With Professor Anthony Kessel & Elizabeth Marmur
When we understand that we create and live in a thought-generated experience of reality, it can feel a bit like having a superpower – especially when it leads to impactful change both on a personal and professional level.
Elizabeth and Anthony will explore how their understanding of the Three Principles has affected them personally and has had practical implications for their professional lives – Elizabeth as a communication skills trainer, and Anthony as a physician and global health director (https://medium.com/@AKessel). They will also discuss their academic article, co-authored by Michael Neill and Rif Malik, that was recently published in the Journal of Public Mental Health. The article outlines the Three Principles and considers the potential of this understanding to transform lives.
