Befriending Your Reptilian Brain

Our reptilian brain, along with our central nervous system, have done a fabulous job of keeping our species alive through the ages. We humans are great at sensing danger and responding instantly with fight, flight or freeze behaviors. But what happens when these ancient survival mechanisms meet the modern world. We will look at that and also ways we can better collaborate with these systems resulting in feeling more grounded, social, at ease, and creative. It is my hope that my presentation will add a bit to your spiritual health and the health of this UU community.
