The brain is not the main tool that dictates how we react to life. The body dictates a lot of the action steps we take in life by processing information through its cells and skin memories. Feng Shui shows us how. Each time a feng shui gathering occurs where education is the focus the Feng Shui Institute of America opens the door for new science-based discoveries to be presented by graduates of our course.
Sylvia is a practicing consultant and Feng Shui Master. Her passion is the research and teaching end of the spectrum. Sylvia will introduce a new way to look at feng shui from the consumer’s perspective. Embodied Cognition is the science she speaks of. It is about how human performance is dictated by various cognitive tasks such as reasoning or judgment as well as the our body’s interactions with the environment and our own assumptions about the world that are built into our body and the brain.
The idea that the mind is not only connected to the body but that the body influences the mind, is one of the more counter-intuitive ideas in cognitive science and its tenets speak loudly to the concepts that practicing feng shui professionals know well.
According to an article in Psychology Today, the brain, while important, is not the only resource we have available to us to generate behavior. Instead, the form of our behavior emerges from the real-time interaction between a nervous system in a body with particular capabilities and an environment that offers opportunities for behavior and information about those opportunities.
Sylvia will decipher this science for attendees and provide a case scenario so that practitioners can see how it is applied in the field.
