I love neuroscience. To share this passion with others, I travel all over the world to talk and teach about the way that relationships change our brains. I also love language, and the effect that words have on how we think and how we feel about each other. So I spent a decade immersed in the study of Nonviolent Communication, and in what happens when we are precise and warm in the way we talk to ourselves. The combination of brain research, words and personal journey led to my book, Your Resonant Self. When I was a little girl, the people around me used to say that the brain was fully formed by the time a person was three years old. Even then, that was a depressing concept. I used to wish it wasn’t true. I’ve always loved growth and movement. So I was relieved and inspired when I grew up to discover that science has taken us into an understanding that the brain continues to grow and change for our entire lifetimes. It is never too late to heal the painful aftereffects of heartbreak, emotional trauma, abuse, or patterns of self-hate and sabotage. Instead, the latest findings in mindfulness science and brain research have shown the exact opposite: our brains are neuroplastic--they can change and grow with experience--and the critical voice that develops as a result of traumatic experiences can actually be permanently changed by learning to accompanying ourselves warmly, with resonance and empathy. I live in the Pacific Northwest with a family full of friends of the human and animal kinds. I am a Certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication, and an internationally published writer.
