Be we working in mental health, trauma therapy, integrative medicine, or wellness coaching, the ability to identify, evoke, facilitate, and stabilize your client's connection systems (ventral vagal physiology) will profoundly improve their healing outcomes. Client ability to experience, access, and stabilize ventrality IS the container in which healing takes place. This is under-emphasized in clinical pedagogy, to its detriment.
This is a graduate-level lecture series in the applications of Polyvagal Theory, and Hearth Science’s research that extends it, into the context of developmental and clinical work with individual patients and groups in the healing arts. This course is intentionally trans-disciplinary.
In this autumn lecture series, Gabriel will teach a connection phenomenological approach to the clinical applications of Polyvagal Theory and its extension through Hearth Science research (Beyond Polyvagal Theory), based on a thorough grounding in autonomic neuro-anatomy, and the conceptual underpinnings of Polyvagal Theory, e.g., neuroception, interoception, Jacksonian dissolution, pure Autonomic states, spectrum of hybridity, and insights from our research. In the second part of the course we will transition to clinical application, focusing on tracking nervous system states in vivo, archetypal motor gesture, non-verbal communications of state, linguistic expressions of state, and healing trajectories. This lecture series is focused on the deepening and facilitation of connection states.
WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR: Integrative physicians, naturopathic physicians, psychologists, nurses, trauma therapists, addiction therapists, practitioners of mindbody medicine, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, licensed professional clinical counselors, bodyworkers, wellness coaches, life coaches, interested laypeople (non-professionals).

This lecture series is being created Autumn of 2023 in tandem with a seminar that Gabriel is teaching, and the production of his next book: The Autonomic Spectum: Mapping the Neural Landscapes of Wellbeing and Disease. Beginning the week of September 11, 2023, and each succeeding week, you will receive a link to view that week's lecture. Lectures will be filmed live in our Northern California film studio in 4K, and then be produced before being sent to you. You will maintain lifetime access to the full course archive.
In conformity with our post-capitalist ethics, we are offering this series on a sliding scale to enable to the broadest range of access within the healing arts. The series will present our most cutting-edge research and pedaogigical insight.
