Heart of the Brain Testimonials -- 

Layne Kalbfleisch is an excellent, very competent speaker on a very complex subject. She willingly shared her experiences as a scientist and what we can do ourselves to make these connections. She is also kind and generous to every participant. A great program and a lovely person. 

She is a wonderful person, who provides academic knowledge with experiential parts spiced with a lot of humor and good vibes.

Layne Kalbfleisch, for being so young, has a wealth of experience researching the topic and was able to put her scientific research into layman's terms and by combining with interactive exercises, and free time to explore nature gave a nice weekend workshop experience. 

You hit just the right spot for an audience of educated laypersons -- high level, but covered the basics.  Lots of valuable information! 

Your presentation was accessible and brilliant! I cannot wait to continue to follow your research and watch you change the world.

You are like the genie in the bottle.

If you are interested in a Heart of the Brain workshop or retreat for your organization or for personal enrichment, please send an email to: heartofthebrain@gmail.com -- Heart of the Brain (C)  is a unique format that incorporates the latest in human neuroscience into usable practical tenets to improve your learning opportunity and quality of life.  I want you to "feel what I mean, not just hear what I say."
