BOI's Holistic Life Mastery Program (HLM)

HLM is the best program available today for those interested in living and teaching or practicing counseling and healing from a holistic approach.

The holistic path to health and happiness leads to a life of inner harmony between the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of life.

The student that becomes a Holistic Life Master is uniquely well prepared to work as a Life Coach, Wellness Coach, Holistic Counselor, Nutritional Counselor or Consciousness Psychology Counselor, or simply as a Holistic Life Master.

In the United States, and in most countries in the world, these professions are not regulated, therefore, our graduate student is entitled to present him/herself to the public using any of the above unregulated titles.

We also train our student to develop the necessary business and marketing skills to create a successful in-person and online private practice, capable of attracting and serving clients all over the world.

Some teachings will tell you that "desire is your worst enemy, the source of all your
sufferings." Is it true? Not necessarily -- desire is natural.
But, what about the "I" belief we imagine to be the "owner" of the desire?
Is it really "my" desire? -- Gian Girardi

10 Minute Guided Meditation

This 10 minute video-meditation is based on the Advaita or non-dual tradition. Advaita's
gentle approach to meditation is unsurpassed -- in simplicity and effectiveness.
All video loops were taped in the Ganges, India. 

Meditation consists of shifting the attention from mind to Consciousness. This guided
meditation goes through three steps. The first one is a guided physical relaxation -- physical
relaxation is not meditation but it prepares the body for meditation. The second part is a
guided mental relaxation -- again mental relaxation is not meditation but it prepares the mind
for meditation. The third part is meditation itself and it guides you to shift the attention
from mind to consciousness or awareness.

A ten minute meditation can be helpful, but sometimes too short to go deep.  For a deeper expereince we
recommend the complete 30 min video-meditation at:

Non-Duality can be summarized this way: If the "me" is not present,
everything is fine! -- Gian Girardi

Prerequisites

Brain Optimization Institute encourages our students to complete first their high school studies before enrolling in our courses. However, there are no prerequisites to participate in any of the certifications. The only requisite is the students passion and desire to learn

Who are the Founders?

The founders of the Brain Optimization Institute are Viviana Girardi, B.A. CYT and Gian Paolo Girardi, MS, MA.

Viviana Girardi was born in one of the most beautiful places on the planet in the southern part of Chile.  From early childhood she felt a natural inclination towards sports and physical education. She graduated from the University of Chile with a Bachelor's in physical education. In her early twenties she felt a deep interest in the spiritual life and Yoga.  Viviana has practiced Yoga for over thirty years. She was certified as a Yoga teacher by Erich Shiffman and has been teaching Yoga, and leading healing retreats, for five years at the University of Healing Arts. Viviana is also an accomplished cook and teaches culinary arts at UHA.

Gian Paolo was born into an Italian/Spanish family in South America.  From early childhood he felt a great interest in science and later for the humanities, especially for Spiritual Psychology.  At 24, he graduated in engineering from the most prestigious University in Chile at that time.  After marrying Viviana, at 30, their spiritual interests brought them to the U.S.  Here, Gian Paolo completed a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology and obtained a State License to practice psychotherapy.  He has accumulated extensive clinical and coaching experience, gained through twenty one years of working with clients.

Eventually Gian Paolo renounced his license as a statement of personal independence from the mainstream, with its adherent traps and regulations. He presently devotes his time to education and his vision for BOI. For over thirty years, Gian Paolo has also been deeply involved in studying nutrition and also spiritual teachings of all sorts. His greatest passion is Non-Duality.

This course is also taught in the time-proven, mentoring, one on one format. This allows the student to receive optimal instruction in person or from the comfort of their home anywhere in the world, through Skype or phone. Each module includes a 3-hour video class followed by a 1-hour one on one class with the teacher


PC-101: The Soul Level -- Healing Through the Expanded Perspective of the Soul. This course includes the following topics:
The birth of individuality -- how the souls comes into being and becomes separated from Consciousness. Levels of soul development. The soul's compassionate accountability. Vocation is a soul issue. Finding the client's soul vocation. Life purpose and the script for an incarnation. The agreements we signed for before incarnating, and how they control our experience. Application of the soul perspective to counseling, most especcially to dealing with lossess and grief.

PC-102: The Map of Consciousness. Understanding Human Emotions

The kinesiological test a window to discern truth from falsehood. Assessing and healing shame, guilt, despair, fear, sadness, anger and excessive pride, and how to approach these issues in counseling. Applying the Map of Consciousness to the spiritual path -- discerning true from false spiritual teachings.

PC-103: From Victor to Vehicle

The student learns to use the powerful Victim, Victor and Vehicle model to help his or her client move from the Traditional to the Metaphysical and eventually to the Mystical state. This paradigm is a great assessment tool, and helps the client realize where he or she is stuck in the victim role or in the victor (metaphysical) role. Additionally, it points the precise direction they need to move towards, to firmly establish themselves in the Vehicle, Mystical state.

