Webinar 2: A Stone-Aged Brain in the Modern World (Historic Trauma Webinar Series with Jon Young)

November 25, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Untangling the Neurobiology of Historic Trauma Webinar Series

with Jon Young

Session 2: A Stone-Age Brain in the Modern World

Nervous System Integration

This session focuses on the realm of “vertical integration” in tending historic trauma, exploring trauma’s relationship with the nervous system. We will learn how Somatic Safety and Nature Connection activities speak directly to the nervous system, supporting painful experiences to shift and move, and enabling us to inhabit the parts of our neurophysiology that are designed for connection with each other and the world around us.

Experiential Practices & Sharing

Through experiential practices, small group sharing, and discussion you’ll come to an active working understanding of these tools and how they can positively transform the experience of historical trauma.

​About the Series

In this online webinar series, Madelanne Rust-D’Eye, creator of Body-Informed Leadership, and Jon Young, lead founder of the 8 Shields Institute and the Art of Mentoring movement, unpack the phenomenon of Historic Trauma through the lenses of Nature Connection, Neuroscience, Culture, and the Body.

In the 8 Shields Model, the Northwest ​Direction maps the space where patterns move through time across generations. The Northwest Archetype connects us with our inner landscapes, as we turn within and track the often-hidden patterns from the past that inform our lives. This is a natural part of the 8 Shields map that interfaces with the healing arts, including somatic approaches to recognizing and resolving grief and trauma.

Discover core paradigms and practices for resilience and transformation at the individual and cultural levels. Madelanne and Jon share the stories of their individual journeys with historic trauma, and describe how these experiences have informed their work at the intersection of culture, trauma, and regeneration.

Join us for the live sessions, or go through the materials afterwards at your own pace. The live session recordings will also be posted to our course site after each session. Participants receive long-term access to the course materials.
