It’s a long weekend here in Canada, so as usual I’m posting from a collection of my early works that readers are unlikely to have seen before. Those who have seen it often comment on how well it describes the ways that parenting and other key developmental experiences are key to developing our concepts of how the world works. It’s a simple metaphor that a lot of people have found useful. I hope you do too. Enjoy:
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.
