The Foundations of Human Happiness: Self-regulation via self-relational attunement
An 8-session course - Class size limited to 12 participants

All are welcome!


Each class date has a class page which you can access even if you could not make it. You must commit to attend at least 6 of the 8 sessions to view the recordings and class pages.

Class pages contain all of the class slides, audio recordings and additional footage of the instructor with exercises and other relational experiments. PARTICIPANT VIDEO RECORDINGS ARE NOT MADE PUBLIC PER THE REQUIRED CLASS AGREEMENT.

Our classes are just as effective online as they are in person


Join us and re-discover your innate capacity for feeling safe, attuned to self and others.


Regardless of past experiences, we all have a resilient biological structure. Even in the event of severely adverse childhood experiences, we can learn to thrive.

According to Somatic Science™ the foundation of happiness is relational safety. Relational safety is usually implicit, but we seek to explore it explicitly within our lived experience of this moment and this place. 

If you have experienced endurance trauma or any form of ACEs, this class is for you.


We use many polyvagal theory applications that I have discovered and put to the test in a period of over a decade.

In a small group setting we can learn to trust our natural insights and thus strengthen our core trust in life. Regardless of circumstances, the open structure of the class dynamic supports insight into any challenge that we might be experiencing.


Basic pre-requisites for participation:

  • A necessity for calm, peace and quiet within

  • Commitment to weekly encounters, if possible

  • Respect for the privacy and expression of others

  • Willingness to sincerely and openly speak about one's experiences

  • An attitude of openness to self-discovery and experiencing new ways of being in community


Federico works as a specialist in Somatic Science in the US, Mexico and Central America

When we are happy, we are calm, clear, fulfilled and at peace. These are other experiences that result:

• Body relaxation - RESTORATION
• Regulation of blood pressure
• Muscular ease
• Regulation of cardiovascular rhythm

  & tone
• Regulation of digestive processes
• Attunement of the central and

   autonomic nervous systems
• Improvement of vital energy

   circulation in the body/mind


• Clarity of thought - Reason

Summary of course objectives:

  • Experience and learn natural self-regulation (happiness) via titrated metacognition 

  • Learn about and cultivate the experiences of metacognition, neurocognition, exteroception, interoception and apperception

  • Understand how parts of the self are generated and maintained by the ANS - and how to release them safely

  • Understand the role of the threat response cycle (TRC) and its connection to adverse childhood experiences (ACE)s in generating and maintaining nervous system dysregulation (unhappiness)

  • Understand implicit objects and how to render them explicit via titrated metacognition & self-relational touch

  • Learn to understand human experience as a blend of perceptual and non-perceptual content

Within the neurocognitive model of Somatic Science™, 
dysregulation is an experience that is generated by the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) when in a state called the threat response cycle. Due to the intensity of the experience and its origin in evolutionary biology, human beings tend to fully identify with this experience. 


Somatic Science™ is a discipline born of insight. It is a neurogulatory model base on dialectical self-relation.
