About the Event

Do you get a little overwhelmed sometimes? Would you enjoy some acknowledgment that your world is filled with stress, concerns, and hurry? Do you worry about burnout, and wonder where to turn for really nourishing support? Would you love to be grounded in your own resilience and feel that you can draw on effortless support?

One of the best ways to find more nourishment is to bring more resonance into your world, so in service of this, Sarah Peyton is offering a 5-day Resonance and Resilience Brain Spa in September of 2023.

In this 25-hour immersive program, Sarah will build a warm community to accompany you, idea-by-idea, and skill-by-skill to support your growth in capacity, insight, self-affection, and self-kindness. This 5-day event moves through the key concepts and resonance skills that are foundational to Sarah’s body of work, Resonant Healing. It’s like a healing bootcamp, except with exquisite gentleness and warmth… which is why we call it a brain spa!
