The 2023 Neuroscience and Resonance Monthly Series

Each month, Sarah presents a 90-minute deep-dive into the latest neuroscience research on various healing topics, and how we might apply it to resonant healing. Each webinar supports us to see ourselves, and our brains, with compassion and understanding.

January 2023 – December 2023 Topics:

Body Image and Welcoming Our Physical Selves

Do you live in your mind? Have you lost touch with affection for your body? Have people told you that the way you see yourself and the way you are seen by others are two very different things? Are you sometimes bewildered by the toll that time and difficult experiences have taken on your physical being? Do you wonder how to find yourself again? The journey from disconnection to reconnection with our bodies can be difficult, but it is supported and made smoother by knowledge of the brain and how we perceive ourselves.

Join Sarah for this 90-minute webinar to explore the relational neuroscience of body image and the ways resonance can support us in seeing ourselves with warmth.

Hate and Love: Why We Feel the Way We Do

Did anyone ever tell you, “We don’t hate in this family!” Whoever that was, they did not know about brains. When love is betrayed, brains show the betrayal on fMRI’s, and people call that feeling hate. When we learn about brains and how they work, we feel more self-compassion and more self-warmth.

Join Sarah Peyton for 90 minutes to explore everything that relational neuroscience can tell us about the ins and outs of love and hate.

Narcissism and its Aftermath: Healing from Others’ Self-Centeredness

The hardest thing about having a parent or a spouse who sees no one else but themselves (the condition commonly called narcissism) is that it fractures us. The experience of only being seen as a means to an end, or as a function, breaks us into millions of tiny pieces and we lose our wholeness. How do we recover? Or at least gain solid ground? When we have an understanding of what our brains need, and the ways that narcissism results in emotional starvation, we are able to bring more self-compassion and self-understanding.

Join Sarah Peyton for a 90 minute exploration of the latest relational neuroscience on narcissism and healing.

Resonance for our Bodies: Chronic Illness, Chronic Pain

Do you struggle with energy and physical discomfort? Do you worry about getting through the days? Are you frustrated and lonely, and do you need reliable and competent support? Relational neuroscience has some insight into the mysteries of chronic illness and chronic pain, but the most important thing is resonance – resonance for the exhausted self, resonance for the worn out cells, and resonance for our beleaguered immune systems.

Join Sarah Peyton for a 90 minute journey into the latest research into chronic fatigue and other conditions, and how to talk with our cells.

Parenting with Resonance: Holding On & Letting Go

Do you ever struggle to feel connected with your child? Do you long for your family to experience warmth and the desire to contribute to one another? Do you watch other families and wonder why your own family doesn’t look like them? Do you sometimes feel confused about when to hold on, and when to let go?

“Working with Sarah, my body has changed from being a highly reactive one with panic attacks and anxiety into a calm, peaceful and resilient body. Through Sarah Peyton’s work I have learned to listen to my witness self and give kindness to myself in times of challenge. My nervous system has changed as a result of the practices learned from Sarah Peyton. I highly recommend her!”

Trauma Bonds: Identification and Healing

Toward Beloved Community: Understanding Us and Them

Would you love to live in a world where we all worked together to support each other? Where politicians and policy-makers had a deep thoughtfulness about the systemic whole? And do you almost give yourself whiplash with your bewilderment about what powerholders actually do, instead of this?

If so, you might enjoy spending 90 minutes with Sarah Peyton to explore the ins and outs of the relational neuroscience of Us vs. Them – the ways that our brains create different groups of belonging, and treat these groups differently.

“For as long as I can recall, I have struggled with and been ruled by my anxiety, confusion and fear. The information Sarah shares, and the way she shares it has changed me – literally. More than ever before I am able to be calm, clear headed and lovingly proactive in response to how I feel – what a relief! I feel liberated and as if I am finally able to be the self I always imagined I was, could be and am. I highly recommend exploring Sarah’s work.”
