Vagal Toning to Calm the Nervous System
with Kathy Carroll
October 15 at 3:00pm
In this all-level yoga workshop you will discover the vagus nerve’s central role in your health and well being. The Latin root of “vagus” means wandering. The vagus nerve wanders all over the body, connecting the brain with all the major organs. We will focus on postures specifically related to it, along with energy-balancing movements, and a short yoga nidra (yogic rest). You will come away with simple tools you can use every day to ward off anxiety and depression, reduce stress, heal trauma, and be your best.
Writing from the Heart: An Introduction
with Jamila Davies
“Writers do not write to impart knowledge;
rather, they write to inform themselves.” -Judith Guest
Writing from the Heart is a technique that clarifies and connects us to our own inner landscape, where, letting go of the ego’s idea of how things should be, we open more fully to the almost magical experience of how things are. The combination of remembrance, connecting to our own version of higher power or the universe, and “writing without stopping” can produce insights and breakthroughs not usually seen without years of writing practice. We remove the constrictions that keep us bound and our writing begins to flow.
