Brain Workshop™ Whole-Brain Exercises- Use Mind Power and Movement to Change Your Brain
Brain Workshop™ Mind and Movement Exercises for Whole-Brain Function and Brain Health make it really possible to change the structure and function of the brain. By training your mind (mindfulness) and movement that involves whole-body integrated movement, you can change your brain. Susan A. Matthews, using decades of experience, combines the ancient secrets of Tai Chi with cutting-edge science to produce a powerful system which you can use to tap into the power of the mind and movement to change the way you think and feel, to reverse age-related changes in the brain, to rehabilitate and regain lost function after stroke or brain injury. Integrate these ancient Tai Chi principles to maximize any exercise for improving brain health and brain function and to maximize mind-body connection. Two-volume set $39.95
One: Integrating Neuroscientific Principles is mostly lecture
that presents an introduction to how the brain processes information and,
using that information, how to use specific patterns of movement to activate
and create new neural pathways in the brain. Learn how we use mental practice
and visualization to tap into the power of training the mind to affect
mental, and physical, well being, and even to repair brain injury.
Brain Workshop™ Visualizations Set- 3 videos
As a neuroscientist, I consider these three visualizations the most important information I teach. They are extremely beneficial to the brain and nervous system. This information came from spirit, and from all my wonderful teachers. I have given these dvds as gifts to many customers who have bought other titles from MastersFromChina so I offer all three for only $4.95. If you wish to write to me I will send them to you. Please refer to the Study Guide in the menu bar at left, especially the Relaxation and Meditation page.
Brain Circulation Visualization video is an extension of the non-moving meditation that guides you to fill the brain and body with energy, light and love. This visualization/meditation practice brings spiritual energy and earth energy to the heart, profoundly affects sense of well being calming the nervous system, reduces fear and anger, and trains the mind to bring healing energy to specific affected areas of the body. This practice benefits sleep and reduces stress, anxiety and depression. This daily bedtime practice is step one for everything. 19 min.
Get Balance Visualization is an extension and expansion of the visualization on Brain Workshop focusing on Zhong Ding central equilibrium line. Focus on Zhong Ding is a major moving meditation (mindfulness practice). It creates superior balance. It creates a mental focus that reduces energy expenditure by increasing stability when walking or hiking. It increases one's connection with energy of the earth. 37 min.
Walking Visualization Meditative walking with zhong ding. 23 min.
More about Brain Workshop™ Whole-Brain Exercises- Using Mind Power and Movement to Change Your Brain
These two volumes contain elements of Brain Workshop training for speeding neural repair and plasticity in patients with movement disability such as those who are recovering from stroke, brain injury, or who have progressive neurological symptoms as seen in Parkinson's Disease.
They also contains tools and specific movement principles for therapists to use to aid in learning and memory acquisition. For example, speech and reading therapists can incorporate rhythmic movement as a right-brain activity to facilitate left-brain repatterning.
this mind-body integration training uses movement synchronization and
rhythm coupled with mental practice that effects both physical and mental
