If you are a caregiver (a parent, grandparent, sibling, teacher, aunt, uncle, babysitter, nanny, coach, etc), you have the incredible ability to support the stimulation and development of neural circuits in a child’s life. As caregivers attune to a child’s internal world, the child experiences the connection that supports brain integration. Consequently, the child develops a sense of vitality and well-being.

If you wish to understand yourself more fully as an adult, here is an opportunity for you to gain understanding into your own human experience. Consider your unique childhood as you learn about neuroscience and neuroplasticity. Discover how well-being emerges when we create connections in our lives.

Enjoy the comfort of being home while you join us for two consecutive Tuesday nights of learning and insight!


The Heart and Science of Supporting Children
An evening with Eric Bowers

April 8, 2014
7:30-9:00 PM Mountain Daylight Time
Teleconference with accompanying slides

The everyday choices you make as a caregiver can have a profound effect on a child’s resiliency. With support, shy children become more outgoing, risk-takers become more capable of thoughtfulness, and anxious children become calmer. The manner in which we treat our children, play with them, and listen to them can actually change a child’s genome. Our children’s capacity to manage emotions, build self-esteem, empowerment and compassion, handle stress and conflict, and create healthy relationships is influenced by the quality and consistency of the care they receive.

In this teleseminar you’ll discover:

  • Powerful tools for supporting children to advocate for themselves
  • How to nurture the hearts of children, and why that is important for their brains
  • Why empathy makes children more secure
  • The power of resonance and how it transforms our relationships with children

Eric Bowers is a CNVC Certified Nonviolent Communication Trainer with extensive training in Interpersonal Neurobiology and Attachment Theory. Eric has a passion for supporting people to learn about and heal from past relationships and create thriving relationships. In his workshops, retreats, courses, and speaking engagements, Eric combines Nonviolent Communication, Interpersonal Neurobiology and Attachment Theory to give a comprehensive understanding of the psychology and biology of relationships as well as tools for building healthy relationships. Eric has shared his work in Canada, the United States, and China. He is the author of the upcoming book The Heart and Science of Relationships: Why We Matter to Each Other. Find more about Eric at

Children, Everyday Trauma, and Empathy
An evening with Sarah Peyton

April 15, 2014
7:30-9:00 PM Mountain Daylight Time
Teleconference with accompanying slides

Whether our children are hurt on the playground, fighting with siblings, scared of a teacher, or are being bullied in class, we want to make them feel better. And there are surprising things children experience that create trauma without us even knowing about it! Join this class to find out how to identify everyday trauma and how it affects the two kinds of memory in children’s brains (and in ours, too). Learn why it is helpful to take a moment of time for connection, to offer empathy, help integrate and resolve trauma, and contribute to resiliency and well-being in children. This class may be attended on its own or serve as a supportive continuation/follow up to Eric Bowers’ previous class on the Heart and Science of Supporting Children.

In this teleseminar you’ll discover:

  • What is most supportive for our children when they are physically or emotionally hurt
  • What can be traumatic for our kids without us even knowing about it
  • How trauma is stored in the brain: The two kinds of memory
  • How resonance resolves and prevents trauma
  • Practicing attunement and resonance skills
  • The benefits of a resonant response

Sarah Peyton, CNVC Certified Trainer, takes neuroscience research and makes it usable for our everyday lives. Based in the state of Washington, she travels worldwide to offer workshops that transform the way we think about and talk to ourselves. She teaches, writes, and works with people one-on-one to disarm the unexploded emotional minefields that cause reactivity. She braids together Interpersonal Neurobiology, Nonviolent Communication, and Family Constellations to create experiences of sustainable brain change, so that people can breathe more easily and live better.
