Meet Dr. Seren Dalkiran

"As the cultural historian Thomas Berry reflects, we live in times in which our old story through which we made sense of our world is dying and our new story has not been born yet. Now we are in transition in between the stories, what is the emerging story of our time and what is the role of the younger generation in defining that story?"​

– Seren Dalkiran

In this search, the development of both hemispheres of the human brain and the dance between intuition and intellect is important to grow whole as human beings.
