Addiction and Reward: The Nucleus Accumbens and Empathy
Neuroscience research into addiction often yields a constricted and limited view of predestination and inevitability. In this webinar, Sarah Peyton invites people into an expanded understanding of the brain, looking at the brain’s addiction and reward center, the Nucleus Accumbens, and an exploration of the role of resonance in supporting freedom and flow.
This is primarily a learning and neuroscience content webinar, including a small number of actionable insights and healing process work. If you are seeking healing and resonance practice opportunities, please see Sarah’s upcoming courses here
Neuroscience research into addiction often yields a constricted and limited view of predestination and inevitability. In this webinar, we work with an expanded understanding of the brain, addiction and reward, and play with the Jaak Panksepp quote, “Many people think there is only one reward system in the brain, but each of the emotional circuits has its own rewards.” We cover the Nucleus Accumbens in depth, so that we can integrate the latest research into our understanding of the Seeking circuit, but we will also dip into the rewards and joys of Play, Care and Sexuality, and develop an understanding of how resonance supports freedom and flow.
