Conscious Fertility

Sep 27, 2022

What if you could tap into the power of your entire brain to experience true peace and the present moment? 

This is the exact phenomenon that Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor has been studying since she experienced a stroke in 1996 that changed her whole perception of reality. 

In this episode, we explore the idea that our brains have 4 characters that serve different essential functions to make up who we are and how we experience the world. We discuss each character, how to tap into different parts of our minds, and how we can use this in the fertility journey and parenting.

Dr. Taylor’s experience changed everything she knows about the brain and our human consciousness. It’s an honor to get to bring her on the podcast to share her experience, discuss her incredible knowledge of the brain, and understand better how we can use this in the conscious fertility journey.
