Brains, Personality & Relationships

Current SANDAPT members & first-time visitors FREE

Who gets on well with whom? Do others shape our brains? Is there a neuroscience of teams? In this workshop, we explore how people's brains compare and perhaps influence each other when they work and play closely. Drawing on twelve years of brain data, Dario uses colorful slides and anecdotes about a variety of teams, couples, and families to help understand how we're likely shaping each other. Participants will gain appreciation for individual differences and "type development" occurs in a relational context.We will also briefly explore the influence of age, career, culture, and sex on our development. Simple charts, diagrams, and case studies make this deep topic easily digestible. 

In this interactive session, you will:

  • Get familiar with brain basics
  • Understand how age, career, culture, and sex — as seen through a neuroscience lens — influence expression of type preferences
  • Appreciate how teams and other groupings can express similarities, blind spots, and polarities by brain differences

Jung and Yoga:
Personality-Specific Advice for Body-Mind Practices

1:15pm to 3:15pm • Formal presentation; no refreshments
Current SANDAPT members $15 • Non-members $20
Full-time students with ID $5 (or free if paying for workshop #1)

In 1932, Jung gave four talks on yoga. In the decades after, he spoke and wrote often about yoga and its great potential as a catalyst for the human psyche. Today, in our stressful, wired, and egoic world, we can extrapolate his wise words to a wide range of body-mind practices. At the heart of these practices, we can awaken the Transcendent function, overcome one-sidedness, and grow our psychological and spiritual potential. We will use rich visual imagery and short exercises as prompts for discussing "complex" topics like shadow, ego, and consciousness. Attendance includes a coupon for the "Jung on Yoga" e-book. 

Attendees will:

  • Become aware of Jung’s 4 talks on yoga
  • Understand how Jung used archetypal imagery to convey complex subtle concepts
  • Know type-specific advice to locate or improve one’s body-mind practices
  • Get familiar with a few basic yoga practices related to type

This workshop has been approved for 2 NBCC CE hours
