Exploring the Vagus System & the Health that is Never Lost with Janet Evergreen

June 22 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Saturday – Monday, June 22, 23, 24
9:00 am – 5:00 pm

This workshop is Full.

Through study of the Vagus nerve learn the importance of self-regulation of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system and increase your understanding of the fight, flight and freeze patterns wired into body memory. Experience how gentle touch can facilitate co-regulation by
connecting and repairing the social nervous system. This supports healing, accurate perception and development of healthy boundaries.

Learn how to listen deeply, gently touching through the body layers with kind loving presence to support healing from stress, fear and shock. Slow guided explorations will help renegotiate relationship to past present and future, for Self and with others. Beginning with skin, connective tissue, kidney/adrenals, brainstem and gut you will discover systems of inherent
health that move in the direction of wellness.
