Do you...


  • Often feel overwhelmed or drained by other people?
  • Find yourself reacting before you’ve had the time to think things through?
  • Want to improve the quality of the connection in your relationships?

If yes, then this workshop could help you.


In this workshop, you‘ll learn the latest research on how our connections impact our nervous system and why co-regulation powerfully influences our body and mind. You’ll understand why co-regulation is the antidote to the highs of anxiety and overwhelm as well as the lows of shut down and shame.


What’s included:

  • 60-minute workshop on the nervous system and connection
  • There will be a live Q&A at the end so you have an opportunity to get your questions answered
  • Experiential exercises for optimal learning

Who is this workshop for?


This workshop has been specially curated for the graduates of the Vagus Nerve Program and we’re excited to announce we’re also opening this up to our wider learning community! 

In this brand new workshop you'll learn:

  • How to attune to another person’s difficult experience without being overwhelmed by their emotions.


  • Attachment styles and the nervous system: the neurobiology behind each type


  • Why social connection, psychological health & physical health are all interrelated and the common neural circuits they use.


  • The neurobiology of stress & emotional contagion, and how you can keep your nervous system regulated around other people.


  • Co-regulation or co-dependency? Know the difference


  • How to be a coregulator for another person AND take care of your own nervous system


  • You’ll learn to recognise your own unique nervous system patterns in different settings so that you can respond rather than react

“Life-changing resources, you will learn so much about your body and mind.”
