Conscious Talks ๑ Psychology & Spirituality ๑ Talk 1. The Brain


In July is the kick-off of our second Conscious Talks series, Psychology & Spirituality. Psychology & Spirituality are still seen as two worlds apart, but in fact they are much more intertwined then one would think.

The guest speaker for this series is psychologist Kim Helmus, who did her Master of Science in Clinical and Developmental Psychology in Groningen. Together with Elizabeth Plokker, co-owner of The Conscious Club, they will explain why and how these two worlds are connected.

We've created 6 talks with 6 different subjects. With this series we'll dive into the psychological mechanics of our brain, emotions, thoughts, and personality! We'll explore tools for change and how to build bridges!

With each subject we'll find deeper understanding in what it is, how it works and how we can influence it! Expect dynamic talks with fun exercises to broaden your world. For each talk we've designed an in-depth workshop, so you find new ways to implement it!
