Resonance Brain Spa

A Weekend Intensive

Do you worry about burnout, and wonder where to turn for really nourishing rest? Join us this summer for an immersive online retreat that combines all of our foundational resonance teachings into one experiential deep-dive to turn your brain into a kinder place to live. Experience the unique transformation that a full weekend of Resonant Healing can provide.

Do you ever feel like the batteries of your brain have run down and are worn out? Do you wish you had a way to recharge, renourish and replenish yourself, so that you could experience life from a place of fullness?

Imagine a 2-day in-person healing retreat where your entire being gets nourished: fresh juice and smoothies, hot stone massages, relaxing social engagement, beautiful vistas, yoga classes, trauma-healing process work…

Our weekend Brain Spa is a bit like this: two full days of nourishing your brain and spirit back into a sense of wholeness and warmth. An entire weekend of being seen and understood for who you are, as you learn and heal in a community of others who are also hungry for togetherness and a different way of being on this planet.

One of the best ways to find more nourishment is to bring more resonance into your world, so in service of this, Sarah Peyton is offering a 2-day Resonance and Resilience Brain Spa in August of 2024.

In this ten hour immersive program, you will experience the power of resonance to build a warm community to accompany you, idea-by-idea, and skill-by-skill, to support your growth in capacity, insight, self-affection, and self-kindness. This full weekend event moves through the key concepts and resonance skills that are foundational to Sarah’s body of work, Resonant Healing. It’s like a healing bootcamp, except with exquisite gentleness and warmth… which is why we call it a brain spa!

This intensive offers a unique opportunity to experience what happens in our brains when we get to be steeped in resonant healing community, guided by Sarah’s warmth and knowledge. Similar to a retreat, you will feel as if you’ve been dipped into a world of possibility for connection with yourself and others.

This 2-day weekend retreat will take place on August 10-11th, 2024

We will meet online from 9:00 AM – 2:55 PM PDT | 12:00 PM EDT | 5:00 PM BST (convert to your time zone here)

What You’ll Learn:

    • Time Traveling with Resonance
    • Unconscious Contracts
  • The ins-and-outs of resonance and self-resonance
  • How to release recent and older physical tensions through resonant self-connection
  • The interrelationship of the brain’s Circuits of Emotion and Motivation and how alarmed aloneness can be exacerbated and helped by the interactions of the different circuits

  • Links between your neural circuits and your emotional resilience
  • Connection to your body sensations and emotions

Who Is This Course For?

Students, from beginners to advanced, who are interested in building their skills for resonant language and expanding their capacity to be with themselves and others. Something unique happens when immersed in this learning! 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.

What to Expect:

The event goes from 9 AM – 2:55 PM for two days in a row, with an hour break for lunch each day. Imagine a yoga retreat for your brain: a quick explanation of a concept and an exercise, and then time to practice in breakout rooms. This is a highly experiential learning experience with lots of time for practice, skill-building, questions and integration.

Small group work will be done in small groups or dyads via breakout groups on zoom, including the availability of 1:1 Resonant Support if assistants are available.

This Course Includes 1:1 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.
