Developing the “10 foundational strengths” that form the basis of all ability during (1) the Prenatal Stage
The prenatal stage is the most important time for building a “basis for raising your child”. The relationship between mother and child is greatly influenced by how you spend your time while pregnant.
Babies often crying at night can sometimes be due to a lack of communication between the mother and child during the prenatal stage, stemming from feelings of loneliness or neglect on the part of the baby.
Mothers can greatly help the growth of their children by coming to know and understand the enormous potential of their unborn babies, and interacting with them in the right way.
Give your child the groundwork to develop the “10 foundational strengths” that form the basis of everything.
Developing the “10 foundational strengths” that form the basis of all ability during (2) Ages 0~3
At Heguru, we focus on developing the 10 strengths that children need to acquire between infancy and primary school. These strengths will form the basis for all their future abilities and talents.
First, we lay the groundwork for “1. The mind and heart”, followed by teaching them how to control their emotions, or “2. Perseverance”, which forms the basis of their EQ. Through weekly lectures aimed at new mothers, seminars for parents differentiated by age group, and our Parent-Child Co-Learning College, you can learn how to develop your child’s mind and heart from infancy. By applying a wide range of knowledge from psychology and motivational philosophy, you will learn the essential points of how to communicate with your child.
Next, we train our children to heighten their “3. Concentration”. With Heguru lessons, your child’s aptitude for concentration will grow naturally.
Then, we develop their “4. Imaging ability”. This ability to image and visualize is very difficult to develop in later years. The imaging ability that the Heguru Method allows for is nothing short of extraordinary, and that is why we are known for being “World-Class” in this field.
We refer to these first 4 abilities as “the basic zone”.
Developing the “10 foundational strengths” that form the basis of all ability during (3) Ages 4~6
With “the basic zone” in place, we move on to developing what we call “the implementation zone”. They comprise the six essential skills of “5. Memory”, “6. Comprehension”, “7. Adaptability”, “8. Imagination”, “9. Speed reading”, and “10. High-speed processing skills”. With these essential abilities, your child will possess:
Hado Reading; the true worth of a “World-Class Right Brain Development” programme. Ages 7~12 (Primary school children)
In 1997, Heguru CEO Ruiko Henmi first devised this unprecedented and revolutionary method of reading, which enables taking in the whole contents of a book in mere seconds by just flicking through its pages.
On March 3rd, 1999, this reading method was featured on national TV in Japan, on a show called “Unnan no Honto no Tokoro” (TBS), and the reaction from the viewing public was overwhelming; a mixture of astonishment and disbelief.
But many parents also felt that, if this reading method was indeed real and possible, then they too would like to let their children learn and master it.
To call this reading method a type of speed-reading would be inaccurate, as it is so much faster; hence the name Hado Reading.
Hado Reading is indeed very different from regular speed-reading. Speed-reading is the act of reading the actual words on the page, only very rapidly.
As such, it does not really deal with the issue of whether the words are understood or not.
The contents of a book absorbed by Hado Reading differs according to the child. With Hado Reading, the content can be understood through visualization, grasping a specific portion of the text, or getting an overall summary of the text through holistic comprehension.
In interviews with past students who have since grown up and enrolled in universities, we asked them about their memories during childhood and found that they had indeed understood the texts that they had read as children.
Therefore, in 2011, 14 years on from when this remarkable ability was first introduced, we designated the skill of Hado Reading into what we call “the incredible genius zone”.
With the skill of Hado Reading also comes the ability to speed-read.
What is the real goal of Hado Reading?
The real aim of teaching Hado Reading is to raise the “Right Brain Development level of children”, and allow them to excel in their respective special skillsets and talents.
For example, children who are particularly good at English will excel fully in this subject. Children who show particular aptitude for playing the piano will excel at that. Children who display a particular knack for rhythmic gymnastics will excel at that, and so on.
This is because Hado Reading encourages Right Brain Development, which in turn allows for various talents and potentials to advance in leaps and bounds.
Therefore, the Heguru standard of “Unlocking the Right Brain = Making ample use of the Right Brain” is achieved when children learn how to Hado Read.
The Heguru Standard of “World-Class Right Brain Development”; membership of Ichimankai
Children who learn Hado Reading are given an assignment of reading 10 thousand books in a month.
When this assignment is accomplished, they attain membership of Ichimankai. This Ichimankai is exclusively for those who have managed to read 10 thousand books in a month, and provides a forum for a number of advanced sessions.
Since 2015, we have been introducing Primary Classes in our overseas schools, and we anticipate that Ichimankai students will soon emerge outside of Japan too, making Ichimankai a global forum.
We expect a whole array of wonderful and miraculous things to come out of the interaction and exchanges between Ichimankai students from different parts of the world. We want to let as many children as possible experience and share in this sense of excitement and progress.
The 4 abilities exhibited by Ichimankai students
The ability possessed by students who are Ichimankai members is truly beyond the realm of any normal ability or skill. The fours pillars of this special ability are 1.High-speed processing skills, 2.Parallel processing skills, 3.Database-like Instant Memory Access, and 4.Three-dimensional visualization skills. These four key skills form the foundation for superior imaging abilities, and thereby superior cognitive and analytical abilities.
1. High-speed processing skills
“High-speed processing skills” refer to the ability to rapidly process the actual words in a text.
Equipped with these skills, a student who proceeds to study medicine, for example, will be able to understand and memorize almost all of the information contained within a thousand pages of medical textbooks in just 2-3 reads. Some students have even been able to condense an amount of studying that would ordinarily take about 5 hours into a mere 1 hour.
With routine sleeping patterns and ample sleep times, students have also utilized these skills to pass the highly competitive entrance examinations for the so-called “Gosanke”, or Top 3 Secondary Schools in Japan.
2. Parallel processing skills
“Parallel processing skills” refer to the ability to learn several subjects simultaneously by subconsciously visualizing several different versions of one’s self. This is an extraordinary ability that is quite difficult to imagine with just the standard Left Brain-focused way of thinking. It involves a highly advanced merging of the conscious and subconscious mind.
3. Database-like Instant Memory Access
“Database-like Instant Memory Access” entails building a brain circuitry that can instantaneously memorize visual stimuli, and having the ability to organize this information in the mind much like a database in a computer.
Normally, memorizing something involves repeating it over and over in the mind, through speech and writing. However, with this instant memory access, you will be able to store a vast amount of information in your memory instantly, much like a photocopier can copy a large amount of text in a matter of seconds. The texts you read are stored in your subconscious mind, just like a database, and the contents of these texts will move about and link up in your instant recall.
4. Three-dimensional visualization skills
“Three-dimensional visualization skills” allow you to see the most subtle and minute phenomena, not normally detectable, in 3D. This information can be highly invaluable in a whole variety of endeavours. For instance, you will be able to detect and observe the psychological state of another person as if it were something you held in your hand, enabling you to steer your conversation or relationship in the best direction possible.
Ichimankai students’ achievements are constantly evolving → Abilities that you want them to exhibit as adults
4. Three-dimensional visualization skills
These refer to the abilities that Ichimankai students exhibit on a daily basis once they enter their teenage years and young adulthood.
With Ichimankai sessions and Intermediate PAD (Potential Ability Development) seminars, their levels of success will rise with each passing year.
Although there already are children in middle school and high school who participate in these sessions, they are effectively open to any student who has achieved Ichimankai membership status.
Even more importantly, applying these skills to further challenges such as university entrance examinations or professional careers, we believe that students can make a true and lasting contribution to society.
It is also our hope that Ichimankai students who go on to spread their wings all over the globe, will come together and collaborate, to achieve new heights of success hitherto unseen in this world.
