In the course you will learn:
Identify The Marks Of A Healthy Development
Learn the core needs and landmarks of a child's healthy development of the nervous system. Attachment and NeuroDevelopment are so intertwined and are crucial sensory experiences!
Address Your Development Gaps
Learn practical step-by-step solutions of restoring and reshaping the missing pieces of your Attachment and NeuroDevelopment needs. Imagine the ease of having some of your root needs finally met!
Break The Chain
No matter how hard we try not to, we pass on our own nervous system to our babies. Doing the work to restore our own nervous system will also enable us to pass this feeling of secure attachment on to our loved ones!
We all have gaps from childhood
Many of our current problems — both in our health and behaviors — are really just symptoms of our attachment and neurodevelopment gaps from childhood. We don't just grow up and grow out of these unhealthy patterns. Time isn't enough to heal. Even in a healthy upbringing, we can still have gaps in our development!

Darcia Narvaez, is a Professor of Psychology Emerita at the University of Notre Dame. She is the founder of the public and professional educational outreach project The Evolved Nest Initiative whose nonprofit mission is to share her science research into developing appropriate baselines for lifelong human wellness by meeting the biological needs of infants.
This well-being baseline is imperative at this time as the United States ranks 41st out of 41 developed countries in public policies that support families.
Live April 13th @ 8:30am PST
Special Guest Speaker : Bette Lamont
Topic: Neurodevelopment Movement and Reorganization
Bette Lamont is a lead NeuroDevelopmental Movement Practitioner. Her focus is on restoring the functions of the Central Nervous System's sensory and motor foundations, that provide the platform for the cognitive, creative, social and emotive cortex, with an emphasis on balanced, non-traumatizing parenting. The tools she uses come from long research and deep understanding of the Developmental Sequence, those movements, reflexes and sensory experiences that mature the brain.
Live April 22nd @ 9am PST
"I rarely meet people with whom I'm as much aligned as Bette Lamont,
with whom my work is so automatically aligned." Dr. Gabor Maté
