Train Your Brain I & II

You shouldn’t feel that visualizing the future means you don’t accept the now. It is in fact the opposite. As we hold in our mind both our peace with the present and dream of our future self, our desire shoots into the ether where the universe truly does align to help create it. Train Your Brain, is a creative visualization workshop that dissects this idea of the power of attraction, building on it and calling to attention where previous explanations have been lacking. Level One incorporates the yoga philosophy of Patanjali’s sutras and other scientific sources to explain how the brain works and how we can use its functioning to bring us our desires. Level Two delves deeper answering more specific questions, and offering a chance for vision boarding. Both include short meditations and hand to paper writing.

"I loved that it was a small group, and therefore very personal, with people sharing their experiences and concerns. It was a four hour long workshop, but I was never bored, because it went from lecture, to sharing and discussing, to guided mediation and activities. It’s a class I’ll be thinking about for awhile!"

"I found it really helpful to hear the process of jumping back/forward/through narrating and modeled and to learn key mental cues to give myself in my practice every day. Now, I think about putting weight into my hands and imagining my feet ‘levitating’ for a moment each time I jump forward. I also found it helpful to have the skill of jumping through broken down further, so I could advance my practice of it, even though I’m not yet able to jump through all the way. This has really changed my practice and given me a deeper appreciation for how much work it takes to build seemingly small parts of my practice."
