Skills for people to learn to be with themselves in the healthiest way possible.

Have you ever noticed how cruel and self-sabotaging your critical inner voice can be? Have you been looking outside of yourself for friends and loved ones to reassure you of your worthiness and lovability? The latest developments in neuroscience unveil the amazing extent to which humans are wired for connection, belonging and resonance with other humans. This wiring for connection is so strong, our nervous systems have the capacity to become our own compassionate self-witnesses, even when we have not had access as children to stable loving presence and warmth.

The field of neurobiology and the science of mindfulness reveal that the human brain is capable of being engaged in the experience of upset (fear, anxiety, depression) while simultaneously observing and holding ourselves with kindness, as a loving parent or partner would. This ability to be both experiencing and holding the experience is the key to maintaining inner calm in the face of life's challenges. If we learn to honour that each and every inner voice, no matter how distressing, has the desire to help us, we open to the possibility that each part of us has value. This help creates a gentle, accepting and warm resonance with ourselves that can remain stable and present, even when parts of us feel upset.

In simple language and easy-to-follow exercises, Your Resonant Self synthesises the latest discoveries in brain science, trauma treatment and the power of empathy into an effective healing method that literally rewires our brain and restores our capacity for self-love and well-being. Each chapter weaves the core concepts of neurobiology with guided meditations and beautiful illustrations, painting an inspiring picture of the human brain's inherent yearning towards healing and wholeness.

Review:

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
