On Talk It Out Radio, our intention is to provide everyone with tools and practices that work to increase compassion and kindness in the world. We know that your relationship with yourself may be the most important relationship in which to practice these things. It turns out that each of us has ongoing measurable brain activity that happens between other tasks, that is primarily concerned with relating to ourselves. This is called “the default network.” It’s how we talk to, and listen to, and honor ourselves – or not. For some people, this “default network” can be cruel, and can be a source of ongoing pain that we barely notice day to day.
Sarah Peyton, international teacher and healer in the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology, and Certified Nonviolent Communication trainer, has collected her tried and true healing practices for our relationship with ourselves in a new book: Your Resonant Self: Guided Meditations and Exercises to Engage Your Brain’s Capacity for Healing.
Your Resonant Self synthesizes the latest developments in neuroscience, trauma treatment, and the power of empathy into an effective healing method that literally rewires our brain and restores our capacity for self-love, emotional regulation, and well-being.
In Sarah’s words, “You can learn to use compassionate language to transform your inner critic into your most compassionate advocate.”
In this Sunday’s show, Sarah helps you practice, with her warm and kind guidance, the age-old art of creating love and kindness for yourself as the foundation to creating the relationships we want to see in the world. Callers are welcome.