PC-104: Living a Life Free of Expectations

Expectations are a source of suffering. A life free of expectations is an enlightened life. Even positive expectations can be frustrated and create suffering. In the beginning, through metaphysics, we learn to let go of negative expectations and create positive expectations. However, spiritual maturity leads to the next step where we let go of expectation altogether -- positive and negative.

PC-105: The Power of Surrender

Surrender might be the fastest and easiest path to enlightenment -- the realization that "I am Consciousness." Surrender has many faces and here the student is presented with the most significant ones. One of them is the art of surrendering to the present moment. This requires to challenge the idea that time is real and that past and future exist.

PC-106: The Power of Bhakti Yoga

The student is introduced to the main four types of yoga – Bhakti Yoga, Psycho-physiological Yogas, Karma Yoga and Jnana Yoga. Understanding this classification allows the yoga practitioner, or spiritual aspirant, to choose the right type of spiritual path (or yoga) for him or her -- one that really suits their personality. Here the student learns most especially about the highest form of Bhakti Yoga which is, "Surrender to the Divine." Surrender to the Divine, in any form the Bhakti may conceive It, is a fast path to liberation and manifestation of soul potential.

Billions across the planet practice some form of Bhakti Yoga -- Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus and so on. Because most counselors have clients participating in one of these major religions, we consider that a qualified counselor must understand the Bhakti Yoga path -- with its pros and cons.


PC-107: The Great Jnanis (Non-Duality Sages) of India

Here the student learns about the lives and teachings of the great Jnanis of India, the founding fathers of Non-duality in East and West. Their teachings include invaluable practices and concepts like Self-inquiry, the relative vs. the absolute perspective, free will vs. predetermination, Liberation by relinquishing the sense of autorship, and more.

PC-108: The Modern Advaitists of the West

The modern Advaitists of the West are transforming our world from inside out. Here the student is taught how to live life from the center of his or her perceptions -- Awareness -- and, how to see the Divine not only beyond things, but also in everything -- Oneness.

What Our Students Have to Say
about BOI

"My classes for Brain Nutrition, Life/Wellness Coaching and Psychology of Consciousness, have been invaluable to my practice. The one on one sessions on the phone were the best medium for learning rather than being one of many students in a class. I had the privledge of learning from Gian Paolo personally, and being on the phone rather than in person enabled me to focus more deeply on what I was learning in each particular class. These classes were some of the best learning experiences I have ever had. I highly recommend these to anyone who wants to have an in depth learning experience with a man of great knowledge."

Suzanne,
Wellness Consultant, San Francisco

----------

The quality of education I received at BOI is beyond compare. The teacher to student ratio is exceptional, often one on one! This allows BOI to offer quality education in a uniquely personalized environment. I highly recommend Gian Paolo Girardi as a professor and the BOI for an exceptional experience. I loved the books chosen for the course. I also really liked the emphasis in discussing real cases to help the student develop clinical skills. I enjoyed the class atmosphere and it felt always comfortable to share personal concerns and experiences.

I most enjoyed the class structure and content, I also enjoyed the sequence of the classes and the component of doing the psychometric tests to review the way to diagnose clients during class. The variety of books was excellent. I would love to be contacted for testimonials on web-site or call Very satisfied with the course - Thank you.

One on one mentoring program:

From the beginning we have worked with small groups or one-on-one. As a result, it has become clear to us that teaching a single student, is markedly superior to working with a group – even a small group.

One-on-one teaching provides the best setting to help the student with the unique professional and personal challenges that could interfere with the achievement of his or her goals. This type of teaching/mentoring is extremely effective; though quite difficult to find these days.

Mentoring provides the student with the maximum flexibility in scheduling. There is no need to wait for a predetermined date to begin a course, nor to commit to a rigid class schedule. The teacher and student simply meet on a weekly basis at a time and date that is suitable for both.

If you are interested in our mentoring program please call us at 310-455-6815

How I Got My Brain Back

This is the transcript of a video, recorded by Gian Paolo Girardi, MS, MA, founder of the Brain Optimization Institute.

Hi, thanks for watching. What I am about to share with you here is possibly, the most painful experience I have had during this lifetime.
 
I tell this personal story with hope that it will improve the lives of individuals suffering from brain disorders. I especially hope to influence the lives of children and their parents. 
 
I was born in Santiago, Chile and grew up in a farm with pure air, clean water and abundant food. My mother, of Spanish origin, was a bridge teacher and is to this day, admired for her intelligence. My father was Italian and was also intellectually quite sharp. He graduated from high school at 16 and received a degree in agricultural engineering. 
 
So, partly due to good genes, but also because of growing up in a healthy environment, I developed a fairly good brain. 
 
