Slide 1: 

The Healing Potential of Breathwork © Gunnel Minett 2009 Brain Functions

Slide 2: 

A healthy brain is: Flexible, Adaptive, Coherent, Energised, Stable (Dan Siegel) Brain Functions

Slide 3: 

Cooperation leads to increased effect Brain Functions

Slide 4: 

Cycling Self-defense Typewriting Survival strategies Reptilian Brain Mammalian Brain Memory Learning Emotions Immune-system Neocortex Frontal lobes Higher thought process Language Higher awareness Main coordinator

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions In a self-defence reaction we have limited emotions, no real awareness of time or of our inner self... ...which sometimes can be reflected in our behaviour

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions The centre of emotions is close to the immune system... … i.e. a strong link between emotions and physical health which explains psychosomatic illness!

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions The frontal lobes are very young compared to the oldest parts

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions They are centre for higher consciousness - also known as the angel lobes

Slide 9: 

Integration Holistic cooperation equals psychological health Brain Functions

Slide 10: 

Poor cooperation/communication cause psychological problems Brain Functions

Slide 11: 

Malfunction/imbalance = emotion and thought do not cooperate to analyse a situation Brain Functions

Slide 12: 

Psychotic behaviour is to mix completely unrelated thoughts and emotions or Brain Functions

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions The heart reacts before the brain does - differently to positive and negative events – even before they occur. (Institute of HeartMath)

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions The heart has its own ‘intelligence’ - “we know from the heart” – (a confirmation of old folklore)

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions Positive vibrations synchronise and spread widely – negative create chaos and do not travel far. “Laugh and the world laughs with you – cry and you cry alone”.

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions “You can’t lie to a child because they pick up more signals from you than you know your are sending”. Bruno Bettelheim

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions Hippocampus and Amygdala deal with reactions such as fear, compassion, anger etc. RAS – Reticular Activating System

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions Amygdala is the body’s emergency alert system – evolution’s watchdog. It screens incoming information for threats.

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions No content or logic only resonance - i.e. compares reaction with previous reactions of similar kind.

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions Reacts in nanoseconds to potential threats and activates millions of neural responses in body and brain before reaching conscious awareness.

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions Hippocampus much slower applying rational thought to get better understanding

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions Amygdala reacts to the potential risk of being face to face with a huge dangerous animal….

Brain Functions : 

Brain Functions Hippocampus analyses the situation properly and decides the real risk.
