MischievousWisdom

Becoming aware of why you see what you do gives you the agency to shape how you will see in the future. But doing so requires going to the very place your brain evolved to avoid:
To Not Know.

Experiments

Our unique process of neuroscience and experiential design discovers and shares insights into your perception that are personal, emotional and actionable. But be aware! Sometimes what we learn is often not what we thought (or wanted) to be true. But it’s only through such honesty that you will be able to expand what you see of yourself and the world around you.
