Ginger joins Unlatched Mind to discuss various topics related to neuroscience, consciousness, decision-making, intuition, beliefs, and personal experiences. We touch upon subjects like the limitations of artificial intelligence, the complexity of the human brain, the role of intuition in decision-making, the importance of open-mindedness, the power of personal narratives, and the significance of embracing a big story in life.   Ginger shares insights from her own experiences, including her participation in vision quests, and emphasizes the value of showing up in life and cultivating a larger story for oneself.
