  • BrainLab & Sensory Diet Workshop

    About Workshop:

    BrainLab & Sensory Diet Workshop combines the elements of Right Brain Education, SEL (Social-Emotional Learning) focused on self-regulation and self-relaxation methods. We will instruct children on social-emotional competencies but also show them how to enhance their overall learning and creative capacities.

    Right Brain controls nonverbal communication, feeling and emotions, creative thinking, imagination, visualization, and memorization. Also, the latest discoveries about brain neuroplasticity confirm the existence of adaptive brain techniques – the ability of the brain to create, eliminate, reorganize and repair neural circuits. It means that sensory substitution, replacement, development, and greater use of other senses are possible in case one sense is switched off. These discoveries give hope that we can change our basic potential and develop our gifts even more if we put our intention to it. Research confirms that in order to be able to learn, we need to have our emotions in check and to be in a relaxed state of mind.

    BrainLab & Sensory Diet Workshop is a mix of exercises and methods that are presented in a fun way and adapted to children. We use Right Brain Education programs (for children from 6 to 15 years old), Alpha Brain Waves Music (sound of a certain frequency influences the work of the brain and promote relaxation), positive affirmations, visualization, Alphabet Yoga, and Mindfulness exercises adapted to children, Double Doodle drawing sessions, etc.

    Purpose:

    • Help children develop cognitive abilities, emotional stability, creativity, ability to concentrate, memorization, a sense of observation, and intuition
    • Enhance a positive attitude towards themselves and the world around them
    • Get core learning benefits such as photographic memory, speed reading, language mastery, super creativity
    • Brain Gym – synchronized movements for both sides of the body that coordinates and improves the balance of the Left and Right Brain Hemispheres; enhance optimal brain functioning
    • Eye Gym – eye gymnastics that strengthens and relaxes the eye muscles and thus improves vision, focus and concentration
    • Alpha Waves Music: music that helps children to relax, concentrate and focus more easily
    • Introduction to the “grammar of emotions” with the help of emotion cards and other materials that we use in SEL
    • Positive affirmations and visualization exercises adapted to children
    • Dance creates a cheerful and stimulating atmosphere and environment for children
    • Short animated movies increase the level of motivation, empathy and promote positive values.
    • Breathing exercises: blood oxygenation; oxygen goes to the brain and helps to clear the brain and increase concentration
    •  Relaxation exercises: in today’s world of excessive digitalization and fast-paced rhythm, the basics of yoga and mindfulness help children to calm down, get to know each other better and improve their ability to observe
    • Blindfolded activities: activate other senses that are neglected and strengthen the intuition on which the child begins to rely more
    • Group games create a sense of harmony among the workshop participants

    • Possible formats of workshops: Half a day Workshop, Whole day Workshop, Design Your Own Workshop, and 8-week Long Workshop (preferably on weekends ( 1 weekend 4h30 Saturday and Sunday ), other weekends 3 h Saturday or Sunday; total 30 hours)

    • Encourage and motivate children to do the exercises, but let them progress at their own pace
    • It’s advisable to keep a diary during the workshop

    Additional information:

    + The Right Brain Education is about developing other competencies in children like having more sensitivity, imagination, and creativity other than academic achievement alone. The “Right Brain Education” Schools are opening up especially in the East. The three pioneer and most established right brain schools bear the names of their founders: Glenn Doman, Shichida Method, and Heguru.
    We use Wink Right Brain Education Program Package created by Pamela Sue Hickein, who believes that heart-based playful learning is vital not only for right brain development but for lifelong health and happiness as well. When practices, It’s more of a way of living than just a way of learning. Pamela has used these methods with children with dyslexia, dyspraxia, speech delays, ADD, ADHD, and various forms of autism. She has also successfully blended right-brain techniques with homeschool curricula and gifted learning programs. Pamela has been working with teachers and educators for almost 30 years and has written numerous books and learning curricula, including :
    Right Brain Education: Changing the World One Heart at a Time
    TweedleWink Gentle Early Right Brain Enrichment Program: Prenatal to Preschool
    Right Brain Activation: A Right Brain Tune-Up For Adults
    + Wink Program Overview includes :
    Alpha Relaxation,

    +The Alfa Brain Waves:
    Dr. Roger W. Sperry, Nobel Prize winner 1981, received the Award for his discoveries on the functional specialization of the cerebral hemispheres. (https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/medicine/1981/sperry/facts/) The brain waves show the synchronized electronic activity of neurons. Their frequency indicates the frequency of external stimuli. All our activities, or states such as sleep, rest and relaxation, solving complex mathematical problems or discussions, are accompanied by different brain waves. There are four most important ranges of brain waves: beta, alpha, theta, and delta.
    Alpha: light relaxation and creativity
    Beta: alertness and active state
    Delta: sleep and deep meditation; deep regeneration and healing
    Theta: deep relaxation
    In some studies, 30 patients were on 5 Hz Theta sessions and experienced a state of relaxation ( between 80 -100 percent ) after only 5 minutes as well as less pain. Eight patients have done blood analysis before and after the sessions and blood test results showed that their beta-endorphin levels increased by 10 to 50 percent. Also, challenging your brain to get into a theta state for just a few minutes a day seems to have huge benefits: strengthens the immune system, boosts creativity, and challenges psychological well-being states in humans.
