Brainwave: A refreshing take on the mind, body, spirit connection

Recently we had the opportunity to collaborate with the Rubin Museum for their innovative well-being series Brainwave, which brought people from diverse walks of life together to engage with neuroscientists in one-on-one conversations in order to better understand the workings of our minds. It was an honor for the Urban Zen team to participate in this year’s series which focused on the role memory has played in the past, and the debatable role it plays in our contemporary cut-and-paste culture.
From remembering the past to learning in the present and the role each plays in our future, the function of memory was elegantly examined at The Rubin Museum on April 28th, starting with actress Marilu Henner and her “Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory (HSAM).”
Only one of twelve documented HSAM cases, Marilu has the ability to remember each day of her past with perfect recall. As she shares in her new book Total Memory Makeover, each of us has the ability to expand our memories, relive them and take the valuable lessons we might have overlooked or subconsciously ignored. The wisdom of emotional growth allows us to look back at our lives with deeper understanding and compassion that can sometimes transform a painful memory to one that’s empowering.Learn More
