Subject: Learning, teaching and human development
Anatomy of Embodied Education: Creating Pathways to Brain-Mind Evolution by E. Timothy Burns and James Brown PhD is a comprehensive study of the mind-brain embodiment in the context of learning and teaching. It encompasses neuro-biology, psychology, genetics and learning theory, drawing upon the scholarship and significant professional experience of the authors, educator Tim Burns and neuro-psychologist Jim Brown. 'Anatomy' is written for anyone who values science, learning, human development and educational policy and practice. It is of particular relevance to parents, and to professional educators - teachers/lecturers, principals, and educational policy makers. Burns and Brown skilfully present a detailed and systematic understanding of the brain and mind, in an accessible style and format, including numerous graphics. They then argue for a learner-centred, holistic, principled yet pragmatic approach to learning, teaching, and schooling, drawing upon learning theory, models and approaches. Pragmatic 'guiding strategies in support of optimal learning' are then presented and elucidated, 'dedicated to the renewal and advancement of civilization beyond the Covid-19 pandemic'.

PRAISE FOR ANATOMY OF EMBODIED EDUCATION
“Anatomy of Embodied Education: Creating Pathways to Brain-Mind Evolution” is an artful piece of work that condenses the past 70 years of literature from the fields of neuroscience, learning, psychology and human wellbeing. This is a resource that integrates centuries of bright minds, a collage of perspectives and rich discussion leading to optimizing human potential. The authors have unpacked the imperative beyond the growth of a healthy, functioning brain toward developing an inquisitive, creative and intelligent mind. This accumulation of comprehensive knowledge interwoven with keen perspectives engages the reader in an in-depth discussion of a path to access human potentials across many levels. The journey begins with simple brain-body physiology, articulating the essentials of healthy development through early and ongoing extension of the brain-mind that drives purposeful thought and character. Comprehensive as any work on the brain as it relates to “mind,” the focus encompasses a span from individual achievement to species potentials. The gestalt of this work eclipses an amassing of scientific knowledge, applying such to living life well, as one learns and lives in accordance with nature’s agenda. Burns and Brown have done a spectacular reflection of the essence of the body/brain and the mind/spirit of human potentials. They have left no stone unturned in the pursuit of human growth and possibility."

This book is a beautiful invitation to the adventure of lifelong learning. The final chapter, which summarizes the integration of body, mind and heart intelligence, is a must read for anyone interested in translating the latest brain science into creating a better world for future generations."

"Anatomy of Embodied Education is a complex, multilayered and multileveled holistic synthesis of scientific, practical, pedagogical, spiritual and intuitive approach, but also a work based on centuries of human experience, traditional wisdom and basic common sense for personal, educational and society development and common wellbeing. It is a good read - a clear, comprehensive, well organised manual for individuals, parents, teachers, developers of policies and hopefully leaders to guide and support them in impacting the development and nurture of (every)one's learning, progress and wellbeing with the implementation of wholesome strategies, routines and environmental enrichments."

Jim Brown, Ph.D., has spent his entire professional life quietly patrolling the frontiers of discovering and applying knowledge that involves consciousness and neuroscience. He recognized and seized the opportunities to become an early adopter in burgeoning fields such as biofeedback, then neurofeedback, plus theory and practices stemming from humanistic and transpersonal psychology, plus steeping himself in systems theory as a context for all his other fields of focus.
