Love Itself Special - Interview with Dr Iain McGilchrist
We discuss the divided brain, and why it has such an important meaning for us today. I wanted to know whether we all have this damage to our right hemisphere, and what it means if the left side of the brain dominated the right. I questioned my response to beautiful music – is this experienced through the right hemisphere? – and we talked about the three things which make the right hemisphere stand out in its contribution to the human experience.
Because this is love itself, we also talked about the things which make a flourishing relationship, what we might call “the soul”, and how we can accept both our dark side and the failures within ourselves in order to become succesfull, balance human beings.
