A Sense of the Sacred with Dr Iain McGilchrist
Sunday 24th April 2022
3.00pm – 4.30pm (UK Time) via Zoom
In this seminar, Dr Iain McGilchrist draws on his new work, The Matter with Things, and addresses some of the oldest and hardest questions humanity faces – ones that have a practical urgency for all of us today. Specifically, what has happened to our sense of the sacred and divine? Does it matter any longer? Is it true that it has been driven out of our world by science and reason? How could an understanding of the structure and function of the human brain even begin to make sense of what has happened – and is still happening? And should we be concerned?
