The Science of Social Safety       

How many of our choices, perceptions and reactions does human biology run outside our conscious awareness? Many neuroscientists claim – for better or worse – as much as 98% of them. In this juicy, live, mixed-media, hour-long online presentation (one-on-one & in small groups), I’ll be inviting you to take a compassionate look at which parts of our biology run us unconsciously and self-protectively and which parts don’t. Reframing complex biology into simple, everyday language, you will come away equipped with a number of unique tools and personal insights. This new learning will allow for mindfully choosing between expansive, safe connection or the limiting effects of self-protection.

    In a recent TED Talk, a NeuroPsychologist said that our human brains are predisposed to negative thinking, and that includes placing “Safety” at a paramount position. We can combate this biological desire to default to safety, by deliberate holding a success in mind for 60 seconds, and then think about a worried thought in tandem for 20 seconds. Neurons that fire together, wire together. Good things happen, and we can be the change required.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment, Andrew. We can indeed positively affect the way our brain’s self-protective bias operates, and we are developing increasing numbers of evidenced-based interventions to accomplish that every day. One essential key to almost ALL of them however, is we have to actually be consciously aware that the negative bias is operating when it is.

  2. Your “Free Solo” warm-up is exciting and profound. I like to think of myself as the person who will make you and tend to your bleeding fingers — certainly a powerful image. I like it.
