Our nervous system is responsible for how we take in and respond to the world around us. In times of stress and uncertainty, our nervous system is working in overdrive to help us make sense of information and attempt to keep us safe. This can be particularly true for queer and trans communities that experience higher rates of trauma. In this webinar, you’ll learn how our nervous system works and ways to tune into what our bodies and minds are telling us. With a trauma informed lens, we’ll also be exploring strategies for healing, connecting and deepening compassion for the ways that our nervous system is responding to our world.
