When does learning begin?
When do humans begin to learn how to adapt to life?
Does learning begin only after birth??
Actually some of the most important learning, happens before we are born.
Our health and well-being throughout our lives is crucially affected by the nine month we
spend in the womb,
by the few hours we are born and by the first few hours of our post-natal lives.
My talk is not constricted to Jing, the eastern term for the ancestral knowledge and experience
passed from our parents, allopathic medicine calls this Genetics.
I will also explore the idea that Babies, themselves, mediated by their mothers, start learning
about the postnatal life, the world he or she will be born to, in the womb.
In the last few decades scientists have come to recognize this field of education, They call it
“fetal origins” or “intrauterine programming”.
For our Chinese scholars, this is old news; 2000 years ago, they called it “Tai-Jiao”, or fetal
education (Tai = fetus, Jiao = to teach or instruct).
Tai-jiao suggests that the way a woman lives while she is pregnant:
her emotional state, her past,
the stresses she experiences, her coping resources,
her diet, her habits, her physical activities, even the music she listens to or the things she
everything about her environment influences the baby.
In my lecture I’ll explore ideas and concepts from near and far, Sun Si Miao, Guan Zi, Dr’
Michel Odent and Prof’ Marek Glazerman will accompany us on our journey to better
understanding life in-uterus and its effect on us all post-Nataly.
