Fifteen teachers from Don Bosco School, Matunga and Six teachers of Don Bosco High School, Nerul, attended the Master Your Mind workshop on August 22 & 23, 2013. The session was conducted by Mr. D.

Joaquim Fernandes on the various memory techniques, rapid reading, Neurobics, super accelerative learning skills and Enlightened Leadership for Teachers. They were also made aware of the seven major types of intelligence and how they could use this knowledge in the classroom while dealing with children with different types of intelligence. The teachers will now break the rote memory system of learning and train the children through association techniques and new learning strategies developed in the 21st century.

A four day Master Your Mind Workshop was held at Tej-Prasarini, Don Bosco Communications Centre for Twenty Five adults. During the workshop the participants were introduced to multiple intelligence, ambidexterity, concentration, memory techniques, speed reading, mind maps, neurobics and a number of techniques to help the brain perform to its optimum best. Another important aspect during this workshop was to learn total relaxation techniques where the body is completely relaxed but the mind is fully alert. "This workshop provides a complete change of perspective and is one of the best courses that I have attended," said Mr.Sitesh Dutt, "It was a very good and well organized course. I enjoyed learning about mind-maps, Alpha waves and the different types of intelligence," said Mrs. Ujwala Mistry who is a teacher by profession. "It opens several avenues to you and gives you a fully empowered and enriched experience in life said Mrs Rupal Nagda and her husband Mr Rahul Murdeshwar.

Nearly 150 children from the various schools participated in the "Brain Training Program".  This was one of the best program I have attended so far said Dev from Don Bosco High School. It was an amazing experience said Erica from J B Wacha School

Mr. D. P. Mahesha trained the boarders of Don Bosco, Matunga in Master your Mind workshop and the children were delighted to see the amazing powers of the brain.

This seminar taught each of the participants to work smarter and to use our potentials to our optimum level. It was a spiritual reawakening through the past life regression it healed the emotional scars and I learned to forgive and let go to attain fulfilment and peace.  I laughed after almost 21 years and I feed proud said Mr Umesh Kamat a business entrepreneur.  Tony Buzan the mind power expert says "Instead of teaching the individual facts about other things, we must teach him facts about himself… like how he can learn, think, recall, create and solve problems". This Brain Training program was indeed a journey to self-exploration. Nearly 450 people who attended the valedictory program were mesmerized with awe and amazement at the way the children and adults grasped words, numbers, and dates and above all to learn the power of the mind.
