International Brain Education Leadership Program IBEL


“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.”

Have you felt the call to be a peacemaker, healer, caregiver, and leader?

Where and how are you poised to be a leader in 2019? And what do you need to become the best leader that you can be for your family, your community, your world, and for yourself?

In 2019, Body & Brain will be offering a new program known as IBEL - International Brain Education Leadership training. IBEL is not just a program, it’s also an identity- it’s the best version of yourself. An IBEL- an International Brain Education Leader- helps empower others to discover their greatest selves.

What’s in the IBEL name?

Quite a bit, in this case. As an IBEL you are the Leader of your own life. That means managing and mastering your own thinking, emotions, habits, and even the information inside and outside your brain. And when it comes time to turn your focus towards helping others, you don’t have to do it all yourself. An IBEL helps others to solve their own problems as the leaders of their own lives.

How? By mastering the principles and practices of Brain Education (BE). BE is a mind-body training system created by Ilchi Lee to activate the potential power of the brain. The 5 steps of BE provide practical, real-life techniques to manage your brain, from sensitizing to versatilizing, refreshing, integrating and mastering. You might already be familiar with these 5 steps as the foundation of Body & Brain yoga, tai chi, breathing, and meditation.

Finally, or perhaps first of all, an IBEL is ‘International’. This doesn’t necessarily mean you are a world-traveler. Rather, it means an IBEL has an International consciousness. Most likely your lifestyle is already ‘international’, connected to people and places through the global flow of materials and information. An IBEL also recognizes this global connection by having an international consciousness, extending beyond the limits of personal and even national boundaries.

For almost 40 years, Ilchi Lee has been sharing the idea that the human brain is the key to solving humanity’s and the earth’s problems. An IBEL takes back control over your own brain. The IBEL programs are designed to help you do this. They consist of 4 levels of training, all based upon Brain Education curriculum.

Level 1 is about sensitizing and versatilizing your brain through daily practice.

Taking back your brain is not a matter of education, wealth, or physical power. It comes from a desperate and sincere desire to achieve the dream of your life. That desperate desire is what allows you to achieve a focused state, and that focused state transforms your mind into a kind of funnel which draws in LifeParticles or Cosmic Energy. When you open up a connection to LifeParticles through pure consciousness, you become a transmitter as well as a receiver, and what you wish is broadcast to the whole world.

If you’re ready to go further in awakening your brain to help yourself and others, IBEL Levels 2, 3 and 4 provide steps towards Brain Mastery.

Brain Mastery means being able to identify and find solutions to the problems in your life. Often, people suffer because they think they lack solutions to their problems. But many of these people cannot correctly identify their problems in the first place. The power to correctly identify your problems and their solutions is Brain Mastery.

Ilchi Lee suggested 5 rules for maximizing the potential of your brain:

  1. 1. Wake up and Pay attention
  2. 2. Good news makes a good brain
  3. 3. Choose. If you choose it, it will happen
  4. 4. Become the master of time and space
  5. 5. Design all circumstances

IBELs embody these principles to create a happier, healthier and more harmonious world for themselves and others. As an IBEL you can share what you have experienced through Brain Education exercises, books, healing tools, or vision, or whatever has touched your heart. If you’re interested in being enlightened to your own original identity through the growth system of the IBEL programs, please speak with an instructor at your local Body & Brain center.
