Research on Brain Education for Children:

Ilchi Lee, the creator of the Brain Education method used by Power Brain Education, has a special connection to children who struggle to learn since he, too, was once one of these children. In spite of being born as a son of an educator, he found it very difficult to focus and to learn in school, and his early years were filled with anxiety and self-doubt as a result.

There was a silver lining on that cloud, however. Because he suffered so much as a youngster, he was driven to ask himself, very early in life, “Who am I? And what is the meaning of my life?” His determination to find satisfactory answers to those questions led eventually to the creation of Brain Education philosophies and methods.

The basic message that Lee wishes to spread is simple: Everyone has a good brain, if only they can learn how to use it. To help people with this task, he created the five-step Brain Education method, which can be used by people of any age to get the most out of their brains and to become whatever they want to become in life. Power Brain Education is one of the many programs inspired by his work.

As the originator of the Brain Education method, Lee remains the ultimate example of a Power Brain in action. Starting with just one student in a park many decades ago, he has grown the movement to include instructors and students from all over the world. He is also a New York Times bestselling author who has written more than 40 books, including The Power Brain: Five Steps to Upgrading Your Brain Operating System.

Brain Education has been adapted to help people of all ages from all walks of life, from kids in schools to elders in nursing homes. Innovative programs have been created based on Brain Education that are redefining modern education, breaking it out of old modes that leave too many children behind. One example is the Benjamin School for Character Education, a unique gap-year program where high school students discover their passion and self-worth through Brain Education.

He also created the non-profit organization, the International Brain Education Association (IBREA) to raise awareness of the great value of the human brain and unleash its capacity to create a world we all wish to see. IBREA has Special Consultative Status with the UN ECOSOC.Through IBREA’s global work, 10% of El Salvador’s public schools are replicating the Brain Education school program.

Due to its success and adaptability, Brain Education is now even being studied as an academic discipline in Korea, and a research institute and graduate university have been established for researching, teaching, and disseminating the method.

The potential of this program to help people is virtually limitless, and the need for it is great in this challenging world of ours. We need a kind of education that addresses the whole person, not just traditional academic subjects. Brain Education was created for the whole human, and for everyone’s fulfilled potential, including your own.
