Bringing Empathy to Sexuality: the Contributions of IPNB and Collaborative Communication
What happens to our self-connection in intimacy when we slow down and add self-understanding, resonance and a connection to the body? Join Sarah Peyton in an exploration of the puzzles of sexuality and integration.
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
In this webinar we look at how attachment and brain-use patterns contribute to intimacy, connection and play in sexuality, and also to addictive patterns and disconnection. What happens to our self-connection in intimacy when we slow down and add self-understanding, resonance and a connection to the body? Join Sarah Peyton in an exploration of the puzzles of sexuality and integration.
This recording goes over:
- Brief review of the brain
- The neurobiology of sexuality
- Attachment patterns and patterns of sexuality
- The ever-present past: trauma and sexuality
- What happens when we add empathy?
- Finding balance and meaning
- Questions and time for integration
Note: This webinar was done in 2011 and some of the understanding of neuroscience has evolved since this time. Please bear this in mind as you listen.
Note from Sarah: In this webinar I mention that the vagus nerve has 3 gears or channels, which is sort of true - but I don't say that now since the HPA axis ( the body's stress response, Fight/Flight) co-opts the ventral channel of the vagus nerve rather than being part of the nerve itself.
