This course is based on a webinar, which took place on June 5th, 2020. Bonnie Badenoch, PhD, LMFT, and Bettina Shultz-Jobe, co-founder of Natural Lifemanship, engaged in a rich, two-hour conversation, exploring the following topics:
- Receptivity, why it matters and the practice of embodying it
- Is self-regulation possible or even desirable?
- Co-regulation, co-dysregulation, and the value of our own presence and deep resonance with others
- Polyvagal Theory and connection as a biological imperative
- The body brain, gut brain, heart brain, head brain, and other neural streams
- And much more!
