Dr Mark Vernon's talk, A Revolution in Attention
Dr Mark Vernon's talk, A Revolution in AttentionPosted by Mary Attwood on October 7, 2022 at 3:05 pm
Dr Mark Vernon will be here in this discussion forum for anybody who attended his talk last night and would like to continue the discussion or ask Mark questions.
A Revolution in Attention: perceptual awakening in the work of Iain McGilchrist
The work of the psychiatrist and philosopher, Iain McGilchrist, draws on broadly two types of perception. Both required for a right relation with the fullest of the world, which is so often lacking in our times. So what might that wider perception of reality reveal? How might it change experience and stir spiritual awareness? In this talk, Mark Vernon will bring such possibilities into dialogue with insights from some of the great wisdom traditions. Drawing liberally on Iain’s work, he will consider the role of limits as pivots to knowing more, the sense of relatedness and intuiting the whole, and the centrality of letting go to the awareness of eternity.
