Zadan: Allowing the Mind to See
Zadan was founded in 2005 to research the application of cutting edge brain science and mind training techniques, such as meditation and mindfulness. Researchers were discovering just how flexible our brains are and how they can be rewired in amazing ways. We wanted to develop techniques that people could apply to improve their brain’s abilities, achieve goals, and enjoy life moment by moment.
The name Zadan comes from a Japanese word meaning, “Concentrating the mind to see through illusions and see reality as it truly is.”
Through mindfulness and training we can enable the potential of the brain, allowing the mind to see!
