Leila Rosen, Aesthetic Realism associate, writes about this upcoming Public Seminar:
Women—and men too—want to feel we’re intelligent. We want to use our minds well—about work, love, education, money, everything. So why do we often feel we’re not intelligent in the choices we make—that, once again, we’ve messed it all up? What’s the real intelligence we’re hoping to have, and what gets in the way?
I’m proud to be one of the speakers at this seminar, along with consultant Devorah Tarrow, and associate Miriam Weiss. We’ll tell what we’ve learned on this tremendously important subject from Aesthetic Realism. Its founder, philosopher Eli Siegel, has defined intelligence as “the ability of a self to become at one with the new.” We’ll describe the way of seeing in everyone that interferes with our intelligence—and how something in us wrongly thinks this interfering, stifling, unintelligent thing is ever so smart!
You’ll find out about all this through instances from life today, literature, and from our own lives. And we’ll describe how women learn, in Aesthetic Realism consultations, to be ever-increasingly intelligent—about the world, men, and ourselves!