When I was seventeen, in order to attend University, I took the SAT test. 
 
As it was customary in Chile the results were published in the main newspaper of Santiago. I was pleasantly surprised to see that I had obtained one of the highest scores in the country: 725 for math and 796 for verbal abilities. 
 
Years later, I learned that SAT numbers correlate with IQ. My SAT numbers were indicative of an IQ of 153, in the 99.97th percentile of the population. 
 
So, no doubt that, at least at that point in time, I had a healthy brain.  
 
With those scores, I could choose any university and career I wanted. I decided to study engineering and signed up for the most prestigious engineering school in Chile. For many years, I did well in my studies. 
 
However, during my fifth year in engineering I became very interested in yoga and embraced the ovo-lacto vegetarian diet. I had grown up eating massive amounts of red meat -- after all my father also raised cattle. 
 
Perhaps I rushed into these changes too quickly; Just a year into my new diet I began to notice a significant decrease in my concentration. 
 
When taking tests at school I developed a tendency to make one mistake after another.
 
My grades descended and I even failed a course that my friends passed without problem. I finally graduated, but my last two years were a struggle. My lack of concentration gradually got worse. To make matters worse, my lifestyle became significantly ungrounded. I was meditating three hours a day, but my life was not improving. 
 
At the age of 28, I experienced a brief breakthrough in my meditations. For about four months I was in joy all day long for no reason at all. It was an interesting experience in unconditional joy. 
 
However, it was also a prelude to the worst years of my life. 
 
One day, without warning, I had a panic attack. The joy was gone and it was replaced by a state of constant anxiety that lasted for many, many years. 
 
In fact, years later, when I took the Burns Anxiety Inventory, I scored more than 50 points, which indicates “extreme anxiety.” I was experiencing the most uncomfortable anxiety symptoms, day and night. 
 
At thirty, I married, and my wife and I decided to try for a better life in the United States. I always had great admiration and appreciation for this country so, that same day, immediately after the marriage ceremony, we flew to LA. 
 
Upon my arrival in LA, my anxiety continued and worsened. One of the most painful symptoms was exhaustion. As an immigrant, during the first years I had to do intense physical work. Survival became a very painful challenge. 
 
I tried introspection, affirmations, more meditation, breathing techniques every five minutes, psychotherapy, but nothing was really helping -- I was just barely coping. When I was 35, I injured myself on a job, demolishing walls in a house. At the chiropractor’s office, I found a brochure titled: “Hypoglycemia Can Create Anxiety.” 
 
I found a book on hypoglycemia at the bookstore that described most of my symptoms, persuading me to try the diet recommended in the book. 
 
I didn't even have to abandon my vegetarian diet. 
 
In three days I felt a new person! I was really surprised at the power of a simple nutritional intervention. 
 
Now that I had more energy, I signed up for a Masters Degree in psychology and in a few years I obtained the MFT license from the State of California, to practice psychotherapy. 
 
With the new diet, most of my anxiety symptoms were gone, but, my attention deficit was virtually intact. 
 
I took the TOVA test and scored positive. The Tova test is the most reliable and objective test to diagnose ADD. I took it again and I scored positive again. There was no doubt that I had a full blown ADD. ADD is supposed to be a disorder starting at childhood. However, as I learned nutritional mistakes can result in a full blown ADD, at any age. 
 
About six years ago a friend of mine -- Larry Richardson, an Acupuncturist -- introduced me to the concept of brain nutrition. 
 
I began using supplements and in a month, took the TOVA test again. 
 
This time my scores in attention and impulse control were not only normal but ABOVE normal. The ADD had completely vanished. 
 
I continue taking my brain supplements every day, at maintenance levels. I include fish in my diet and very occasionally some poultry or red meat. 
 
I work more than 65 hours a week. The brain I was originally blessed with has completely returned.
 
In fact, I would dare to say that -- despite the fact that IQ is supposed to decrease as we age – today, thanks to a sensible diet, the brain supplements and continual intellectual stimulation, I feel that my brain is sharper than when I was young. 

 In my own healing journey I opted for nutrition over medication -- I can’t tell you how happy I am in this decision. Despite a high IQ, I have done stupid things like everyone, however, the decision to avoid the pharmaceuticals and use brain nutrition was a very, very intelligent decision. 
 
Thanks to that decision, today I have my brain back.

How the Brain Optimization™ Institute Business Model is Easy
on the Planet

The business model for the Brain Optimization Institute is environmentally friendly. By participating online, our students do not need waste time and energy coming to our offices. Therefore, they do not spend in gasoline, contaminate, and contribute to global warming. The same is valid for our teachers -- by broadcasting the classes from home they do not need to commute to teach a class.  An interesting example is the case of the founders; their cars move so little that a tank of gasolline last them more than a month! ADDITIONALLY, BOI is close to become a completely paperless organization.

