Description: This class provides an overview of a new paradigm in health and healing. Learn about the rapidly growing field of Body-Mind Science through understanding the brain, how the brain communicates with the body, and how this communication can make us sick and help us heal. I will present a basic introduction to understanding the brain, which will allow you to come away being able to describe how the brain works to your family and friends. We will explore how life experience affects our brain and bodies, and how stress and unresolved traumas can make us sick. We will also explore how understanding the brain allows us to unlock its healing power. You will learn lessons about how to overcome challenging life experiences from observing videos of wild animals, reviewing ancient healing models, as well as from new studies emerging from neuropsychology – all in an easy-to-understand and practical way. You will also learn basic mindfulness and body awareness techniques which will help you use your brain as an ally in your everyday life.
