Show Notes

What if I were to tell you our conscious thoughts and resultant actions are not a reflection of simple sensory inputs - such as the air temperature as we step outside or the sight of an eagle flying overhead. Instead, it is how we FEEL about those sensory inputs that drives our complex decisions and actions. Your response to an external input may very well differ significantly from mine – not because we have a different sense of smell, touch, sight, sound or taste but because we FEEL differently about those sensory inputs. When it comes to health, wellness & performance, that’s a big deal!

Welcome to the latest episode of the Catalyst 360 Podcast – your trusted resource for engaging, evidence-based health, wellness & performance insights.  Today’s guest is Dr. Mark Solms, one of the boldest thinkers in contemporary neuroscience and author of the fascinating book The Hidden Spring: A Journey to the Source of Consciousness. I think you’ll find today’s discussion will open your eyes about the way in which the brain functions in everyday life and change your understanding of your subjective experiences. And yes – as always, we’ll focus on the practical elements that will help us all to bolster our health, wellness & performance or that of our clients, co-workers and peers.
