#32 Are You Conscious?

15 February, 2019Podcasts, News

Are You Conscious? What  is  consciousness  and  what  is  spirituality  and  how  do  we  explain  these  concepts  so  that  they  make  sense  to  us?  How  can  coming  to  our  own  understanding  of  these  concepts  help  us  overcome  periods  of  adversity  in  our  lives ?

Is  consciousness  the  result  of  chemical  interactions  in  our  brains  or  is  it  the  what  religious  people  refer  to  as  a  soul ? Are  my  choices  in  life  programmed  by  my  genes? Are  machines  capable  of  consciousness?

Persuing  knowledge  around  these  concepts  can  better  prepare  us  to  build  resilience  and  help  us  to  access  the  inner  resources  required  to  push  through  adversity.

Just  as  our  understanding  of  the  universe  has  changed  over  millennia, so  the  debates  around  what  consciousness  is,  have  changed, as  scientists  and  philosophers  gain  more information.

This  podcast  explores  some  of  the above questions.

I hope you enjoy this podcast as much as I enjoyed the discussion.

Stories of Recovery

  • The encouragement, love and support from the team at Crossroads allowed me to eventually see that I was worth something - that my life could be turned around and that I could accomplish the things that had long been a forgotten dream.

  • On the last day of my stint at Crossroads I could only express gratitude towards all who works there. A wise councillor once commented on my question when one is ready for rehab by explaining that when one is ready for rehab, rehab is ready for you.

  • I was lost and my soul was broken until I ended up at Crossroads and was introduced to the Twelve Steps. With the help of their excellent staff and amazing support I have recently been clean for 18 months, I could not have done it without them!
