Dr Caroline Leaf on How to Detox your Brain in 5 Steps
Free Online Session, Monday 1st June, 3pm
Dr Caroline Leaf, author, international speaker, communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist, shares her insight on why we spend so much time detoxing our bodies through different diets and exercise routines, but we tend to forget to detox our most important organ: the brain.
So how do we detox our brains? Through our minds. We can overcome past experiences that are holding us back and we can overcome toxic thinking patterns that are keeping us from living up to our full potential by learning to harness the power of our minds to change the structure of our brains.
Dr Leaf spent the last 30 years developing a mind-based technique, based on the science of thoughts and memory formation, to help detox and rewire our brains. Her 5-step process only takes 7-16 minutes a day, and in 21 days you will have started rewiring your brain for success.
