Stimulating your inner calm: working to restore your inner balance in chaotic times

In challenging times, it is important to firstly be aware of how your body is responding to stress, and then to have tools to manage your stress response physiologically, as well as knowing how to re-energise yourself when life has depleted you in some way.  The key is to be able to recognise when you have moved away from balance and then be able to bring yourself back to a physiological balance easily and the great news is – we can learn how to do this really easily.

This workshop will explore:

  • The keys to Neuroception – being able to recognise where your body is at in any moment in time with regards to how you are responding to stress
  • The concepts of depletion and renewal – to recognise what saps your energy and what refuels it
  • The basis of understanding your autonomic reactivity – do you respond with fight? flight?  freeze?  Recognising your own pattern will increase your self awareness of how you respond under stress – which is the first step to being able to change that response.
  • Practical tips for stimulating the Parasympathetic Nervous System (in particular the Vagus Nerve) – which brings rest and repair to the body and brings your system back to balance

Who should attend

Anyone who feels they need more energy and wants to understand their natural reaction to stress in order to manage the stress in their life better.
