Mental Bridging ®:
Eastern Balance in a Western World






Organisations, companies and institutes experience increasing pressure, both financially and socially from the outside world. Operational goals are continuously increased, not only as a result of growing competition but also by financial requirements set by the financial sector and shareholders.

The consequences of these demands on higher management slowly trickle through to the rest of the organisations resulting in employees more and more being managed to increase their performance and to achieve more growth. And that is when working (and learning) effectively is crucial.

The Mental Bridging concept created by Bjørn Aris is focused on increasing the output (return, if you will) of employees. The training course focusses on utilizing both the rational (left brain) and the emotional (right brain) capacity of people. By bridging the left and right brain capacities employees are better able to work effectively and it will increase creative (out-of-the-box) thinking and unlock some 75% of their brain potential. It also allows employees to better handle working in stressful situations. Although the origin of this knowledge is Oriental, by 2006 all its workings have been scientifically proven by Western (European as well as US universities) medical-, brain- and behavioral research.

Programs are tailor-made and are unique in their practical approach. Not only is the theory explained, but in the practical sessions we use techniques derived from the Oriental martial art iaido: Japanese Samurai Swordsmanship.

By experiencing the theory in practice one will better retain what one has learned. And it provides an opportunity to link the theory to your daily routine.

Using Eastern wisdom together with Western science creates new insights for the participants. This in turn allows them to consider challenges in a new and creative light, while focussing on working efficiently. This breakthrough, usually achieved in the last stage of the training, is the starting point for a new way ahead.

The Mental Bridging model, 4 basic principles, will when applied guarantee succes. The basic principles will be explained and experienced by using exercises derived from Japanese Samurai Swordsmanship. At the end the workings will also be explained cognitively.

Key subjects which will be addressed (not limited to);

. pro activity

. problem solving vs symptom fighting

. communication

. behaviour

. conditioning

. balance

. stress

. use of left- and right brain half

. breathing

. various practical techniques

which will/can (also) be linked to elements (not limited to) identified in the morning program/intake.

At the end of the program participants have become aware of blocking factors (internal as well as external) which prohibit joyful living and being effective at work.

They also learned how to unlock their brain potential, and received tools to further develop the latter.

During the training they will have achieved a major breakthrough through one of their blocking factors; fear.

The Mental Bridging concept has been successfully taught to over 60 nationalities over various continents and has been subject to academic research. All it workings have been proven scientifically.
