In the course, you will build a community together, learn more about and map out your Autonomic Nervous System, create personal plans for self and co-regulation, learn to be playful and curious, create a resilience routine, and more.

Week 1

Building Community

  • Building ventral capacity: Introductions, salutations, and greetings.
  • The practice of noticing and naming your ANS state.
Week 2

Mapping out your Autonomic Nervous System: Part I

  • How do you experience ventral, dorsal, and sympathetic energy?
  • Where do you typically live within the Window of Capacity?
  • The practice of somatically anchoring ventral vagal experiences.
Week 3

Mapping out your Autonomic Nervous System: Part II

  • Which ANS loops are familiar to you?
  • Let's create a map of regulating resources that help you to self-regulate and co-regulate based on the ANS loops that are familiar to you.
Week 4

Mapping out your Autonomic Nervous System: Part III

  • Let's create a map of the triggers that cause you to move around your map, as well as notice how that movement is experienced in your body.
  • The practice of expanded awareness: noticing and savoring "glimmers and shimmers" of ventral vagal moments throughout one's day.

Week 6

The two main blended states

  • Attending to play and playfulness, curiosity, wonder, and awe.
  • Attending to stillness, pendulating between solitude and loneliness.
Week 7

Pendulating with curiosity

  • Between movement and stillness - between expansion and contraction.
  • Active social engagement and introspective social engagement.
Week 8

Shaping the nervous system

  • The idea is to stretch (but not stress) the nervous system - shaping through voice, sound, self-talk, and the voices of supportive others.
  • Shaping through music - Shaping through breath.
  • Shaping through movement - Shaping through the environment.
Week 9


  • Creating a resilience routine for yourself as you move forward.
  • Re-storying your current experiences from your ventral nervous system.
Week 10

Ongoing connection

  • Gratitude, self-compassion, reciprocity, and compassionate communities.
