An idea worth spreading
We all need more knowledge of our own brains. A crucial example--we are the most intelligent species to walk the Earth, but we are bringing about our--and the planet's--demise. The brain that we have evolved is not working in the current environment we've created. Can we come to understand and so compensate for our weaknesses? Can we do so fast enough to save ourselves and those at our mercy?
I'm passionate about
Sustainable development, including microloans and education including for girls and women, environmentalism, culture and travel, brain-based educational practices, healing ourselves and the planet
