently integrated the iAwake Profound Meditation Program, and the soundscape is incredible. If development of your mind in this fashion is part of cultivating your life’s passion and unique purpose, you will probably want to check out all of these over time, like tasting wines or world cuisines or different genres of music.
Here is how I use these various tracks in my daily life:
- Meditation:I have used the Holosync Program since 2008, and the iAwake Profound Meditation Program since 2011. Both are excellent. Beyond the tracks themselves, I like both programs for the incredible job they do in educating you about binaural beats, meditation, and the process of genuine life transformation into higher, wider, more skillful ways of being and knowing.I have also been using Dr. Jeffrey Thompson’s Awakened Mind CD, which induces the same brainwave patterns as observed in decades-long meditating monks. This CD is not an educational program like Holosync and Profound Mediation Programs are, but the technology behind the tracks themselves is based on years of research, and is excellent to integrate with meditation.
- While Researching/Writing: iAwake has a Flow State track that I listen to when I am researching and writing (Holosync has come out with a Flow State track in the last few months – I have not reviewed it yet, but if the rest of their tracks and dedication to excellence is any indication, I am sure it is excellent).
- Sleep: There are many excellent options here. The Profound Meditation Program by iAwake has a Delta Sleep track which is very, very pleasurable to listen to – and I have never heard more than 15 minutes of it without falling deeply asleep.Dr. Jeffrey Thompson also has several Delta Sleep CDs with binaural beats that are overlayed with nature sounds – and I recommend his work highly.
- Healing States and Beneficial Hormones: As Bill Harris from Centerpointe will tell you, there is a whole cascade of positive hormones and healing systems in your physiology that are released when you listen to binaural tracks. If I am feeling unwell, run down, or am working very hard, long hours and think that I may get run down, I listen to these binaural tracks while working and in the evening to help my system reorganize and stay well.
- Compassion and Love: A lot of compassion and love arises from having the interior space to hold the care and concerns of others. These human capacities are also generated by witnessing your own human experience, and seeing what it has in common with all people. Meditating with binaural tracks increases your interior presence of mind, a feeling of space, the ability to hold more in your mind (such as what is going on for others), and it increases your compassion for others as you see that the human mind produces everything under the sun, and the human experience is a vast territory that is best traversed with others who love and understand us. Meditating cultivates the ability to do this, and binaural beat technologies helps you on your way… at least that is what I and hundreds of thousands of others have gratefully found.

Holosync Audio Technology by Centerpointe Research
The initial level of the thorough Holosync Program is called Awakening Prologue and includes several powerful Holosync soundtracks (available only on CDs), comprehensive support materials and services and a huge package of introductory materials explaining the program and what’s likely to happen as you use it.
Holosync Awakening Prologue includes the three main soundtracks you’ll need to participate in this initial level of the program. It also includes an excellent Special Introductory Package of written materials explaining the scientific basis of meditation, how deep change really happens, the scientific background that makes Holosync technology work, and how to get the most from the program.
Just for trying Awakening Prologue, they will also give you five additional FREE Holosync soundtracks:
- Quietude: this beautiful and very relaxing soundtrack features the Holosync technology at the alpha level. Since alpha is the brain wave pattern of super learning, Quietude is also perfect for listening while reading, learning, or studying, or to play in your work space to keep you refreshed and alert for hours.
- Oasis will take you deeper, into the theta brain wave state, a state of increased creativity. (I like to listen to Oasis when I’m trying to find a creative solution to a seemingly “unsolvable” problem.)
- Thresholds of the Mind: Your Personal Roadmap to Success, Happiness, and Contentment by Bill Harris
- A special 2-soundtrack set, Super Longevity CD created in conjunction with Vincent Giampapa, M.D., noted longevity researcher and past-president of the American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine. These soundtracks are specially engineered to create powerful changes in important brain chemicals related to aging and longevity, including DHEA, cortisol, and melatonin.
What happens as you use Awakening Prologue
Each time you listen, the Holosync technology will give your nervous system a very specific audio stimulus through each ear, affecting a part of your brain called the olivary nucleus, and taking you into a state of super-deep meditation. In order to process and handle this stimulus, your brain will create new neural pathways between the left and right sides of the brain, until over time it has created a new structure that can easily handle the stimulus we’re giving it.
Here is a summary of the many real advantages of participating in The Holosync Solution:
» Super-deep meditation, literally at the touch of a button
» Improved mental abilities, heightened creativity and problem solving ability
» Dramatic reduction in stress and anxiety
» Improved health and a new sense of mental, emotional and physical well-being
» Increased focus, concentration, memory and learning ability
» Increased motivation and confidence
» Production in the brain of many vital neurochemicals proven to slow aging and keep the body young, alive and fully functioning
» Better, more restful sleep
» More happiness and flow in your life
» Healing of unresolved mental and emotional blocks
The Awakened Mind System 2.0 by Dr. Jeffrey Thompson
British researcher and Zen master C. Maxwell Cade spent decades analyzing the brainwave patterns of these extraordinary people. He discovered that they each shared a common pattern of brainwaves, which Cade called the Awakened Mind Pattern, and which he believed held the key to tapping into one’s highest potential.
Created by Dr. Jeffrey Thompson, The Awakened Mind System 2.0 uses breakthrough audio recording processes to help you access this brainwave pattern so that you can directly experience the enormous benefits of this heightened state of consciousness.
Dr. Thompson embeds inaudible pulses of sound that mirror the Awakened Mind Pattern into an ambient musical soundtrack. As you listen, your own brainwaves begin to reflect the Awakened Mind pattern, drawing you easily into states of deep insight, clarity of mind, creative inspiration and peak performance.
Listen as soft background music while working, painting, writing, or enjoying other creative activities. Daily use trains your brain to draw on your deepest capacities and abilities wherever and whenever you need them.
Based on over 15 years of pioneering clinical research. Use with headphones or ordinary speakers. Contains no spoken words or subliminal messages
Dr. Jeffrey Thompson’s pioneering work with thousands of patients has led to groundbreaking discoveries in how sound frequency patterns built into musical soundtracks induce brainwave entrainment. Fortune 500 companies, healthcare professionals, clinics, hospitals, meditation groups, and individuals worldwide use Dr. Thompson’s audio programs for deep relaxation, healing, inner exploration, and meditation.
Final Words on Binaural Beat Brain/Mind Entrainment
You can see that there are many, many uses for these tracks, and the technology is highly researched and developed. I keep these tracks on my iPod and my iTunes on my computer so they are available to me anytime, anywhere.
When it comes to creative work, working with others, and HyperLearning, there is nothing quite like the ability to call up profound brainwave states at the push of a button. I have found these tracks nothing short of miraculous for helping change my state and skillfully induce frames of mind that are conducive to my health, my work, my relationships, and fulfilling the deep purposes of my life.
Binaural beat tracks are one of my secrets… I hope you thoroughly enjoy integrating them into your Brain/Mind Life Practices.
