Transform your Life with Tenderness, Courage, and Self Confidence!

  • Ignite your self compassion
  • Invite more joy into your life in new creative ways
  • Break through old patterns of self sabotage
  • Nestle yourself in radical self warmth

Have you been struggling to find self-warmth? Does your critical inner self go crazy on you when you make mistakes? Do you have days that start off feeling fine, then you suddenly fall into a pit of shame? Perhaps you even struggle to connect with the words "self-compassion".

Self-Love may seem like a cliché at times, but what if you could transform this perceived "myth" into a reality? What if you could increase your capacity for self-care and discover more ways to enjoy your life in a sustainable and creative way?

Join Mary, Arnina, and Sarah for a slow-paced, deep, and heartfelt 13-month exploration into the power of RADICAL self-compassion. The gems within this course will help you to reclaim your birthright of a trusting, self-rooted presence in the world.

During this time together with three internationally renowned trainers, you can expect to:

  1. Take away meditations and self-compassion practices to develop and maintain self-warmth
  2. Understand the roots of self-criticism and how to minimize their effects
  3. Heal difficult patterns of self-sabotage
  4. Engage your nervous system in resilience and healing
  5. Learn to see through the inherited stories that block your free spirit - and discover surprising paths of liberation!

These trainers each bring their own extraordinary wisdom to this experience. Mary Mackenzie brings a depth of spiritual practices along with her unique and effective self-empathy practices. Arnina Kashtan brings "The Compass" to enable vulnerable and courageous self-exploration based on a deep understanding of the impact of collective consciousness on our individual experiences. And Sarah Peyton combines NVC and relational neuroscience to bring gentle invitations to making your brain a sweet place to live.

Each monthly session will be led by one of the trainers who will bring their own unique 'magic' to each of the following topics:

The concluding 13th session on January 12th, 2022 will be led by all three trainers!

Discover the joy of RADICAL self-compassion and get ready to curl up in the soft comfort of your own self-warmth!

About Sarah Peyton

Sarah Peyton, international speaker and facilitator, has a passion for weaving together neuroscience knowledge and experiences of healing that unify people with their brains and bodies.

Funny, touching, and filled with personal stories and up-to-date research on our nervous systems and how they interact with each other, her presentations change lives and invite self-acceptance and self-compassion.  

Sarah offers healing experiences of hearing ourselves and others deeply (using the precision and resonant language that come alive in the long-term study of Nonviolent communication) and 3D body-centered explorations of families over generations (through family constellation work.)  Read more...
