A Little More Overview...
Again, based on Deb Dana's Polyvagal Card Deck. Here is a short video where Dana describes the deck and the applications for calm, inner peace...self-regulation! www.facebook.com/NortonMentalHealth/videos/1236613353761609/
And below two more cards pointing out important concepts and the three states of regulation.
I think it is amazing to realize that the three states below developed from the bottom up: "The dorsal vagus is the first branch of the parasympathetic nervous system and is part of our ancient biology. In high activation it is responsible for our involuntary shut-down response – we freeze, faint, fold, feign or fragment. In low activation it allows us to engage in activities that are essential for the organism – digesting, producing stores of nutrients and substances vital to our continued health such as myelin, dopamine and serotonin." From The Hippocratic Post: www.hippocraticpost.com/australasia/polyvagal-theory-and-the-potency-of-the-dorsal-state/
Next was the sympathetic system, or 'flight or flight' and lastly the ventral state where we are grounded, life feels manageable and we have hope.
