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.
Following a serious childhood brain injury Scott McPherson unwittingly spent his entire life meditating on the concepts of thought, consciousness, reality and the self. This made him as strange to others as they were to him. Seeing the self-harm people created with their own overthinking, Scott dedicated part of his life to helping others live with greater awareness. He is currently a writer, speaker and mindfulness instructor based in Edmonton, AB, where he finds it strange to write about himself in the third person.
