The Agenda

The human mind is an incredible thing. It allows us to think, speak, perceive and imagine everything from the ordinary to the extraordinary. But what is the difference between the mind and the brain? And can we really train our minds to be better, healthier people?

On this episode of the Agenda, we'll be talking to some of the world's leading experts to find out how our minds work, what exactly it is they do, and how.

Paul McKenna, Britain's best-selling non-fiction author, hypnotist and behavioural therapist, explains how we can unlock the true power of the mind to improve the way we live.

Professor Steven Pinker, Johnstone Family Professor of Psychology at Harvard University considers the biological and evolutionary changes which separate the human mind from other animals. And Dr Lynda Shaw reveals how dreams could be the real key to a happy, healthy and orderly mind.
