Workshop with Iain McGilchrist - The Master and His Emissary and The Divided Brain

“It was a great privilege to be able to spend time over four days listening and talking to Iain McGilchrist whose breadth of knowledge of science, history, literature, art, poetry and music is so impressive. It is rare to attend a course where the latest in scientific research, in this case into the functioning of the left and right hemispheres of the brain, is integrated so effortlessly with the words of William Wordsworth and the art of Claude Lorrain and much more. The course provided in depth information about the work of left and right brain hemispheres, whilst also allowing us time and space to reflect deeply on our views of the world and the implications of left hemisphere dominance for our humanity, health, happiness and well being.”

“What was particularly clever was how you achieved the synthesis of the attendants; we appeared from multiple directions bringing multiple disciplines and experience yet there was a sense of belonging and sharing. 
The updated course page catches the rhythm of the seminar beautifully and it walks the reader through the days capturing the essence of both the content and the environment. 
It was fun, stimulating, inclusive and that was just the company of the other ‘learners’; most of all I salute both of you and of course the magnificent Dr for bringing us together and providing so much food for thought!
Thank you.”

“A splendid 4-day programme: Iain McGilchrist’s talks are deceptively demanding intellectually but these are counterbalanced by sessions which cleverly allow these new ideas and concepts to be assimilated more easily. When you couple this with the 4* star location, this makes for a truly memorable weekend.”

“The opportunity to listen to Iain McGilchrist’s life’s research and his own personal story was utterly useful and totally compelling. That, combined with the chance to exercise my creative side in a relaxed atmosphere, was a wonderful experience that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone interested in achieving some balance in their hectic modern lives.”

“Iain McGilchrist is immensely insightful, compelling and brilliantly provocative. It was a pleasure and privilege to spend time learning from him and with the group. A warm, welcoming and flexible environment.”

“This course was intelligent, challenging, moving and therapeutic in equal measures – a veritable feast for the senses. The conversations over lunch and dinner were as illuminating as Iain’s views. It was interesting to see how all participants took something different from the conversation according to how it helped their own experience”
William O’Connor, Foundation Professor and Head of Teaching and Research in Physiology at the University of Limerick.

“Iain’s book resonated profoundly with me and reminded me that I was missing something(s) in my life. The course has enabled me to explore these thoughts more fully and to identify some ways forward.”
