The Whole Brain Path to Peace with James Olson | Podcast # 34

New Consciousness Review

Jun 19 2011

James Olson, author of The Whole Brain Path to Peace, was formerly a farmer and church deacon. A seminar on the brain set him on a path of study that led him to some profound insights about how differently the two halves of our brain react to the world around us. He realized that much of the conflict and polarization in our world can be traced to the dominance of the self-protective left-brain, typical among males who control the political/military/industrial scene. The right brain, more dominant in women, is the compassionate side and sees things in terms of their relation to the greater whole. A whole-brain approach that considers both perspectives and takes the best from each is what we need for personal and global peace.
