his self-paced short course is a four-session series of “unlearnings” and assignments asking you to observe and “fast” from current habits in four areas:
How you form ideas about the world (e.g. the news)
How you form ideas about others (e.g. judgements)
How you form ideas about yourself (construction of identity)
