Let Go Of Conditioned Thinking Patterns By Tuning Into "Felt Presence" of Your Immediate Sensory Experience
The practice of mindfulness has become crucial to navigate today's hyper-stimulating 24/7 world of hypnotic screens, information overload and mindless distraction.
However, it's also becoming much more important at this time of growing ecological crisis that we connect our daily spiritual practices to the living, breathing world around us.
Developing ecological awareness of our interconnection with the more-than-human world is necessary to understand the collective myopia that only serves the short-term needs, comfort and rights of human beings.
In a bewildering time when the average person spends close to 95% of their time indoors, we desperately need to break free from the chains of sedentary living if we want to let go of the overthinking, hyper-stimulation and restlessness that characterizes the modern existential crisis.
This live online training program will cover foundational mindful breathing and nature connection practices for learning to relax naturally without external substances and screens while cultivating a deeper sense of ecological awareness and kinship with the more-than-human world.
We will start off by looking at the science of how mindfulness and different breathing patterns help us go beyond and conceptualization to fully relax and a balanced state of coherence in our autonomic nervous system.
You will gain an understanding of how your autonomic nervous system works (ANS) and how you can use the breath to control the two key activations of the ANS
1. The Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS), often called the stress response and what we use to stay alert, focused and navigate through the stress and challenge of a busy work day.
2. The Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS), often called the relaxation response where we quiet the mind and feel present and relaxed so we can recharge and reconnect.
This series of live training workshops will also cover how the science of how the vagus nerve influences the functioning of the ANS and connects all your major organs to the crucial brain-heart-gut axis.
Pioneering research in the last decade has found that improving vagal tone through mindful breathing and embodied connection practices is a crucial antidote to the high levels of stress, anxiety and burnout of 21st century life.
We live in a busy and chaotic world where the stress response becomes over-activated and we need to build habits and rituals to fully unplug and allow our body to recharge, sleep deeply and shake off tension.
At the end of this live workshop, you will have learned foundational mindful breathing patterns and nature connection practices that can significantly improve your vagal tone and facilitate a more harmonious state of heart-mind coherence and psycho-spiritual integration.
