TBD

Sponsored by:
Health Improvement Program, HELP Center, Health and Human Performance

Our mainstream culture is built on unexamined structures of thought inherited from previous generations. In this talk, followed by interactive practice and discussion, Jeremy Lent will identify historical foundations of our modern worldview and show how, by becoming mindful of our patterns of thought, we have the potential to redirect them for more beneficial outcomes.

Instructor: Jeremy Lent is an author whose recently published book, The Patterning Instinct: A Cultural History of Humanity’s Search for Meaning, explores the way humans have made meaning from the cosmos from hunter-gatherer times to the present day. He is founder of the nonprofit Liology Institute, dedicated to fostering an integrated worldview that could enable humanity to thrive sustainably on the earth.
