We’re thrilled to invite you to join usMarch 1st, from 6:30-8:30, as we learn from neuroscience and trauma expert Sarah Peyton! We’ve had the pleasure of learning from Sarah for the last few years. Her insights into the neuroscience of trauma and resiliency have become central to the work and culture of OAASIS. Sarah recently wrote a book, “Your Resonant Self,” and she will be sharing some learnings and tools from the book with us. Find out more about the book at YourResonantSelf.com. It is an honor to host a space to bring Sarah’s brilliance, warmth, and compassion to you.
The riddle of self-esteem is complex. People often tell one another, “Be kinder to yourself!” But it can be difficult to shift to self-warmth that seems authentic. We ache for the real thing, even with ourselves. Sometimes it can even seem like our own brains get in the way. Once we start learning about neuroscience, we see how true this is, and we find out how emotional trauma creates self-blame and isolation, and gets in the way of gentleness with the self. We humans are uniquely vulnerable to emotional harm, but we are also uniquely available to hold each other and ourselves with warmth and resonance in ways that re-establish real relationship and engage our brains’ capacity for healing. Join this conversation with Sarah Peyton to learn more.
