If you've got a nervous system and a partner, this course is for you. Healing happens in relationship, and your partnership has the potential to provide a mirror, a foundation of support, a rupture of your neural expectations (that which you think always happens when you do X or Y), and a reliable reminder that you are safe in the world. You can provide this for your partner, too. But when we are busy making one another the enemy, reenacting our past, projecting our wounds, or stuck in a hamster wheel of reactivity and/or swallowed emotions, we miss out on the gift and opportunity that a relationship offers us.
Understanding the wisdom of the nervous system allows us to infuse our relationships with safety, meaning, and connection. This material will teach you how to identify your own autonomic state, identify your partner's state, lean into and amplify your body's natural process of biological connection, downshift out of defense, and come into resonance with each other. It's only from resonance that listening, support, meaning, and healing can occur.
If you and your partner struggle to see each other with the soft eyes of nonjudgment, to connect deeply and meaningfully, to communicate without shutting down or getting annoyed, or to honor and hold space for each other's truth, Polyvagal Partnership can help. If you know deep down that your partnership is capable of creating more beauty, more love, and more change in this world, then you are in the right place. Welcome to Polyvagal Partnership.
