Interview with Perry Knoppert of the Octopus Movement “Surviving Brain Surgery: A Sensory Overload”

As an author, one of the things I find interesting is how every person I speak with seems to connect to a different quote from my book. I find it insightful and immensely satisfying how every reader latches on to the unique quotes that resonate with them.

Recently, I had the honor and pleasure of being interviewed by Perry Knoppert of The Octopus Movement. The quote that most stood out for him was, “The difficulty I have is when people make the choice for me.” And in addition to discussing brains, brain surgery, the senses, and non-linear thinking, a recurring theme throughout our conversation revolved around what this means in different settings and relationships.

I invite you to dive in and enjoy. I know I did!
