For the past month, Monday nights at 7 pm, I was tuned into my computer learning about how our brain really works. Dr. Charis has shared fascinating information and a wealth of knowledge in each session.  I knew a lot about the brain, or I thought I did - she’s made me realize how important it is to take time to really know about our brains and how to care for them.  I’m eagerly awaiting the upcoming sessions.  She presents information in an easy way to understand and comprehend.

I love knowing knowing how things work. It is even better if I can be sitting in my pj’s or in the garden and learning about my body how it works and how to naturally heal it.

I encountered Charis at a women’s herbal conference, joined GingerJuice right away and was delighted when the Brilliant Brain on-line course came up.  I have been ‘eating it up’.  More than any other source of information, from books and medical guides, Charis’s organized presentation has helped me make sense of and find tools for addressing my own early cognitive issues that 5 years ago accompanied a host of other autoimmune symptoms. I would highly recommend this medium, along with the connections with other interested herbalists.

For the past several years I have taken several online courses but never did the homework when memory or testing was involved, so it was more like I was auditing.  Now I realized I was concerned I would discover that my brain no longer is retaining information and I wanted to retain my earlier schooling image of myself as a great learner.  I was scared that if memory loss were there, it was permanent, and I didn’t want to find that out! Through this course, I think Charis has managed to help me get over that hurdle!
