218 - Healing Through Neuroscience with Sarah Peyton
We have the privilege of speaking with another amazing guest on the No Labels, No Limits podcast. Sarah Peyton is an author, international speaker, and neuroscience educator dedicated to helping transform our brains into kinder, cozier places to live. She believes in the power of resonance to change the world.
Our conversation weaves around how she helps people see that our brains make sense and that those things we’ve thought of as emotional difficulties or character defects are actually very normal reactions to relational, cultural, and intergenerational trauma. Further on that topic, Sarah says, "When our brains are mean to us, it's not truth, it's trauma."
I ask Sarah to share a bit about how we can erode our own self-confidence. We may often think we are broken, that we have character flaws, when in actuality we make perfect sense, given the challenging experiences of aloneness, isolation, relational trauma, and more that characterize most modern, capitalist colonial cultures.
Sarah says, "One of the things I’m often asked is 'how does learning about neuroscience help us heal?' Once we start learning about neuroscience we find out how emotional trauma creates self-blame and isolation and gets in the way of gentleness with the self." Listen in as we uncover concepts behind healing through neuroscience.
