Ecstacy And Meditation by Ken Coscia


Ecstacy is defined as  an overwhelming feeling of great happiness or joyful excitement. It’s also known as an emotional or religious frenzy or trancelike state, originally one involving an experience of mystic self-transcendence. Then there is the pharmacological definition referring to the drug –  an amphetamine-based synthetic drug with euphoric and hallucinatory effects, originally promoted as an adjunct to psychotherapy.

Steven Kotler and Jamie Wheal report in their book “Stealing Fire” how Silicon Valley, the Navy Seals and Maverick Scientists are revolutionizing the way we live and work by getting into a state of Ecstasis. It’s a fascinating look at research experiments and applications of this joyful, focused heightened state of awareness that dates back to the ancient Greeks, William James at Harvard University to the present research into FLOW and High Performance.

The research shows that when in this state there is a noticeable shift in brain waves to Alpha and Theta and the brain releases the neuro-chemicals of serotonin, oxytocin, anandamide, dopamine, norepinephrine and endorphins. This cascade of brain chemicals decreases pain, boosts lateral thinking, prompting feelings of peace, well-being, trust and sociability. This non-ordinary state, as it’s called lets us perceive and process more of what’s going on around us and with greater accuracy.

The information richness of a non-ordinary state affords us perspective to make connections where none may have existed before. According to the authors, it doesn’t seem to matter which technique we deploy to get there: mindfulness training, technological stimulation, or pharmacological priming, the end results are substantial. Research reports a 200% boost in creativity, a 490% boost in learning and a 500% boost in productivity.

It is my observation that by far using a mindfulness training, Silva Method Dynamic Meditation training or other proven modalities is the safest and surest way to take command and control of our lives from the inside out. Psychologists at the University of North Carolina in a 2009 study found that even four days of meditation produced significant improvements in attention, memory, vigilance, creativity and cognitive flexibility. This by the way is still yet another reason why I offer and recommend the Silva four day Immersion experience where we spend more than 50% of our time practicing Dynamic Meditation.

Imagine your possibilities when you can sustain a heightened state of awareness – Ecstasis!

Perspective …. The Point Of Power

Perspective in Psychology is referred to as the Point Of Power.
We’ve all heard the expression – When you change your point of view, you change your life.

Ken Coscia explores how ultimately your perspective on the inevitable life events we all experience is the sole determinant of your results.

In Life S### Happens!

1. Life Event: Even the most fortunate of men and women experience an occasional setback. Some are within our control and some are not.

2. Interpretation – Value – Point of View: is the one thing you have absolute control over. It creates your….

3. Attitude: Pessimistic – give up or Optimistic- makes an effort – takes action

4. Results: the final outcome.

Have you ever thought that some people just seem to have an unfair advantage? 

People always ask me how I do it all, wondering how I am able to move courageously towards my dreams, and travel with my work worldwide for 46 years. Some of these same people often marvel at how I went from academic probation due to Ds at Boston University to graduating Cum Laude – (As) while I was also teaching Silva as a new instructor in Boston. They also wonder how I was able to help my Mom stop having asthma attacks and overcome Arthritis.

Some people chalk it up to good luck, good genes but really its something else… Its having the tools and skills to implement. 

Its the difference between knowing that you are on path, or just struggling to make it through. 
Its the difference between feeling stagnant and feeling deeply fulfilled and energized about your life. 

I have taught  for many years that  confidence comes from consistently living from and into our full potential. Its something that has given me the biggest shifts in my life. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would become the lead trainer and International Training Director for the Silva Method worldwide. I feel so blessed, honored and privileged to serve you in this capacity. 

Now is your time to take it to the next level. And I would like to help you do this.
I want to give you my unfair advantage so that you can have the same unfair advantage in your life. 

I would love to have you join me in an upcoming Immersion Experience of Life & Intuition System and help you take command of your life from the inside out.

How To Sustain Motivation Through Self-Confidence

I’m sure you can agree that self-confidence is a vitally important topic when you consider the extremely high levels of uncertainty so many people are feeling these days. Many of you are facing the need to re-invent your health, relationships and career – finances. There seems to be so much to learn.


I know because I am also re-inventing how I connect with my students and also how to offer high value courses online. Admittedly, at times it feels like a daunting mission with constant learning needed. So much so that I have felt frustrated and even thought a few times to throw the towel in.



How about you? Can you relate?



I am continually reminded that with the right training and tools, it’s easier as long as you have the confidence in yourself to be able to figure things out. I am so very appreciative of so many new training tools that are helping me immensely. I would like to do the same for you.

Confidence in oneself comes from experience, wisdom and especially from having evidence that you have indeed made progress and/or enjoyed some wins. It becomes a resource state that enables you to move through life with a higher degree of certainty and FLOW.


You create a resource state of hope, confidence and certainty by reliving with intense positive emotion a past moment of excellence and lock it in with a trigger such as your three fingers held together. You may remember (if you are an alumni) this tool that you learn in Silva Life System. I find having this sort of evidence of immense value. I can say to myself, if I did it before I can do it again! I will appreciate the opportunity to do the same for you.

I hope to see you in an Immersion soon. I would like to help you to sustain your motivation to grow, learn, optimize your health and thrive. The Silva Method Immersion Experience is packed with How To Do It Tools. Please come and join me and let’s grow together.


When You Give It All Up, You Get It ALL Back

The founder of the Trust Your Intuition Academy, the lead instructor and Silva Method International Training Director and author of the Silva Mastery System, Ken Coscia explores the art and science of creating and/or manifesting the life of your design.

This was recorded during a Facebook live.

What does it take to gain intuitive insights and get what you want?

There is a saying that I learned many decades ago – “When you give it all up, you gat it all back.”
Examining and reflecting on this expression helps us to understand what it takes to master our co-creation and/or manifestation skills. It is really a lesson about the delicate balance between Surrender and Persistence.

We have come to understand that when we “try” too hard, we experience obsessive thoughts leading to anxiety which energetically speaking repels our desired outcome. And yet we know the value of persistent effort and doing whatever it takes to achieve our goal. Here in lies our challenge!

There comes a time when we need to release and surrender our intention to the universe or whatever your spiritual belief teaches you.

Watch the video and listen deeply and enjoy.


Are You Really Inspired Or Just Playing It Safe?!


The founder of the Trust Your Intuition Academy, the lead instructor and Silva Method International Training Director and author of the Silva Mastery System, Ken Coscia explores the language of intuition.

This was recorded during a Facebook live.

Learning to trust and focus your intuition for breakthrough living is both an art form and developed skill. There are obstacles in the path to this inner wisdom. We sometimes experience distortions in our thinking that interferes with accurate reliable intuitive insights. Sometimes you may feel that this feeling, idea and/or course of action is right when it may be that if feels right because it’s safe and you haven’t stepped out of your comfort zone.

We explore in this episode how to clear a path to make better wiser decisions and high performance by learning to make distinctions between playing it safe and being truly inspired.

Practice is necessary to master any skill and especially when it comes to being confident with accurate reliable intuitive insight.
Continuous practice helps you get to the point where you know the difference that makes the difference.
