BrainChanging Institute

Brainchanging Institute logoThe BrainChanging Institute is a series of occasional small gatherings of invited colleagues (experts and explorers) to exchange ideas about BrainChanging™ for lifelong learning.

Going beyond the digital, these gatherings celebrate the connection and inspiration that come from a face-to-face conversation. Going beyond minimum requirements, these gatherings focus on the brain’s amazing potential capacity.

Fall 2010 — San Diego, California
The first gathering was held in 2010 in San Diego. About 12-15 people gathered over a weekend for a couple of meetings at a private home. Most attendees were Z-Health participants who were in town for a certification training. Discussions included what is BrainChanging? How can we keep our brains healthy?

Conor Hughes is directing this effort. You can contact him here.

Mission
The BrainChanging™ Institute is dedicated to facilitating interaction and connection with those who are interested in one of the most exciting discoveries of our lifetime — the human ability to shape our own brains and seek wellness and life-long learning.

In the words of the great neuroscientist Santigo Ramon y Cajal, the Institute helps those who wish to become “the sculptor of their own brain.”

Lifelong learning
The Institute emphasizes physical, face-to-face interaction. We are there to interact, exchange ideas, learn and get inspired.

For most of our human history, humans lived in very small, close-nit communities. Everybody knew everybody. As a result, meaningful interactions and connections between people were important. Actually, they were essential to our survival. In a digital world however, it’s easy to forget the value of face to face interaction. You know, there is a reason that we have such intricate facial expressions as we do.

We need human connection. Not digital connection. We exist and are designed to communicate. But such communication is being lost. The BrainChanging™ Institute is a place where you can find real people. People that you can talk to and communicate with. People that you can make a real, human, and visceral
connection with. In fact many people are there for this reason alone, simply to connect. And what a wonderful reason that is.

Our brains are always learning, whether we are aware of it or not. We are learning machines, but many of us just forget this. The BrainChanging Institute is a place to rekindle this inherent learning ability that lies within you. It’s a sad fact that many of us go through our entire lives without realizing what we have. But it’s definitely there. If you can walk and talk, then you have already learned skills that are far more complex than anything you will ever need or want to learn.
