Sarah Peyton, Author and Neuroscience Educator

Sarah Peyton is the author of “Your Resonant Self: Guided Meditations and Exercises to Engage Your Brain’s Capacity for Healing” published by W.W. Norton.  A neuroscience educator and CNVC Certified Trainer, she offers workshops and classes internationally.

Sarah’s work focuses on resonance and self-compassion that integrates Interpersonal Neurobiology with the healing potential of Nonviolent Communication’s verbal and non-verbal empathy.  She is delighted by the self-compassion that arises from understanding how language and resonance change our brains, heal trauma, and give us new energy, well-being, and choice.

Sarah has served on the faculty of Birthingway Midwifery College, where she offered Communications courses. She studied with Bonnie Badenoch and Allen Schore, and has contributed several articles on IPNB and NVC in the GAINS (Global Association of Interpersonal Neurobiology Studies) Journal.

Sarah is fascinated by how we hear and understand one another, discovering effective ways to connect hearts, and developing self-compassion and clarity.  Her passion is watching people’s self-understanding deepen into warmth.
