Boost Your Brain for Peak Performance
Most people work on building up and boosting their financial assets. But how many people work on building up and boosting their greatest asset: their brain?
The emerging field of neuroplasticity has shown that the brain can change its own structure and function. It can grow new cells, new circuits and new connections in response to what we do, what we think and how we behave.
We are far more than passive victims of our genes: we play an active role in how our brains develop throughout our lives. However most of us are yet to realise the enormous personal power this gives us.
For the brain to stay healthy and operate at its best, we need the right nutrition, rest, stimulation, challenge and reward. Most importantly, we also need to take charge of our thinking because our thoughts play an integral role in wiring our brains for optimal performance.
Learning Outcomes & Specific Take Aways
This presentation distils the essence of the neuroplastic revolution and gives immediately implementable, practical suggestions to improve the functioning of the brain. By applying this knowledge, we can:
- sharpen our thinking
- improve concentration and memory – at any age
- tap into brain potential we never knew we had
- expand our creativity
- increase our capacity for learning and problem solving
- reduce our risk of developing depression, anxiety disorders and Alzheimer’s disease
- prevent the cognitive decline we’ve mistakenly believed was inevitable with ageing
- perform at our peak on a daily basis and achieve far more than we ever thought possible
Dr. Peta Stapleton
Emotional Freedom Techniques for Food Cravings and Emotional Eating
In 2008 Dr Peta Stapleton conducted a world first clinical trial investigating whether Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) could decrease food cravings in overweight/obese adults. We found for 96 adults EFT resulted in improvement in food cravings, the subjective power of food and craving restraint and this was maintained 12-months later. On average adults lost 5.5 kilograms (11 lbs). A recent trial of EFT versus the gold standard treatment Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) showed the EFT group lost on average 6.79kgs (15 lbs) over 12-months whereas the CBT group lost only 4.33kgs (9.54 lbs). The EFT treatment was superior for reducing anxiety and food cravings a year later.
This workshop will teach the principles of EFT and demonstrate the program outline from the research trials, so attendees can replicate themselves or with clients. It will be hands-on, experiential and you will give up a food craving during the day!
Helping Kids Tap into Success and Happiness (Including the Kid in You)
Life is full of opportunities and challenges. How a child handles those challenges can either cultivate a mindset that creates happiness and success, or one that retreats from what is possible. Tapping/EFT is a fantastic tool, for helping kids handle life more successfully and joyfully.
You want the best for the children in your life. In this engaging and experiential workshop, we will look at how to use Tapping in a variety of situations, helping your child become more resilient, thus having greater freedom to success.
And it’s not just for kids. One of the best ways to help your child to be happier and more successful is to be an effective role model. As we explore how to help kids overcome whatever might block them, we will be clearing out our internal blocks as well. (So you can benefit from this even if you don’t have kids of your own).
Dr. David Hamilton
How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body
In this workshop you will learn all about how your mind affects your body, including how the placebo effect works, how mind and emotions impact the heart and immune system, and how meditation changes brain structure.
You will also learn how visualisation alters brain circuits and how the brain doesn’t distinguish between real and imaginary.
David will also share successful strategies used by people all over the world that helped facilitate their recoveries from illness, injury, and disease and teach you the key principles involved.
Dr. Lori Leyden
Healing Ourselves, Healing Our Children, Healing Our World
Dr. Lori Leyden’s workshops and private sessions are for those committed to personal, community and global healing. Since 2007, Dr. Leyden has experienced the power of providing love and the right resources to help traumatized young people heal from the most horrific of human tragedies.
In this workshop, Lori will share her personal journey and the fundamentals of her healing work with The Grace Process and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)/Tapping. In addition, Lori will discuss insights and strategies from establishing Project LIGHT: Rwanda, the world’s first international youth healing, heart-centered leadership and economic sustainability program and collaborating with The Tapping Solution Foundation to head up the Newtown Trauma Relief and Resiliency Project, supporting those traumatized by the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Participants will experience The Grace Process and EFT/Tapping as powerful community peace building skills and strategies for creating Mind-Heart Resiliency for Australian communities.
Dr Joe Dispenza
Making Your Mind Matter
Your reality is created by beliefs and perceptions that are based on thoughts and feelings. Every time you have a thought, you make a chemical and turn on a set of circuits in your brain that produces a level of mind for you to begin to feel exactly the way you were just thinking, and then think the way you feel, and feel the way you think; and this cycle creates a state of being.
In this engaging workshop, you will learn about the epigenetic model of reality—signaling the gene ahead of the environment, choosing a future possibility, and bringing it to life in the present moment. The experience changes the circuitry in the brain and creates additional elevated emotions that cause us to come out of our resting states and produce new, long-term memories; and thus create a new future for ourselves.
