Clare McCord, PhD.

Location: Abanico Theater – Arts & Minds Center

We begin our human renaissance when we understand the miraculous equipment we possess as human beings – a lavish suite of abilities or human technologies, a sort of on board computer. By trusting our own innate wisdom, we can literally re-member our operating Manual, find our help menus, and learn to work more proficiently with our own operating system. During this talk, Dr.  McCord will introduce the basic premise of what she calls the Human Renaissance, its manual and tool-kit. Come and learn about the simple keys to our power that we can use every day.

Dr, Gross, a leading figure in the emerging field of Primal Neuroanthropology (PNA), will provide an understanding through analysis of core sports postures and how the brain is structured and functions to determine certain primordial behaviors.

“How can you diagnose someone as having obsessive-compulsive disorder and yet criticize him for not making an appointment?” says Jack Nicholson to his perplexed therapist, in this quirky comedy-drama about an obsessive-compulsive curmudgeon who insults, then argues with, and finally comes to accept and love the oddly assorted folks who make up his world. The over-the-top Nicholson and co-star Helen Hunt each won Oscar and Golden Globe Awards for Performance in a Leading Role, and the film won a Golden Globe for Best Picture (Comedy). Come and enjoy this acclaimed film, and explore what it can tell us about the human mind.
