 The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World

 

 

Editor's Note from Diane Renz: I had the pleasure of recently meeting Ian McGilchrist at the annual Interpersonal Neurobiology  conference at UCLA. He is a powerful thinker with the deep heart of a poet. His most recent book, "The Master and His Emissary" explores how the lack of neural integration has lead to a society dominated by Left brain functioning which leaves out the wholeness of who we are and keeps us in perpetual separation where we are more likely to cause harm. It was quite funny when I sat down to talk with him, after I had just been immersing myself in a Mindfulness Retreat with Jon Kabat Zinn, I  found myself at UCLA, at the center of intellectual understanding and scientific debate, feeling fully unintegrated; my right hemisphere of intuition, feeling, poetry, and full sense of interconnectedness had the full takeover, without the helping hand of my left hemispheres ability to find the linear, linguistic, logic in order to engage in an intelligent conversation with this amazing author. I was deeply humbled! Healing is all about finding the communication between all parts of who we are so each can inform the other.
