Conversation with Simon Lewis: How do we make the most of our Consciousness?
Well, I have heard of a few revolutionary schools who teach highly relevant subjects for the real world. Can't remember any at the top of my head. These 2 are freshest in my mind. Green School in Bali http://www.ted.com/talks/john_hardy_my_green_school_dream.html Critical thinking for youths in Singapore. http://www.elanschool.com.sg/about-us/

Conversation with Simon Lewis: How do we make the most of our Consciousness?
1) Inspiring TED talk by Dr. Sherwin Nuland, who suffered from depression before drugs were avail. http://www.ted.com/talks/sherwin_nuland_on_electroshock_therapy.html 2) I learnt some interesting and helpful methods from Kathy Freston, who is a self-help author and wellness counselor; she specializes in a body/mind/spirit approach for bringing about health and happiness. Freston has worked with people healing from cancer, addiction, and depression as well as those who simply want to live consciously and healthfully. Hope you find your path to recovery Sonny!

Conversation with Simon Lewis: How do we make the most of our Consciousness?
Simon - you talk in the book about how the training was tiring and I find following *this* challenging. :) Good luck!! After hearing your INK (TED) talk http://www.ted.com/talks/simon_lewis_don_t_take_consciousness_for_granted.html I was inspired at the end as it seemed like you were talking about healing consciousness challenges that the world is experiencing at large - depression, migraines, headaches, Alzheimer's, stroke and a whole lot more. It feels like you're talking about helping each other and tapping more of our human potential! What are things we can DO to help?! Here are some of the ideas I have: 1) Do our part to curb depression and loneliness by connecting, broadening and nurturing our social circles 2) Teaching and giving brain gym to everyone including patients recovering from stroke (About brain gym: http://esl.about.com/od/englishlessonplans/a/braingym.htm) 3) Teaching Accelerated Learning & Motivating kids ( My career ) 4) Help kids get off computer addictions 5) Volunteer and old folks some brain stimulation ( I was moved when I walked past the Alzheimer's Association and saw the old folks in an empty and quiet room. :/ Empty room. Empty mind ) What is something we can do to help? What are you most involved in right now Simon?

Please share: What TED Talk has brought tears to your eyes?
He shouldn't be alive but he is. I'm astounded and in awe of the incredibly amazing Simon Lewis who had such strength and discipline to recover from such a traumatic brain and body injury. He’s eloquent, articulate and a treasure house of knowledge. Simon also exudes humbleness and unbelievable o p t i m i s m. I’m so grateful he’s alive and that he’s shared his story. I can’t wait to read his book. http://www.amazon.com/Rise-Shine-Extraordinary-Journey-Recovery/dp/1595800514 Do not read if you dislike spoilers: Simon Lewis made the seemingly miraculous recovery from tremendous brain & total body physical injury caused by a horrific car accident. He lost most of his blood, broke major bones including his pelvis, collarbone and all but 2 ribs. He overcame low IQ to become a genius through cognitive training. I'm thoroughly inspired by this humble and brilliant man! He's (too) humble though, for this talk needs to be SPREAD throughout the world. He's talking about healing consciousness challenges that the world is experiencing at large - depression, migraines, headaches, Alzheimer's, stroke and more. Mr Lewis is talking about helping each other and tapping more of our human potential! Let’s all play a part in this cause. Whether its to curb depression and loneliness by connecting, broadening and nurturing our social circles, teaching and giving brain gym to patients recovering from stroke, helping kids get off computer addictions or giving old folks some brain stimulation. I walked past the Alzheimer's Association and saw the old folks in an empty and quiet room. Empty room. Empty mind. What is something you can do to help?
