Realize Your Full Potential!

The Penticton Church recently hosted Dr. Arlene Taylor’s week-end seminar entitled “Realize Your Full Potential.”  

Besides church members from Penticton and neighboring churches, a large number of community people attended the seminar which ran from Friday evening through to Sunday afternoon.  The response to the seminar was very positive.  The church provided a Sabbath lunch plus an evening meal.  Some people who came to the event were so impressed, they came back on Monday evening to the CHIP Alumni Pot-luck meeting!

The Brain Seminar

Dr. Taylor is one of the world’s leading speakers on brain function, and is sometimes referred to as the brain guru.  She specializes in simplifying this complex topic of brain function, with the goal of helping individuals learn to thrive by design.  Whether through keynote addresses, seminars, consulting, coaching, television and radio, or her books, CDs and DVDs, success stories pour in from the four corners of the world.

Dr. Taylor is founder and president of Realizations Inc., a non-profit corporation that engages in brain-function research and provides related educational resources.  She has mastered the art of engaging her audience as she adds humor and wit to her presentations.

In the book “Education”, page 197, we read the following:  “The influence of the mind on the body, as well as of the body on the mind should be emphasized.  The electric power of the brain, promoted by mental activity, vitalizes the whole system, and is thus an invaluable aid in resisting disease.  This should be made plain.  The power of the will and the importance of self-control, both in the preservation and in the recovery of health, the depressing and even ruinous effect of anger, discontent, selfishness, or impurity, and on the other hand the marvelous life-giving power to be found in cheerfulness, unselfishness, and gratitude should also be shown.”

Ask what energizes her and Dr. Taylor will likely reply, “This is the age of the brain!  As a brain-function specialist, I love to share information that can help people use their brains more effectively-by design.”  Dr. Taylor has the following quote on her website “Others may not remember exactly what you said, or did, or even how you looked, but their brains will always remember how they felt in your presence.”
