There is an ‘ecstasy’ button in your brain: but do you know where to find it?
Most of us spend a lifetime searching for a remedy to the stress and overwhelm of modern life.
So we meditate. We try one personal growth tool after the other. We take expensive trips and retreats, to try and reclaim our mojo and our sanity.
But nothing ever really sticks, because…
Fleeting moments of stillness can never extinguish the exhaustion, noise, and struggle of a life lived in perpetual chaos.
Thankfully, there is a better way.
A way to infuse your every moment with the bliss of a monk meditating in the clouds. The flow of a master musician performing through their soul. And the connectedness of a visionary artist, calling on something greater to summon ideas the world has never seen.
Accessing – and staying in – these ecstatic states in your daily life is not a matter of giving up your worldly possessions, or committing your life to esoteric arts and practices.
Rather, it’s a matter of science. Or more specifically, knowing how to regulate your brain chemicals to shift how you think, feel, and perform – at the snap of a finger.
And through the Mystic Brain program with award-winning neuroscience researcher Dawson Church, you’ll discover the simplest, fastest way to awaken this inner revolution: so peace, joy, and flow become as effortless to you as breathing.
Master your neurochemicals, and in turn your life
Through leading-edge neuroscience, the Mystic Brain program guides you through today’s most effective, efficient, and lasting process for creating transcendent bliss and peace in your daily life.
Stress, anxiety, and inner turmoil can now be banished from your daily routine. In their place, you gain total freedom to choose your emotional states, while maximizing your feelings of wellness, productivity, and oneness with the Universe.
Unlike the average spiritual program, there are no arcane or mysterious arts to get confused by. And even ancient practices like meditation are stripped of all unnecessary dogma, so only what truly works is retained and amplified.
Instead, you’re guided through accessible, rewarding, science-based transcendent practices you’ll use daily to master the seven key brain neurochemicals silently shaping your life:
- Dopamine: the pleasure chemical
- Oxytocin: the love chemical
- Norepinephrine: the focus chemical
- Serotonin: the satisfaction chemical
- Nitric oxide: the intensity amplifier
- Beta-endorphin: the pain reliever
- Anandamide: the bliss chemical
Explore the Mystic Brain curriculum
Mystic Brain is a 22-day online journey towards mastery of your brain’s neurochemicals: and in turn your ability to experience ecstatic bliss, peace, and flow in your daily moments.
On each day, you’ll join Dawson Church for a 20-minute video lesson that takes you deep into the neurochemicals that shape your life: and the science-based transcendent practices and neurochemical meditations you can use to harness and regulate them to your benefit.
By the end of the program, you’ll have all the tools and wisdom you need to naturally harness your neurochemistry – and transform how you think, feel, and perform in your everyday life.

Dopamine: Activating Motivation & Drive (Day 1 – 3)
Dopamine is your “motivational molecule”: the chemical that lights up when you anticipate a reward, and that drives you to seek out more.

Oxytocin: Activating Love & Connection (Day 4 – 6)

When you learn how to regulate your oxytocin levels, you can consciously begin to deepen your bonds with others, and create an abundance of magic moments of closeness and unconditional love.
- The oxytocin neurochemical meditation: use this meditation for an instant oxytocin glow up – perfect for just before moments of bonding, or social engagements with loved ones.

- And much more.
Norepinephrine: Activating Focus & Attention (Day 7 – 9)
If you’ve ever struggled to stay focused, alert, and productive for as long as need to: norepinephrine is the chemical you want.

Serotonin: Activating Satisfaction (Day 10 – 12)
People who enjoy high levels of emotional wellbeing and fulfillment also have high levels of serotonin. That’s because this chemical – produced in the base of your brain – works with dopamine to make you feel good, while also protecting you from the ravages of angst, impulsive thoughts, and negative thought patterns.
- The serotonin neurochemical meditation: some people use synthesized drugs for a serotonin boost – but you won’t have to with this meditation, which leaves you with a natural all-day glow.

Nitric Oxide: Activating Ecstasy (Day 13 – 15)
Nitric oxide is the chemical of focused intensity: as in it helps you show up in your daily life fully and enthusiastically, ready to perform and create at your highest potential. This wonder chemical also has a host of other benefits, including improving your brain’s neuroplasticity (your ability to absorb new information and patterns), and even boosting your immunity.
- The nitric oxide neurochemical meditation: awaken your fullest passion, energy, and focus – and prepare to embrace the day in a peak state of calm yet unstoppable intensity.
- The nitric oxide breathing technique: need a burst of intensity and vigor? Shift your breathing in this simple way, and watch it kick in instantly.

Pain and physical discomfort can wreak havoc on your emotional states and your productivity: and beta endorphin is the chemical you need to eliminate it naturally, so you can return to a state of full-body bliss.

- Crafting a pain-free life: try these easy daily practices to enter a lasting neurochemical state of high resilience to pain and physical discomfort.
- And much more.
Anandamide: Activating Bliss (Day 19 – 21)
Marijuana is natural, but nothing’s more natural than a bliss-inducing chemical produced by your own brain. Anandamide is a gateway to the kind of joy that makes you smile for no reason, feel pleasure in its purest form, and express gratitude for yourself and your life. It’s associated with high levels of the theta and gamma brainwaves, typically found in veteran meditators.
- The anandamide neurochemical meditation: flood your body with unconditional joy and ecstasy, as you release all the negative thoughts and patterns that disrupt your bliss.

- An easy-to-follow post-program game plan: follow these steps to continue growing and glowing, long after the program is over.
- How to heal your traumas: unhealed trauma is one of the biggest blockers of spiritual and emotional growth – and by addressing yours in the right way, your path to ecstasy will be far clearer.

“I’m able to stay so much more focused”
When I started this programme I had a massive hope that it’ll help me to bring more joy, excitement, and the state of flow into my work. Although my business brings me a lot of fulfillment, there are parts of my work that I was really dreading, especially the admin side.
With this quest and the meditations that come with it, I managed to create a state of flow within my brain. It helped me to be more productive but also to bring back my enthusiasm for work. Now, I experience days when I feel like I can’t stop working. And I really enjoy it! I’m able to stay so much more focused. I’ve not been procrastinating, I’m able to get things done and enjoy it. This quest also helped me to stick to my daily meditations. Because of that, I’m less stressed, calmer, happier and more joyful.

“The quest helped me to optimize my general discipline, productivity, and mood”
Mystic Brain you’ve got me!!!
I love to meditate daily and have created impactful rituals over the last few years. But I am still curious to expand my wisdom when it comes to meditation. So I got hooked when I read about the new quest Mystic Brain from Dawson Church. The scientific approach of reaching flow states, understanding the related molecules combined with diving deeper into the technique of EFT has drawn me to do this quest.
Dawson guides in a very structured way through the journey of the quest which I liked a lot. I realized that the quest helped me to optimize my general discipline, productivity, and mood. I felt his Eco Meditation expanded my meditation strategy and stimulated flow states with ease.
At the end of the quest, I was able to get a glimpse of the BLISS BRAIN state which is a big teaser for me to expand this technique.
Thank you Dawson and Mindvalley for helping me to tweak my meditations and expanding my spiritual knowledge from a very different perspective. Always enjoy learning more!!!
