Flocking for safety and connection!

Presenting September's Embodied Dialogue Series guests....
Hi Subscriber,

I had a wonderful visit with Ruth Lanius last week! My friend Elspeth and I drove to London, Ontario to have lunch with Ruth. Not only did we share about our work, we also shared about our life journey into the world of trauma. Our dialogue was so rich and stimulating, that I asked them if they would both come and share in an Embodied Dialogue in September… and they said yes!!! Between the three of us we have about 100 years of experience in our field of trauma. ????? And, we laughed and shared a yummy dessert. ? Stay tuned for more info.
I also had 3 wonderful days in Boulder, Colorado recording the course on my Felt Sense Polyvagal Model™ for The Academy of Therapy Wisdom. Beautiful Blake (ED for PVI) came and did a focusing demo with me for it.

I’m in the cab on my way to the airport. Off to London and then Potsdam, ✈️ to the Polyvagal conference. I hope to see you there or online.


There will be lots to share once I’m back!

Research now shows seemingly unrelated factors like food, sensory input, digestive health, lack of exercise, and diminished parental availability can influence children’s brain development both in function AND form.
This impacts children’s external behavior and ability to deeply connect, and causes them to shift from staying safely in their body to checking out just to cope with their own physiology.
Interoceptive cues of non-safety triggered by these inputs are significant barriers to coregulation and self-regulating, creating more trauma.
Children with multiple diagnosis are also more likely to find addictions.
Just knowing what contributes to the early developmental signs of inflammation and what these truly look like in the body and brain can make everyone an aide for a child and family to find the right resources, and majorly alter outcomes.

FOUNDATIONS IN EMBODIED ANCESTRAL INQUIRY (EAI)

ANCESTRAL RECONNECTION + REPAIR THROUGH EMBODIED PRACTICE
The postures we embody as white people — superiority, domination, appeasement, and numbing -- are protecting our underlying, untouched wounds. Embodied Ancestral Inquiry (EAI) is an approach to learning the somatic skills necessary for transgenerational healing + repair through the body. EAI is a somatic and spiritual framework that practices at the intersection of felt sensing and ancestral reconnection.
