Open Attention (discussion by practitioners)
Polyvagal Theory and Continuum: discussion between Donnalea Van Vleet Goelz and Dr. Steve Porges.

For me, Continuum is the lived experience of self-nourishment. Our purpose is to find a door or portal into this nourishment. What I heard is that sharing is the prosocial aspect of polyvagal theory. 

That being said, I can share the results of my practice in a social context when my body has felt nourished: I am peaceful and less reactive and am even compassionate. Continuum Movement allows me to know what loving kindness actually feels like because I am being loving and kind to myself. 

I can share dive results inside the social engagement system of Continuum (experiencing the voices and faces of regulating others) also called communal sharing and while it is a lovely thing it is not actually necessary to experience the effect of the somatic movements within the Continuum experience. 

At the same time, so much of what Steve Porges said (30:36) describes a big part of the experience of Continuum, that is, if you throw away defensiveness, the body's endogenous rhythms can express themselves. He says that psychological stillness is allowing the homeostatic neuro physiological processes to optimize how they function."
