The Energy Factor for Educators

Click the link above to learn more about the course. Click the image below to get the course details and to sign up.

Stress, Energy, and Empowering access to the Growth Mindset. An inspired solution to the learning process in the modern world. An application of Chinese Martial Arts, human development, current neuroscience and stress research that empowers the practitioner. It addresses the pressure to efficiently learn and teach, the sense of being overwhelmed by academic demands, the fear of failure, and the imperative of success. By revealing the hidden energy demands of stress and connecting the student with A.E.Q. energy, this system empowers the student beyond stress "management' to unlock the Dynamic mind (Hippocampus) and grow the "Growth mindset" with A.E.Q. Energy. Without this knowledge, the "Growth mindset" remains another ideal state. And like others, is limited by the real and inescapable demands of the learning process and the education system.

So there it is. Success comes down to energy demand. Learning without managing energy is like trying to drive a car cross-country without know about fuel and refuelingyou are going to run out of fuel and when that happens you must push the mind up the mountains of learning, or give up. Neither option is either fun nor efficient.
