Awaken your Brain is a new book on the scientific experience of awakening by Dr. Skolnick. Dr. Skolnick is an MD psychiatrist, PhD in Natural Health, with advanced training in Neuropsychology and almost 30 years as a Zen meditation practitioner.
What is awakening has been the discussion of so many conversations; the number is almost as limitless as the concept. Basically, awakening is opening your consciousness to connect to your true and higher self. This realization is one of the goals for spiritual practices, yoga or other ways to find happiness and peace in your life.
Awakening is the impetus for Totally Zen; so, it seems appropriate that Dr. Skolnick would reach out to others in the world who are actively working on sharing information about how to be healthy in our mind, body and spirit. Out of his efforts to join together to build and create wellness communities; I am honored to help him by presenting it here at Totally Zen. Awaken Your Brain is a powerful, useful and informative book.
In Awaken Your Brain, Dr. Skolnick uses a brain and wellness-based explanation and practices, to create a direct non-emotional, scientific approach to awakening your higher self. The advantage to his method it is non-emotional and rational. Meaning you can empirically see how what he is saying and teaching is valid, concrete and useful. Taking the emotions out of the process is like shaving years off the process in order to cut through the ways in which your ego has learned to interact and act with life.
I got the opportunity to speak with Dr. Skolnick I asked him how he got involved in Zen meditation. It seems he had a tragedy affect his life and Zen meditation was a path someone led him to that helped him through his rough times. As time went on he continued his journey to understand his own meditation practice which coincided with his formal studies of the brain and human behavior. His interest in psychology began early on in his life through exposure to caring for others with problems.
Through his education in graduate school he posed the question in a thesis, What Creates Awareness? The answer became the basis for the book Awaken Your Brain. He has been developing and honing his model to help you through the awakening process in a scientific based theory of Neural Inshifting. This is actually a 5 step brain skill model. The result was the creation of a full-spectrum model of how the mind and brain work -from the most primitive and abnormal states to the highest most Awakened states.
Furthering his vision he realized he needed a model to speak and teach his theory from and this book is the perfect platform. Soon he will, turn his attention into opening a wellness center, Santori West, where his model will be implemented in a teaching format that will help people transform their lives. At the center you will be able to learn how to apply this theory, keep it alive and working better in your own lives and continue to grow and change as a result of this training. As the launch of his book arrives he must be so pleased as to the results of all his hard work; I know I am really enjoying the book!
