A series of study groups, lectures, and workshops, by leading experts, on personal development in the way you think – training your brain, trust intuition, and “finding flow.”

“Training the Brain”
February 28 – March 1, 2014

The first of the three-lecture series is starting now – “Training the Brain,” presented by Chuck Dymer who has taught the principles of Dr. Edward de Bono for 25 years. Dr. de Bono is the father of lateral thinking and the theory that the brain does not organize thought; thought organizes the brain. Chuck will discuss ways to train the brain to enhance flexible and fluid thinking.

Study groups are meeting this week to read and discuss the Dr. de Bono’s book, How to Have a Beautiful Mind. (Go to the website and register for the study groups NOW.) The public lecture, open to all, is Friday, February 28, 7:00 pm. The follow-up workshop is Saturday, March 1, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Study groups and the lecture are free; the workshop is $50 if participating in a study group or $75 if not.
