Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 08, 2012
At a time when self-help books and motivational gurus are proving to be a booming industry, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to realize that millions of people are searching for answers to help improve their lives. But are all those “wishful thinking” and “feel good” mantras really making a difference?
According to world renowned neuropsychologist and best-selling author Dr. Mario Martinez, if a person doesn’t possess a consciousness of worthiness, wishful thinking seldom leads to lasting change and fulfillment. “It is not a reshuffling of beliefs,” says Dr. Martinez. “It is a process of reclaiming our neglected personal excellence. We do that by setting emotional limits with predators that exhaust our empathy, and understanding the meaning of our journey.” His research suggests that once those changes are made, they can have positive impacts on our longevity, body, mind and even relationships.
Additionally, Dr. Martinez proposes that, rather than genetics, healthy longevity is mostly due to our cultural beliefs. His new model of the immune system explains why exalted emotions such as empathy, compassion, love, and honor, enhance immune responses in the body, thus leading us to live healthier and more productive lives.
As the best-selling author of the 6 CD set “The Mind Body Code: How the Mind Wounds and Heals the Body” (Sounds True) Dr. Mario Martinez has already helped thousands worldwide discover new ways to improve their lives through Biocognitive Science. And on Friday November 30th and Saturday December 1st he will be bringing his latest research to audiences in Los Angeles with two special events, both open to the public.
On Friday, November 30, 2012 from 7:30PM – 9:30PM Dr. Martinez will be giving a lecture entitled, “Introduction to the Theory and Practice of Biocognition: How Cultural Beliefs Affect Health, Wealth, and Love.” In this two-hour introductory lecture he will discuss the basic principles of biocognition and how they can be applied to navigate uncertainty and self-deprivation. Those who also wish to register for the full-day workshop (Sunday December 1) will have the cost of the lecture credited toward the workshop.

On Saturday, December 1, 2012 from 9AM - 6:30PM Dr. Martinez will deliver a professional workshop entitled, “The Learning of Illness and the Causes of Health: Creating a Life Incompatible with Deprivation-Consciousness.” This full-day workshop is intended for professionals of the life sciences (psychologists, physicians, social workers, therapists, anthropologists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, theologians, nurses, counselors, educators, and other life sciences professionals) who are interested in applying biocognitive science principles to their respective professions. A Certificate of Participation will be issued by the Institute of Biocognitive Science.
