      Training the Brain: How Military Personnel Performs Better Under Stress, and reduces Stress Injury

      Statements by Maj. General Walter Piat, USMC,

      Elizabeth Stanley, PHD, Captain Ret. USMC,

      Police Chief Sylvia Moir (Arizona, Tempe) on using mind-fitness and mindfulness training, to build resilience and protect from stress-injury. 

      “Mindfulness, not just to deal with the stresses of post traumatic events but also how to train and be prepared before we enter an event and help the outcome of the event. It can make a real difference in soldiers’ lives, who have to deal with very complex environments and then have to come home and try to reintegrate with their families.”

      Maj. General Walter Piat, USMC

      “To be able to reset our body and mind after something difficult has happened, before the next encounter is really important. If we do not have the capacity to reset our body and mind, over time the body and mind gets dysregulated leading to all the PTSD symptoms the media is reporting about.”

      Elizabeth Stanley, PHD, Captain Ret.

      "Knowing the other and knowing oneself,
      In one hundred battles no danger.
      Not knowing the other and knowing oneself,
      One victory for one loss.
      Not knowing the other and not knowing oneself,
      In every battle certain defeat."

      Sun Tzu, 'The Art of War' Denma Translation

      "For years, so many of us involved in military ... tactical training opted for the ‘sexier side’ of our skill sets, working on deadly force, discriminative marksmanship, or defensive tactics, but rarely, if ever, factoring in the mental side and its importance to our success" 

      Lt. Col. Eduardo Jany, USMC

      “Mindfulness training not only countered the detrimental effects caused by stress and fatigue, but also reinforced strategic leadership competencies, including identity, mental agility, and cross-cultural savvy.”

      COL David Hodne, Commander, 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team

      "Your life is dependent on staying calm and making appropriate 

      decisions while under stress"

      Lt.Col Scott McLeod, Canadian Forces, Deputy Surgeon General

      “I approached it with mindfulness, … as much as we pump iron and build physical strength, we need to build our mental strength”

      Phil Jackson used mindfulness techniques coaching the Chicago Bulls & the Los Angeles Lakers to a total of 10 NBA championships 

      Evidence-Based

      The US Naval Research Centre together with the US Marine Corps, and the Mindfitness Institute conducted several research studies on the mindfulness and body-mind exercises included in MbwareTraining programs.
