Phillip Stanley: Sense Perceptions, Concepts, & Emotions

The next episode of our university podcast, ‘MindfulU at Naropa University,’ is out now! 

Phillip Stanley, PhD: The Relationships Between Sense Perceptions, Concepts, and Emotions

In this episode, Dr. Stanley delves into the real differences between sensory perception and experience, and touches on how our emotions affect what we see, and which qualities we project onto our world. Once we see that our perceptions are different fro our experiences, can we learn how we’re really experiencing our world, versus how our minds tell us our world exists? It’s classes like this that set Naropa’s curriculum apart from other universities – adding a level of contemplation to this type of understanding welcomes deep examination, and offers a clarity rarely experienced.

Come back for new episodes every other Tuesday – the next episode will be out December 5th!
