PRESENTATIONS

Getting Great Grades

 

Optimal health practices support the learning process on all levels, at all ages. And it's not just about boosting brain power, it's also a matter of building study habits that are more effective. This presentation explores the full spectrum of inputs that result in the best mental concentration, focus, endurance, mood, and learning.

"Sparking" Great Grades

 

A sharp mind in a strong body. Based on the work of Dr. John Ratey and other researchers, this session provides the practical application of exercise to the process of academic performance. Welcome to the new stereotype of the "smart jock", and how you can stimulate the growth of new brain cells before learning by working out intelligently.

Mental Strategies

 

From study skills, to time management, to powerful visualization exercises, to memory techniques (both classical and modern) this presentation digs deep into the methods needed to perform at your best academically. These are the techniques used by top students, actors, and memory competition champions.

Mindfulness for Mental Maximization

 

Studies show that as little as ten minutes of basic meditation results in improved intelligence, mood, and creativity... among other benefits. This presentation provides an overview of the many different approaches to this ancient and cross-culturally universal system of self-inquiry, and teaches students how to get the most out of their meditation practice.

POETRY THEATER (tour de force)

 

"Oh for a muse of fire that would ascend the brightest heaven of invention... there is no frigate like a book to take us lands away... and in my heart, Andromeda..." The Art of Collecting Poetry comes to life in this demonstration of memorization and theatrical delivery (along with musical accompaniment). Not to be missed.

Wellness specialist and memory training expert Brian Allison presents a program designed to instruct, inspire,  motivate and maximize the learning potential of students young and old.
