As we have learned, people use non-essential food (specifically salt, fat and sugar) to compensate for brain chemistry and to support them in having energy for relationship. The ease of access of this kind of food in our world can lead to disordered eating. In this teleseminar, we we will discover the latest research into food and neurobiology, look at some of the paths people take to healing disordered eating, as well as exploring leverage points for self-understanding, self-compassion and Nonviolent Communication empathy.
Sarah Peyton, CNVC Certified Trainer, offers trainings focused on learning and using resonant language to transform the brain. She brings together depth work and self-compassion that integrate Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) with the healing potential of Nonviolent Communication's verbal and non-verbal empathy. She is delighted by the self-compassion that arises from understanding how language and resonance change our brains, heal trauma and give us new energy, well-being and choice. She teaches and lectures internationally, teaches communication at the college level, and she has been published in North America and Europe on NVC and IPNB. Her work focuses on how we hear and understand one another, effective ways to connect hearts, and developing self-compassion and clarity. Her passion is watching people's self-understanding deepen into warmth. Her book Your Resonant Self: Guided Meditations and Exercises to Restore Your Brain's Capacity for Healing, published by W.W. Norton & Co. in 2017, is the first book from a major publisher to significantly feature Nonviolent Communication.
