Juicy Relational Skills to Heal Shame Part 1: Understanding Shame and Resonance


What is the root cause of shame? What actions cause us to react to others with shame and how long does it take for our bodies to calm? What is the role of alarmed aloneness in shame? How does everyday stress play a part? What is the impact of our trauma histories on shame and on our relationships? Do we get to relax and laugh in our relationships again? Learn the role implicit memory plays in shame, and how we can use resonance skills to transform shame into relaxation and warmth.

This event is part 1 of a 3-part series exploring resonance and relationships, how we can use the foundational concepts of Sarah’s books, Your Resonant Self and its accompanying workbook, 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.



The course will meet via online (zoom video conference). Recordings will be made available.

What to Expect:

Each day we alternate between short lectures on neuroscience concepts, followed by experiential exercises to explore and practice the concepts.

The experiential components of this series will feature skill-building exercises to help you connect to others and yourself, resonant language, unconscious contracts to help you untangle what blocks connection with others, and time travel resonance.

During our first weekend together, we will cover the following topics via lectures interspersed with experiential exercises:

  • The circuits of emotion and motivation
  • PANIC/GRIEF and alarmed aloneness: their relationship to shame
  • Attunement and resonant language
  • Reassurance vs Resonance
  • An introduction to trauma and retraumatization in shame
  • A simple time travel for friends and couples
  • Self-blame 101: Transforming self-blame into mourning
  • Unconscious Contracts and how they lead to shame

Heal and learn together with family, friends or partners, or join for your own personal exploration. This event is being offered as a two-for-one enrollment, and you are welcome to join with a partner, friend, family member, or anyone else you’d like to share this learning experience with.
