Left versus Right hemisphere

Bouncing Back”– Rewriting your Brain for Maximum Resilience: Linda Graham
.

“Left hemisphere: Verbal processing: Language, Speech, Symbols
.
Right Hemisphere: nonverbal processing: visual images, body movements, emotions, experiences in relationship
.
.
Left hemisphere: linear processing (one bit of data after another in sequence)
.
Right hemisphere: holistic processing (seeing the big picture)
.
.
Left hemisphere: logical, rational processing: abstract reasoning and analysis, cause and effect.
.
Right hemisphere: emotional processing, including processing of facial expressions in fusiform gurus,
.
.
Left hemisphere: Sense of social and emotional self”
.
.
.
My two cents: Mindfulness practice, using focus on the breath, trains the mind to let attention fade from the left hemisphere (“The Ego”, thoughts, emotions, desires, needs, judgments, fears, worry, doubt, dissociation), allowing us to cross over to the other expansive side.
