Biology of Neuroscience
The Triune Self
Reptilian . Mammalian . Neocortical
Our first 3 elements address your body’s basic regulatory functions controlled by the Brainstem, or Reptilian Brain. They form the foundation of your inner well being in the physical/primal.
Element 1: EXERCISE EVERYDAY
Element 2: STRENGTHEN YOUR SPINE
Element 3: EAT WHOLE FOODS
The next 3 elements support your inner well-being through the Neocortical brain.
This is the foundation of your intellectual/spiritual self.
Element 4: DEVELOP SELF-AWARENESS
Element 5: FIND CENTERING TIME
Element 6: CARE FOR YOUR COMMUNITY + ENVIRONMENT
The final 2 elements support your inner well-being through the Limbic System, or Mammalian brain.
This forms the access to and expression of your emotional/social self
Element 7: BE PROACTIVE
Element 8: LIVE FROM YOUR HEART
These “3 Brains” may also be found in the nervous system located through
three main corresponding areas of the body: Pelvis, Chest, and Head.
