The Vagus Nerve: Its Relationship to Chronic Illness, the Gut-Brain Connection, and Trauma- a Free Workshop with Bonnie Thompson
What is the vagus nerve and why should we care about it? According to Polyvagal Theory, the vagus nerve is central to how we function in the world on many levels and dysfunction can wreak havoc on our health and relationships. Bonnie Thompson will be sharing about her own journey in learning about the vagus nerve and understanding the role it plays in chronic illness and unexplained symptoms. She’ll be drawing from the work of well-known experts, her personal experience, and her work with clients to share information and simple exercises that can support healthy vagus function.
