Being Human 2012: The Science of Human Experience
March 24, 2012 - 9:00am - 5:30pm
Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco
Everyday, fresh insights from all fields of science shed new light on the processes of human experience -- the how of feeling, thinking, and believing -- and invite us to redefine who we are as human beings.
Join us on March 24, 2012, at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. Together we will explore new territories of understanding around human processes such as how we perceive and ‘make sense’ of the world, how we make decisions and how we relate to ourselves and to others.
Pioneers on the frontier of human understanding will guide our exploration, including best-selling author and neuroscientist David Eagleman, psychologist and leader in the study of emotions Paul Ekman, artist and neuroscientist Beau Lotto, scientist and mindfulness meditation teacher Jon Kabat-Zinn, and international prize-winning poet Jane Hirshfield, among others.
We are for anyone who is fascinated by how and why we experience our lives the way we do. Our aim is to bring transparency to human nature, with a healthy dose of openness to discovery and wonder. Chances are, you will come away with a sense of awe and an exciting new orientation towards your own experience of life and of the world around you.
