I have never been so moved to recommend a performance; the power of Hannah Gadsby's brilliant "comedy routine" is a revolutionary work of art. Hannah demonstrates how trauma can be healed by telling our "stories properly". Embodying fury and resilience and deep connection, her bravery paves the way for her audience to walk away stronger. I am in awe of one of the best mantras ever: "There is nothing stronger than a broken woman who has rebuilt herself".
Nearly everyday, someone asks how to manage the difficulties of living with so much cruelty in our world. Watching children being torn from their parents at our borders is excruciating. Tara Brach, brilliant meditation teacher and psychotherapist, always offers sage wisdom and advice in navigating the pain and learning to be a better citizen of this troubled world. In this talk, she helps us recognize how we learn to make others "unreal humans", which then makes it possible to treat them as less than human.
Jimmy Hendrix said, "The world will know peace when the power of love overcomes the love of power". This beautiful little film will open your heart to the power of love.
Our right and left brains view the world and their roles in very different ways. Iain McGilchrist’s research on our two hemisphere’s ways of experiencing the world offers a challenging and important perspective of our current relational struggles and world conflicts. Watch for the upcoming documentary of the same title that he is creating with comedian John Cleese.
Daniel Siegel demonstrates how we carry a model of our brains in the palm of our hand, and how when we lose our tempers "we flip our lids". Dan is the brilliant originator of Interpersonal Neurobiology, and has helped change the way we understand ourselves as we relate to other human beings.
