How to know what you really want | Luke Burgis | Big Think [Video]

How to know what you really want, with Luke BurgisSubscribe to Big Think on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/c/bigthink Up next The ugly psychology behind scapegoating | Luke Burgis https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLa0zqShCcw There are two kinds of desire, thin and thick. Thick desires are like layers of rock that have been built up throughout the course of our lives. These are desires that can be shaped and cultivated through models like our parents and people that we admire as children. But at some level, they’re related to the core of who we are. They can be related to perennial human truths: beauty, goodness, human dignity. Thin desires are highly mimetic (imitative) and ephemeral desires. They’re the things that can be here today, gone tomorrow. Thin desires are subject to the winds of mimetic change, because they’re not rooted in a layer of ourselves that’s been built up over time. They are like a layer of leaves that’s sitting on top of layers of rock. Those thin desires are blown away with a light gust of wind. A new model comes into our life; the old desires are gone. All of a sudden we want something else. In the stream of daily life, we’re pushed and pulled in a million different directions. And if we don’t extract ourselves and find time for recollection, we won’t be able to listen to our lives, to listen to others, and to understand the way that our relationships and our desires are growing and emerging. We’ll be surprised if five or ten years from now, we’ve pursued desires that have led us to a place that we really may not have wanted to go. Listening is critical to the transformation.

Challenges in the Arctic | Verena Mohaupt | TEDxKIT [Video]

How to hope in dark times | Thomas Coombes | TEDxMagdeburg [Video]

In his emotional Talk Thomas Coombes tells a story of hope. Social change activists are very good at talking about what they are against, but less good at selling the change they want to see to the wider public. Their emotional tools tend to be fear, outrage and disgust, but neuroscience shows us that if we want more empathy in the world – we need people to feel more hope and joy and even humour! Thomas Coombes idea, hope-based communications, involves five simple shifts in the way we think and speak that anyone can apply in order to better promote the world we want. Using it, activists can change the narrative in debates to make their proposals “common sense” and create the passionate public support without which big change cannot happen. To that end, Progressives need to be as effective in using modern communications to trigger hope as populists are at triggering fear. After a decade working in communications for big NGOs, he became a communications consultant because there is so much demand among NGOs to communciate with values instead of issues.

How My Mom and I Humanized Healthcare Through Graphic Medicine | Sam Hester | TEDxYYC [Video]

Very simple pictures and drawings are an effective way for patients and family caregivers to communicate health care needs. Visuals are not only time-savers, they’re tools for creating deeper empathy and connection. Thanks to a growing movement known as Graphic Medicine, visual narratives can help patients to be seen as human beings with stories, not just symptoms. Sam Hester is a Calgary-based graphic recorder and longtime indie comics creator who has collaborated with a wide range of organizations in Canada. Sam creates visual stories by drawing upon deep listening skills, a unique graphic style, a passion for community-building… and a lot of markers. Sam writes and draws The Listener, a comics column, for the made-in-Alberta independent journalism outlet The Sprawl.
