Level 2 » Optimal Brain Organisation

  • The core objective of the course is to learn techniques and activities to enable you to discover and express your best potential, using all your senses and styles of learning and communication. You will learn the significance of sensory preferences – which eye, ear, hand, foot and style of information processing do you prefer? How does your sensory profile shape your sense of yourself, your natural skills, your challenges and how you relate to the outside world? Develop the skill to draw out this profile and understand its relevance to many areas of daily life. There are a host of practical applications: help yourself and others to enhance learning, relationships and success, manage the effects of stress and provide a sound basis for life choices, based on an awareness of natural gifts. This course is a natural and illuminating companion to the Brain Gym® 101 Foundation Course.

  • What will I learn on the course?

    The course curriculum builds on the activities and procedures of the Brain Gym 101 course. Optimal Brain Organisation takes you on a journey into sensory preferences, information processing styles and how these affect your everyday life, skills, choices and challenges. Find out how your preferred eye, ear, hand, foot and information processing style shape how you express yourself, your natural gifts and those activities which may cause you stress. The simple and profound techniques learnt on this course are a life-changing opportunity to making the best use of what you have to offer in every area of daily existence. Above all, this course brings understanding and increased awareness of a fascinating aspect of what makes you – and others – “tick”, so that each individual’s unique potential can be understood and developed.

    The activities

    The concepts

    • The positive effect on all aspects of daily life of smooth synchronisation between our eyes, ears, hands, ability to move and processing of sensory information
    • Noticing when we have an integrated sensory profile – or not – in different situations is a key to accessing  more resourceful states
    • The beneficial effect of releasing stress on accessing our inner resources and capacity to make good choices
    • Awareness and respect for our sensory preferences can increase understanding of our own and other’s behaviour
    • The model of the 3 dimensions of learning – the synthesis of sensing, feeling and thinking – can provide links and insight into our sensory profiles
    • Understanding the significance of our own sensory preferences can make us more successful in dealing with other people’s behaviour, encouraging their skills and appreciating their attitudes

    The techniques

    • The goal setting technique and achievement process (‘balance’) learnt in Brain Gym 101 is further enhanced by incorporating our sensory profiles for chosen activities and situations
    • How to experience your own sensory profile and draw out personal meaning and insight from it
    • Understanding the effect of stress on your natural gifts and challenges, based on your sensory profile
    • Practice in helping others to explore, understand and benefit from their sensory gifts and challenges
    • How to use the Edu-K techniques and activities to engage with daily life experiences with the best possible integration of our senses
