  • CSL at AUMC 4243 Manuela Avenue Palo Alto, CA, 94306 United States

In this exploration of The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM), we will examine the topic of "addiction" and its relationship to society's market economics. Addiction is a huge issue in healthcare, social welfare and crime. We will exploring the work of Gabor Maté, a renowned addiction expert, who calls for a compassionate approach toward addiction, whether in ourselves or in others. Dr. Maté believes that the source of addictions is not to be found in genes but in the early childhood environment.
