Even though you no longer live in the primitive jungle of your ancestors, your nervous system still reacts as if you do. This causes the sympathetic nervous system to constantly react even to minor conflicts with a fight, flight, or freeze response that served you well then, but now only makes you stressed out and on alert to danger when you don’t need to be. Accessing your parasympathetic nervous system is the antidote to this unnecessary stress. This part of the nervous system is the normal resting state of your body, brain, and mind, and it produces feelings of relaxation and peace. Connecting to it helps you gain access to your true, unconditioned self. This program led by Oliver Bailey begins by questioning the ego stories that circulate through your mind. Then we’ll connect with the still, silent space where these stories exist. Using internal exercises and meditation practices to stop the fight, flight, or freeze response and quiet the mind, we’ll allow ourselves to connect to the deep stillness of the true self. With this awareness, we can begin to confront, loosen, and shift identification from egos stories to a deeper identification.
You will also be taught a forgiveness process that you can utilize to bring about peace and stillness in your everyday lives. Everyone can learn these simple but effective steps to release fear and emotional pain and connect with the deep peace we all deserve. Take the time to be with your true self — the self beyond ego stories and personality. Energetic body work practices will also be used to show how the internal state affects the body.
