The Love Fix

May 20, 2022

Sherry and Carla start off with some favorite recipes, and Carla promises Sherry a homemade meal whenever she comes to visit. They then welcome Sarah Peyton, Certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication, Constellation facilitator and neuroscience educator, and author of Your Resonant Self Workbook. Sarah travels the world to help people learn how to use language and self-compassion to heal trauma, and how to use self-guided meditations and exercise to engage the brain’s capacity for healing. Sarah talks about how disconnection from our primary caregivers can set the stage for disorganized attachment, and how stress can change our attachment style. Towards the end of the episode, Sarah shares real-life examples of what gentle self-compassion can look and sound like.
