NAVIGATING FEAR and Healing the Nervous System

Today’s episode of Bodywise Wednesday is Part 3 of our 4 Part “Navigating the Darker Emotions Series” and today our topic is ~  NAVIGATING FEAR and healing the nervous system.

(Scroll down if you want to dive right into the video!)

In this episode, I’m interviewing Irene Lyon, MSC.

Irene is a nervous system specialist and therapeutic coach who helps people release their deepest traumas from the level of the nervous system allowing them to finally heal from chronic mental, physical, and emotional conditions they’ve tried everything to fix.

Irene has extensively studied and practices the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, Peter Levine (founder of Somatic Experiencing) and Kathy Kain (founder of Somatic Practice). Irene has a master’s degree in research in the fields of biomedical and health science. She regularly appears on podcasts and online summits teaching all things nervous system health, healing trauma and neuroplasticity.

She facilitates a cutting edge healing program called Smartbody Smartmind designed to give people the knowledge and skills to become their own healers and rewire their own nervous systems.

Irene is an amazing facilitator, she balances compassion and insight with a brilliant scientific background and I’m so honored to welcome her to the show today

We discuss:

  • How the well-being of our nervous system impacts our emotional well-being in general
  • How fear impacts our ability to heal
  • How to navigate the FEAR of FEAR
  • Why when we have one unprocessed trauma why we are more likely to experience MORE trauma or accidents
  • Why the body, mind and environment connection is so important and how the environment connection gets shut down with trauma and is often overlooked in Western spiritual practices
  • Some awesome resources to get empowered and take responsibility for not only your own healing but the healing of the planet

WARNING: this episode is on the longer side @ 58 minutes and it’s jam packed with super valuable info on all things nervous system.

So grab your pen and notepad and cup of tea or kombucha, cozy up (or alternatively watch while you do dishes or fold the laundry 😉 and ENJOY.
