Brain Enhancement Through Ritual Dance - Dancing With The Soul


Brain Enhancement Through Ritual Dance - Dancing With The Soul


In the past 30 years of field research and experimental development of living ancient traditions, Dr. Torres has developed a practical application in the modern world for improving physical and mental health using ancestral and contemporary ways to improve brain function and inter-hemispheric abilities.

We do this by understanding and identifying neural circuitry involved in repeating and memorizing. Through specific rhythms which enhance visual, auditory and kinestetic memory. We will also explore how our thoughts and emotions can block our ability to learn naturally.

In this 2 hour workshop, Dr. Torres will share her research and offer participants an opportunity to experience a taste of traditional Mexican dance.

She started her research career as a postdoctoral MRC Research Fellow at the Interdisciplinary Anthropological Research Institute in 1976 and has been primarily concerned on experimental investigation of intergroup relations, working collaboratively with people in their community contexts to focus psychological aspects of dance and rituals as a form of therapy and life enhancement in contemporary society.

She has been active in presenting her research at professional meetings worldwide and teaches undergraduate and doctoral courses. Her research areas include neuropsychological approaches to cognition, the interplay of feeling and thinking, the role of reasoning and the communicative underpinnings of self-reports of attitudes and behaviours. Brain enhancement thru neuronal stimulation of both hemispheres, osteogenic exercise, gerontology and stress management.

Within her consistent research interest of cross-cultural psychology, she learned ritual and healing dances from communities in New Zealand, Africa, Australia, Fiji, Rarotonga, Thailand, Indonesia, Brazil, Peru, Chile and Colombia. Visited ashrams in India and Nepal, Zen And Tibetan Monasteries in Bhutan, Tibet, China and Japan, She began a longstanding interest in neuropsychological effects on neurotransmitters and their chemical reaction to specific rhythmical dances applied to reduce stress, depression, insomnia, migraine, anxiety and remarkable improvement of bone density as well as better performance of activities in the brain.
