Summer Seminar | Italy
supernatural you: the neuroscience of attention
Reach beyond your limitations to the next level of transformation by the renewing of your mind.


Have you ever wondered what Jesus meant, when He said to pray as if it has already been done?
Practicing thankfulness as if the vision has already come to pass, may be the key component to actualizing our vision, according to the latest neuro-science research. Events that we visualize have the same effect on our brain as events that are happening in real time. When we set our attention on our future vision, the hope God has for us, with thankfulness and gratitude, our emotions and brain chemistry changes and our neural pathways become re-wired accordingly. When we set our attention toward a vision, the attention bias of our brain shifts focus and our brain starts looking for new evidence to confirm the vision. In this way, the brain neurologically becomes a map of the future rather than merely a record of the past.
There is good reason for this. ‘What we focus on is what we get’ and what we direct our attention and energy towards, not only builds neural pathways but also shapes our external world.
Negativity generally leads to more negativity and striving producing the stress hormones inherent in that way of being.
A positive focus leads to an upward spiral of wellbeing, increased capacities and expansive possibilities for the future.
Come and join us in Italy, summer 2020, for a three-day seminar, where Pauline Skeates will present the principles and process of realising possibilities.
• An intentional life is based on moment-by-moment attention.
• Neuroplastic change is entirely based on how and where we focus our attention.
• Our preferred self is only a focus away.
• We can set intentions and live our vision in the present moment with thankfulness and gratitude.
• With focused attention training, it is possible to bloom like a flower, right now.
• No one of us is too old to do this work!

My cousin Debbie went to one of these. Will I be required to talk about my personal experiences like she did in her class?
We work with our attendees to create a safe and supportive environment to faciliate anyone talking about their personal expriences if they want to. But no one will be required to share anything they are not comfortable with.

I’m wanting to attend this course as part of my professional development programme. Do you provide any proof of attendance or certificate of completion that I can provide to my employers?
Yes we do provide certificates to all of our attendees who complete our courses. These are also required for attendance to our level two and upwards classes.

what people have to say
“I thoroughly enjoyed the training presented and found the theory and techniques very useful in broadening my professional
practice, as well as enriching my everyday life. I would highly recommend it to professionals working in the helping
professions or anyone with an interest in personal growth and development.”
LINEE, Clinical Psychologist

“It has been fascinating to learn about how the brain functions under stress, how this relates to an individual’s past and how it can be ‘reset’ to enable more positive outcomes for the future. Learning how to engage in the present moment instead of living in fear of the uncertainties ahead is a must, for any individual”
Deb, Graphic Designer

“The course is thoughtfully put together and beautifully presented. The trainers are wonderfully welcoming, sensitive and knowledgeable. They deliver the content in a manner that brings research and theory to life. I gained so much that I have been able to implement both personally and within my work. I recommend this training without hesitation. Go for it.” JULIE, Occupational Therapist
