There are few relationships between plants and humans that are more mysterious and compelling than the cannabis connection – and for very good reason! Human beings have an entire body system devoted to to the body’s own endogenous cannabinoids.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) regulates and balances all of the other physical systems, and we are only now beginning to understand the complexity of how this system works in humans.
Cannabis is now legal in a most states in America, and her active components, including Cannabidiol (CBD), tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and over 100 others, are the subject of increasing research and study as more humans encounter the medicinal and recreational potential of this plant. Simultaneously, many struggle with choicelessness and shame in our engagement with cannabis, or have concerns about long-term usage or over-reliance.
Join Sarah Peyton, neuroscience and constellations synthesist, to discover the neuroscience of cannabis and explore using family constellations to explore our relationship to this magical and healing plant. We will explore how cannabis interacts with our joy/play circuitry, the mystery of why cannabis sometimes meets our longing for spiritual connection and oneness, and how and why cannabinoids can help balance us for sleep, stress and more.
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.
