Service Description

Why is it that sometimes we easily engage with others and at other times we feel we need to hide or run away? Our internal system of introception lets our brain know via the autonomic nervous system whether we feel safe or not. Stephen Porges' Polyvagal Theory provides us with a completely new understanding of the function of autonomic nervous system and safety. Poly means several; Polyvagal is used to identify the two pathways the vagus nerve takes in our body. The dorsal vagus nervous is for conservation in times of distress and can lead to shutdown or as one client put it "high functioning sleep walking." The ventral vagal helps our body regulate and is known as the social engagement system. A healthy vagus nerve is not only for social engagement, it is also crucial for good physical health and mental well being. In this talk you will learn about - the autonomic nervous system and the polyvagal nerve - safety and trauma - ways to increase healthy social engagement This talk will be designed to meet the needs of your group. It can be presented as a 1.5, 2 or 3 hour presentation. Please contact me for more information.
