(Kanya Likanasudh)

Module Description:

This module will allow the possibility of opening up new horizons and pathways toward healing and transformation.   Three helpful components of new discoveries in neuroscience are:  1. Attachment Theory 2. Trauma 3. Understanding of the function of prefrontal lobe in relation to the flow state, which is an optimum learning state, and the foundation of transformation.

This module is experiential with time to practice as well as shining light on background theories to deepen participants’ understanding.  The focal point of all is the Original Mind or the seat of consciousness that will bring forth light of understanding and compassion. Integrating neuroscience, psychology of selves and cultivating of mindfulness into our biographies will bring about inner transformation into our daily lives.
