Join Sarah Peyton for a evening of brain exploration

Would you love to wake up every day into a sense of being welcome in your own brain? What would life be like if instead of self-criticism and second-guessing, you experienced self-encouragement, warmth and a little bit of tenderness, all day, every day?

Are these words so far from your inner world that they seem silly, or even impossible?

Join Sarah Peyton for a day of brain exploration that will awaken your cells and rearrange your understanding of yourself with guided meditations and many interactive exercises to integrate your new knowledge and see yourself differently.


The secret to self-warmth is that we all have the wiring for it. We may have had lives that made other abilities more important. We may have turned away from warmth to save our own lives, or to make our families more sustainable. But the neurons that can hold us are right here, waiting for us to open the door to them and let them know that it’s okay to do what they are supposed to do, generate warmth.


This is a time when carrying an embodied sense of warmth is crucial, whether we are changing the foundations of parenting, working for social and ecological responsibility, or just trying to get through each day. We need to change the old paradigms of independence and distance for something new. We cannot live the way we have always lived.


During this workshop you will:

Awaken your own natural self-warmth

Integrate the left and right hemispheres for more grounded living and action

Experience the power of resonant language to support healing and change

Understand the importance of letting ourselves be loved by humans


You will take away a new knowing of the ways in which you make sense and belong in this world, and more access to your own power for movement and change.
