The opportunity to explore mind/body unity… has made me reconsider my teaching strategies completely.

ColumbiaTeachersCollegePost-Graduate Studies
Dr. Dimon offers theoretical courses in Psychophysical Education as an adjunct professor at Columbia University Teachers College. Registration is open to all Columbia University graduate students. Students working toward a Masters degree in Psychology in Education can pursue a concentration in Psychophysical Education by completing all three courses listed below.

  • The Undivided Self: Psychophysical Education and its Relation to Learning and Health
    In this class, we discuss pyschophysical education as an aspect of child development and look at how this new field applies to such diverse areas as education and health and motor development. The course can be taken by students of any discipline.  Students are encouraged to focus on applications in their particular area of interest as part of their course work.
  • Awareness and the Human Experience
    This course explores awareness as a skill that can be developed and pursued as a legitimate educational aim. We look at awareness as a new dimension in psychology and education and how it applies to various fields of study. Students of all disciplines are welcome to attend.
  • Dimon Institute Conservatory Practicum
    The Dimon Institute’s Conservatory Practicum is available for extra credit to students who are enrolled in, or have completed either of the theoretical courses listed above. This unique opportunity provides graduate students with up to two semesters of intensive practical instruction in psychophysical education at the Dimon Institute.

Doctoral Research Programs
The Dimon Institute seeks Columbia University doctoral students interested in the further development, analysis, and implementation of Neurodynamic theory and psychophysical education in a variety of fields. Our first program, launching September 2016, will research pyschophysical health and curriculum and teaching techniques in early childhood. 

As I study coordination and how that relates to stress, health and skilled activity, I am becoming less reactive to everything around me. I feel more present and stable. I’m finally learning to relax.
