Cognitive Yoga -Redeux

Cognitive Yoga will be published on February 15th,  2014, available through Amazon. Cognitive Yoga is packed with useful strategies for any teacher, coach or counselor who works with groups of young adults. It supports teachers who have to transform, bored, bewildered, angry kids into curious, industrious, collaborative students who are invested in their own achievement. Cognitive Yoga draws from the ancient tradition of Advaita Vedanta but brings immediate value to our understanding of the neuroscience of learning, emotional intelligence, and mind/body health.   My apologies to anyone who has tried to buy it before – just another glitch.  [contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
