In this live episode of “Dinner & Depth,” Carol Pearson speaks with Bonnie Bright about insights from Carol’s new book, Persephone Rising: Awakening the Heroine Within
Together, we’ll explore why stories from the ancient Greeks have impacted us so strongly in contemporary life and how the field of neuroscience teaches about what we perceive as reality. Carol will discuss how recognizing patterns in imagery and narrative and correcting our biases of perception enable us to shift our stories and change our individual and collective lives.
