Beau Lotto on Perception, Spirituality and Neuroscience - E160

all that we are with amisha ghadiali (formally known as the future is beautiful)

How do we understand and change our reality? In this episode Amisha talks to Beau Lotto, a neuroscientist and world-renowned expert in perception. Beau’s research explores the ways in which we experience the world through our own versions of reality. By illuminating principles of perception he has helped individuals and companies transform their approach to creativity and innovation. Beau is the founder of the world’s first neuro-design studio, Lab of Misfits, which takes a disruptive approach to research, partnering with brands and research institutes to blend science, art and performance to explore pivotal principles in current culture. He is a sought after public speaker and author of ‘Deviate: The Science of Seeing Differently’. Amisha and Beau talk about the remarkable power of our minds. Beau takes us into the deeper layers of his research sharing vivid examples of how our past experiences shape our perceptions, define our behaviour patterns and become meaningful experiences. He explains how our brains encode the histories of meaning and generate future behaviour patterns and perceptions. Beau reveals that we have the power to expand our identities and experience ourselves as diverse beings when we change our perceptions. They talk about the how we are the source of our lived patterns and that shifting these is possible by taking agency of the context that these were created in. We learn that bringing wonder and awe into our lives increases the possibility of change. The possibility itself lies within becoming self-aware and self-honest, and aligning our actions and words with our values, intentions and insight, which changes the context of our egos and our past patterns. This process expands our identities offering us to live an authentic, diverse and fearless life. Links from this episode and more at www.allthatweare.org
