Jaime tells a story from a childhood math lesson, to illustrate how the amygdala (our 'guard dog') can be so good at protecting us - a little TOO good - that it stops the thinking part of our brain (our 'owl' - the pre-frontal cortex) from doing its work!
Another Zen Den mindfulness video!
Jaime introduces a fun game - about listening. How well can you listen to the sounds of the bells? If you listen really hard, it's amazing how long they go on for. It's fun!
If we can get our listening working well, we can experience the world so much more!
