Teach About Nervous System Regulation

6 Week Workshop

We have developed a 6 week workshop to teach people about the nervous system and to feed them. Each week we share an accessible and bite-sized 15 minute presentation on one aspect of the nervous system and provide a tool clients can use now to start the process of regulating their nervous system. Then we cook a meal together and chat.

Why the Nervous System?

Trauma changes the way our nervous system responds to the world around us. When a person has a healthy and regulated nervous system they can think clearly, make long term decisions and make choices that will be more in alignment with long term health. We will be providing tools that will help clients cultivate experiences of safety (sometimes for the first time), embodiment, and community.

How Can You Help?

We need places to teach our workshop out of, preferably with a stove. We need access to food to use in cooking our meals each week. We need recipes we can share with our clients that are affordable and can last a while in the fridge. Donations of tubberware and other containers we can give away - we like to send clients home with a meal or two.
