This group discusses the psychological underpinnings of who we are. 

Rooted in current scientific understanding, it blends several perspectives coming from Psychology, Neuroscience, Biology, Evolutionary Science, Anthropology, Sociology, and Philosophy.

If you are you curious to understand yourself and others better; if you have ever wondered what is going on inside that 3 pound universe floating inside your partner's/family member's/friend's head; if you enjoy learning and discussing about the past, present and future of our species; then come on down for an hour and a half of talk and discussion on stimulating topics ranging from:

The nature of the human mind

Personality disorders

Neuroscience of the mind

Biology of emotion

Reality as illusion

Nature of Addiction

Shyness and introversion

Anxiety disorders

Machiavellianism

Narcissism

The Dark Triad - Dark Personalities

Mood disorders

The shadow self

The nature of the self

The subconscious

Self-fulfilling prophecies

How psychotherapies work

Mindfulness and eastern meditation

Biology of breaking up

Biology of adoption

Dreams

Approached from an eclectic perspective informed by anthropology, psychology, biology, sociology and other disciplines, each talk and corresponding discussion will leave you with a condensation of information as well as a few new ways to think about complex phenomena.
