What would the world be like if every founder & CEO realized their fullest potential with an authentic altruism, a fearless heart, and an ethical more beautiful vision of the future with laser sharp cognitive focus?
IT IS MY MISSION TO COLLABORATE WITH YOU ON THIS JOURNEY.
Hi I’m Lindsay Briner
I am an explorer of higher truth with a passion for assisting people and groups in making the transition into a new level of high performance in the 21st century fast-paced world; from flow ‘state’ to a flow ‘trait.’
As an Executive Coach and Leadership Development Trainer, I’ve worked with individuals, leaders and groups for over 10 years, applying psychosomatic modalities ranging in the intersections of sports psychology, meditation, mindfulness, positive psychology, family systems psychology and much more through a transpersonal lens. It has been my greatest joy to guide people and groups into Stabilized Flow with my novel methodology. My approach was inspired by mt research as my team and I continue to collect and publish data on it’s validity.
As a research scientist, my ongoing curiosity has always resided in the largest open question in science, surrounding the ‘hard-problem’ of consciousness characterized by philosopher David Chalmers: What are the neural correlates of consciousness? And how does an updated scientific approach to defining consciousness evolve culture?
My foundational background is in neurobiology, where I focused on the effects of transcendental meditation on the neuroendocrine stress response. Starting in 2016 for many years, I worked as both a Research Scientist and Consultant at the Transformative Technology Lab in Palo Alto, CA. I investigated the analysis of a large dataset on the neuroscience and psychology of nonduality in the brain and behavior, and higher states of consciousness generally. The analysis covered how people (safely, reliably, and rapidly) transition to higher states, how these states result in a fundamental wellbeing, and how that shift can become permanent. From states to stages, structures and traits in the mind and behavior.
I’ve also worked with physicists and molecular biologists at the Resonance Science Foundation to study quantum coherence and vibrational modes of neural molecular structures that access the spacetime field of consciousness, as well as how consciousness is produced through the geometrical, self-organizing, and information feedback systems of spacetime itself.
I hold a master’s degree in Transpersonal Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, with a specialization in Neurophenomenology and Consciousness. I’m also currently nearing the completion of my PhD, where I’ve been investigating the societal implications of the leadership styles of the Wellness Technology industry, and how it relates to avoiding the imminent existential and catastrophic risks we are currently faced with globally. In this novel research, I am asking, what does it mean to be an executive leader in this industry while living in a crisis-aware world?
I have been a meditator and yogi for nearly two decades, with training in most of the primary contemplative wisdom traditions. Currently I am a student of DzogsChen and Mahamudra Buddhism. I am also a long time student of the Trans-Himalayan teachings of the Theosophy Society, thanks to my Aunt, Dr. Barb Briner, who was my first teacher. She has a legacy body of work out of her Institute for BioEnergy studies and at the University of Michigan, which revolutionized specific aspects of the Trans-Himalayan teachings globally.
Though I have training in a diverse background of a variety of traditions, I teach and work with clients from a nondogmatic and research-based approach, whereby, I emphasize the most recent research in meditation and neuroplasticity yet with a deep reverence to the cultural roots.
In addition to coaching and teaching, I am at the onset of the Central Pillar project, a 501c3 think tank. The formalization of this organization is focused on humane and ethical uses of Wellness Technology in the face of emerging new human rights issues arising from the intersection of big data and AI with human cognition.
Central Pillar, and my general passion for the humane use of Wellness Technologies is an outgrowth of the advising and consulting work I have engaged since 2015. I’ve consulted and advised companies at the intersection of consciousness and technology, focusing on the ethics of human optimization. Some of the organizations I’ve consulted include The Chopra Foundation, JIYO, the Centre for Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona, several Virtual Reality companies and many projects using MUSE, Fitbit, different EEG and HRV approaches with a variety of wearable devices and brain stimulation devices.
I am a mother to a beautiful and wise 5 year old son, who is my greatest teacher.
I have been a long-distance runner in the mountain trails of the Bay Area my whole life. I also train in ultra-distance cycling and enjoy dance, yoga and martial arts.
I stand for Stabilized Flow Leadership to support the 21st century flourishing in the wake of the polycrisis. From emergency to emergence, from survival to thriving… a new future awaits at the fingertips of our greatest leaders.

Let’s Work Together
“I am envisioning a near future, where an ecosystem of ethical technologies, coaching, therapy, medicine, and contemplative approaches are harmoniously brought together in integrity to both flatten the curve of human suffering and reconnect us to nature. A future where a deeper understanding of what it means to be human is supported and cherished.
A future where this type of support is affordable and accessible for everyone, everywhere. A new era is well underway, where freedom and equality in wellness will shine through the efforts of collaborative innovation.”
