Professional Development Training in BodyDreaming® Module 6 – June 16-18th
Summer is almost here — we are ready for Module 6 of the BodyDreaming Training – Attunement and Attachment: Finding that Secure Base within, June 16-18th.
Module 6 can be taken as a stand alone module or you may wish to pick up on the training programme. To those of you who might have missed earlier modules please do consider joining us for this upcoming module. There are more details in the flyer attached below, and let us know if you have any questions.
For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere Module 6 falls close to Summer Solstice and the vitality, vibrancy, fullness of that season offers an opportunity to deepen into these new pathways of attunement in the safe container that has been established. It affords us the possibility to attune to the inner felt sense resonance with our cellular wisdom from earliest life experiences. The connection with our embryology opens us to the innate wisdom and organic intelligence that already lies in our bodies. We feel more grounded in our cells, in our tissue, in our bones, in the musculature which supports our nervous system responses. Establishing a more regulated nervous system is key to the repair of our early attachment patterns and fosters an embodied core sense of self, a learned secure base. From this point of an embodied learned secure base we have a heightened awareness of the flow of inter- connectivity that connects all life on our planet and in our universe, the Anima Mundi that binds all things.
We continue the BodyDreaming training journey with Module 6: “Attunement and Attachment: Finding That Secure Base Within Part Three”.
As we explored in Modules 4 and 5, BodyDreaming highlights the relational aspect of regulation – co-regulation with the other. It is a process that connects us deeply to an embodied core sense of self in relationship to the other.
The attachment patterns and wiring of the brain are impacted by the relationship between the primary carer and the infant. Earlier still the environment of the womb is the primary experience of regulation. The regulatory process in the infant’s nervous system is established by the to-ing and fro-ing from times of calm to times of stimulation in the relationship between the infant and the environment. A lack of regulation produces insecure attachment.
As we grow we are not always met how we would wish, and insecure attachment patterns can also form as a result of life’s challenges, traumas and limitations.
In this module, Part Three of Attunement and Attachment: Finding That Secure Base Within, we will continue the work of renegotiating our habitual insecure attachment patterns and responses. These patterns are often laid down in the first 36 months of life before the hippocampus is fully functioning, which is responsible for memory encoding and memory consolidation.
Experiences during this formative time are stored in “implicit memory”, in our body, out of our conscious awareness or verbal expression. We will work to uncouple and free up body memory that may be connected to attachment patterns.
“Implicit memory can influence our present without our awareness that something from the past is affecting us.” (Siegel, 2010, p.149)
With this practice we can experience an embodied core sense of self which forms the base for a secure attachment style.
In this module we will continue in our small groups to practice Attunement, Slowing down the process, and Titrating overwhelm. We will explore such topics as Implicit memory, Coupling and Uncoupling, Dissociation, Freeze and Shame.
