11. The Mind

 

Mind explains our caveman-like responses to stress, the responses we learn in childhood to relieve that stress or shame, how we carry those same responses into adulthood, and ways we can deal with our shame.

 

"Actually, we are not far removed from our basic 'Survival At Any Cost' caveman programming. As we become socialized, we are taught to modify our initial reactions to stressful situations.

 

It's when we are 'Running On Empty' that our lower nature is exposed for all to see. When we run out of resilience we quickly return to 'Survival Mode' and act like tired and hungry toddlers".
