Prepare to radically revise your notions of what the body has to do with learning and intelligence. In the last decade neuroscience, in studying how the brain works, has done a complete about-face in its accepted ideas about the mind-body connection. It is now recognized that the body, and in particular movement, is the main source of brain development.
Currently, the biggest challenge for robotics engineers is to create a machine that learns, functions and moves like humans. Their goal is to understand how the brain creates connections within its neural network. The focus has been redirected toward the body and the senses as the source of how information enters the brain. What science is discovering is that the quality of movement determines the quality of learning. Science is making great inroads in its understanding of the brain, but society is getting left behind.
Society functions as if we learn from what we think and say. The body is either a tool to get our brain from point A to B, or it is a machine that we “fine tune” for particular performance skills. We must catch up with science, but how? Five elements are the foundation of all learning. This book shows you how to integrate five essential elements into all that you do to reach your full potential in any endeavor. Reconnect your mind with your body the way you evolved to function and transform your life physically, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
