My Experience at Kripalu: A CNSF Tells All by: Megan Winkler

This August, the Neurosculpting® Institute returned to Kripalu for Neurosculpting® Through the Body Current. Throughout the week, founders of both modalities, Lisa Wimberger and Shanti Medina led attendees through daily practices focused on mitigating stress, resolving pain, and moving past limiting beliefs.

I would recommend going to Neurosculpting® Through the Body Current to anyone who wants to make a positive, sustainable change in their brain health and to make a whole-body transformation. It was a powerful week of learning and shifting.”

Sustained Healing

buddhaActivities included daily Neurosculpting® meditations, yoga, and Body Current® practices, but the benefits of the retreat continue even after everyone returned home.

“The breathing and chanting practices we learned with the Body Current® plus Neurosculpting® meditation—it was a one-two punch on knocking out the wiring of past trauma that I was working through during the week,” says Morrison. “It helped release old stories then create new pathways in building a healthier story moving forward.”

Participants put together a daily and monthly plan to incorporate everything they learned during the retreat into their daily lives. They also learned how to eat for a healthier brain and continued wellness.

“The nutrition information we learned for brain health will also be key in helping me move forward to maximize my neuroplasticity every day. The knowledge and experiences that I gained in the class will be of great value in my professional life as well!”
