Sitting with the Nervous System

Being able to sit intelligently with our nervous system is one of those transformative life skills. Many of us are buffeted about by our nervous systems, but the insights of neuroscience combined with the ancient methods of yoga and meditation can make us 'neuroceptive ninjas'!

About the event

Meditating (or indeed, living) without a working knowledge of the different states of the nervous system can be very confusing! 

We try to calm the mind but energy in the nervous system interprets are stillness as freeze and sends out a deluge of agitating chemistry and panicky thinking. 

Or we try and sit still when the body is already collapsed into a regressed state of immobility. This state actually needs to move gently not compound the intenstity by stilness. 

Working with the insights of Stephen Porges' work into the three fluid states of the nervous system - dorsal, spinal and ventral - Alistair weaves neuroscientific information into a clear road-map for navigating through the feeling of being alive. On the cushion. Or more generally, out in the world. 

Suitable for beginners and anyone interested in using natural, somatic methods for navigating mental health.
