Welcome to the mind-blowing intersection of science and spirituality with Dr. Tara Swart, PhD! As we explore the potential of the human mind and the role of neuroplasticity in shaping our lives, we discover the process of belief formation and the possibility of harnessing it for a healthier, more fulfilling life. We examine intriguing concepts such as the "opposable mind" and the profound impact of life events and crises on our deeply held beliefs. Tara also delves into unique areas like eating based on your genetic or cultural heritage, the therapeutic benefits of nature and creativity on our physical and mental health, debunks neuroscience myths and enlightens us on a “brain first” lifestyle.
