Welcome to The Genie in Your Genes online course. I am so happy to welcome you to this program. By taking the course, you're declaring your intention to change your gene expression to enhance your health, happiness and longevity. I look forward to our journey together.
This is a 12 week course, and during this time my goal is to introduce you to the most useful cutting-edge ideas in biology, and train you in 12 science-based skills that apply them in practice.
Here’s how to get the most from the course: Each week, you receive an information-packed video based on one or two chapters of my book The Genie in Your Genes. Each week concludes by teaching you a simple yet practical skill. I know that some people are auditory rather than visual learners, so you’ll also find an audio file of the video that you can download to your wireless mobile device. If you're a verbal learner, each week also includes a written transcript of the video, and a PDF of the book chapter.
Make sure you either watch, listen to, or read each week's material. On the navigation bar above, you'll see the links for Weeks 1 through 12. Week 1 is live now. Week 2 will become live seven days after Week 1, Week 3 seven days later, and so on. Don’t jump ahead; each week’s skill is carefully designed to build on the week before. And don't forget you'll have access to all the previous weeks for one full year after your purchase.
To reinforce what you've learned each week, you'll find a Mini-Quiz at the bottom of each page. This contains 5 to 10 questions drawn from that particular chapter in the book. It's a great way to cement your knowledge of the material in your mind. You can take each quiz as often as you wish.
