BrainWise CPR in India

Posted On: May 25, 2016

Vashi workshop 5After a Rotarian gave Dr. Marguerite (Marga) Theophil  a copy of How To Be BrainWise, Marga immediately saw how teaching the  program’s 10 Wise Ways  would enhance the work she and other educators were doing with children and families across a wide spectrum of populations in India.  She raised funds, purchased course materials, and held training workshops for them.  Attached are pictures taken at a recent workshop she held in Vashi.
Marguerite Theophil, PhD, is training educators in India to teach BrainWise CPR to children, youth, and adults in urban and rural communities. She reports that the teachers love the BrainWise approach and find it complements the Mindful Practices sessions they teach. Teachers find that adding the 10 Wise Ways gives them a powerful and effective teaching tool that helps them, as well as their students.
Dr. Theophil is the founder of WEAVE, an organization that helps individuals by teaching, learning, and connecting. Here is what she says about why she started teaching BrainWise:
I work as a Personal Growth Coach with clients in one-on-one sessions and also teach Mindfulness Practice to groups. I learned that so many of them do not use any form of thinking skills in their decision making! I found that BrainWise it helps them realize they could be more in control of events and strong emotions, rather than let those things control them. I found the two ways really did feed into, nourish & support each other.
