Lecture: “Neuroscience, the power of our mind”. (Bilbao, Spain)
At Espacio Luzarra, an artistic and cultural association, Professor Maribel Portillo, an expert in inner development, gave a lecture on neuroscience.
The lecture was held on the occasion of World Philosophy Day, which is celebrated every year on the third Thursday of November. The speaker discussed that contemporary science, specifically neuroscience, which studies the brain, the nervous system and all its aspects, comes to demonstrate what the philosophers of antiquity, from different cultures throughout the world, taught.
Current scientific advances are discovering that thoughts influence the development of mental structures, and contribute to the state of health of people. In the same way Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, ‘prescribed’ within his Noble Eightfold Path “righteous thoughts”.
A very thought-provoking lecture, for anyone who is interested in self-knowledge and self-mastery – to better understand how our mind works, how it influences our body and how it can change our life!
