Fresh thoughts, actionable

.

I loved the course! It changed my thoughts about the mind and learning. Now I know that I can learn anything. And the most important: I know HOW to learn it: from general understanding of brain work to technics and real mental tools. Thank you very much, Barbara and Terrence!

This class should be taught to everyone in school, no later than the fourth grade! I loved the material and found it to be immensely interesting. I utilized some of these techniques without even knowing it, but the ones I adopted from the course will serve me for a lifetime. So much to gain from this class, and it is so short, you would be crazy not to go through it.
