What is EBT?

Emotional Brain Training is a neuroscience-based way of living your best life. All our problems are caused or amplified by wires in our emotional brain. EBT gives you the power to switch off those wires on the spot. If you notice that a wire is particularly strong, that's not a problem. Use EBT more precisely and rewire it.

How does EBT work?

Throughout the day, keep our amazing app handy. Whenever a stressor crops up, reach for your app and switch off the circuit that is causing it. Get immediate relief. If that problem really bothers you, put it on your "rewiring list," and when you have the time, use the app again to rewire it for lasting relief.

What support is available?

Great support is included with all memberships. Every day there is a LIVE drop-in session with a Certified EBT Provider so you can have your questions answered and learn the basics of the tools. It's private and confidential. See the techniques in action and feel better on the spot.

How does rewiring circuits change me?

Once you learn the EBT tools, you can relax. Whenever you feel bad, you know just what to do: reach for your app and switch off the circuit that is causing the problem. It all adds up. Each time you rewire a circuit,your brain becomes more naturally resilient and you become happier and healthier.

Can rewiring circuits transform your life?

YES! A product of more than 30 years of research, our video course, the EBT 1-2-3 JOY Program, guides you in raising your brain's set point for lasting improvements in health and well-being. Train your brain for spontaneous resilience and the habit of being in joy and purpose rather than in stress so that you can live your best life.
