Amazing Brains – 006 –

Dr. Richard Soutar

In today’s episode, Micah sits down with Dr. Richard Soutar, well published author. He is a thought leader, pioneer in the neurofeedback field, and CEO and founder of New Mind Technology.

Show Notes

  • During COVID, New Mind has been shifting office practices to in-home practices
    • Richard says that it took a while to get government and agencies to get it to work
  • New Mind is doing Neurofeedback training for self improvement, for meditation, for relaxation, etc
  • The way has been paved by all different pioneers


  • Neurofeedback is awesome because there is a re-wiring, and a real change
    • There is a new level of optimal functioning, new socio-emotional levels, just documentable changes
  • Richard says that his patients say that “what feels really good, is feeling really good, and being able to make things happen in my life. It feels empowering”
    • “Enhancing people’s quality of life is the real goal” – Richard
  • After a couple responses, you find ones that are better than the old ones
    • And you find the liberty in responding differently, to change your life
  • Musicians, visual artists, business people, they all find a new form of creativity


  • There is one girl who was going to commit suicide, but she changed her lifestyle, her friends, where she lived, her jobs, etc
    • Getting into a new space is a shock for some, when they are used to suffering
  • With a transcendental state that you can get to on psychedelics, you can only be in that state for so long
    • With neurofeedback, you find that space inside of you, and once you learn it and recognize it, you can revisit it often
    • People are capable of reaching these ‘high’ states, and it’s learning to recognize where those states ‘begin’ and where they ‘end’ to move within them
  • The fear of the pain, makes us cling more tightly to it
    • “You can’t break through (pain) by an act of will, you break through it by letting go” – Richard

Frequency and Waves

  • Most decisions are made in the feeling brain, not the thinking brain
  • There is a fibonacci sequence in the brain waves, and it starts with the heart
  • Theta is a great frequency to use to help tap in
  • The ‘aha’ moments that people get are little worlds you can actually train yourself to access
    • When you grasp for it, you lose it, the flow comes upon you

Final Thoughts

  • Micah says that Dr. Soutar’s YouTube channel is a wonderful resource
  • Micah says that he can make someone feel better in 3 sessions
  • Richard says meditate or get into neurofeedback, and everything else will follow
