Boundaries: Finding Your Brain’s Healthy No

May 11, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - July 6, 2022 @ 7:00 pm PDT

Cost: $434 – $542

About the Event

Do you find it difficult to stand up for yourself? Do you struggle to find the strength to say “No”, and make your needs a priority?

Without healthy boundaries, it is so much harder to take care of ourselves. Claiming time and space for exercise, making healthy food, and getting the right amount of sleep can seem like climbing a mountain.

This inability to make space for yourself can leave your health and well-being compromised. Studies show that untreated trauma and stress increase the risk of serious diseases like cancer and heart disease.

A part of that effect comes from the ways that trauma and stress impact our ability to have boundaries and prioritize the self.

Self-care has become not just desirable, but imperative to our wellbeing. At the same time, many of us find it close to impossible to make time for what we need most.

In this course, Sarah Peyton will guide you on an exploration into how to know your limits and express them without having to pay more than you have in energy and shame backlashes.

Over eight impactful sessions, you will:

  • Discover your own patterns around boundaries
  • Learn the common loyalties and desires for integrity that block boundaries
  • Bring self-resonance and self-compassion to your patterns
  • Reveal and release the unconscious contracts that keep them bound
  • Transform hopelessness into choice and freedom
  • Using NVC concepts and neuroscience, Sarah will help you discover the life-changing power of healthy boundaries and finding your brain’s healthy No!


The course will meet via zoom. Video and audio recordings will be made available.


All times listed are Los Angeles (PDT) time.

This course will meet Wednesday, May 11 – July 6 (except June 15)

  • This work is not therapy and is not a substitute for therapy. If you have a sense that you would be destabilized by yourself or others speaking about difficult events, then this course may not be for you. While we hope that the processes and information that we share can be of use in your journey, we do not have the resources to support extreme psychological difficulties.
