Reading and writing your “Autobiographical Self”

Have you found your Self yet? Based on his research into the anatomy and functioning of the human brain, neurobiologist Antonio Damasio proposes that we actually have three selves—the protoself (repository of the living organism’s “primordial feelings”), the core self (the fundamental sense of “I” and “mine”), and the autobiographical self—the sense of self that arises through selective storage and retrieval of memories. In this episode, you are going to use a guided meditation to get a glimpse of your ongoing saga of Selfhood.
