The Overthinker’s Series Part 3: An Introduction to Quantum Thought (and a tool for using it!) - 6pm. With Ontologist & Philosopher Elizabeth A Wilson. Classical cognitive science says that thoughts operate on a string of cause and effect. If I think A then the thought B will happen and that makes me think C - and then I’m stuck in a cycle that doesn’t feel good and drains my energy. But that old way of thinking isn’t quite true! It’s more accurate to say that thoughts exist as fields of potential, and that the cause and effect sequence that traps us in cyclical rumination only happens when we make our minds up about something. This is radically empowering for overthinkers! In this class you will learn a thought technique for interrupting negative thought patterns AND explore some wonderful science about the true potential in your thinking. $10 free for members - for more information see link www.tinyurl.com/longevityonline  Longevity Wellness Clinic, 941-923-9355, https://longevitywellnessclinic.com/
