"Jan Winhall introduces a new strategy to treat addiction that brilliantly integrates Gendlin’s classic concept of a felt sense with Polyvagal Theory." ―Stephen W. Porges, PhD, scientist, author, creator of Polyvagal Theory

Course Overview

We expect to offer the next cohort in the second half of 2024. The course meets monthly for two hours live on Zoom for six months.

Participants must be graduates of Jan Winhall's course Felt Sense Polyvagal Model: A Certificate for Treating Trauma and Addiction or be preapproved by Jan Winhall. To register, please email with the course name and how you meet the prerequisite.

3 month payment plan is available at registration.

In our small group setting we delve into the concepts with our bodies leading the way through felt sensing and connecting with our autonomic nervous system. During the monthly two hour zoom classes we start with an embodied practice, and a check in, giving people an opportunity to share in the joys, the struggles, and the explorations of this important work that we do. In the second hour a volunteer presents a case using the Embodied Assessment and Treatment Tool (EATT). We dig into concepts, expanding our capacity to think at the edge, and to bring our rich experiencing into sessions. As we co-create this safe and adventurous space, we keep learning how to be intelligently present with our clients.

Focusing partnerships are encouraged and meet weekly or biweekly, forming the basis of our embodied interactions. People tell me that they feel connected, supported, and enriched in this thriving Felt Sense Polyvagal Community.

From Jan: "This group is like a think tank/practice lab. It has helped me to formulate and shape ideas and practices that are part of my Routledge book. It is one of my favorite places to be."

Students will have access to the course for 300 days from the date of purchase.

If you’re missing the community, looking to refresh your skills, or seeking input on a case, alumni of this course are welcome to drop-in to another live offering at $30/class. Please email to drop-in to an EATT Practice Lab class.


Up to 25 participants will meet monthly for two hours live on Zoom for six months.
