Two Brattleboro residents, one Dummerston resident and one Putney resident have put their minds together to help other people keep their minds sharp.
latest brain research has scientifically revealed that our mind-body connections can have a positive influence on our health. A new class offered by NEPNI, the Northeast Psycho-Neuro-Immunology Institute, explores evidence-based brain research while offering techniques and practices to “Train Your Brain” for the purpose of healing and memory enhancement. Individuals with concerns about memory and brain function as well as professionals looking to diversify and broaden their practices can all benefit from these classes.
In "Train the Brain to Retain," participants learn to increase memory by using tools proven through neuro-science. The group explores ten essential points for optimum brain health through activities, exercises, discussion, and resources in neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to change). This 7-week course, with a potential 3-week extension, meets Tuesdays from 2-4 pm beginning September 17th in Brattleboro.
Instructors: Heather Taylor, MEd, of Putney is a longtime enthusiast of holistic healing and a veteran teacher of children and adults. She integrates strategies for studying neuroplasticity with fun, experiential learning. Michael Gigante, PhD, of Brattleboro has been a psychotherapist in private practice for the past
thirty years. He came upon PNI serendipitously through his own health issues and has since practiced and taught PNI in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Russia. Heather and Michael will be joined by other NEPNI core faculty, Rupa Cousins of Dummerston and Michael Bosworth of Brattleboro, as well as guest lecturers.
Class size is limited to 12 people and the program costs $210.00. To learn more please visit the website www.nepni.org or contact Dr. Michael Gigante at 802-254-8032 or Rupa Cousins at 802-387-5276.
