Ariel Garten

CoFounder & Chief Evangelist Officer

Ariel Garten is a neuroscientist, inventor, and artist turned entrepreneur. After launching a clothing line that opened Toronto Fashion Week and starting her own psychotherapy practice, Ariel had the idea to create a wellness tool that combined meditation and technology. With a desire to understand the self, from both scientific and artistic perspectives, Ariel went to work with BCI technology in the lab of Dr. Steve Mann that led her to co-found Muse®, the brain sensing meditation headband. Muse® quickly became the fastest growing consumer neurotechnology device with millions of meditation sessions logged worldwide. Today, Ariel is on a mission to bring easy-to-use and accessible wellness tools to people everywhere, helping them interact with the world directly with their brain.

Empowering Youth Through Wellness & a Better Understanding of our Brains with Ariel Garten of InteraXon

Our young generations are strong and capable of limitless possibilities, but if Ariel Garten were to guess, most of them wouldn’t agree. The voices in their heads and constant comparison of themselves to others on social media try to hold them back from being their true, brilliant selves and reaching their full potential. After learning that 85% of the world is suffering from low self-esteem, Ariel knew she needed to utilize her background in neuroscience to do something about it to help young people develop healthy habits around wellbeing. Ariel has spent the past decade building a technology that gives real-time feedback on the brain, which is now helping hundreds of thousands gain control over their mind to find one’s self. Ariel will share how technology and wellness practices like meditation can empower young people to overcome negativity and fear to understand their purpose and create a more progressive generation driving change.
