Healing from Addictions, Cravings, and Choiceless Behaviors

September 22 - September 23

A Workshop for Those Who Suffer and for Those Who Love Them

September 22-23, 2018 Nashville, TN

In an ideal world, our emotional needs are met with warmth and understanding from the earliest age. For many of us, this is not the case. Instead we experience loneliness, internal conflicts and overwhelming emotional pain. Addictions and choiceless behaviors often become the brain’s creative strategies for survival.

Sarah Peyton, a certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), will teach us how to disentangle nervous system wiring which keeps us locked in these unhealthy patterns. Join us to experience the way Sarah’s innovative work can support the healing process.

During the workshop, we will explore:

  • The connection between the latest brain research and the “decisions” we make that lead us toward and away from addictions and compulsions;
  • How to counteract old patterns to support healthy decision making;
  • How to leverage our own empathy skills to bring ourselves

Cost: extended early bird tuition of $225 until midnight August 21 then tuition is $275
