Experience initially happens at the level of the tissues and cells. It is immediate and direct.
Information of that experience is sent to the brain, where it is recorded, organized, integrated, and stored as patterns of perception and habits of behavior.
The brain is the last to know, but then uses the information it receives to shape and influence new experiences through memory of past experiences and projection into the future.
For experience to be realized as new, opening awareness at the cellular level is necessary so that old habits no longer control or direct what is experienced. By cellular level, I mean initiation and awareness directed locally by the cells, including the cells of the nervous system.
When we integrate the cells and nervous system, we increase the potential for balanced physical and emotional responses.
In this online course, we explore, through movement, touch, and consciousness, ways to embody and repattern perceptual and neurological processing and how embodying patterns of ease in the brain contributes to a sense of wellbeing.
Material is presented as a dialogue between the experience and action of our cells and tissues, and the recording, organizing, and directing of the nervous system.
This course is for you if you would like to learn how to:
- Improve comfort in the nervous system
- Gain awareness and insight into engaging the nervous system through perception
- Relieve pathways of stress by opening to and facilitating pathways of ease
- Explore the interplay between cellular and nervous system communication
- Increase your understanding of how the nervous system records, stores, and processes information
It offers ways to help you:
- Embody and explore the nervous system
- Understand the key role perception plays in forming habits
- Discover approaches to regulate and balance the autonomic nervous system
- Differentiate between and attune to yourself, others, and the environment
- Balance parasympathetic and sympathetic nerve pathways
- 12 class recordings (81 – 101 minutes each)
- more than 40 downloadable documents and illustrations
