Relaxed Presence: How Understanding Your Nervous System Can Strengthen Your Capacity For Presence

We want to be present, especially with people and in situations that matter to us. And yet, being present in a relaxed way can feel challenging.

In this webinar, we will explore “relaxed presence” through a lens that combines Focusing/Felt Sensing with Dr. Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal theory of the nervous system.

“Relaxed Presence” will have psychoeducational and experiential components.

We want to be present, especially with people and in situations that matter to us. And yet, being present in a relaxed way can feel challenging.

In this webinar, we will explore “relaxed presence” through a lens that combines Focusing/Felt Sensing with Dr. Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal theory of the nervous system.

“Relaxed Presence” will have psychoeducational and experiential components:

We will look at the three nervous system states through the Polyvagal Theory lens.

We will explore—by bringing friendly awareness to—what stands in the way of being present.

You will have a chance to reflect on your own nervous system patterns so that you can learn to notice what state you are—or tend to be—in, and from there, develop your own breadcrumb trail back to the nervous system state of relaxed presence.

This class is intended for anyone interested in Focusing/Felt Sensing (whether seasoned practitioner or newbie) who is also curious about how the state of their nervous systems—seen through the Polyvagal Theory lens—impacts their capacity to be in relaxed presence.

Heidi Fischbach helps people relax so they can feel at home in their bodies and have a sense of belonging no matter where in the world they are.

Heidi holds a master’s degree in education from Harvard University and is certified as a Focusing Professional (The International Focusing Institute), provider of Dr. Stephen Porges’ Safe & Sound Protocol (SSP), an acoustic intervention to re-set the nervous system (Unyte-ILS), and massage therapist (Muscular Therapy Institute).

In her online and in-person practice, Heidi provides one-on-one coaching and group classes based in Focusing and nervous system regulation, including her signature class & mini-retreat “Relaxed U: Because When You Feel Better, You Love Better.” www.heidistable.com
