The Best of 2017 – #7 – Mirror-Touch Synesthesia (EP 111)

Mirror-Touch Synesthesia may be a new term presented in this show, but is a concept you will certainly be familiar with by 111 episodes into Coffee with the Sarlos! Karen and Kelly are discussing the gift of literally feeling what another person (or pet) feels. The body of individuals with this gift literally register the experience in their own brains as though it is a personal, physical experience. 

This is a remarkably difficult thing to live with not just because it is difficult to explain to others, but because it is incredibly challenging and rare in the Western part of the world to have someone fully understand and appreciate the necessary boundaries an individual needs to have in order to cope with mirror-touch synesthesia. 

As always, Karen and Kelly hope you find bits and pieces of yourself in this podcast. And wherever you find yourself, please have patience and compassion for which part of life’s journey you’re in!
