Embodied Cognition emerged in mid-nineties from work of many pioneering scientists. My favorites among them are Antonio Damasio, Candace Pert and Guy Claxton.
The principle of Embodied Cognition is that your brain is in the body, not only as an organ but as a communication network extending throughout your body.
You mind is an outcome of what happens in the body, not the director of the body. And your emotions, feelings and behaviors happen in the body. That's why it's so hard to change your feelings and behaviors with your mind!
Emotions/feelings and reason are not opposites. Instead, reason NEEDS emotions to function. That's why rejecting and denying your emotions in counterproductive!
In Brain Upgrade, I have been applying these principles in a practical way for over 20 years. That's why my clients can make extraordinarily rapid breakthroughs.
Cutting edge neuroscience: Embodied Cognition
In just two months, I have handled business, money and a relationship! You can't get those kinds of results anywhere!
P.F., Social Entrepreneur
In just over a year, I switched careers from real estate to being a programmer. I learned coding and solving coding problems; passed a test to attend the school of my choice; finished the program and just got my first job! I absolutely couldn't do it without Paula.
I thought a project will take me 7 hours, but after just one session with Paula, it took only 1 hour!
