The course outline:

This course will focus on wholeness as it pertains to a healthy nervous system and how it is integral for overall health and wellbeing.  Without this, we see dysfunction in digestion, mood, hormones, the immune system, focus, cognition, and sleep just to name a few.  In this course series, we will explore the inter-relatedness of the central, autonomic, and enteric nervous systems. No techniques will be taught, instead we will learn to “cooperate and communicate with the laws not framed by human hands.” We will treat the nervous system as it relates to the Whole.  Our awareness will be on the Natural aspects of Primary Respiration. We will observe that the nervous system heals within the Dynamic Stillness without process or time, and watch it reborn in each moment while the Tide brings us the Life Force that feeds us.

The course will flow with your questions and traverse the topics below, including practicals on the CNS and the whole patient.
