  • What Happens in Vagus…

What is the vagus nerve and how does it connect to our breathing and emotions? Caren Osten Gerszberg demystifies the science around this key messenger of the nervous system. 

  • Your Brain Secretly Works With Other Brains

Neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barett explains how your brain is (unconsciously) constantly being shaped by interactions with other people. 

  • How to Practice Self-Care

It’s not selfish to prioritize your own needs. In fact, consistently showing up for yourself first lays the foundation for our life’s purpose: showing up for others. 

  • Remember How to Trust

If you’re someone who grew up being told that tears are a sign of weakness, you understand how very difficult it is to communicate complex emotions. Dr. Stacee Reicherzer leads a practice to explore the power of vulnerability and identity.
