Publisher's Summary

An intense conversation, a spat with a partner, or even an obnoxious tweet - these situations aren't life-or-death, yet we often react as if they are. That's because our bodies treat most perceived threats the same way. Yet one approach has proven to be incredibly effective in training our nervous system to stop overreacting: polyvagal theory.

In Anchored, expert teacher Deb Dana shares a down-to-earth presentation of polyvagal theory, then brings the science to life with practical, everyday ways to transform your relationship with your body. Using field-tested techniques, Dana helps you master the skills to become more aware of your nervous system moment to moment - and change the way you respond to the great and small challenges of life.

Here, you'll explore:

  • Polyvagal theory - get to know the biology and function of your vagus nerve, the highway of the nervous system
  • Befriending your nervous system - attune to what's going on in your body by developing your "neuroception"
  • Practices and guidance to gently shape your nervous system for greater resilience, intuition, safety, and wonder

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Know thyself.

After decades of talk therapy , this knowledge is a game changer.
IFS and Polyvagal theory, Hakomi and somatic experience help shift the old paradigm for CPTSD.
Thank you.

Pure Waffle

It’s like she took a load of LSD & started writing. All mixed up & full of silly exercises that seem to have no purpose. Some big words but no scientific information or leanings

Easily accessible introduction to nervous system regulation

This work offers a very practical guide to understanding and befriending your nervous system, and how to support movement towards greater states of regulation and experiences of safety and wellbeing. I find Deb’s voice a regulating resource to learn these new ideas, and loved the many and varied exploration exercises to put theory into practise.
