Patt Lind-Kyle, author of Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain, she’ll be talking about neuroplasticity, the ability for the brain to create new connections and even grow new cells. We will also explore the various brain states we can enter, and what these different states can enable us to do. The fact is that you can teach your old brain new tricks!
