Our modern nervous systems contend with multi-sensory overload, the pressure to produce, an ever-expanding cyberspace, and a stream of opportunities to compare ourselves to others. And now, we have a worldwide pandemic and the chaos it's leaving in its wake. Emerging research points to the importance not of calm but resilience, the ability to feel our challenges and return to balance.
Much like today's world, the body constantly changes in unpredictable ways. Interoception, our attention to momentary bodily sensation, plays a key role in training our brain to navigate large social change. How can we use our body and interoception as a valuable source of input and balance?
Drawing from emerging research and tools from the yoga and mindfulness traditions, we’ll address ways to balance but also live with the experience of anxiety. We'll learn the importance of developing interoception as a means of relating differently to anxiety, panic, and fear. We’ll explore how to be more “at home” in the changing wilderness of the body and the changing world around us.
We'll have an extra 15 mins. for questions (2.25 hours total).
