Resonant language can change your brain
from self-attacking critic to warm attentive friend.
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.
Sarah Peyton, neuroscience educator, author, and trainer of Nonviolent Communication offers a workshop on 1st - 2nd April 2022 in Denmark. She will cover the neurobiology of our thought patterns and show a way towards making our brains a good place to stay.
We are grown by each other. Whether our life experience has been dominated by warm curiosity and acceptance, or we've been met by blame and contempt, our brain is shaped by it. This is what relational neuroscience teaches us, and it doesn't just explain how we developed into our predominant relational patterns, it points to how to heal and change that which doesn't serve us any longer. We can access our innate, human capacity for deep resonance with ourselves and each other, and neuron by neuron, have our our brain becoming a friend, a companion. Our relationships with others will then transform.
Resonant language is developed from Nonviolent Communication, informed by neuroscience, and cross-pollinated with Sarah's unique feel for human emotions and talent for language.
Who is it for?
This workshop introduces Resonant Language and is aimed at you who are interested in getting at peace with yourself. It will offer you a basic understanding of what drives you and other people when in distress, and how resonant accompaniment can be the antidote to loneliness and suffering.
Whether you are a health care provider, a parent, a sibling, a co-worker, a partner or in other ways in relationship with other human beings, this weekend will add to your portfolio of steps in the dance of connection. And it will offer you a taste of peace within.

About the venue
Frugtlageret, The Fruit Storage,is situated at Stevns, 1 hour's drive south of Copenhagen, 4 km from Rødvig Station.
It used to be a professionally driven cherry orchard. After having laid idle for 15 years, we, a community of four women, took it over in 2015 and have gently restored it, applying permaculture principles to design and cultivation. You will find sheep with lambs, horses, chicken, wild nature, and regenerative growing of food crops. The former storage building is now turned into a cozy and warm, 65 square meter workshop space.
You will find multiple options for contemplation by the camp fire in the hut, at the pond, along the creek, or in the walnut grove.
