Embodying Safety: An integration of Safe and Sound Protocol and Somatic Experiencing

Individual Program: 3 month package

This Polyvagal-Informed approach uses sound and vibration (Safe and Sound Protocol) and Somatic Experiencing to facilitate a deeper sense of embodiment in the body-mind. This is a titrated process of awakening to your authentic expression of self.

This will help you:

  • Experience the underlying neurobiological states, strategies, and beliefs systems that arise in the aftermath of acute or chronic stress and developmental wounding;
  • Discover the movement patterns that support coherence and embodiment of the near and far senses;
  • Identify fight, flight, freeze patterns that are the undercurrent of many common conditions in the world today; and
  • Reclaim a greater sense of connection to themselves and enhance the capacity for attuned relational presence with others.

Paula uses her intuitive abilities and combines this with her training in Sound Therapy, Safe and Sound Protocol, Somatic Experiencing, Interpersonal Neurobiology, BodyMind Centering, Embodied Recovery Principles, and Embodied Consciousness practices, to guide you through a transformative experience that illustrates how our bodies hold the key to both our suffering and our resilience.

Includes psychoeducation on Polyvagal Theory, sound therapy sessions (weekly), follow-up meeting, access to SSP 3-Pathways for 3 months, & weekly tracking and somatic coaching.

Embodying Safety: SSP Experiential Workshops for Somatic Providers

Please visit the workshop page for full details.

Embodying Safety is a Polyvagal-Informed experiential workshop that uses sound and vibration to reconnect you to your authentic expression of self by re-establishing a blueprint for safety in the body and nervous system. Using sound and vibration, you will receive the frequency of safety through the auditory pathway for 5 hours during a 12-week time frame. During this journey, you will traverse the body-mind experience touching into your interpersonal neurobiology, stress response, and sensory processing system. This experience will illuminate your personal, intergenerational, and collective patterns that have been dissociated from conscious awareness and allow the body and nervous system to resonate to the felt sense of safety of the present moment.

This 12-week Online experiential group will help providers:
• Experience the underlying neurobiological states, strategies, and beliefs systems that arise in the aftermath of acute or chronic stress and developmental wounding;
• Discover the developmental movements that support coherence and embodiment of the near and far senses;
• Identify fight, flight, freeze patterns that are the undercurrent of many common conditions in the world today; and
• Reclaim a greater sense of connection to themselves and enhance the capacity for attuned relational presence with others.

***PLEASE NOTE: This group is experiential in nature and includes the use of an auditory listening system called The Safe and Sound Protocol. You are encouraged to participate to the level of your ability and comfort. Please find information about Safe and Sound Protocol at https://integratedlistening.com/. If you feel hesitation or unable to participate in any of the activities, please communicate this to the training facilitator.

This workshop includes access to SSP 3-Pathways Listening System for 3 months, 10-acoustic listening sessions, weekly tracking and somatic coaching, and group closure session. Participants will also be required to come prepared with somatic tools, art and journaling materials, to use in each listening session.

Is This Work Right for You?

The best way to know if this is right for you is to experience it. Words do not adequately convey the nature of this transformative work. So, my invitation is to read the entire website and get in touch with me if this approach feels right for you. Embodiment sessions require you to “be with” yourself in a whole new way. To slow down, to listen. It is truly a gift that you are giving yourself and I am honored to be on that path with you.

Somatic Experiencing (“SE”)

Somatic Experiencing® is considered a body-focused naturalistic approach that is designed to reduce stress symptoms that are believed to be associated with overwhelming or stressful life events. SE is based on the premise that the body holds the memory of unmetabolized events that are fixed in the lower brain structures associated with fight, flight, and freeze. These events are believed to lead to an imbalance in the nervous system and related associated indications. SE is intended to be a gentle approach meant to resolve and discharge unresolved survival energies. During a SE session, clients are guided to attend to body sensations with the goal of rebalancing the nervous system. SE is considered a non-cathartic and present oriented approach. SE is designed to work with the innate body intelligence for the purpose of bringing organization and integrity to the mind, body, and brain.

Safe and Sound

Safe and Sound Protocol is a neuropsychological approach to health and healing
Safe and Sound Protocol, developed by Dr. Stephen Porges is based on 4 decades of research on the relationship between the autonomic nervous system and socio-emotional processes. SSP was designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity, enhancing social engagement and resilience. SSP is a sound healing program that shifts the physiology into a state of neurological safety creating the conditions for new, positive connections in the brain to occur, and allowing for the integration of the body and mind so that one can hear, feel, see and sense the world and others as benevolent and loving.

Biofield Approaches

It’s believed that the human biofield is the sum of all the waves emanating from the body, much like an energy blueprint that corresponds holistically to the whole of the human organism. When the patterns of these energy waves are “in tune”, it’s referred to as coherence much like the sound of an orchestra when all the instruments are in tune. The premise is that when our biofield is in harmony and coherently synchronized with one another we are in health. However, if there are areas that are not in-tune, unbalanced and/or dissonant, incoherence can manifest which can result in symptoms. Biofield approaches are designed to improve coherence in the mental, physical, and emotional aspects of the body.
