The Neurobiology of Attachment

ONLINE workshop with Sarah Peyton, 21-23 May 2023

Do you ever feel bewildered about the partners and friends who are compelling to you? Do you repeatedly end up in relationships that aren’t very good for you?

Attachment is the way that our brains and bodies are wired to understand and predict relationships, which is heavily based on our childhood experience, especially in the first several years of life.

The way we are responded to creates within us this ongoing prediction or expectation of how we become attached to others, and whether that attachment is secure or insecure. 

Do we get to expect that others will see us and know us? Or do we predict that others will be warm with us without knowing us?  Do we expect that others will devour us? What do we expect from a relationship in which we’re getting close to someone else? 

We invite you for three days full of learning, science-based knowledge, exercises, and inspiration in this online workshop with Sarah Peyton

  • Do you ever feel bewildered about the partners and friends who are compelling to you? 
  • Do you repeatedly end up in relationships that aren’t very good for you?
  • Are often overwhelmed when others get very close to you, or do you long for more connection and intimacy but not telling anyone about it?

Healing is possible

The neurobiology of attachment, the way that our earliest connections affect our adult lives, has a lot to tell us about these deep relational patterns, and it is fun and transformational to learn.

Join Sarah Peyton for an exploration of what our brains are doing and how to grow new, resonant fibers that move us toward earned secure attachment – the state where you can tend to your own needs while staying in relationship with others. Where your ‘no, thanks’ comes easily when it is relevant, and where you can ask for what you want, without heartbreak if you receive a ‘no’.

In this workshop, participants will:

– Discover their own attachment patterns

– Experience the power of resonance to make our brains good places to live

– Release contracts that keep us bound to unhealthy relationships

– Develop more self-warmth and self-understanding.

Who is this for?

This workshop is an invitation to personal development for adults who want to understand their relational patterns better, as well as the patterns of those they are close to. When you join this workshop, you will learn the basics of working with attachment trauma and, with a practice buddy, you will be able to keep working with these matters on your own after the training. This work will be a contribution towards earned secure attachment as you keep practicing.

If you are in a mental health crisis, this may not be the right choice for you. The training is not regarded as therapy or crisis support, nor a substitute of it. If you are in doubt of whether this workshop would be a good fit for you, please connect with the organizers.

Are you Polish, needing help with English?

We are considering offering a simultaneous interpretation into Polish which will happen via zoom and will be audible only to those who request it. It will not affect Sarah’s presentations, discussions, nor practice experiences. It won’t cost you extra.

We will make the decision if this will be provided two weeks before the workshop. You will let us know in the enrollment form if this is a determining factor for you, and get your course fee back in case we end up not offering it.

“I found this workshop very inspiring. In a very short time, Sarah managed to teach us fascinating neurobiological facts as well as helping us identify them in our experience. I thoroughly enjoyed Sarah’s light touch and humour while at the same time feeling held in her depth of experience and ability to meet people in their deepest pain.” Sucimanasa, Germany
