Hundreds of educators from throughout the US will be coming to ASU on Sunday, August 23, to explore new ways to engage their students. While a lot of attention has been given to physical threats, like childhood obesity, there is also a need to focus on how to increase mental capabilities of youth. ASU’s College of Design North in Tempe, Arizona, is looking forward to hosting Ilchi Lee, the Founder of Brain Education and a best-selling author, and other high-level speakers, who will address the needs for, and solutions to, train both the body and the brain at the Phoenix Brain Education Conference.
Some Phoenicians have already been exposed to brain education methods at the Body & Brain center for Yoga and Taichi on Warner Road in Tempe, Arizona, which was, also, founded by Lee. The center uses a five-step process, consisting of warm up exercises, stretching, brainwave vibrations to activate one’s core energy, meditation, and then more stretching.
“What sets us apart from other yoga centers,” says Linda Yoonjin, Public Relations Manager for Brain Education and a teacher at the Center, “ Is that we incorporate mental stimulation, as well as physical fitness to help heal both the body and the brain.” The Center provides workshops that help people deal with their emotions, as well as yoga and Taichi classes.
Yoonjin was persuaded to get involved in brain education, when she witnessed her mother’s 180-degree transformation into a bright, happy, confident and healthy person, as a result of the methods used in brain education. “We specialize in natural healing. People have all the tools their bodies need. Instead of promoting teas and supplements, we teach people how to heal their own physical, mental and emotional issues.”
This is the first conference in Phoenix. There have been other brain education workshops in California, Hawaii, Korea, New Zealand and other sites throughout the world. The conferences are a partnership among Body & Brain, Power Brain Education, Earth Citizen Organization (ECO) and other organizations. The commonality among them is the inspiration of Lee, who has a headquarters in Sedona, Arizona.
“Empowering youth through brain education creates a more dynamic world,” said Lee. “Our Brain Education Conference fuses scientific findings and spiritual methods of brain activation to create immeasurable results in classrooms around the world.”
