A unique approach to the science of well-being 

"The best moments in life occur when a person's body and mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile.” 

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Mind-Set Framework is an innovative research and consultancy offering a holistic approach to well-being, focused on the unique link between mental well-being and the neuroscience of mind-body philosophies. It is the result of years of experience in neuroscientific research and martial arts practice. 


The Mind-Set Framework offers a variety of activities aimed at promoting mental well-being for both individuals and organizations.  

Why Mind-Set Framework?

The Expertise

Dr. Guy Shpak, a neuroscientist and a lifelong martial artist, combines a profound understanding of the human brain's physiology and mind-body practices to distill complex neuroscience principles into accessible and practical activities.

The Interactive experience

To achieve a truly meaningful learning experience, creating a comprehensive experience is essential. An embodied type of learning that stimulates your mind and body is the most effective way to create long-lasting changes, and all Mind-Set activities are designed according to this principle.

The unique approach

What makes Mind-Set Framework unique is seeing the neuroscientific process behind our movements, emotions, and social interactions, and seeing mind-body principles in neuroscientific concepts. Once you adopt this holistic view, the world is filled with new possibilities.


The Customized Solutions

No two individuals or organizations are the same, and any effective intervention must take that into account. All mind-Set Framework activities are personally tailored to your needs and desired goals, from the theoretical content to specific exercises. Whether it's promoting mental resilience, analyzing physiological matrices, or supporting social cohesion, Mind-Set programs are adapted to meet your unique requirements.

"Guy is a charismatic teacher with a deep understanding of his subject. He can deliver a talk about neurosciences or disabling an assailant with equal passion and expertise. He brings a “no bullsh*t” martial arts attitude to science, and a scientific outlook to martial arts, thereby enhancing both for those lucky enough to work with him."
