Sarah Peyton's guided meditations go beyond the usual feel-good meditations of affirmation--they actually change our brain and our feelings about ourselves. Because they are based on the findings of neuroscience and how the brain behaves, we experience the creation of self-warmth toward ourselves, call back our dissociated self and learn to hold our pain with tenderness. This is a superb book. I can't wait to recommend it.--Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, co-author of "Integrating Psychodrama and Systemic Constellation Work"
Peyton bridges the gap between neuroscience and daily practice, offering meditations that change the way our brains function, help us integrate past painful experiences, and see ourselves with a newfound tenderness and compassion. I would recommend this book to anyone seeking to heal pain and find a more enriching life.
Your Resonant Self is a brilliant book that brings together brain research with resonant/empathic communications' technology. With real stories and guided meditations, Sarah Peyton shows how to heal emotional pain and illustrates how that healing alters the brain, creating lasting change. With Sarah's gentle guidance you can follow the exercises in the book to help you with your own personal recovery efforts. From healing shame and self-hate to overcoming phobias and addictions, this book has it all. From my own journey with healing and growth, I know the tools in this book work. I celebrate that Sarah wrote this remarkable book and hope it reaches around the world to create healing for all who suffer.--Melanie Sears, RN, MBA, PhD, author of Humanizing Health Care and Choose Your Words
