In our most recent episode on the HumanCurrent podcast, we aired our interview with the brilliant Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, a biologist, English author, and researcher in the field of parapsychology. He has been named one of the world’s most innovative scientists and “a pioneer who is paving the way for the future of the sciences” by Deepak Chopra.
Angie and I were thrilled when we were given the opportunity to speak with Dr. Brizendine on the HumanCurrent. We had previously read “The Female Brain” as a part of our office book club, and after having some rich and interesting discussions about it, our team felt deeply inspired by her research and desired to learn more. We collaborated together to craft some of our curious questions for Dr. Brizendine. We wanted to know more about how modern-day life affects the female brain because we are an office of mostly females, who recognize the struggle to find balance in work, home, and personal life.
So, one of the questions we decided to ask Dr. Brizendine in our interview with her was, how does she think modern-day life has influenced the female brain?
Noetic science is described as “a multidisciplinary field that brings objective scientific tools and techniques together with subjective inner knowing to study the full range of human experiences”. So much of the work at IONS is research-based, but they also incorporate a broad range of human capability that go beyond science, like imagination and intuition, into their mission. IONS holds space for understanding that the relationship between the physical and the nonphysical is far more complex than we might have imagined.
