Paul E. Dennison, a world authority on cognitive skills and reading achievement, introduced the Brain Gym program in the mid-1980s. Today, the Brain Gym activities and balances are used in homes, schools, and businesses in more than 80 countries. In this inspiring addition to the Brain Gym series, Dr. Dennison shares his vision of children and adults learning in the way that is most natural: through movement. Dennison tells how he overcame his own learning challenges and discovered how stress can inhibit comprehension. Through personal stories, he simplifies the latest in neuroscience as it relates to learning. Dennison identifies the physical skills of learning that help learners shift from trying to doing their best. The case histories included show how people of all ages use the Brain Gym activities to learn, relax, remember, create, and achieve personal goals; the book also covers such unique Edu-K concepts as PACE, noticing, and the Three Dimensions of Learning. Descriptions of many of the Brain Gym activities are included.

Review:

Take the time to read.....an amazing story! - Elizabeth

This wonderfully readable book is full of heart. Its amazing stories of transformation and potentiality give a deeper understanding of the Brain Gym balance process from its originator, and a look into a most remarkable man who has overcome many obstacles and stands as a light of hope to the world. --Carla Hannaford, biologist and author of Smart Moves: Why Learning Is Not All in Your Head (from the Foreword)

Paul Dennison struggled with learning difficulties. His brain and learning system were out of sync with the language-based regimen we call school. Like Alexander and Feldenkrais, Paul found in his own body a way of awakening true intelligence. Brain Gym and Me is the rich, personal, and enlightening story of this discovery and how it can help every child and adult to reach and maintain their optimum potential. --Michael Mendizza, Touch the Future Foundation, coauthor with Joseph Chilton Pearce of Magical Parent, Magical Child: The Art of Joyful Parenting

Paul Dennison's story of Brain Gym is an important book about the movement activities everyone can do for themselves to derive immediate benefit. People who do the Brain Gym activities soon notice changes in themselves and in those with whom they share the information. Reading this book will encourage parents and teachers to tell students that learning can be easy and can be a pleasure. This work can change our educational system, and I urge everyone - especially teachers and administrators - to make use of the safe and effective tools in this book. We need these simple and low-cost methods in all our educational institutions, from those for early childhood to facilities for senior citizens. --John F. Thie, DC, author, Touch for Health: A Practical Guide to Natural Health with Acupressure Touch
