Your Resonant Self: The Book

Resonant Language: The Hidden Technology for Loving Yourself NOW.

Sarah's new book (with hand-drawn illustrations by Forest Chaffee) synthesizes the latest developments in neuroscience, trauma treatment, and the power of empathy into an effective healing method that literally rewires our brain and restores our capacity for self-love, emotional regulation, and well-being.

I hope this book connects people with the understanding that we can use warm language to support and accompany ourselves and that our brain can grow and heal at any age, increasing our resilience and enjoyment of life.

Free Webinar: Transforming the Critical Inner Voice

If you’ve ever made a point of trying to be kinder, more compassionate and less judgmental of yourself – and then not been able to do it… did you kick yourself even further down the rabbit hole of self-disapproval, did you wonder how to end the unstoppable downward spiral?

Where does that critical inner voice come from, and what purpose can it possibly serve?

This webinar introduces the power of body-connected resonance to help you understand how empathy affects the human brain and how to bring precision and beauty to help transform the inner critic into a compassionate advocate.

8-Week Online Study Course: Introduction to Resonant Language

Have you ever wondered why some people’s presence, support and listening feels so good, while other people’s support doesn’t seem to have much impact?

When we have a sense of being “gotten,” when we are deeply attuned to, we take in the nourishment and attention and care like thirsty, struggling plants finally receiving the water and nutrients we need to grow.

Resonant attention and language changes the way we see ourselves. With our new eyes, we start to transform our experiences of shame, rage, terror and self-doubt into the sense that we are enough, just as we are.

This course uses interpersonal neurobiology to explain how to use the language of the right hemisphere to access our innate, human capacity for deep resonance with ourselves and each other. It can be taken anytime, at your own speed.

    Your Resonant Self: In-Person Learning Opportunities

Your Resonant Self - Immersion Program Week 1

Dates: Nov. 3-10, 2017Location: Alton L. Collins Retreat Center, near Portland, OR

Do you have the sense that your life, your relationships and your work are shadows of what they could be? Do you have a hard time being in joyful contact with your body, perhaps feeling like your body has betrayed you? Perhaps you’ve been practicing self-compassion meditations and books for years, but still struggle to be warm and accepting towards yourself?

Many of us believe we are our to-do lists, and measure our worth by what we are able to do, or our lack of worth by how far we have fallen behind. Would you love to have a taste of who you would be if you were fully supported, both by self and by others?

Based on the book Your Resonant Self, (Norton Publishing, September 2017), this retreat will take you through the foundational understandings, skills and steps needed to nurture a practice of self-warmth.

This will be the first of two retreats designed to accompany the book. This Intro Week focuses on getting to know your default network, and becoming acquainted with all the blocks and openings to self-connection. It will be very experiential, with lots of movement and sweetness.

Based on the book Your Resonant Self, being published by Norton in September 2017, this retreat will take you through the application of the foundational understandings, skills and steps needed to nurture a practice of self-warmth.
