The enteric nervous system is the intrinsic neurological network of the gastrointestinal tract – extending all the way from the esophagus down to the rectum. The enteric nervous system is often called the ‘second brain’ because it can actually override instructions from the brain in your skull. Even though the enteric nervous system contains more neurons than the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems combined, trauma models often scarcely mention it. This is extremely unfortunate because an optimally functioning ‘second brain’ is pivotal to breaking vicious cycles of trauma reenactment. It is often a ‘gut feeling’ that provides the inspiration to take appropriate risks, to break away from the status quo, to change one’s life for the better. This workshop introduces the fundamental nature of the enteric nervous system, its role in trauma reenactment, as well as practical exercises to make the ‘gut brain’ an invaluable resource in breaking trauma cycles – in truly providing The Guts to Stand Up For Yourself.
Lee Cartwright, M.A., a Southwestern College alum, developed Shifting Consciousness through Dimensions (SCtD), a neurological system for transforming trauma and personal limitations. He has written three books on SCtD: The Qi to Unlocking Trauma, Neurological Approaches to Dream Work and Art Therapy, and The Body Evolving Spirit.
DVDs of Lee’s previous presentation on Mending Broken Hearts will be available at the conference.
