The Transformative Power of Disgust

Listen to “The Transformative Power of Disgust” on Spreaker.

Disgust? Why do we need to think about disgust you may ask like I did when tonight’s guest Sarah Peyton and I chatted recently… Her response, “Because disgust is a primary emotion that affects how we make many of our decisions and is the basis for our judgments.”

Okay, that’s why… we welcome back Sarah Peyton, the creator of the Your Resonant Self program (, an international speaker, and #1 best-selling author who has a passion for weaving together neuroscience knowledge and experiences of healing to unify our emotional brains and bodies. Sarah makes Interpersonal Neurobiology research available to all, so we too can understand how this new area of study can dynamically change the trajectory of our healing.

In this episode, Sarah shows us why disgust is a vital emotion to understand and come-to-terms-with, plus she shares:
• The latest research on how disgust can transform our views and beliefs,
• How disgust can affect our digestive tract,
• Where self-disgust can come from and how to turn it into positives,
• How mindset, emotions, and past trauma can be part of what’s going on now
and so much more….

More About Sarah Peyton: Sarah creates change using precision and resonant language that easily creates insights and transformation. Besides her Interpersonal Neurobiology research, Sarah also brings to us her long-term study of Nonviolent Communication and 3-D body-centered explorations of families over generations through Family Constellation work.

Sarah Peyton is back to talk about the word “disgust.” They begin by defining the word. Sarah says disgust is important to let us know that we matter; and so, we have to honor our disgust and to ask ourselves, “What is the wisdom that my disgust is bringing me?”

0:09:31.0 They delve on self-disgust versus disgust with indigestible emotion. What follows is a discussion on the connection between disgust and play in childhood and the transformation of disgust into sexuality and the authentic self.
They go into “healthy disgust” and the question “What has been indigestible?”

0:26:09.2 Here, they begin to explore some ways to honor disgust’s reprogramming it in order that we have delight in our existence.

0:33:43.0 Again, Sarah talks about the unconscious contracts that are connected with disgust and moral disgust and a continuing self-disgust for not being able to meet perfection goals.
