A fitting follow up to my recent post of the short documentary The Divided Brain by Ian McGilchrist,

Reblogged with many thanks to spencerjjoseph at Integrative Life (East West Integrative Health) who was fortunate enough to have the chance to interview Ian.

One of the foundation teachings of the world’s great wisdom traditions is that harmony arises with balance. Recent research in many different fields of art and science is allowing us to revisit this principle of balance from new perspectives.

Ian McGilchrist is a psychiatrist who studied English at Oxford prior to his career in medicine. In his book ‘The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World’ {McGilchrist, Yale University Press, Reprint 2012 }, he notes that the left and right brain hemispheres seem to “coexist together on a daily basis, but have fundamentally different sets of values, and therefore priorities, which means that over the long term they are likely to come into conflict. Although each is crucially important, and delivers valuable aspects of the human condition, and though each needs the other for different purposes, they seem destined to pull apart.”
