Last Saturday, April 9, 2016, the Sedona Meditation Center and ChangeYourEnergy.com hosted the Unleash Your Power Brain workshop with Ilchi Lee and Dave Beal at the Sedona Creative Life Center in Sedona, Arizona. The workshop launched Ilchi Lee's new book, The Power Brain: Five Steps to Upgrading Your Brain Operating System.
This book is his latest, and most comprehensive, on his Brain Education self-development method. It includes both the principles behind using your brain to its full potential, as well as illustrated brain-body exercises that integrate the various parts of the brain and fortify existing neural connections while making new ones.
The 250 people who attended filled the seats, stood at the back, and overflowed into the room outside. It was a workshop in which, as one participant said, "Normally you come and you sit, and you're by yourself, learning for yourself. And here, you come and interact with everyone, and you're learning as a community. And you learn about being a community by learning as a community."
In his talk on “Five Steps to a Power Brain,” Dave Beal led the audience in exercises to experience the five steps of Brain Education. The participants found themselves playing games, laughing and smiling, feeling empowered, and meeting new people.
Ilchi Lee kept the laughter going in his talk on “How to Upgrade Your Brain Operating System.” He injected humor while he differentiated between the natural intelligence of the human brain and the artificial intelligence of robots by pointing out that humans have the ability to both empathize with others and communicate our emotions and awareness. The scope of his talk ranged from the individual brain to the collective consciousness of humanity. He said each human being is intrinsically valuable and has the ability and responsibility to take care of the planet.
Workshop participants came from in and around Sedona, as well as the Phoenix metropolitan area and as far away as Hawaii. The event was also broadcast live on Ilchi Lee’s Facebook page.
A copy of The Power Brain was given to each participant. The book will be released in stores on April 15th, but can be bought now on ChangeYourEnergy.com.
Dave Beal is the Program Director and Head National Trainer of Power Brain Education. They have introduced Brain Education to 400 schools around the United States, training 10,000 teachers and 30,000 students over the past eight years.
Brain Education is also being taught in more than 600 Body & Brain Yoga centers in 10 countries, as well as in health clubs, community centers, and large corporations. It is used by athletes, actors, doctors, and even by the United Nations.
To train people in Brain Education, Ilchi Lee has established the International Brain Education Association, two universities that study and teach Brain Education, and the Benjamin School for Character Education—an alternative one-year high school program that uses Brain Education to help youth find their confidence, solidify their values, and discover their dreams. He's also established the Korea Institute of Brain Science to pursue further research on Brain Education, and the Earth Citizens Organization to train leaders who use Brain Education to empower their communities to live in harmony with the earth.
Those who want further experience in Brain Education can join a three-day, two-night retreat in June at Sedona Mago Retreat with Dave Beal and Ilchibuko Todd.
