    Heal Your Nervous System to Heal Your Relationships with Sarah Baldwin and Christine Eartheart

    Heal Your Nervous System to Heal Your Relationships with Sarah Baldwin and Christine Eartheart

    If you are into personal growth, you may be wondering what all the buzz is about the nervous system these days.
     
    It's for good reason and is a personal passion of ours and woven deeply into the work we do with couples, especially when it comes to helping partners develop secure attachment with one another.
     
    Today, we are so excited to invite you to join expert Sarah Baldwin, training staff at the Polyvagal Institute, to receive revelatory insights into your own nervous system, and learn how regulating it can bring about profound shifts in your ability to relate to yourself, others, and the world.
     
    This particular podcast episode is a bit more like a mini-training, rather than simply an interview, because Sarah is just so gifted as a trainer and is a beloved shining star in the world of understanding polyvagal theory and the nervous system. I adore how clearly and compassionately she explains things and how she speaks openly of her own harrowing journey of an entire childhood filled with abuse and neglect and the impact it had on her -- and her way out of trauma and into healing.
     
    There are two things I continually hear Sarah say in the work she does:
    - "You make sense."
    - "If my nervous system can do it, so can yours."
     
    So beautiful.
     
    Below are the timestamps to see all of the goodness we cover....
    2:15 - How Sarah's complex childhood trauma inspired her work in somatic healing
     
    4:30 - Why going to talk therapy for complex trauma is like going to the ophthalmologist for a hip injury
     
    6:30 - How to discharge traumatic energy from our bodies
     
    11:15 - A good place to begin your healing journey
     
    13:00 - Dysregulation and learning how to drive the vehicle that is your body
     
    18:25 - How our very own "Special Ops Team" keeps us safe
     
    38:27 - You make sense, and you are not alone
     
    40:30 - Words of wisdom for when we see our partner in a dysregulated state
     
    44:55 - How our childhood creates the blueprint for our adult relationships and how to see your partner differently in challenging times
     
    53:55 - Helpful ideas to regulate and come to the safety of the present moment, and the role of Bob Ross and Mr. Rogers in Sarah’s life
     
    1:02:48 - What having a thriving relationship means to Sarah Sarah has a huge heart, a deeply empathetic and grounded presence, and is an inspiration for countless people longing to find their way out of pain and towards the love, inner freedom, peace, and connection we all long to feel.
     
    😍 Who is Sarah Baldwin?

    Mia Lux is the Founder of La Vette, a new intentional dating platform for self-aware singles.

In fact, we are sooo excited about what Mia has intentionally designed that, if we weren't together, it's exactly what we'd sign up for. 😂
    Why? La Vette merges personal development and dating and, instead of exhausting swiping, they've found such a unique way to make the process of finding love fun, meaningful, and rewarding!

    1: Whole Brain Relationships with Harvard-Trained Neuroscientist, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, and Christine Eartheart

    Join NY Times Bestselling author and Harvard trained neuroanatomist, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor to gain incredible insights and understand what's actually happening in your brain during times of both conflict and connection -- and everything in between.
    It's utterly fascinating and will help explain why we can be relaxed, kind, and connected to our partner one moment -- and then in the midst of a power struggle, criticizing them, or thinking they don't care about us the next.
    She'll also teach you how to shift more readily out of our moments of pain and disconnection by creating a "Whole Brain Relationship."
    In fact, Dr. Jill will introduce you to the "8 characters" inside of us that are involved in every partnership.
    It's no wonder relationships can be challenging -- it's not just about two personalities. It's about 8!
    (That will all make so much more sense when you tune in.)
     
    ❤️ Timestamps ❤️
