This Talk Won't Change You, But How You Remember It Will

Memories are unreliable and fickle, yet drive our emotions and our narrative. We are anchored not by our past, but by how we remember and process our past. Learn to improve the narrative by recognizing the fallibility of memory, how that fallibility serves us, and to release the attachment holding us back.

How to prepare your brain for better memory storage and retrieval

Often, our memories drive a narrative to which we are emotionally attached. When stressed, we lock into the way we feel and our memory becomes supportive of that stress. When we are happy, we often choose to only remember the positive. Memory is malleable and susceptible to outside influence.

In the same way that a witness has been known to take on characteristics of the suspect they are observing during a line-up, or that children who are repeatedly told they are good at math end up believing it and improving their scores, memory works in similar ways.

In this workshop, we will:

  • Look at the ways we access and store memories.
  • Consider ways to improve memory storage.
  • Discuss how to train your brain for better performance.
  • Finally, we will discuss the ways we can retrieve information in order to get that information from our memories into our work.
