The Science of Feeling Safe Enough To Fall in Love with Life and Take the Risks of Living

A Polyvagal Perspective on How We Are Human

Towards Compassion & Connection

Deb talking to an attendee at presentati

'The autonomic nervous system is a common denominator in the human family. We all share the same biobehavioural platform.'

Deb Dana

Through a Polyvagal approach to living, the door opens to compassion
An autonomic nervous system that co-regulates and self-regulates with ease creates the possibility to move out of the need for protection - and instead to embody a system that finds joy in connection.

My work as a clinician, consultant, author and speaker is focused on using a Polyvagal lens to understand and resolve the impact of trauma - and to create ways of working that honor the role of the autonomic nervous system as we move through states of protection and connection in an ongoing quest for safety. 

This website offers resources and material in various formats to provide a roadmap we can use to find our way to wellbeing in both our professional work and personal lives. Whether you are an established polyvagal enthusiast, clinician, practitioner or simply a curious human being at the beginning of your polyvagal journey – welcome!
