About the Event

Are you burdened by difficult memories that unexpectedly resurface at the most inconvenient times? Do you feel reactive with anger or grief arising suddenly, interrupting your day? Or perhaps your day starts off well, only to be disrupted by waves of shame, grief, heartbreak, or pain from the past? Do you feel like you’re navigating through life, constantly on edge, as memories snap at you like alligators? 

Developmental trauma, harmful relationships, adverse childhood experiences all contribute to us struggling to move toward the life we want, and can make our life a living hell. When we turn toward our past selves with resonance and compassion, the painful past will melt and change, freeing life energy that has been frozen in place for years, even decades. 

Join Sarah Peyton and Jaya Manske for a foundational 8-weeks exploring our foundational resonance process work: time travel resonance and unconscious contracts. Resonance process work begins to break down the walls of long-standing patterns of behavior and thought and pave the way for newfound self-kindness, self-compassion and self-warmth. No prior experience is necessary

Who is This Course For?

If you’ve been in cognitive behavioral therapy for years, or read countless self-help and trauma-healing books only to feel unchanged and perpetually struggling to turn toward yourself with kindness and warmth, this course is for you!

This course is for students, from beginners to advanced, who are needing to heal past pains and traumas, and looking for a reliable, repeatable technique for doing so. This is a foundational offering that supports you to dive into more advanced learning and practice, removing deeper layers of pain and struggle, after this baseline scaffolding is built.

Come and build and strengthen the pathways to make your brain a kinder place to live and to increase connection and mutuality with your family, friends, co-workers and community. All are welcome.

1:1 Resonant Support is Available

Get assistant support during classes – experience resonant support from experienced practitioners when you need it during class times. Often, this work can have unexpected depth and touch on deeply held subconscious awareness and pain. Getting support when we need it most helps participants to integrate, regulate, and have a felt experience of the transformative power of resonance:


This course is offered with an option for sliding-scale tuition. Please choose the rate that works based on your income:

$400 – Support those with fewer resources to attend (choose this option if you have the desire to support access for others to help rebalance systemic and global inequity).
$350 – Requested standard contribution (choose this option if you have sufficient financial resources and can pay fair value for this learning experience)
$300 – Discounted rate (choose this option if you sometimes struggle with limited financial resources and would benefit from supported access to this learning experience)
$220 – Scholarship rate (choose this option if you struggle with limited resources and have difficulty saving due to less reliable income or pay, or if you live in a country where earning power is less)

recordings included.

Need additional financial assistance? We will know if additional partial scholarships are available for those with circumstances that require it on Sept 5th, 2023. Write to [email protected] on or after Sept 5th 2023 to inquire.


    • Your tuition payment is non-refundable and transferable.
    • Some additional partial scholarships may be available after Sept 5, 2023
    • This course will be recorded for those who want to learn asynchronously for some or all sessions, but recordings will only be available for those enrolled in this online series
    • 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.
