Sarah’s 2019 Monthly Webinar Series

2019 LIVE WEBINAR TOPICS:

Finding Joy

JANUARY WEBINAR: Tues. January 22 at 7pm PST

Beyond happiness, beyond satisfaction, there is an emotion that brings aliveness and delight in its wake. It is an emotion that surprises us and comes upon us both quickly and slowly as we heal. It is a natural outcome of doing healing work. It is joy. How can we support its growth, recognize it and nourish it so that it sustains us? Join Sarah for an exploration of the neuroscience of joy, and how empathy and resonance point the way toward joy for each of us.

Loyalty, Status, Innocence and Belonging: Understanding Guilt and Healing Shame with Resonance

FEBRUARY WEBINAR: Tues. February 5 at 7pm PST

We cannot both be alive and be innocent. Being alive means compromising the lives of others. This is true at the level of the nourishment we consume, at the level of carbon footprint, at the level of global trade and resource use.

And so how can we step into a right relationship with life and the price it exacts? What do guilt and shame have in common? What is the difference between guilt and shame? What is the connection between internalized oppression and shame? Where does forgiveness fit in?  How can we heal guilt and shame, and practice radical self-acceptance?

What answers can neuroscience bring us, and how can we carry our burdens of responsibility and of life in ways that are conscious and supportive?

Anxiety: 4 Starting Points for Relief

APRIL WEBINAR: Tues. April 23 at 7pm PST

The most common complaint among humans in the twentieth century is anxiety. Most people know the body’s buzzing refusal to relax, the constant sense that something has gone wrong or is about to go wrong, the heat and electricity of worry. We live in a world where stress is a shared experience with every person we meet. Neuroscientists, psychiatrists, medical doctors and pharmacists try to drug it away. What can we do that is different? Join Sarah for an
exploration of the new neuroscience of anxiety, and how empathy and resonance point the way toward very clearly toward relief once we know the origin of our discomfort.

Understanding Unconscious Contracts and Addiction

MAY WEBINAR: Tues. May 28 at 7pm PST

After a year and half spent exploring the relationship between our windows of welcome, windows of tolerance, our unconscious contracts and our choiceless behaviors and compulsions, what has Sarah discovered that can help us think about possible paths to support healing from addiction?

The Neuroscience of Nonviolence with Special Guest Miki Kashtan

JUNE WEBINAR: Tues. June 18 at 7pm PST

The practice of Nonviolence requires a deep rooting in needs. It requires a rooting that is so deep that it overrides our fight/flight/panicked aloneness/freeze responses. What is the neuroscience of this kind of intentionality and choice, and what does it teach us about our capacities as human? Can empathy and resonance take us farther into our commitment to Nonviolence?

"Working with Sarah, my body has changed from being a highly reactive one with panic attacks and anxiety into a calm, peaceful and resilient body. Through Sarah Peyton's work I have learned to listen to my witness self and give kindness to myself in times of challenge. My nervous system has changed as a result of the practices learned from Sarah Peyton. I highly recommend her!

Exploring Blame and its Antidotes: How Acknowledging Grief Moves us Beyond Blame

JULY WEBINAR: Tues. July 16 at 7pm PST

Ever since Sarah discovered McGilchrist’s premise that blame is the only way the left hemisphere has to integrate new information, she has been on a mission of exploration. Can this be true? And if it is true, what are the implications of this understanding for us as humans?

Join Sarah for an evening of investigation of blame and the role of empathy and mourning in providing us with alternatives for the integration of new information.

The Neuroscience of Power: How to Navigate the “Vortex of Submission” in Your Relationships

AUGUST WEBINAR: Tues. August 6 at 7pm PST

Jim and Jori Manske’s The Vortex of Submission is the focus of our exploration this month. Our truest choices arise from our nervous systems having a neuroception of safety, a place from which we can act and decide with ease. When we submit, we deny responsibility. When we live in accordance with others’ unspoken expectations, we live within demand energy.

From demand grow rebellion and resentment, which take us away from mourning and into blame. What is happening in the brain in relationship to submission? How can we bring our empathy skills to bear to heal our brains, clear away our submission contracts, and live with more joy and freedom?

Social Media and Other Stresses of the Modern World

SEPTEMBER OCTOBER WEBINAR (#1 of 2): Tues. Oct. 1 at 7pm PST

In a world where we are rapidly outsourcing our brains to technology, and where our smart phones take up roughly 10% of our intelligence and brain power, how can we claim ground for self-connection? How does technology support us, and how does it stress us? What do we need to know to make the best possible choices for ourselves and for our children?

Join Sarah for a lively and empathetic exploration of our movement through this early part of the 21st century.

"For as long as I can recall, I have struggled with and been ruled by my anxiety, confusion and fear. The information Sarah shares and the way she shares it has changed me - literally. More than ever before I am able to be calm, clear headed and lovingly proactive in response to how I feel - what a relief! I feel liberated and as if I am finally able to be the self I always imagined I was, could be and am. I highly recommend exploring Sarah's work."

Attachment, Emotions, Windows of Welcome and Empathy

(2nd) OCTOBER WEBINAR: Tues. Oct. 22 at 7pm PST

Is anger scary? Do you refuse to be frightened? Do you know people who cry when they are angry, or smile when they are sad? The degree of each emotion that is acceptable to us, in ourselves and others, is our window of welcome for that emotion.

This month’s exploration takes us into the world of Beatrice Beebe (Sarah’s favorite attachment researcher) to discover the ins and outs of how emotions are at play in the way we attach.

Healing Loneliness: Moving out of Avoidant Attachment

NOVEMBER WEBINAR: Tues. Nov. 26 at 7pm PST

The hallmark of having been raised by left hemisphere parents is a deep, lifelong loneliness, a tendency to push others away and a struggle to find life’s meaning. This is a natural aftereffect of the contracts children who are left to “cry it out” make with themselves.

Join Sarah for the latest discoveries concerning avoidant attachment and what they reveal about possible paths we can take toward healing.
