Monthly IPNB Webinars

IPNB and Empathy Webinar. Single or Series

Each monthly IPNB Webinar with Sarah is a 1-1/2 hour exploration of current research into the brain and how it behaves in relationship.

Sarah uses the lenses of Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) and Nonviolent Communication (NVC) to emphasize how we change and heal in relationship with one another. The participants call in on a joint conference call line while viewing a web-based visual presentation, to engage the information through multiple channels. There is usually an additional 1/2 hour wrap-up after the initial session is over so that people can comment on what is significant to them – this provides the learning community with another way to integrate the information. Recordings and visuals are provided to participants and subscribers.

PRICE: $20 per drop in and/or recording of session

TIME: 7-8:30 p.m. Pacific time:

NOVEMBER Webinar: Power and Privilege: The Neurobiology of Status and Group Dynamics

Have you ever wondered why feeling as if we don’t belong is one of the most painful things we experience as humans?

Thanks to the functional MRI, we now know that feeling left out actually stimulates the very same parts of our brain that physical pain does, like when we burn our hand on a hot stove.

Researchers have also discovered some of the neurobiological underpinnings of what creates safety, belonging, and mattering for us. They use the acronym SCARF to capture these key elements that are so important to our left hemispheres:  Status, Certainty, Autonomy, Relatedness, and Fairness.  When we experience these things, we experience reward and pleasure; when these things are absent, we experience threat and pain.

All of this has enormous implications for what happens in our brains when we’re in groups, especially when we and others form, dissolve, and reform relationships and alliances that sometimes do and sometimes don’t include us.

Join Sarah on Tuesday, November 28 to explore the interpersonal neurobiology of mattering, belonging, groups, and power, and discover how we can create groups that foster mutual empathy, connection and understanding. 

***NEW FEATURE***  This webinar will take place using Zoom online video technology, so you can directly view Sarah's slides, and see her during the call.  (If you speak, you will have the option to show or hide your video, and you do not need to have a webcam or computer to participate; phone-only connection is still available.)

Depth Empathy Healing Process Group (Online)

Are you longing for a way to work with Sarah directly, and to simultaneously experience Sarah demonstrating the depth processes outlined in her new book, Your Resonant Self? Are you drawn to being in a healing container with other people while they receive depth work, supporting each other and developing the bonds of closeness and companionship that come from experiencing and witnessing each other’s healing? This is especially relevant for practitioners who would like to observe and learn from Sarah’s deep process work experience.
