Ataraxy is the name of Nigel's thought leadership practice through which he provides Training, Coaching and Mentoring programmes that teach people how to be their own 'mind mechanic', teaching you to understand the way your mind, your ancestry and your experiences have formed the person you are. Then you learn to apply simple techniques and tools to make changes, improve your ability to make choices and improve your outcomes.
This is about teaching the fundamentals of how your mind works which allows you to better manage your own thinking and therefore outcomes. You learn to apply a new level of analysis and understanding to your own thoughts, habits and perceptions of the world - without resorting to re-aligning shakra's and burning incense - through gaining a simple and practical understanding of the biological mechanics and operation of the brain, body and mind.
We all know the fundamentals for building a healthy body - eat well and exercise. With this approach you learn the fundamentals of being mentally and emotionally fit for authentic happiness, personal decision making and productivity. Like going to a physio for your mind, you will learn how to train yourself, your thoughts and habits. Like any other form of fitness, you exert effort and strive and over time your brain responds. You can literally rewire your brain to enable you to get the most out of your experience of the world.
Nigel's unique experience means he has the ability to make these abstract ideas fun, real, practical and most of all USEFUL for people. You get a genuine shift in thinking and an understanding that will benefit you for the rest of your life.
No mysticism, no group hugs, no fads - just using science to understand the self and make positive changes "I teach people how to pay more attention to their own thoughts and make better choices. Attention is the key to free will and change."
The Ataraxy Value Model
The Ataraxy Value Model describes the evolution in the way you think as you progress through the education and skill development in the programmes.
It demonstrates the progressive stages of development as you build the skills to respond to events as they occur.
The two foundational skills you will learn and practice are Attention and Volition: Attention Learn to attend to and focus on the right things. Volition learn how to exert effort and strive. Learn how to behave differently to the way you feel often enough so that the new behaviour becomes habit.
Value to you...... The Ataraxy Value Model is not expressed in dollar or Euros, or any other physical property. The real currency in the Ataraxy Value Model is how often your habits are aligned to your chosen way of being.
