In this series, we focus on bringing co-regulation skills and practice into our personal and professional lives.

We start by grounding ourselves in our own capacity for embodiment and peer relating. We focus on assessing autonomic nervous system states, your own and others. Then, we cover how to choose exercises for yourself and your clients, in the moment.

We will practice the Four Skills for Embodiment in relational space and exercises for up-regulation, down-regulation, and regulation for connection.

Each session will include time for co-regulation and learning new practices and concepts.

In this small class, we can address participants’ individual situations and specifics for burn-out prevention, and do some case supervision.

“Polyvagal Theory identifies co-regulation as a biological imperative: a need that must be met to sustain life.”

- Deb Dana, author of The Polyvagal Theory in Therapy

Connected 8s

What You Can Expect:

Co-regulation expands our capacity to respond to the complexity and intensity of modern life, without getting overwhelmed or burnt out. We practitioners need this resource and so do our clients and students.

Class will be limited to 6 people. We will explore your personal and professional interests, including tailoring the practices for your populations.

You will need internet, a computer or tablet with internet and Zoom downloaded, and a private space with good lighting on your face. The bigger the screen the more possibility for co-regulation, no phones.

Beth Dennison

Beth brings 50 years of teaching, psychotherapy, bodywork and study of neuroscience, including Polyvagal theory, to designing learning experiences that rewire our brains for connection and co-regulation. She models the embodiment she teaches. 

Her groundbreaking book on Body Up! Co-Regulation provides a much needed remedy to the disconnection and dysregulation that pervade modern culture. She developed Body Up! Co-Regulation to rewire our nervous systems for peer relationships. We need to trust peer relationships in order to cooperate better and to get off of the hierarchical ladder of oppression.

Beth’s Body Up! Handbook will anchor and organize your learning. 

This ground breaking book introduces Body Up! Co-Regulation which offers tools to cultivate embodiment and connection in a safe and engaging way. Life is a regulation game. We need to be able to calm down to sleep, rev up to work and play, and attune to others for successful relationships.  Dysregulation wastes a lot of time and energy. It makes us tired, sick, ornery and stupid. It wears us out, body and soul.

Catch dysregulation early while you still have enough oxygen in your brain to do something about it!
