In this workshop, Dr. Greenspun outlines the various ruptures that are both embedded in and contributing to the unfolding climate and environmental crisis. These ruptures include the internal defense mechanism of disavowal that leads us to split off our full awareness of climate disruption, the fractures between groups of people including various forms of polarization, marginalization and othering, and the split between humans and the more-than-human world characteristic of the modern Western world.
Featured Event Series
What can relational neuroscience reveal to us about violence and the people who perpetrate violence? What are the personal, societal and systemic contributors to violence? Join Sarah to discover what the research shows about behavior change, and, most importantly, what resonance can do to support change.
While the scientific community has come to unprecedented international scientific agreement on the causes of climate change and what needs to be done to stop it, there remains significant contention about the issue. At least part of the reason for this is the different decision-making frameworks of those involved in the decision-making and a seeming failure for widely respected figures to coalesce the disparate voices around a vision of the future that we can work toward while also valuing the past contributions of fossil fuel and providing a safety net for those who have worked so hard in that effort.
Similarly to the way that our brain incorporates a violin as a part of the body the more it is played, our brain can be said to consider our addictions and addictive strategies to be auxiliary sources of necessary neurotransmitters. And similarly to the way that our brain makes contracts with us to keep us safe, our brains can be said to make contracts with us on behalf of our addictions.
Do you ever have clients who find it difficult to live with the demands their brain makes on them? Is the price for saying “no,” higher than they can endure? What are the brain patterns with OCD? What parts of the brain are involved in OCD? What does research say is helpful? Join Sarah Peyton to explore constellation possibilities for clients with OCD.
Family Systems Constellation has demonstrated to us the deep peace and sense of balance that comes from finding our right place in the family system. The anxieties and imbalance that are prolific with modernity lead us to the natural place of remembering that we have a right place in relationship to our Mother Earth as well.
One of the concepts from Jaak Panksepp’s work that was given short shrift in the first Your Resonant Self book was the SEXUALITY circuit, and its contribution to full maturity and authenticity. No matter the level of our sexual interest or activity, this circuit is important for well-being. The contracts that diminish this circuit diminish our life energy and our sense of potential contribution.
What does the latest research tell us about the relationship between addictions and the brain? What is the role of unconscious contracts in addiction? What is changed forever in the addicted brain, and what can be healed and leveraged to give constellation clients good lives and a sense of solid ground? Join Sarah Peyton to explore constellation possibilities for clients struggling with addiction.
