About the Event

We are in a time of extreme challenge because of the daily demands of our culture, the particular struggles of each day’s events, and the lingering effects of our own personal histories. Two statements by Stephen Porges form the foundation for understanding what has happened to us and how to heal these wounds. The first is that “we are a traumatized species” and the second is that “safety IS the treatment.” In our time together, we will explore the practice of giving and receiving psychological, emotional safety as a foundation for our own healing and for becoming a supportive presence in the world. Session highlights:

A practice to foster embodiment and nonjudgmental presence with others

The science of how traumas both large and small become embedded and continue to influence the quality of our daily lives

Exploring Porges’s polyvagal theory concerning our autonomic nervous system to establish a foundation for providing the safety that is necessary for healing

An interpersonal process that fosters the integration of traumatic experiences

A practice of radical inclusiveness for every part of ourselves and others, to support you in becoming a therapeutic presence in the world.
