Welcome to
The Neuroscience Training Summit 2017

Over the last few decades, powerful discoveries in the field of neuroscience have transformed such diverse fields as psychotherapy and medical care, education, parenting, intimate relationships, business and leadership, and even spiritual development. In many instances, neuroscience has provided the “missing key” that has helped us unlock greater understanding, intimacy, health, and well-being.

For many non-scientists, however, getting to the core of this newly discovered wisdom is no easy task. It is difficult to know where to even start. Sounds True would like to help.

We are excited to announce the launch of The Neuroscience Training Summit 2017, with a whole new array of presenters, teachers, authors, and experts in the field, who are committed to helping you to apply these revolutionary discoveries in your life, whether you have a scientific background or not. Not only will you learn the latest theory and research, but it will be presented in a way that is designed for practical application, where you can use these discoveries to make changes in how you live, love, and learn.

I was amazed last year—as part our of 2016 summit—to receive so many letters from participants around the world who shared how they had benefitted from the series, and how immensely practical they found the teachings to be. Whether you are looking transform a stuck relationship, have more energy and clarity to accomplish your goals, break an old habit, begin to heal old trauma, or open to greater spiritual awareness, this all-new series has been designed with you in mind.

To go even deeper with this wealth of information, we’re offering a special upgrade package that gives you lifetime access to the teaching sessions of each presenter and much more.

2016 PARTICIPANT TESTIMONIALS
large quotation marks

I was very impressed with the caliber of speakers, the breadth of approaches to the topic of neuroscience, and the speakers’ abilities to distill down such huge topics into a meaningful one-hour conversations.

large quotation marks

I could feel the passion from each presenter of the summit as they spoke about their particular topic of expertise. As a viewer who is not a specialist in the field, I learned SO MUCH about neuroscience from this summit. My mind was opened to so many aspects—I feel that I can now relate to others with a greater sense of empathy and curiosity . . . I thank Sounds True for providing the opportunity to experience such a life-altering learning outlet, and each presenter who managed to communicate such potentially complicated elements of the brain in a way that I fully understood.

large quotation marks

Do this! I am a layman. I will never see the brain or mind in the same way. I will never feel bad about my negative thoughts again because I know I'm programmed to have them, but I now have new ways to deal with them!

large quotation marks

Worthwhile. Gives you a profound understanding of what it is to be human and what is truly at play in our behaviors and responses. By gaining insight and awareness we are able to make positive changes in our own personal development and help initiate positive change in others.
