    The Joys and Struggles of Cross-Cultural Intimate Partnering  

    American culture is a feast of colors, lifestyles, histories, religions, ideals, and languages. This workshop focuses on couples who invite new "guests" to their family of origin's table through partnering with someone from a different cultural background. Together, we will explore the unsavory conversations that these couples must face including racism, historical, trauma, oppression, privilege, and alienation. In the end, we will leave with the sweet taste of validation, as we are reminded that love is delicious!


    About Dr. Sabrina


    Dr. Sabrina N’Diaye is an integrative psychotherapist and founder of the Heart Nest Center for Peace and Healing in Baltimore. There, she lovingly serves women, couples, other healers, and small groups. Her approach to healing is a blend of wisdom, science, and ancient spiritual practices. She is a student of the late Sufi Master Sidi Muhammad al-Jamal of Jerusalem, and incorporates Sufi healing into her with individuals, families, and communities.

    Sabrina received her PhD in Mind-Body Medicine from Saybrook University, where she studied the use of complementary and alternative interventions for physical, emotional, and spiritual growth. Her dissertation study focused on the use of guided imagery as a healing tool for African-American women with chronic STIs.

    Sabrina has served as a guest lecturer for the Maryland University of Integrative Health, and adjunct faculty at Saybrook University. She is also a proud faculty member of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine, where she teaches the art of self-care to healthcare professionals around the globe.  She is currently serving the Center as a teacher and guide for Jordanian healthcare professionals who are in service to Syrian refugees.

    Dr. Sabrina is a highly-respected member of the treatment community, and frequently lectures on cultural diversity, spirituality, stress management, self-care for healers, addictions, and the “magic” of connection. Her many audiences include police departments, flight attendants, healing artists, peacebuilders, and aspiring writers. She is currently writing her first book, The Laugh of Love, based on her maternal grandmother’s ability to transcend multiple traumas and chronic illness.

    Dr. Sabrina is a devoted wife, mother, daughter, and life-long learner, who remains humbled by the healing power of compassion, love and forgiveness.

    Using Poly Vagal Theory in Couples Counseling

    The autonomic nervous system powerfully defines our clients’ experiences of safety and influences their capacity for connection.  Operating outside of conscious awareness, autonomic circuits assess safety and risk and initiate actions to navigate the challenges of daily living.  In this workshop participants will first learn the organizing principles of polyvagal theory and then explore practices to help couples identify and interrupt their familiar response patterns and strategies to shape their autonomic nervous systems toward safety and connection.  



    Deb Dana

    My passion for neuroscience leads me into collaboration with researchers to better understand the science and psychology of lasting change. This passion informs my clinical work, my teaching, and my writing.  I have a particular interest in Polyvagal Theory and the influence of the autonomic nervous system in shaping the ways we move through the world.  

    We come into the world wired to connect.  With our first breath we embark on a biologically driven quest to feel safe in our bodies, our environments, and in relationship with others. Life experiences often interrupt our path toward safety and connection propelling us instead into patterns of mistrust and dysregulation.  

    Along our path to healing...

    We learn to safely remember our histories and become active authors of our life stories.   

    We investigate the origins of our patterns of protection and connection.  

    We explore creating relationships that bring joy, movement that feels free, and daily living experiences that are filled with abundance.
