Polyvagal Theory & Protest with Nicole Bindler


Nov 21 2020


Eastern Time
12:30 pm




Using contemporary knowledge about the social nervous system and our brilliantly evolved bodily coping strategies let’s co-regulate through dancing, singing, bouncing, breathing, and bodywork. Even in those little zoom squares we can find some togetherness to recuperate and ready ourselves for whatever lies ahead.
November 7th––Preemptive Recuperation: finding the yield in lieu of a collapse
November 14th––The Wandering Nerve: tonifying the vagus/tuning into our guts
November 21st––Care Work: fortifying the social nervous system
November 28th––Emergent Design: strategies for collective decision making
