a mind-expanding cocktail
Music is one of the few things that can activate all areas of the brain. For our 4th “Music & the Brain” salon, we will examine how music shapes our thoughts, energy, and ultimately our destiny. Your mind will be blown.
At The Brain Bar Salon, we are used to showcasing stories, show n' tell about what cool things we are doing after brain injury to shine a light on what is possible. In this Brain Bar, we are going to show and make everyone feel what we struggle with day after day to WALK away with more empathy, compassion, understanding, and hope to make the world a better place.
Many dreams are broken. That is where we get the term "Broken Brains." After a brain injury, we lose hope, think we are not good enough, never going to be able to do what we used to, and limit ourselves to opportunities all around us.
What if through The Brain Bar Salon, we are able to create a new realm of possibilities around discovering, remapping, and achieving our new selves so that we are able to go out and create a life that is meaningful. We can create new possibilities instead of limiting ourselves to "Broken Brains."
I know we can because I have been navigating my new life on this journey for the past 24 years after my brain aneurysm. I look forward to inviting experts with fresh perspectives for a dialogue that will help transform all of our own possibilities.
This 2022, we are going to surprise you at each of The Brain Bar Salons.
Previously, our guest speakers included Jim Kwik, Celebrity
Brain Coach; Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, Brain Scientist, NYT Best Seller "My Stroke of Insight," & 7th most viewed TED Talk; Moran Cerf, Hacker turned Neuroscientist; Matthew Zachary, Founder of Stupid Cancer; and many more. We can't wait to reveal our guests for this year and serve YOU a mind-expanding cocktail.
"MUSIC & THE BRAIN"
- Finding the alchemy in music -
Friday, November 18th, 2022
Starts Promptly at 6:30pm EST
Show starts at 7:30pm EST
(Online doors open at 7:30pm EST)
We believe in showcasing just what can be done using the power of our brain.
The Brain Bar Salon
is a gathering of like-minded individuals celebrating people within our brain community. We share stories and expand perspectives through the power of conversation. Alongside live entertainment, we hear talks on the selected theme and connect with one another for a tasteful evening.
At the end of the night, we all learn something new about our amazing brains.
How the evening unfolds
People from all across the brain community meet and greet - i.e. Doctors, patients, survivors, caregivers, family, all in one place
Each month has a theme "xxx and the Brain" and there will be 3 guest speakers sharing what they are up to right now and how it relates to the theme.
As the "salon" format
goes, in between each guest we open it up for questions because 10 minutes isn't enough and others will be intrigued by the share.
This is where the magic happens. We open up the floor for everyone to have the best ideas and most important conversations that come from these shares.

"Being a part of the night and speaking to the presenters made it feel like a dialogue and I would DEFINITELY invite anyone who is thinking about it, to get to a Brain Bar event. Bring your curiosity and an open mind. There is so much perspective to share and gain from the events and I know you will enjoy them as much as I do."
