Author, TEDx speaker and meditation advocate, Vanessa Potter became a “human guinea-pig” for science when an extraordinary experience changed the course of her life. After spending 16 years as an award-winning producer, fate intervened In October 2012 when Vanessa suddenly found herself temporarily blind and paralysed following a neurological illness. A deep curiosity to better understand the mechanics of her mind propelled her down a new, science-communication path. A number of science-art collaborations with Cambridge neuroscientists led to an immersive EEG exhibition. Vanessa publishes her second book, Finding Her Right Mind: One Woman’s Experiment to put Meditation to the Test in April 2021 through Welbeck. She lives in London, UK with her husband and two children.

 

  • How did Vanessa lose sight in 2012 and what did that lead her to experiment with and tackle problems like sleep, anxiety and stress?

 

  • Specific sleep issues are based upon triggers. What are triggers? How might it be unique to each person? How is this linked to trust?

 

  • What was Vanessa’s sleep experiment? What did she learn from this experiment where she recorded live brain activity as she explored self hypnosis and mindfulness?

 

  • How might someone use bad sleep as a means to investigate and tease out those hidden and unhelpful beliefs?

 

  • Using self hypnosis for insomnia before potentially triggering events had incredible results but it also did not fully resolve Vanessa’s sleep issues. What did it teach her?

 

  • With all these experiments that she has done on herself which also provides us with evidence based discoveries in the field of self hypnosis, what does she share for all of us who are struggling with poor sleep?

 

  • What did she learn from her discoveries and finding some profound realisations regarding different modalities including Vipassana, Buddhist meditation, mantra, TM, psychedelics, hypnosis, breath work, kundalini yoga, and mindfulness?

 

  • What did the psychedelics do for her mind?

 

  • When it came to sleep, she found that one of these was the clear winner. How can someone use this?
