Many people are having difficulty relaxing their nervous systems and returning to a parasympathetic (rest and digest) state. All the upheaval, violation of basic rights, and hate-crimes is heart breaking and throws many people into a sympathetic (fight, flight, or freeze) state.
Once in fight-or-flight it can be difficult to get out. And yet getting out of fear, panic, and reactive survival mode is crucial to sustaining oneself and having the ability to be present, active, and grounded in integrity and good choices.
It is also difficult to sleep, eat, and act when you are stuck in fight-flight-freeze mode. And I have heard many people struggling with these basic functions recently. These are tough, scary times!!
Having tools to bring yourself back into rest-and-digest mode is essential for health and vitality. And the world needs you to be ready for action.
So I am moved to offer Quieting Your Nervous System (part 2) on Tuesday, March 21st from 5:45pm-6:45pm. Part 2 will be a stand alone class, so come whether you attended part 1 or not.
At my last free class, SomaSpace was filled with a diverse group of people who were looking for help quieting down and relaxing in their body, mind, and souls. Through gentle breathing exercises, small rocking motions, and resting, they released more fully into the floor and their bodies expanded in movement, showing their muscles were letting go and their systems were registering the safety to relax and rejuvenate.
If this need to quiet down and restore, to breathe more fully, to feel the ground beneath you in a fuller way resonates with you, please join me for Quieting the Nervous System, part 2. It’s a free class.
A gift to you from me in these difficult times, when community is essential and self-care must be prioritized in order to endure and catalyze change.
Bring your loved ones and share the gift of peace and quiet.
