Kim and CoHost Simon will be discussing the phenomenon of Blindsight. The term was coined by psychologist Lawrence Weiskrantz and his colleagues in a paper published in Brain in 1974. Blindsight is a term used to describe a level of consciousness that allows some people with visual impairments, the ability to respond to visuals they can't consciously see. Simon happens to be one of those people.

Join as we revisit Simon's survivor story, and how he came to discover his Blindsight, as well as the possible implications of these now widely accepted occurrences.

This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."

We focus on the four A's of Recovery: Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers, which takes a good bit of Warrior!
