If there is no other, there is no I.
If there is no I, there is no one to perceive. This is close to the truth, but we do not know why. There must be some primal force, but we cannot discover any proof. I believe in acts, but I cannot see it? I can feel it, but it has no form.

First, there must be a true human; then there can be true knowledge. But what is a true human? The true human of old did not mind being poor. He took no pride in his achievements. He made no plans. Thus, he could commit an error and did not regret it. He could succeed without being proud. Thus, he could climb mountains without fear, enter water without getting wet, and pass through fire unscathed. This is the knowledge that leads to Tao.

The true human of old slept without dreaming and woke without anxiety. His food was plain, and his breath was deep. For the breath of the true human rose up from his heels while the breath of common men rise from their throats?

Porges' Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) Group Offerings

We are offering two SSP groups this summer. One is an online SSP group for therapists and the other is an SSP and Sandtray group that will meet in person.  Please note that these are NOT trainings, rather an opportunity for psychotherapists to experience the listening program that we can then offer to clients.

 

Safe and Sound Protocol Online Group

 

Come play with us as we explore SSP, a wonderous tool created by Stephen Porges. Together we will attune to our inner experience, learn from each other and apply it creatively in our clinical practice.

Tove and Alexis have worked with SSP with groups, individuals and couples. We make this complicated tool accessible with warmth and curiosity. 

This group will meet five times for an hour each time. Participants will have access to the five hours of Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) listening program. During group meeting times, we will listen for 20 mins at a time with leaders providing co-regulation. Participants will also do listening outside of the group. 

$65/session. In each session meeting, you will have access to two SSP administrators with play therapy and Polyvagal expertise, the full 5-hour SSP listening program (valued at $350) as well as the opportunity to witness individual responses to this regulating tool

Safe and Sound Protocol and Sandtray

We warmly invite you to join us for a one-of-a-kind experience exploring the SSP through the playful medium of sand tray. Let's come together with open minds and hearts to attune to our inner experiences, learn from each other, and creatively apply this powerful tool to our clinical practice. We can't wait to share this journey with you!

Tove and Alexis have worked with SSP with groups, individuals and couples. We make this complicated tool accessible to those who are new to this experience with warm openness.

This group will meet five times for 90 minutes/session. Participants will have access to the 5-hour Safe and Sound listening program and will do listening in group as we create sandtrays that reflect our inner regulation.  At the fifth meeting, we will provide a slideshow highlighting our sandtrays and nervous system states.

In each session meeting, you will have access to two SSP administrators with play therapy and Polyvagal expertise, the full 5-hour SSP listening program (valued at $350), a sandtray and fully stocked sandtray room as well as the opportunity to witness individual responses to this regulating tool.

The Rhythm of Regulation
Building Safety from a Polyvagal Perspective

An Intensive Training Program

With
Deb Dana, LCSW.

The Plyvagal Theory

A Journey of Truth
Based on the stellar book by Byron Brown, "The Soul Without Shame" will be our guide to recognizing our true self and disengaging from the relentless tyranny of our self-judgements.  We will be exploring how to recognize our own judgments, recognize our direct experience of  being judged, along with how to embody our true self that is often hidden when we identify with the judge. We will do this through exercises, discussion and didactic experiences with compassion, curiosity and support.

Dr. Porgesí research offers a cutting edge framework for the treatment of trauma. Polyvagal Theory provides a state of the art map outlining a new way of looking at habitual patterns of action, disconnection, and engagement.

In this wonderful workshop series, Deb Dana translates Dr. Porgesí theory into clinical application with the creation of an integrated approach to polyvagal intervention.  We begin with an examination of Polyvagal Theory and the science of the autonomic nervous system followed by comprehensive study of the phases of polyvagal intervention. She does this with kindness, clarity and integrity.

"The greatest thing then...is to make our nervous system our ally as opposed to our enemy." William James

Kabbalistic Healing Study Group

This class introduces the concepts and practices of Kabbalstic Healing; a non-dual approach to body, mind, spirit healing through a series of six classes. Through the study group format we are able to come together in small communities of discussion, informative lecture, experiential exercises, and meditation to understand the nature and origin of existence, our place within it, and what God, healing, prayer, and suffering look like from the four major world views of mystical thought. Participants will also learn and practice a non-dual form of healing in class six.
