How We Are Wired: Neurobiology & Being Human

How We’re Wired:
Neurobiology and Being Human
Do you ever wish you could make more sense of how you
respond to others, to life, and to your own experiences?
“How We're Wired” 
will stimulate your imagination to unleash more fulfilling
possibilities in your self­support + within all of your relationships.
Understanding is the first step towards what's possible. Useful, 
simplified summaries of  significant science that illuminate “how
we're wired”, along with experiential exercises, help you gain
embodied awareness and give you more choices around:

• the up/on and relax/down charge of our autonomic nervous system.
• what happens when we are in a dysregulated state of
overwhelm or shut down
• tools for nervous system regulation
• how social engagement influences nervous system
 regulation and well­being
• the crucial messages of primary emotions  
• how relationship patterns from early childhood
impact adult relationships and self­support
• the purpose of the inner critic and how to work with it
• how to be a kind, safe haven for yourself and others, even when you
“The theory you use determines what you're able to see.”
