Calm, Resilient, and Wild: Unlock the Secrets of Your Nervous System – Online
with Dr. Alice Kerby, DPT, SEP, Resiliency Coach
September 18 - 19, 2021
Join Dr. Alice Kerby for an exploration of your nervous system. In this two-day experience, you will learn practical skills to stop racing thoughts, feel more present in your body, and begin to trust your innate wisdom. This program includes gentle movement and creative expression, guided practices to restore your system to a place of calm, and practical information to satisfy your intelligent cognitive mind. You will leave with a greater understanding of how to pause before responding, listen to your gut, and be assertive in a healthy way.
Dr. Kerby uses Somatic Experiencing techniques to cultivate a safe and creative container for your internal adventure. Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a “bottom up” modality, created by Dr. Peter Levine, author of Waking the Tiger, that works with healing deeper levels of trauma and chronic stress on a physiological and subconscious level. This workshop will provide an introduction to somatic techniques that will leave you feeling calmer and more connected to your body, yet energized, grounded, and awake.
This workshop will include gentle movement and guided practices to calm the nervous system and connect you to your body, foundational information about how your nervous system works and stores both trauma and stress, animal imagery, and guidance on how to connect to the “wild” part of yourself in an exploration of healthy assertion and boundaries.
Live sessions with Dr. Kerby on Saturday at 10 am–12 pm and 2–3:30 pm and Sunday 10 am–12 pm ET.
You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until November 14.
In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET, recorded Ashram meditations, and inspiring talks with Sri Swami Satchidananda. You will also have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.

I just had the pleasure of (virtually) attending your workshop at the recent WFS conference; the information you presented regarding ways to calm all facets of the nervous system was incredibly helpful, and the exercises were effective and impactful. Thank you so much! — Erin S.
I felt incredibly supported by you! Even though I’m halfway across the world. I wanted to write something here that was quite amazing, but, the bottom line is, I felt so supported by you. — Angela Kelly
