November 12: Today I received photos from a friend, artist, student of kinesiology, and photographer Christa Ostertag, bringing back memories of one of our special workshop events this year. Under the sponsorship of CIKA (Centro Integral de Kinesiología Aplicada®) and organized by Margarita Ehrensperger, our longtime friend, fellow kinesiologist, and Brain Gym® International Faculty member, Paul taught The Dennison Approach to Whole-Brain Learning course to an enthusiastic group of 90 parents and schoolteachers in colorful Mexico City, followed by my teaching the Double Doodle Play and Double Doodle Teacher Training courses to dozens of Brain Gym® Instructors in nearby Coyoacan.
Paul and I loved seeing the imaginative Double Doodle* images and hearing the stories created by our south-of-the border students, who had great fun using both hands together to draw and paint. Margarita has already completed her portfolio of artwork and taught her first course of Double Doodle Play—congratulations to Margarita and others who are on their way to teaching this fun and creative course!
*In the 1960s, Paul learned “bilateral drawing” from developmental optometrist G.N. Getman, author of How to Develop Your Child’s Intelligence; in the 1980s, we elaborated on this playful activity and renamed it Double Doodle, including it as one of the 26 Brain Gym® activities.
