This week there was another message from the Founders of Heguru. It appears that this is to be a regular feature at the end of the class. The message this week was from Hirotada Henmi. This is not the message verbatim but my interpretation of what I heard.
The Importance of Infant Education
In the house of knowledge, love forms the foundation upon which affection and sensibilities are built. The roof of the house is knowledge.
When raising a child, discipline is necessary. However, it is not enough to simply scold a child. We must also convey love. Hold and hug your child and provide the physical contact necessary to convey your love.
Infant education is important for nurturing the intellect. It should be done in infancy because infancy is when the subconscious is strongest. By the time a child turns 6 years old, the consciousness has fully emerged and you can no longer take advantage of subconscious learning.
The Role of the Subconscious in Learning
The subconscious is freely available in infancy and it is like a large vessel prepared to accept new things. As a result, young children are capable of absorbing vast amounts of information quickly and easily. Therefore it is important to take advantage of the subconscious during this window of opportunity where it is available.
Right Brain Training
Heguru has been around for 30 years and over these years they have seen the effectiveness of training the right brain. Daily training helps to develop potential abilities.
