Juicy Relational Skills for Emergence Part 2: Engaging and Emerging: How the Circuits Interact
July 14 @ 5:00 pm - July 16 @ 3:00 pm PDTCost: $650
About the Event
What knowledge about the brain gives us leverage to really begin to see each other? What do we need to know about the ways that the circuits become entangled by trauma and unconscious contracts, blocking our emergence? Learn to tell the difference between instrumental and relational connections, and begin to walk the path toward more richness, meaning and intimacy. Practice resonant language in relationship, and discover your own sweetness.
This event is part 2 of a 3-part series exploring resonance and relationships, how we can use the foundational concepts of Sarah’s book, Your Resonant Self, to transform relationships with those we are closest to.
This event is available as a 2-for-1 enrollment (purchase one registration and you’ll be able to invite another person for free!)
You are welcome to register for any of the three individual events in the 3-part series, however, registering for the full 3-Part Immersion might be a good fit if you’d like to access the content bonuses and bonus group skill-building/practice sessions.

Cost and How to Register
- 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.
- Some partial scholarships may be available after July 2, please write to Sarah to inquire.
