The Nervous System is often presented as the director, or the system that manages all the other systems of the body. Instead of this idea, we will approach the Nervous System as a body system that emerges in our embryological development to support the amazingly complex communication that is already happening in our cells and tissues.

As we develop, the Nervous System continues to facilitate communication within our body, as well as learning the strategies and movements that help us survive in our external environment. These habits and patterns ultimately reflect our context, and the subjectivity of our perceptual interpretations. 

In this workshop we’ll explore the embryology of our nervous system, and how our earliest experiences shape the patterns of perception that create each of our stories about safety, comfort, and our sense of our selves in the world.
