Science of Somatic Self-Compassion Online Workshops

Week 1  April 3 Sensory Modulation: Soothing through the senses ()

Week 2  April 17 The Polyvagal Theory: The physiology of protective and trauma responses ()

Week 4  May 1 Neurochemicals: Stress chemicals and happiness chemicals ()

What we’ll do

Gatherings will be online in Zoom at 3pm US Central Time for one and a half hours. Each Gathering will be a combination of:

guided contemplative Somatic Self-Compassion practice and reflection,

exploration of the topic through group discussion and weaving of informative material,

reflection exercise to experientially explore the material.

Participants will be given access to a site on the learning management system, PowerSchool Learning, where they’ll find supplemental material to use for their own practice and in their work with clients. Attendance in person is not required as the Gatherings will be video recorded and posted to PowerSchool Learning.
