In today’s episode, we have Dr. Ian Macnaughton, Ergos Institute of Somatic Education Faculty Member. We explored trauma and ADHD, somatic experiencing, and the importance of small cycles of completion (bonus interactive demo of somatic experiencing at the end 😏).

 

Detailed show notes: 

In today’s episode, we have Dr. Ian Macnaughton, Ergos Institute Faculty Member. We talked about: 

  • Trauma and ADHD - key characteristics, how it affects your neurophysiology, and re-regulation. 
  • The vagus nerve and its importance - expansion, and contraction, shutdowns, and ramifications of negative experiences.
  • Somatic experiencing - the importance of our senses and how developing them move us towards regulating our entire being. 
  • Completion - why tiny steps matter more than you think, and how it instills hope and agency in people. 

(and a bonus interactive demo of somatic experience with Dr. Macnaughton!)
