Get Sensational Attention Video

From the Body-to-the-Brain

In school we want “eyes up here, ears up here,” because we want longer and more focused attention. However, attention doesn’t just come from training the brain to focus outside of one self. Attention is a two-way street from the brain and from the body. We must teach children to be present within them selves in order to know how to be more present with others. This type of mindfulness is a science and is one of the most fundamental natures of the body in how sensation influences the brain.

Children are bundles of sensation. If you teach them awareness of these sensations then they will understand themselves better, and how they can use their body to understand how they think. Development is a function of both the body and the brain. Teach it and you will improve grades and social behavior, but more importantly you will give the children a tool that will improve their quality of happiness for years to come. We must teach children to not have all their attention focused outside of themselves to learn. This video lesson is the first step to teaching attention—a dual attention both inside one self and “out there.”
