Artist, Writer, Mother
Author of He Came in With It, a memoir chronicling her journey with her son with schizophrenia, who is also an artist.
Join Angie Coiro, in conversation with Dr. Anna Lembke for a discussion on finding the delicate balance between pleasure and pain. In a time of unprecedented access to high-reward, high-dopamine stimuli, we’ve all become vulnerable to compulsive overconsumption. Condensing complex neuroscience into easy-to-understand metaphors, Lembke illustrates how finding contentment and connectedness means keeping dopamine in check. Her riveting stories of suffering and redemption give us all hope for managing our consumption and transforming our lives.
