Sarah Peyton, Certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication, constellation facilitator and neuroscience educator, integrates brain science and the use of resonant language to heal trauma and nourish self-warmth with exquisite gentleness. She teaches and lectures internationally, and is the author of three books: Your Resonant Self: Guided Meditations and Exercises to Engage Your Brain’s Capacity for Healing, the companion Your Resonant Self Workbook: From Self-sabotage to Self-care, and Affirmations for Turbulent Times: Resonant Words to Soothe Body and Mind (scheduled for release in Winter, 2021).

Sarah’s work with resonance invites people from all walks of life to make relational neuroscience and relational connection their own. She brings together depth work and self-compassion in ways that integrate the understanding that we make sense. The transformative power of resonance offers great healing, and flows through many channels. This summit offers participants the chance to find that many different doors to healing are unlocked by accompaniment and resonant support.
