Part 1–What Is The Vagus Nerve and Why Do I Care?

Learn about the vagus nerve and its important functions in the body.

Learn simple techniques on how to “tone” the vagus nerve to engage the parasympathetic nervous system and to calm our bodies.

Part 2–Exercise and Movement

Learn how exercise and movement can help move trauma and stress out of our bodies.

Learn about the benefits of bi-lateral stimulation.

We will be using some Qi Gong videos from YouTube that you will be able to use on your own.

Part 3–Anyone Can Engage In Creative Expression

Learn how using creative expression can help move stress and trauma out of the body.

We will spend a bit of time actually doing some art.  This art has nothing to do with whether you can draw or not.  It is about engaging with the process and having fun. Please bring some paper and drawing implements such as colored pencils, crayons, markers etc.
