Show Notes

In this episode I preview some of the practical ways we can begin to un-muddle our minds.  We can use our growing understanding about the different nature of our two hemispheres to re-balance the influence of our left hemisphere (LH) and our right hemisphere (RH).  

Since LH dominance causes distortions of reality, we should search for strategies to control LH influence.  At the same time, we should find  strategies to  pump up engagement with RH perspectives.  Strategies we will begin to explore include: 

  • MEDITATION - How can meditation balance the influence of the two hemispheres?
  • THE USE OF LANGUAGE - How does the language we use push our minds towards the perspective of one hemisphere or the other?
  • METAPHORS - How do some metaphors encourage LH modes of thinking while others ground us in RH perspectives? 
  • WORLD VIEWS - How do our philosophies favor one hemisphere over the other? 
  • PSYCHEDELICS & MYSTICISM - Can psychedelic and mystical experiences jolt our minds out of LH dominance and restore hemispheric balance?
