“Did you ever take a moment to think that the words you use have the ability to affect how you function in your life and how your health is affected by the words you use and hear?  The words you use may affect the direction of your life, especially when you overuse them.

Our human brain has evolved over millions of years. The most primitive parts of our brain operate at a deeply unconscious level, and influence a great deal more of our conscious behaviors than most of us realize.

We respond to words at a visceral, autonomic level. Understanding the impact of words on the brain can help us to become better managers, parents, significant others or almost any other role in which we may find ourselves

Unlike any other animal communication system, words contains an expression for negation — the contradiction or denial of something. .

We will learn through the use of all of our senses to view the world around us in a more profound way. We will study the effect of using positive words or images, such as those related to rewards, victory, or security.
