The human mind is the singularly most complicated device on the planet. Versatile, by definition, it single-handedly conducts every complicated process and function needed to run the human system. It allows us to think, grow, create and, perhaps most impressively, to learn. But, just what can we learn? Is there a limitation to our subject matter, or a limitation to the rate at which we learn? For years, everyone from experts, to college students to everyone and anyone in-between have asked this question from all over the world. Just how smart are we? Can we learn more? What are our limits?
But what of our limitations? Beyond all the theories of how much we can do, people began to speculate about what we could not do. When and where do we stop? Are intelligence and learning capacity like a measuring cup, and we as vessels limited to only hold a certain amount? Or, is it more like a scale that can weigh as much as it’s given to evaluate? This question has been asked over and over. Eventually, experts would agree that past a certain stage of development that there were no uncharted “lands” in the human psyche. The reserve capacity was met, and we were maxed out. Then, in the early 1960’s, brilliant Bulgarian educator and psychiatrist Georgi Lozanov would challenge this idea and change the course of human history forever by developing what we now know as “Accelerated learning™” or Suggestopedia. Suggestopedia is a learning/teaching technique based on Dr. Lozanov's very early 1965 studies, long before what would later become the legacy, career and life’s work spent mentoring to students and teachers alike across the world, alongside his partner and wife, Dr. Evelina Gateva. Their combined efforts on the theory and practice of suggestion, would go on to trigger an accelerated learning movement in the West while imitators and usurpers tried to make a name for themselves off of Dr. Lozanov’s and Dr. Gateva's hard work.
