IPNB and Empathy Teleseminar in May, Tuesday evening 5/30 at 7pm Pacific time: The Precuneus and the Sense of Self: Differentiating Self from Other (90 minutes with optional 30 min q&a afterwards)
How do we know who we are? What forms us and gives us a sense of self? How do we know others? And how do we tell others apart from ourselves? These are the questions that we will investigate during May’s teleseminar. The more we know about how we know ourselves, the easier it is to understand where things may have gone awry. In order to fully exist, we need to be seen, understood and reflected with empathy. We also do much better when we exist within the brains of the people who are closest to us. When those people can hold a consistent and reliable representation of us within them, when those people can remember us, we learn to know and remember ourselves. Join Sarah for an exploration of self in relationship with other.
