NeuroSystemics is a pro-social organization leading clinical trainings and personal development programs across the globe. We bring the latest neurosciences, a systemic lens and wisdom traditions to understand how our our nervous system can be better regulated.
This Workshop: “Embodying Cognition”
In the Cartesian worldview, mind and body are considered separate and disconnected. However, the latest neuroscientific evidence show intricate interdependencies between the body, feelings and mental phenomena. This means that our thoughts impact our body, and vice-versa, our body impacts our mood and the quality of our thoughts. In this workshop we will explore theoretically and experientially how body and mind can help one another into helpful cycles of self-regulation. We will also explore how this somatic approach to mental well-being and healing can be practiced in 1:1 relational interactions with a short live demonstrations.
After this workshop you will be able to
- Experience a practice to help soothe and energize your nervous system
- Understand the science behind a healthy body-mind relationship
- Practice 3 somatic tools to help nourish and regulate yourself and others
The workshop will include:
- Short experiential practices
- Academic and evidence-based presentations of scientific frameworks for nervous system functioning
- 1:1 Live demonstration and analysis
