"Stefanie is making connections that few if any others are making, between subjects as diverse as myth and neuroscience, trauma and smartphones, growth mindset and social justice.
Her words have helped me personally heal from deep-seated wounds I didn't know I had,
and given me a clearer direction for where I want to go next.
I will be sharing this podcast far and wide."

FEATURED ARTICLE



   

The human brain depends on experiences to build its most evolved and dynamic circuitry.

 

New experiences push the brain to light up new networks, rather than repeat old ones.

The brain thrives on being challenged.
 
It is designed to grow and grow and grow.
 
It's at its most evolved when it lights up with new patterns of electrochemical signals across diverse, multiple regions.
 
It's at its most evolved when it is flexing, adapting, and increasing communication between hemispheres and far-flung networks.
 
It can only do those things when you are giving it new 'material' to work with... ...New experiences, new thoughts, new behaviors, new sensations.
   

The human brain is the most magnificent, mysterious system in the known universe.


Its possibilities are endless.
 
And yet, so many of us don't push it far enough to see what it is truly capable of.
 
Push yourself to learn something new and know that feeling awkward or ill-equipped is exactly the feeling that represents growth and expansion of new neural networks.

"I loved getting strategies on how to implement growth mindset information in our own classrooms.  I now know how to teach my students about the importance of risk-taking and how we learn more as we make mistakes. Stefanie is a captivating speaker."

"I love this podcast! I use it professionally as an instructional coach and have sound that the information is very helpful when working with teachers and supporting their practices with students. I also use the concepts provided here (and on the YouTube Channel) to support my work as a professional development facilitator. Last, this podcast has proven surprisingly valuable in my personal life as I seek to self-regulate and become more aware of what is happening with feelings vs. emotions. Absolutely one of the best finds in terms of clear, accessible content."
