Hi Edwin, I finished the transcript. I hope its OK?
I quite enjoy it! Marcelle Kors
I enjoy doing this when
I have enough time, so I will definitely do another soon. Like you
say, It's a great way to really integrate the information, I'm
dyslexic, so these videos are great for me to learn what normally can
be laid out in such a dry, academic way.
It's very interesting experiencing how many of the academics
researching in this area are so warm and humane, its a far easier way
to learn then because you respond to the facts through the person who
has truly lived them, this of course is such a large part of what the
whole empathy culture thing is about. By spending more time and care
with the transcription one is, in effect able to get more into the
minds of others, it's how I often developed characters as an actor,
It's a lovely thing to do.
I certainly feel very strengthened in my own empathic growing journey
since 'meeting' so many beautiful pioneering people through these
wonderful videos of yours, and just hearing a constant outpouring of
optimism and positive facts and ideas, it has a very powerful effect
on the mind.
I believe art contains an encoded form of the experience of the
artist. Maynard Soloman said 'All art is a constantly renewable form
of energy'. And because for me my own art processes are primarily
developing my own empathy, my reconnecting with myself and the world,
I wonder if and how that 'renewable' experience is helpful to others
in the same way, perhaps without them even knowing? Magic? Mimesis?
It's all about passing it on, igniting those around you. Exciting!
Good to part of the team, Warm regards to you, Alexis Strauss
