Connecting Neuroscience, Psychology of Learning and Movement

Mind Body Studies (MBS) and Self In Action (SiA) bring together six decades of work and worldwide teaching of awareness, meditation, and movement.

For over 60 years we have been working on the shared key principles of multiple important disciplines of thought, movement, and brain research and synthesized them into practical techniques and information that learned is through easy exercises.

Self in Action (SiA!) is a skill set, easily acquired through mindful precision exercises.  These provide a language of communication between mind and body to connect you with your untapped potential.

The principles of this work, which apply to multiple professions and multiple life situations, have been taught for 60 years, and are still taught with consistent results worldwide, to people of all ages and all conditions.

A great part of our brain cells and capabilities lie dormant and untapped.  We form habits and stop using the immense capacity in our inherently intelligent system.

The range of activities and behavior of people throughout life can be narrowed down to perhaps 20 actions:  looking up and down/ bending, looking around, reaching to grasp, lift, walking, maybe running. We are born with an infinitely capable system and no manual and as a result, most abilities are dormant.   It is like programming 20 numbers into your cell phone and never using the keypad to add any new ones or create variety.

MBS Academy’s SiA! Fills that gap  – it is your user’s manual to yourself:  a language of communication between thought, emotions, and physical state, so you can truly master your states and manage life’s changing demands and your goals optimally.

SiA is basic and essential information about how we operate.  It will enable you to reach your full potential and keep expanding physical and mental mastery of yourself.  

This information is easy and important.  Every person deserves to have it.

What Is Mind Body Studies (MBS) and Self In Action (SiA!)?

The exercises are exceptional in that they affect eight key behavioral components simultaneously:

  • 1. Movement: Experiential learning of our bodies is abilities and connections.
  • 2. Technique: Enhancing and improving the movement of self and others.
  • 3. Sensing: Developing simultaneous attention on multiple levels.
  • 4. Cognitive: Understanding principles and patterns of thought and movement. 
  • 5. Beliefs: Experientially re-examining existing beliefs about self and motivation.
  • 6. Values: Revisiting culturally instilled goals and achievements.
  • 7. Self Image: Checking subjective experiences in our environment.
  • 8. Identity: Connecting with innermost identity and center of self.
