The Power of Perception

Chris Eberhardt302

Have you ever wondered why two people from the same community thinking act differently? Understanding perceptions is more important than ever I society is being exposed to increasingly more intentional messaging designed to shape our beliefs, biases, attitudes and feelings. Without an awareness of how this messaging programs our brains to influence our actions and behaviors, we become mere cogs in a materialistic and divisive culture. Recognizing the sources that shape our personal beliefs and garter behaviors is the first step to building a real community. Once we understand our views and beliefs, we become more understanding, empathetic and effective and building relationships with others as we work to solve pressing problems together. This presentation is designed to bring awareness to how perceptions developed over time and influence everyday actions and attitudes.
