Practitioner of Resonant Healing Training and Certification Program

Are you wondering how relational neuroscience can support your professional work? Sarah offers a certification path to support healing professionals in integrating the science and practice of resonance into their offerings. Cohort #3 begins in 2023.

Sarah’s year-long certification program in Resonant Healing equips participants with a robust set of skills and practices to facilitate trauma-informed healing conversations.

Upon certification, they can call themselves – dependent on their previous training: Resonant healing coach, Resonant healing facilitator, Resonant healing nurse, Resonant healing dentist, Resonant healing psychotherapist. 

This is a professional certification program that centers the Resonant Healing process work that Sarah Peyton has developed over 10+ years, and is enriched by the participation of past Resonant Healing Practitioners (RHPs) who have gone on to practice this work professionally.

Please note: previous study with resonance is required to enter this training. See here for details.

Dates for the next certification cohort: Module I: Sept 27 – Oct 1st 2023 | Module II: Jan 6-7th 2024 | Module III: May 1st – 5th 2024 | Module IV: Sept 6-8th 2024 | Sign up to watch the Q+A call replay to receive more details on how to apply.

Overview

Participants will learn to guide Resonant Healing sessions, and support effective, deep and sustained healing and brain change for themselves, their clients and their empathy buddies.

This training also includes foundational and advanced resonant healing processes, including Resonant Language, Time Travel empathy, somatic empathy, unconscious contract work, dissolving blame, disclosing what’s under disgust, and more.

The training can serve as a foundation in offering Resonant Healing session work, and will also supplement applicant’s current professions by understanding what kinds of neural growth is possible, how to support that growth, and what timing of healing and neural change they can anticipate for their clients.

Program Benefits

Hear What RHP Program Graduates Say:

“Building the capacity for internal warmth–really step by step allowing, dissolving the barriers slowly–is a life changing experience. My clients see the difference too! One client that hadn’t seen me in a year, she was crying looking at the change. I didn’t realize it was that obvious, but she said she remembered me a year ago as very, very different…. and she was just crying about how beautiful the transformation was! So I was like, oh wow. ~Participant from Cohort #1

FAQs: Answers to Frequently Asked Questions:

What if I don’t meet the prerequisites, can I still get certified?
There are certain prerequisites for attending the program (see the full list here). If you haven’t had a professional practice of working with people for three years or more, you can join modules I-III and come back for module IV and certification at a later time. 
I am not interested in certification; is this training then not for me?
If you meet all prerequisites, including willingness to take part in all workshop hours and activities between modules, we welcome you into the program. And please know that most of your peers will have a professional aim with participating. Are you open to be their semi-professional resonance buddy as you practice?
What is the balance between one’s own path to healing and coherence within, and the learning of skills to supporting others?
Self-healing and preparing to support others go hand in hand. The first part of the course focuses on your personal healing, so that you can meet your clients unbiased and with as little interference of your own material and history as possible.
How much time should I allocate to this training outside of workshop hours?
Count on 20-30 hours a month. Practice group sessions, journaling and self-study is free for you to decide when you will do it.
Will Sarah be present during the workshop hours?
Yes! Sarah is the one who teaches, and she is present and available through all workshop hours. Only the monthly community calls and your practice group meetings are self-led.
How big is the group?
We have a maximum of 60 participants. On top of this, a group of assistants from previous RHP cohorts will support participants and the smooth running of the workshop.
I understand we will be working with early traumas as part of the course content. What if I get flooded with emotions?
We care for you! This is why we’ve arranged a group of assistants to support us. At any time, you can reach out and go to a private breakout room with a Resonant Healing Practitioner who will support you to come back to goodness and engagement again.
What if I miss a session? Some of the sessions are in the middle of the night for me.
If a force majeure situation happens and you have an acute reason to go to the vet with your pet or similar, you will be able to catch up through recordings of the session and practices with peers later. If ahead of time, you know that you won’t be able to be present at certain times, connect with the organizing team and we will discuss what’s possible. Please don’t plan all-day events during our retreat days as you will miss important experiences and bring you too far behind to be able to catch up with your peers.

Sarah’s Story

Sarah Peyton looking up and right
In my early study of nonviolent communication and neuroscience, I was amazed and moved by how much sweetness and self-compassion was possible when I learned to connect to my body sensations, feelings and needs.

This work grew slowly inside of me into a nourishing, sturdy tree of self-warmth, helping me inch my branches toward myself and others with curiosity and kindness. I apprenticed for five years with Susan Skye (a psychologist, long-time NVC trainer, and creator of the groundbreaking New Depths Intensive Program) who pioneered the time-travel empathy process.

During that time, I became obsessed with understanding WHY and HOW this process worked. How could time-traveling back to a previous painful past experience actually heal us in the present? What is going on in the brain when we access feelings and needs, and bring warmth and understanding to our younger selves? And how do unconscious contracts fit into this picture?

As healing practitioners who hold space for others, we can only go as far with our clients as we can go with ourselves. This is why my practitioner program begins with a module that is purely focused on Self Resonance, and expanding our window of welcome and tolerance for ourselves (and therefore other’s) emotional experience. I’m excited to share what I’ve learned with you.

If you have questions about this program, inquiries about pre-requisites or how to prepare to apply for this program, please connect with Sarah’s support team and they’ll answer any questions you have.
