    #22 – A Lesson on Non Violent Communication with Yan Patsenko

    #22 – A Lesson on Non Violent Communication with Yan Patsenko

    Have you ever wondered how everyday people caught in conflict can find common ground? This episode of Quest for Wisdom explores that very question with Yan Patsenko, an artist, language teacher, and a practitioner of Non Violence with a powerful message of peace.

    Yan discusses his latest project, People of Ahimsa, a platform designed to help bridge the gap between Russians and Ukrainians. We discussed the power of open dialogue, shared resources, and nonviolent communication (NVC) to foster understanding.

    Inspired by a desire for a more creative and peaceful environment, Yan recently embarked on a new adventure in Mallorca (Majorca), Spain. Living in a shared space with other creative minds, he’s found a supportive community that fuels his artistic and educational endeavors. Yan’s message is one of hope and encouragement, reminding us of that growth often comes from embracing life’s messiness.

    Today we discuss the true meaning of non violence and discuss tactics for living a more peaceful and fulfilling life through non violent communication.

    #20 – Cyborgs, Transhumanism, and Sensory Modification with Neil Harbisson

    Neil Harbisson is the first legally recognised cyborg in the world and has an antennae attached to his skull which perceives light frequencies from infra-red to ultraviolet and converts them to sound vibrations in his head.
    Neil creates music and art exploring identity, human perception, the connection between sight and sound and the use of artistic expression via new sensory inputs and has given a Ted talk about his project.
    Neil is pushing the limits of the brain and providing himself with an extra sense to work with. He can connect to the International Space Station and hear the light frequencies that are in space as well as have frequencies sent directly into his brain.
    He is also developing a project to use a heat source orbiting his skull once per day to alter his perception of time.
    Neil is a curious and pioneering individual who is redefining the limits of human capability. To find more information about Neil check the links in the description.
