In Self-Intelligence, Jane Ransom introduces you to her model of self-discovery and transformation which shows how the miraculous plasticity of the brain can unlock incredible personal transformation.
It is a long held belief that a person’s development is determined in part by genetics, and in part by experiences from childhood that shape and form us, many of them forgotten or repressed. We also generally understand our intelligence to be one part natural in the form of our Intelligence Quotient, or IQ, but also something that can be developed over time, most notably in the form of Emotional Intelligence, also known as EQ. What if all of these things were true, but that was not the end of the story?
In this ground-breaking book by journalist and science buff, Jane Ransom introduces us to a new model of self-discovery and transformation through Self-Intelligence™. Through new advances in neuroscience, we are learning about the miraculous plasticity of the brain. In short, this means your brain can remap itself over the course of your life resulting in a new you.
Ransom is not promising miracles in the form of a personality make-over, but she is affirming that we are not locked into a past we no longer want nor a sense of self that we do not wish to accept. Her approach combines the latest brain science with positive and cognitive behavioral psychology, certain techniques from Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and a somatically based mind-body methodology called RIM, among other techniques.
Self-Intelligence is a highly accessible guide that turns hard science into dramatic stories and simple, easy-to-use tools resulting in personal growth and transformation.
