Neurosculpting® Our Social World With Joy Menet
October 21, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MDT$35.00
We are social animals. We thrive on human contact and have an evolutionary need to be around others, forming social groups outside of our own families. But when our place in a valued social group faces threats – real or imagined – the effects on us can be devastating.
Studies have shown that threats to our social status – our sense of authority, our belief that we are being treated fairly, our feelings of being included – rank equal to threats to our physical safety in terms of anxiety and stress. And that’s because our limbic system, the seat of our fight-‐or-‐flight reactions, draws no distinction between the two.
Join us in this introductory class where you’ll learn the many ways our sense of belonging and social status can feel threatened.
We will go on two guided Neurosculpting® meditations in which you’ll rewrite your relation to the social world.

How I Came to Climb! A Mountaineer’s Bio
In August 2007, Joy found her love for mountaineering when climbing her first fourteener ever: Longs Peak! In this same month, she moved to Ecuador where she began climbing mountains to train for the Huairasinchi – a 3-day adventure race through the Andes Mountains. During this time, she worked as a local guide on the weekends, taught an Adventure elective class to teenagers, and participated almost weekly in a mountaineering club, of which she later served as a volunteer president. Upon returning to the U.S. in 2013, she became a Certified Mountaineering, Rock Climbing and Wilderness Instructor through NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) and also began guiding seasonally for Wildland Trekking Company. Her gratitude for the lessons she has learned from the mountains runs deep, as is her is passion for sharing these lessons with her fellow students.
