Neurology is never written in stone, and we shape the way we use our brain through the activities and patterns that we engage in and practice. We create ourselves through our preferences and our actions, creating the person we are. Many of us do this subconsciously, and as such we are products of what we are exposed to. We should learn to understand, accept, and work with our stress response systems, as we do with people with autism and regulatory disorders. We should understand our own triggers, as well as tools that work for us. We should also understand that our emotions are largely shaped by our reinterpretation of the present in light of past traumas. We will learn about the important foundations of developmental maturity, and how we are affected through life by these issues. You will also learn how small changes in how you communicate can begin to bring about a change in your own consciousness. We will talk about sensory activities to dissipate stress, balance hormones, build resilience, and make better decisions.
