It’s Not Fair! Why Brains Love Fairness and Why It’s Important
Have you ever noticed that your whole body relaxes when things seem fair?
Join Sarah for a 90-min webinar exploring the neuroscience of fairness, how it shows up in humans, and how to use this knowledge to imagine a fair world that works for all.
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
Have you ever noticed that your whole body relaxes when things seem fair? And that tension arises with the thought that things are not fair? When two chimps receive carrots, they’re both fine, but give chimp #2 a grape, and chimp #1 throws his carrots across the room!
How much are we like primates in our love of fairness? How does privilege influence what we perceive as fair? How innate is the longing for everything to feel balanced?
In this 90-minute class with Sarah Peyton, we will look at the research into fairness, how it shows up in humans, and how to use this knowledge to imagine improving the unfair systems we live in.
