Starting today, I will be posting a video each Saturday. Whether they are instructional, informative, or inspirational, these will all fit in some way into the themes I discuss each week in the blog and with my clients.
The first video I’ve selected is a TED Talk featuring researcher and author Brené Brown. In her funny and poignant talk she suggests embracing (rather than hiding) our vulnerabilities. Her research demonstrates that wonderful new connections can be formed if we surrender our egos and collapse into love, empathy, and compassion. If you prefer to have science to back up your intuitive feelings, you’ll love this really entertaining talk.
Scott McPherson is an Edmonton-based writer, public speaker, and mindfulness facilitator who works with individuals, companies and non-profit organizations locally and around the world.
A serious childhood brain injury lead Scott to spend his entire life meditating on the concepts of thought, consciousness, reality and identity. It made others as strange to him as he was to them. When he realized people were confused by their own over-thinking, Scott began teaching others to understand reality. He is currently CBC Radio Active’s Wellness Columnist, as well as a writer, speaker and mindfulness instructor based in Edmonton, AB where he still finds it strange to write about himself in the third person.
