When we focus on nervous system care, we can catalyze deep healing in all aspects of life: emotional, psychological, physical, subtle, and spiritual. This work is essential when healing from trauma (of any kind). True healing is not a mental process; it is somatic, meaning it is necessary to connect healing with the body. We do this by working with the nervous system. If trauma is not fully processed, its effects erode our quality of life at best and leave us wholly debilitated at worst. Because humans often suppress instinct, trauma response gets locked into the body. The nervous system stays "on", and the result is a cascade of dysfunction.
Getting to know our nervous system intimately gives us access to a much deeper understanding of self than a mental-only approach to self-study. While the mind can draw a seemingly infinite number of conclusions, the body does not lie. It responds directly and immediately to stimulus and can give us feedback that the mind misses.
Additionally, nervous system strength is essential for holding and integrating the powerful influx of energies which correspond to spiritual awakening. I have spent the last twenty years healing myself. This includes healing from trauma, abuse, addiction, mental illness, physical illness and more. If I were to narrow down what has had the most significant impact, it would be working with my nervous system.
In this course, I offer you the best and most effective practices which I have learned, or created myself, from two decades of study in healing, wellness, yoga, energetics, somatic awareness, embodiment, consciousness, nutrition, physical fitness, and spiritual practice. Here, you will gain tools and insights to create healing, manage stress, mitigate the lingering effects of trauma, and optimize your wellbeing. These practices will continue to serve you far beyond the scope of our time together. They are life-long tools and when practiced over time, you'll find them to be a gateway to ever-increasing quality of life.
Taking this course was one of the best things I have gifted my self.
@MantrasAndMiracles is one of the members of my “support team” (In my head of course - there is no such a formal thingy) Jessica has put together this program description below that was like Love At First sight for me. Once I read it I was immediately convinced to take the course. You can reach out to her via her

I believe creating a relationship with your body is the first step to anything. This course like a couples therapy for me and my body. I restarted a conversation with my body after this course and that was the biggest revolution in my life.
Here is the course description!
Nervous system capacity is maybe the most critical asset we can cultivate if we want to live a deeply engaged and fulfilling life. The nervous system corresponds
directly to our physical health, our ability to experience joy and pleasure, our ability to withstand pressure and challenge, our feelings of wellbeing, and our depth of intimacy. In this four-week experiential course, we'll use several modalities to both strengthen and relax the nervous system, creating profound shifts in healing,self-awareness, relationships, and stress management.
When your nervous system is weak, you feel reactive, agitated, negative, numb, checked-out, consumed by stress and fatigue. Well-meaning endeavors to create expansion or change inevitably result in collapse or overwhelm. When your nervous system is strong and relaxed, you feel vibrant, vital, creative, and expansive. You are intuitively responsive, open to deep intimacy and pleasure, embodied, and able to care for yourself well.
At its core, any practice or technique which elicits healing is working with the nervous system. Although it's not often given direct credit, it is, in fact, the central key to your wellbeing.
