Tuesday Talks

How The Infant Brain Provides Insight Into Human Spiritual Experience

Tuesday 2nd January 2021. 7.30pm until 9.00pm. £5 online via ZOOM.

ABOUT

Human beings are born biologically wired for social connection. Newborn infants pay attention to other people’s facial expressions, tone of voice and even the timings and patterns of communicative exchanges. In short, human beings are born already active participants in relationships. Can this innate capacity for connection help in making sense of human spiritual experience? This is the question Dr. Suzanne Zeedyk, research scientist and infant psychologist, will explore in this lecture. She will suggest that our human capacity for compassion, awe, gratitude and empathy – all of which are core to spiritual experience – derive from innate capacities within the human brain and body. Spirituality is a relational, rather than individualistic, phenomenon precisely because humans are physiologically wired for relationality.

Please join us at 7.30PM on Tuesday the 2nd of February via ZOOM. Purchase a ticket below and you will receive an email with access. Save money by purchasing a winter season pass here and get access to our full Winter Season programme.
