Marlysa’s work has centered on connecting philosophy with science through yoga meditation. She has studied the autonomic nervous system extensively to explore the body-mind relationship and has also experienced how this system offers a perspective on supporting both a sense of inner and outer connection. This talk will include concepts of polyvagal theory, autonomic regulation, and the relationship to  supporting a sense of connectedness that spans from oneself, to others, and to a life of flourishing as one connects to deeper meaning and purpose. Marlysa will discuss how yoga offers a path of meditative self inquiry to connect deeply to one’s values such that this inner and outer connectedness and harmony is actualized.  The session will also include a discussion with Pam and Amina on these topics and a practice.The practice will be one of meditative self inquiry to help the participant experience this work of the autonomic nervous system and polyvagal theory in relating deeply to one’s values and inner/outer connection.
