Question 2. Isn’t this what the
school system is supposed to do ?
Answer: Since the pioneering
research of Dr Roger Sperry, we’ve known that the left brain
is responsible for logical, methodical thought; the right brain is
responsible for highly creative, intuitive, almost sponge-like photographic learning.
Both sides are designed to work together.
The problem is that the right brain is largely ignored in traditional
school environments. Schools teach through drills, repetition, tests and
quizzes — all left brain. The right brain world of imagination, imagery, and
applied intuition gets little nurturing or challenge.
Ironically, it is precisely because of the school system that we need a
Right Brain Education program as Heguru
has demonstrated graphically
From Age to 0 -3 children are mostly right brain dominant. This ability
begins to diminish from age 3 upwards.
The left brain which has been dormant since birth now begins to climb
up. Between the ages of 3 & 6 when
children begin formal schooling, the left brain receives a boost while the
right brain becomes less and less dominant.
