Nora Bateson: We are all crooked trees

In this episode, I speak with Nora Bateson. Nora is an award-winning filmmaker, writer and educator, as well as President of the International Bateson Institute, based in Sweden. Her work asks the question “How we can improve our perception of the complexity we live within, so we may improve our interaction with the world?” Yet Nora opens us up to understanding that we are so much more than any label that binds us. This was a truly inspiring conversation, one that left me humbled, hopeful, and aware. We discuss:

🥥 How the gaps in between us are both a blessing and a curse, and these gaps are filled with possibilities;

🥥 How sometimes it comes down to the most simple and complex of questions: How can I be a good person?;

🥥 How even if we zoom in and zoom out at the same time, we get a different understanding of what is going on and yet one that will never be complete.
