Becoming a Resilient Warrior

Author : Vanda North
Bio : Vanda North’s passion, purpose, and everything she has done, and is doing, is under the role as a “joy enhancer.” Finding practical, easy-to-do, brain compatible, lasting, and highly effective processes to share is her goal. From running the NASA canteen in Grand Canary to being president of the International Society for Accelerated Learning & Teaching; from Unilever, UK, to Florida Power & Light, USA; from running a 5000 strong school volunteer program to a “Happiness & Wellness” TV show; and from teaching people how to use their brains effectively to helping them develop their resilience—all done so people may enhance their joy quotient in simple yet highly effective, practical ways. Building resilience is her most recent way of increasing people’s enJOYment of life. After experiencing the pandemic of stress and the lack of coping strategies and time, she created a unique (yet based on proven psychological processes and brain research) “8 steps in 8 minutes” routine, has authored Mind Chi Rewire Your Brain in 8 Minutes a Day, and has conducted sessions all over the world.
