The Connectome: The Brain’s Road to Healing Trauma
October 24, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm PDTCost: $20
About the Event
Within the human brain, there are some 86 billion neurons making over 100 trillion connections to each other. Beginning to understand the connectome – the comprehensive map of connections between neurons in the brain, offers amazing insights into the neural circuits that underlie behavior. Understanding also provides valuable insights into the healing path and what is happening in the brain as we recover from trauma. The surprising thing about healing trauma is that we don’t erase anything from the brain – we just change the way the brain connects! Join Sarah Peyton for a 90-minute exploration of the latest science of brains and its implications for making brains good places to live after hard things happen – the connectome!
- This is an online zoom webinar that runs for 90-minutes with an optional 30 min Q&A.

Sarah Peyton, Certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication and neuroscience educator, integrates brain science and the use of resonant language to heal personal and collective trauma with exquisite gentleness.
Sarah is a sought-after expert who brings neuroscience expertise together with depth work, self-compassion, and the transformative potential of language. She works with audiences internationally to create a compassionate understanding of the effects of relational trauma on the brain, and teaches people how words change and heal us.
Sarah teaches and lectures internationally and is the author of four books on relational neuroscience and self-compassion: Your Resonant Self: Guided Meditations and Exercises to Engage Your Brain’s Capacity for Healing, the companion Your Resonant Self Workbook: From Self-sabotage to Self-care, and Affirmations for Turbulent Times: Resonant Words to Soothe Body and Mind, and The Antiracist Heart: A Self-Compassion and Activism Handbook, co-authored alongside Roxy Manning, PhD.
