Do you wonder why humanity is so miserable and destructive? Do you wonder what we can do to remedy the situation? Then this module is for you.
The Evolved Nest is a breakthrough concept that integrates findings across fields that bear on child development, child raising and adult behavior. Evolved Nest provision in early life promotes optimal health and wellbeing, cooperation, and receptive and sociomoral intelligences. Societal moves away from providing the Evolved Nest to young children have contributed to the ill being and dysregulation we see in one another and society. To turn away from human self and planetary destruction, we must restore evolved nest provision to young children. But we all need to be nested to foster and maintain our cooperative nature.
Join Dr. Darcia Narvaez, founder and host of Evolved Nest, renown social scientist and author for 8 sessions about the evolved nest. You will learn about each of nine identified evolved nest components in a semi-structured setting that allows for discussion.
The cost of the module is $99 which includes Personal-use recordings of the 8 sessions.
