About the Event

Without self-compassion, the world can be a painful, lonely, and unforgiving place. When we are unaccompanied, judgments and experiences of falling short of our own expectations – especially when these expectations mirror those in our family systems – can build up and deeply scar our confidence in our sense of self, purpose, and belonging.

Are you tired of being hard on yourself?  Are you longing to create a gentle place of self-love from which to venture out into the world?  Would you like to kickstart this love by being witnessed and held with care in community?

If so, join Sarah Peyton in this 5-day, 25-hour immersive accompaniment.  You can kickstart your self-compassion as Sarah shares her knowledge, offers skills, and invites you to explore deeply with break-out and group discussions.  This is a safe opportunity to:

  • Understand the ins and outs of self-resonance
  • Learn time travel empathy
  • Reveal the needs within your unconscious contracts and release the contracts that are no longer serving you
  • Release recent and older physical tensions through empathic self-connection
  • Apply neuroscience to break through stubborn patterns

To be witnessed and held with compassion in community offers incredible opportunities for self-transformation.  Come and be seen!

Learn to:

  • Experience and practice resonant language
  • Discover the links between your neural circuits and your needs
  • Connect your body sensations and emotions
  • Increase your needs consciousness and ease of connecting with self-empathy

This Course Includes Resonant Support

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.

Here’s what a previous participant shared about having assistant support available during courses:

“Thank you so much for offering the in class 1:1 support with a resonance assistant as part of the course. This opportunity has gone a long way to provide me with a personalized felt sense of the impact of this process when working with a trained and skilled person to a greater depth than I had experienced on my own. Such a gift.” ~ Dorothy



  • 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.
