Sensing and Acting: Becoming who we are in the world
In this 2 hour 20 minute online workshop, we explore ourselves from the nervous system with experiential exercises that take theory and place this firmly in your experience. We begin with the evolution of the nervous system, its role and varying functions, before experientially exploring Polyvagal Theory.
The aim of this workshop is to understand how we constantly impacted by our nervous system in relationship to the world, how we can develop a compassionate understanding of our responses, how sensing awakens embodiment, and through awareness we can create more regulation.
The workshop ends with a Yoga class and Pranayama, and is eligible for 2 hours CPD.
A 12 page handout accompanies the workshop including worksheets.
Embodying the Nervous System Workshop is recorded from the live workshop that took place in Manchester on 28th January 2023. To protect the privacy of the participants, their sharings are not included in this recording.
Through embodied inquiry and experimentation, Sensing and Acting: Becoming who we are in the world is an invitation to pause auto-pilot mode, and connect to the embodied wisdom and creativity of nervous system.
‘Perceiving is about relating personally to the processes of the inner and outer environment, and it involves choice. In action we align our perceptions with our attention, desire, and intention.’
Why this workshop matters
When we can feel our inner world more clearly, we gain more choice in how to be in our outer world so we can be less reactive, more responsive. A felt knowledge of being at home in our bodies and on earth. Research has shown that those with an accurate felt sense of their bodies are better to able to self-regulate.
In this workshop we’ll explore the central nervous system, including the autonomic nervous system and sensory nervous system. Featuring Yoga, pranayama, and creative movement, this experiential workshop is for practitioners with a background in Yoga, dance, or/and other movement practices.
