“Nervous System Approaches for Resilient Community Living”

How to support nervous system regulation when we are with others? It’s called co- regulation, and there’s a lot of empirical data telling us how it works and how to benefit from it. For example, the Social Baseline Theory propounds that when we feel safe in the company of others, neurobiologically we budget less bioenergetic resources to do the same tasks. In this presentation, we explore these themes, key takeaways and some exercises to build successful communities. (2024)

A Relational Embodiment Residency at Life Itself (France)

We discussed with Boaz Feldman the recent residency at Life itself Praxis Hub (France) organized by Neurosystemics. Our main question was focused on Resiliency Circles (RC’s): what are they and how are they organized, and why do they work? An RC is a powerful place of discovery, an invitation to step into the here and now with your full self in a container of safety, offers a unique environment to experience a safe, regulating and enjoyable relational space. One can formulate it simply as “Resiliency Circles are spaces to practice embodying ourselves in relationships”. (2023)
