Somewhere in our brains we cherish a map of the relationships in our lives. It is our mother’s lap, our best friend holding our hand, our lover’s embrace — all these bonds embed us in a safe sanctuary in life and remind us that we are not alone.
This episode we explore these various bonds and ask how they facilitate a sense of peace in our lives?
We’ll also chat with Alan Beck, director of the Center for Human-Animal Bond at Purdue University, about the mutual benefit of animal and human relationships.
Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Kathryn Morris on the bonds of networked Fungi that open our minds to the pervasiveness of bonds in order for a species’ survival.
But first watch our video where we take our questions to the streets of NYC!
