Georgi Lozanov (Bulgarian: Георги Лозанов; 22 July 1926 – 6 May 2012), known as 'the father of accelerated learning', was a Bulgarian scientist, neurologist, psychiatrist, psychologist and educator, creator of suggestology, suggestopedia (or 'suggestopaedia', an experimental branch of suggestology for use in pedagogy), and integrated psychotherapy. He developed suggestopedia, a learning/teaching theory based on his early-1960s study of suggestion which is known as "suggestology".Lozanov's theory and practice triggered an accelerated learning movement in the West, where various techniques not originally included in the Lozanov's theory were introduced. Such techniques included elements such as breathing, visualization, and biofeedback. Read more on Wikipedia
