The Biology of Connection and Success through a Polyvagal lens
New book by Deb Dana on Reshaping Behaviors
Deb Dana’s latest book, Anchored, presents a simple, hopeful message: when you ground yourself with openness and curiosity, you can gain the understanding necessary to reshape your behaviors. Deb draws on her extensive work with Polyvagal Theory to create the framework within Anchored, building on the research of Stephen Porges.
Dana illustrates the conditions needed to create the feeling of safety, and how to replicate these when faced with stress and conflict. The book contains both theoretical frameworks, and tangible exercises for the reader.
Nancy Rubbico’s mission is to make Polyvagal Theory accessible to all through her work with the Bocas Method. Her goal is to uplift and transform lives by fostering a deep understanding of the nervous system and its impact on behavior. With this understanding, individuals can be empowered to communicate more effectively, increase awareness of their choices, create satisfying connections, access more curiosity and openness, and increase their sense of compassion to overcome difficult situations. Interactions will be more effective and enriching.
