🧠Ariel Garten’s story on how she created the Muse
🧠Why Ariel evolved this product beyond meditation to more specifically focus on sleep
🧠Success stories of people using neurofeedback through the Muse at night can transform persistent or chronic sleep difficulties
🧠A detailed discussion of the brain and its transitions from an awake state to a sleep state, into various stages while we are asleep.
🧠Discussions on brainwave activities
🧠Ariel’s insights as to the ability for meditation to help support high quality sleep architecture. Speculations, but unfortunately, we’re not there yet to understand the impact.
🧠Ariel’s wisdom for those who feel they cannot mediate or get more stressed during mediation. That was precisely why she invented the Muse!
🧠Why the Muse can be helpful for women at various parts of their cycle
🧠Ariel helps us understand why we can’t just look at sleep stages from wearables on the wrist or hand to get insight and accuracy to as much as our gold standard as we can when it’s on the brain.
MORE ON ARIEL:
Ariel Garten is probably one of the most interesting people you will meet. She is trained as a psychotherapist and neuroscientist, is a mom, former fashion designer, and the co-founder and visionary of an amazing and highly successful tech start-up Muse.
Muse tracks your brain during meditation to give you real-time feedback on your meditation, guiding you into the “zone” and solving the problem most of us have when starting a meditation practice. Muse lets you know when you are doing it right. Muse S is also designed to help you fall asleep faster.
When Ariel is not reading brains (literally) or investing in, inspiring, and advising other start-ups and women in biz, you can find her on stages across the world, from TED to MIT to SXSW. She inspires people to understand that they can accomplish anything they want by learning what goes on in their own minds.
Ariel is also the co-host of the Untangle Podcast.
