November Event is coming up!How Emotions are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain

Anjalee Pieries from Amitabha Hospice Service Trust

Most of us have learned that Aristotle’s explanation of emotions is fundamentally right. Emotions really exist, we are born with the basic ones hard wired into us. Anger, shame, disgust, desire…. all normal humans experience such emotions. If we have learned anything about the brain, we probably also believe that’s what the limbic system is all about, right?

What if this is all just wrong? Come along to hear about the latest research. Emotions are not things that happen to us, despite it really feeling that way sometimes! This talk is based on psychologist and neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barrett's book: "How Emotions Are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain".

You will never think about emotions the same way again!

We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.

ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!
