Join my and my guest, Dr. Lori Desautels, for a conversation about neuroanatomy, helping people think about the brain state, and how to achieve connections over compliance.
This is such a powerful episode!
In it we talk about many of the issues that we’re facing… living through a pandemic, and we aim to provide hope, specific strategies, and practical ideas of how we might transition to and reimagine what education will look like in the future.
I learned so much, I have pages of notes and in fact, within an hour of recording this episode, I was already sharing what I’ve learned. Here’s a quick example…

- chronic unpredictability
- emotional or physical restraint
