While scientists are working hard to try and explain how our brains work, we are a long way from having all the answers. We will explore some of the ideas and try out some techniques for understanding our thinking a little better. From the basics of the electro-chemical processes to how we can practise positive thinking and reinforce our thinking pathways, we will examine some of the ways we can be influenced and how to sift through the enormous amount of information we are exposed to everyday.
Having flown aeroplanes for the last 20 years, Rowan found herself without gainful employment at the beginning of the pandemic. She has redesigned her life from the ground up and has now knitted herself a new career drawing upon her experience as a trainer and facilitator, her interests in psychology and learning, and her appreciation of living with the day-to-day quirks and challenges of raising two kids with dual or multiple exceptionality in a high learning potential family. She is now freelancing as a facilitator, trainer, resourcer, life, employment and personal development coach and recruiter.
