Education is for Everybody’s Brain

Learning is the most natural thing our brain can do. All our brains.

Education is a basic human right and an amazing gift. Why does learning sometimes seem so hard and school sometimes seem counter to it?

Current understanding of Neuroplasticity is informing us that there are better ways to learn and to teach. We can all make our own smarts to be more and do more. We have choices. Our brain want to learn. They just need to know why they should!

We love to inspire confidence to learn for life, to teach for learning and to share the human joy that is science. It really should be easy.

“Let’s not be dictated to by the “grades” we get but by the passion and determination we develop as natural learners.”

Wellness is in Every Body’s Biology

Being “well” is our body’s natural tendency. We rock!

We are living in the Age of Biology. We observe that those who choose to learn about their bodies will have a greater choice about what their future lives will be like.

Current understanding of the biology of wellness lets us in on just how much we can do to enable the body to be well naturally. It informs us of a range of evidence for complementary and modern medicine to support us.

We love to demystify the language of health and disease to aid an understanding of how our bodies keep us well. We celebrate the beauty that is biology and the empowered choices for wellbeing and integrated healthcare we can all make.

“Let’s not let healthcare be done ‘to us’ but done ‘with us’”

Sharing Nature's Pharmacy

Our natural environment has provided us with the building blocks for life since life began. Nature was our first pharmacy and is still serving that function for much of life on earth.

Much of what we need for our bodies to be “well” comes best from nature. Getting back to the basics of nutrition, balance and plant based modalities provides a powerful start.

The resurgence of interest in nutritional medicine and aromatherapy reflects this. The evidence is mounting. The new Aromatherapy has become a big part of our approach to wellness and to support of learning. It’s basic biology and it is a very considered decision to share it here.

“Let’s celebrate the science of nature and the nature of science for our wellbeing. Let’s Embrace the power of educated choice”

A message from
Kery O’Neill

Founder and Director


Great to see you visiting. I love that, like us, you might be excited to investigate your choices! That was why Active Axons got started in 2008. Go for it!

The combination of things you find here has its base in research, personal experience and the experiences of those I love.

These experiences suggest that Healthcare and Education can appear to be ‘done to you’ rather than ‘with you’. I would really like to see that change because with the evidence we have available to us, it really can!

We have found that people who know how their brain learn have much more power to make their own smarts and get the most from their learning, and people who have a basic understanding of their own biology have much greater choice in their approach to health and wellness. Science, nature, learning and health have a synergy.

Please have a look around and feel free to reach out. We all need to know what’s in it for us. It’s the basic biology of survival.

Life is amazing! I have a deep, and often expressed, passion for all things biology and all things learning. Over the last 8 years this passion has extended to include all things essential oils. Initially a surprise to my friends for sure! I loved it when a student called me “your essential biologist” to summarise my professional hats!

My family are working hard to develop a similar passion for cricket. I love them, but true passion for cricket is proving to be a very slow process.
