Keynote: Living on Purpose - Dr. Cornelia Cho invites you to live your life on purpose. What does that mean? From birth, we are bombarded by programming messages from every conceivable direction, telling us how to be in the world, what to think, how to walk, talk, breathe, love, etc., —coming from family, cultural groups, heritage, class groups, advertising, media, religion, school, peers, etc. Learn how we can “un-bury” our true selves from this mountain of messages. Neuroplasticity—the capacity of the brain to change, recover and remodel and Epigenetics—the property of genes to be switched on or off depending on environmental factors, now show we have far more power to change than we previously thought, proving we are not ‘doomed.’ Together we’ll explore brain science and use peer listening, connection, integration, and emotional release to help us re-integrate our brains and free ourselves from the limiting messages from our past, our heritage and societal oppression.
