Positive Neuroplasticity

Peace at your fingertips

Explore the Wonders of Neuroplasticity

When I was in graduate school we were taught that by adulthood we had the amount of brain cells and neurons that we would get for our lifetime and that our best strategy was not to lose them. Now, through multiple avenues of research, including brain scans, we know that neurons and cells can continue to grow in the brain and nervous system.

We can actually see changes in the brain. When we learn a new skill, behavior or way of thinking the cells in our brains actually begin to reorganize. With enough practice, new neural pathways are formed. Our choices and opportunities actually influence brain change.

Feel Safe. Navigate Stress. Create Resilience.

We can teach our brain and nervous system to become less stressed, less stuck in overthinking, and more at ease. Developing these skills can lead to feeling calm, resilient, and even improve your physical and mental health. This is the practice of positive neuroplasticity. There is a significant body of science showing that we can develop these skills.

This doesn’t mean nothing bad will ever happen in your world. Friendships change, grief happens, unexpected life events challenge our abilities to cope. This course can be part of your healing process or it can help you improve your ability to navigate future challenges.

The Positive Neuroplasticity course is an educational program for the general public, with special benefits for coaches, counselors, educators, healthcare professionals, and human resources trainers. The Positive Neuroplasticity course is NOT psychotherapy, nor treatment for any physical or mental health condition. Participants take responsibility for their own experience in the program. The Positive Neuroplasticity course could be a useful resource for normal range experiences of anxiety, blue mood, stress, loneliness, and interpersonal conflicts, including for people in psychotherapy for these concerns. If you are engaging in psychotherapy while engaging this program, please tell your therapist. They are likely to notice changes in your abilities that improve your growth in therapy. Last, if you have serious psychological issues or a history of suicidality, complex trauma, psychosis, or other severe mental health issues, you should consider not participating in the Positive Neuroplasticity course without your own individual therapist as it could stir things up for you. The course isn’t designed to provide that level of individual support. Your difficulties can improve and we want you to have the best opportunity for growth and resilience.

We believe no one is too wounded to improve. It is really just about finding the practices that work for you. The Positive Neuroplasticity course certainly has the potential to be of value to anyone – regardless of their history.

If the program has not been used, or only the first week of lessons used participants will have had a good opportunity to evaluate whether this type of program is something they are interested at this time. There is a 7 day refund period.
