Co-Creation, Understanding, and the Unification of Psychology, with Gregg Henriques & Tim Adalin
E44| Co-Creation, Understanding, and the Unification of Psychology, with Gregg Henriques & Tim Adalin
It has never been more important to be part of authentic conversations. To make sense of what to care about, together. Voicecraft is extending invitations to participate in meaningful dialogues with artful practitioners of philosophical transformation.
How can we participate in movements of understanding? What is it to open frames and co-create together? What is the relationship between psychology and metaphysics?
And how can we gather together in this time, grounded in a unified sense of what the process of reality is, so that we might make choices that dignify the loving potentiality of our lives, lives to come, and life itself?
These are grand questions, and joining Tim for this dialogue is a man of profound learning and willing participation to share insight regarding some of the most important questions of our time.
