What draws us upwards towards what’s best in us? What draws us downward towards what’s worse in us? What draws us into deeper maturity and into a more robust sanity? These lectures will look at our congenital propensities and habits and probe as where do they come from, what they draw us naturally towards, and what we might do beyond letting nature and our instincts simply run their course.
