Triple Vagal Method™ Trauma Informed Somatic Bodywork Online & In-person Training - Join us for the first ever TVMtrainings offered in Europe!

TVM™ is coming to Europe!

Europe family, if you have been thinking of training with us for a while or have only just discovered the magic of TVM™, now is your chance to undergo a unique and accelerated training with us to heal your own traumas and become a TVM™ practitioner, all in the beautiful retreat setting of the Cortijo, Andalusia.

This comprehensive training program offers the ideal combination of flexible self-paced online learning and immersive hands-on practice and in-person mentorship. Blending the 205 hr online course - consisting of lectures, videos and online assessment - with in-person training and practice, you will acquire the expertise and experience necessary to share this transformative healing modality with others.

The in-person intensive training retreat allows individuals to put theory into action, apply the skills they have acquired through the online modules, and receive real-time feedback and guidance from experienced instructors. By incorporating practical exercises, demonstrations, and group discussions, this course ensures that participants can integrate their knowledge at a deeper level and gain confidence in their abilities.

The training will be held in the beautiful Cortijo San Jose, a recently renovated 200 year old moorish cortijo set in the rolling hills of the Andalusian countryside which is now home to a luxury retreat venue. With 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside, 25 degree heat in November and beautiful sunrise and sunset views each day, this is the perfect environment to immerse yourself in nature, allow yourself to be nourished with 3 delicious meals provided each day, and recalibrate the nervous system as you feel the transformational effects of this powerful healing modality.

In order to take part in the TVM™ Andalusia Training Retreat, participants will be required to complete the first two modules of the online training prior to the training retreat. You will then enter an intensive trauma healing container where you will receive live instruction and guidance from experienced TVM™ educators on theory and application of the Triple Vagal Method. You will have the opportunity to practice TVM™ every day and will both give and receive sessions, making this a powerful healing opportunity on your own healing journey.

Overview - Why TVM™?

The Triple Vagal Method® (TVM™) is a revolutionary somatic approach to releasing trauma from the body by inducing a therapeutic level of oxytocin, breaking down calcification of the fascia, and regulating the nervous system to build resilience. TVM™ is a modality that gives you measurable physical results and psychological results faster than anything out there. Working directly, safely and efficiently with the nervous system, TVM™ uses the intelligence of your body and its innate desire to optimally restore itself; releasing stress and trauma from the body & mind.

Trauma healing and building vagal tone supports a thriving human experience in virtually every way, everything from healthier bodies, stronger immune systems, less stress, capacity to make better decisions & a larger cognitive capacity to name a few. In fact, many may say it is the foundational prelude to absolutely every other successful & thriving experience or condition an individual can have. This training lays down the foundations of trauma & trauma healing through what may be the most effective bottom up approach; TVM™.

In-person practical training curriculum

By registering for this training, you will become part of our 4 month blended learning cohort, where you will have access to the Integrated Somatic Institute’s 205 hour online TVM learning programme, a series of 8 support calls with your dedicated TVM Educator team, as well as this one week in-person training to put theory into practice and give you the confidence and hands-on skills to offer TVM with integrity and assurance. Andalusia Week 2 is a natural follow on from Week 1, however it can be signed up for independently of the first week.

The focus of Week 2 of the in-person training is integration, inner intimacy and self-development. We will guide you through a deep expansion of your consciousness, with a loving hug to the nervous system as you embody the modality and the healing that it brings. You will learn about key topics / emotions that may come up in your client’s or your own lives. During this time of deep rest and integration, you will receive two TVM sessions from our team of TVM educators who themselves are advanced practitioners.

Participants need to have either completed the Week 1 in-person training, or Module 3 of the online training in order to take part in Week 2. A generous discount is available for those who sign up for Week 1 and Week 2 of the Andalusia trainings, we are offering both weeks for £4,444.

This curriculum has been designed to build on the foundational elements learned in modules one a two of the online training, giving you an embodied understanding of the Triple Vagal Method and its potency in healing trauma safely and effectively, before you do a deeper dive into the more complex theory in the later online modules. Each morning there will be an optional guided inner intimacy practice to help you cultivate your relationship with the consciousness within, empowering you to become a more embodied practitioner. There will be optional evening activities provided on some of the nights, such as sound healing and singing circles.

Maddies’ bio - Maddie Brown - Lead

I've always been deeply fascinated by the human mind and how it functions, and after studying psychology and embarking on an eight-year self-study journey, I've found both what I was looking for and so much more than I could have ever dreamed. A mind that no longer governs me, a body to which I am intuitively attached, an endless love for life, a nourishing love for myself, and an abundance and fulfilment in each blessing of each moment. My awareness, clarity, focus, and motivation are all rapidly increasing, I'm better equipped to realise my objectives and dreams every day, and my relationships and intimacy with life are fulfilling and priceless. My enthusiasm and excitement flow out from me, and when my emotions wash through me like clouds, I am in nearly in complete control of how I respond. My mind no longer attacks me with the kinds of stories it formerly did. I am deeply grateful for life and everything it has to offer; I now understand my purpose and am living my best life.

I had reached a spacious place within myself and have a magnificent tool belt of gifts to share with others as a ceremonialist facilitator, reiki master, and student of yoga, meditation, and trauma therapy. I had a deep calling to learn TVM, which I listened to instinctively and followed. Ever since, everything has been clear to me. The best present I could have given myself was a calm nervous system, which I can now graciously  share in co regulating with others. Practicing TVM is like returning to your true self. I firmly believe that enlightenment means having a balanced nervous system and a mind devoid of the stories and traumas kept in the body. I support this technique as I really believe in its effectiveness; you can only contribute in moving toward a brighter life going forward. If you choose to take this next step, I'm here to listen, offer any advice, and help you out along the way that I can.

I trained to become an Advanced practitioner so that I may share the gift of giving and receiving to others that will have a tremendous positive impact on the world.

I provide TVM pelvic floor, which enhanced intimacy, boundless openness, and a greater connection to oneself. Once more, I share this technique because it helped me so much and I want to provide it to everyone because we all deserve it.
