Jim speaks with Dr. Stephen Porges who is known throughout the world as the founder of Polyvagal Theory and the music-based intervention, the Safe and Sound Protocol ™ , which currently is used by more than 1400 therapists to reduce hearing sensitivities and to improve language processing, state regulation, and spontaneous social engagement.

  • How higher vagal tone is related to better health.
  • What is “violation of expectancy” and how we can use it for good.
