Have you wondered how family constellations might help us repair attachment wounds and blocks in the flow of resource from past generations to future generations, and from parent to child? Join Sarah for an overview of the neuroscience of the prefrontal cortex and amygdala, followed by an illustrative constellation using these elements to see how the blocked flow of love can be healed and made flowing through resonant healing and attention.

The world is becoming increasingly uncertain. How can we understand all manner of brain behavior with patience and compassion in a world that is rife with violence, despair, oppression and uncertainty? With resonance. Join Sarah to explore the neuroscience behind conspiracy theories and political extremism.
In a world filled with upset, our nerves can become frayed, our tempers can be short, and our ability to cope can go missing. In times like these, we need to know everything we can about how to nourish and support our own well-being. Join Sarah Peyton for a workshop that integrates the latest research in neuroscience with techniques in resonant language that help us self-soothe and generate self-warmth with exquisite gentleness.
Do you ever have a sense of not mattering? Or are your clients sometimes unsure if they exist? Is there an unending search for home or tribe? Are they willing to accept the gift of this life? And what do we do when they can’t accept this gift? What do we do when we ourselves are ambivalent about the gift of life, especially now, in today’s world? Join Sarah for an exploration of neuroscience in constellation work.
Every facilitator has a different approach to working with constellations. What is your natural starting point? Are you warm? Cold? Neutral? Is it important for constellation facilitators to have warmth for their clients? What are the implications for neutrality? These answers are different for every facilitator, yet a basic understanding of warmth for humans can help us determine our own balance points. What will an understanding of warmth do for your facilitation?
How do we explain the astounding epidemic of loneliness and anxiety in the western world? Learning what is happening in our bodies and our brains as we deal with loneliness and activation of the GRIEF/PANIC circuit helps us take care of ourselves with warmth and compassion. Join Sarah for an exploration of one of the greatest ills of our time.
What makes it so hard to create large-scale change? A part of the answer is humans’ natural resistance to change. Another part of the answer is the way that power changes humans. Luckily for humans, our Nonviolent Communication (NVC) practice, combined with leverage from the world of relational neuroscience, can bring us energy, calm, acceptance and even joy in our efforts to make the world a better place. Join Sarah for 3 days (9 hours) of exploration of the interplay of shame and privilege and experiences of healing and self-connection.
Part of a year-long masterclass, this stand-alone 5-day online constellations retreat with Sarah is an opportunity to explore many aspects of power as they appear in constellation work and in life, the relational neuroscience of power, how we surrender or claim power, how we misuse it, and how we come to peace with it.
