In Original Mind, neuroscience and learning pioneer Dee Joy Coulter takes us on an odyssey back to our “beginner’s mind,” and into our many undeveloped potentials. Through fascinating research, insights, stories, and engaging practices largely overlooked by other “brain science” books, she challenges us to question the conventional definitions and limitations of our minds, and then to move beyond them into a state of unlimited presence.

What would it feel like to experience the world again like a child-deeply engaged with our senses and filled with wonder and creativity?
