Or listen to an audio version HERE on Anchor.fm

I needed to know more about fractals so Terry agreed to present the talk she gave at a Yale Consciousness Conference. The slides are beautiful, the ideas penetrating. I became a student of a great teacher!

Our guest, Terry Marks-Tarlow is a psychologist who is developing an epistemology of fractals–that is how they work in our real world. She is adjunct professor at Pacifica Graduate Institute, Santa Barbara and California Institute of Integral Studies, San Francisco. She is author of numerous books on clinical intuition, creativity, interpersonal neurobiology, and nonlinear science. She attempts to walk her talk by illustrating all of her books, doing yoga and dancing jazz and ballet. She has co-founded and curated Mirrors of the Mind: The Psychotherapist as artist for the past 10 years as well as written the libretto for two operas that opened in New York City with ballets. www.markstarlow.com

Fractals-The Foundation of Synchronicity: Terry Mark-Tarlow, EP 239

Or listen to an audio version HERE on Anchor.fm

The universe is composed of fractals. From the cells of the body to far away galaxies, fractals move the patterns for patterns. Branching, for example, exists in neurons, lungs, capillaries, tree roots and branches, and snowflakes. Fractals are composed of pattern repetitions across both time and space. They merge our inner world and our outer world, governing intuition. They form the foundations for synchronicities.