What is Brain Nutrition and Why it Is so Crucial

According to solid scientific research and clinical experience, anyone suffering from depression, anxiety, ADHD, substance abuse, chronic pain, or any form of mental or brain issue, can derive established benefit by using a drug-free, affordable nutritional approach. The Brain Optimization Institute’s philosophy, based on research and clinical experience, is that nutrition should be an essential part of any serious attempt to improve mental health and brain functioning.

We have found a powerful and effective Brain Nutrition approach based on both the latest research
and years of clinical experience.

This approach is designed to safely and effectively optimize two of the most powerful systems in the human body – the neurotransmitters in the brain and the glucose pathway in the body and brain.

Neurotransmitters are powerful chemicals, critical to the correct functioning of the brain. Unfortunately, many of our actions and habits can compromise their proper and balanced presence. Deficient diet, lack of physical exercise, job dissatisfaction, conflictive interpersonal relationships, heavy metals in the environment; can each, over time, create neurotransmitter deficiencies in the brain.

Considering that the brain controls and affects every
single aspect of our lives, nurturing and caring for our brain, as if our life depends upon it, is the epitome of good common sense.

Can I Help Others and Myself Through Brain Nutrition?

The Certification in Brain Nutrition Counseling™ offered at our Institute is the first of its kind in the US. Despite the voluminous research demonstrating that Brain Nutrition improves mental health and well-being, this powerful healing approach has been neglected, by mainstream medicine, and to a great extent, also by alternative medicine.

If you are already a health care provider you can include this powerful modality in your repertoire of healing techniques. Our clinical experience proves that by helping the brain, you help the entire body and mind. If you wish to help yourself, relatives and friends or begin seeing clients, this exciting healing modality is worth of serious consideration.

Contact us at 310-455-6815
or write us to Gian@brainoptimization.com

Classes are presented online and in-person, in groups or one on one.

What Is Unique about
BOI's Certification in
Psychology of Consciousness

Unique of its kind, possibly the first certification course in the world designed to awaken the student to his/her true nature, embody the Awakening, and learn to help others to also wake up.

The student learns the most enlightened and up to date Consciousness Psychology paradigms, with special focus on Non-Duality -- a manifestation of the Truth truly relevant to today's life challenges.

Although all serious spiritual teachings point to the same Truth, their effectiveness depends on whether the language used is simple, practical and relevant to the current times and culture.

This course content is not a one-sided approach that boxes the student's creativity, thinking and spiritual development. On the contrary, the course is a presentation and application of a multi-paradigm approach to Psychology of Consciousness, conducive to the expression of the student’s unique creativity and intuition.

We offer our student a uniquely personalized training and attention throughout the whole program.

Classes are held online and in-person.

What is Unique about BOI's
10-Month Course in Life/Wellness Coaching with Emphasis in Cognitive Psychology


Our student begins by learning a most unique approach to self-caring not available anywhere else; a grand unifying paradigm, that encompasses most contemporary self-development methods. This holistic approach addresses the self at all levels - physical, mental and spiritual.

This unifying paradigm, was born out of our own research at the Brain Optimization Institute that proved a deceptively simple, but powerful truth -- “There is a significant correlation between self-caring and happiness.”

Simply put, the better our self care the happier we are likely to be. Additionally, of course, self-caring is fundamental to the attainment of meaningful goals.

Inability to live an authentic life - setting and pursuing meaningful goals in harmony with our true self - leads to psychopathology. During the Life/Wellness Coaching Course our student learns how to prevent and heal psychopathology, by helping their client with skillful vocational counseling.

Life and Wellness Coaching, rightly understood and applied, are a powerful healing art. Therefore, at BOI we aim at preparing a Life/Wellness Coach that is also a healer of body, mind and soul.

Our student learns coaching/counseling mehods designed to identify and facilitate the manifestation of authentic, personal goals and potential. A career in Life/Wellness Coaching at BOI offers vital opportunities and knowledge for personal development, as well as an exciting field of study and work.

The curriculum presents a combination of fundamental paradigms and methods, working harmoniously to help our student, and later their clients, to move quickly from the suffering of the victim state, to the relief of the victor state
.

This is not a Life/Wellness Coaching program merely focused on short-term goals, like getting a promotion at work.  It is a system capable of bringing forth profound transformation at multiple levels, first in the student and then in their clients.

The student receives uniquely personalized training and attention throughout the whole program. The course is offered in the group format once a year and in the one on one mentoring format all year long, any time a student feels ready to start his or her training. The course is presented in-person in Los Angeles or on Skype or phone worldwide.

Is the Holistic Life Mastery Program for You?

This program increases the student's chance to succeed in their counselor / healer / teacher career significantly. The academic preparation he/she obtains throughout this 2-year program is unparalelled, and the 10-month coaching business section of the program provides the students with all the fundamental business knowledge necessary to succeed.
