“We cannot solve the problems we have created with the same thinking that created them.”–Albert Einstein

I am interested in how we as a society address environmental and natural resource challenges, including how we conceptualize those challenges.   For this reason, I’m increasingly intrigued with emerging research in neuroplasticity, the capacity to change neural pathways in ways that actually alters the brain–including how we perceive situations and emotionally respond.

Can we change our individual and collective relationship to the challenges of the Anthropocene by cognitively remapping how we think about them?  Those who are similarly intrigued may be interested in Rick Hanson’s work on to brain science, relationships, well-being, contemplative practice, and related topics.
