Feeling wound up, anxious or stressed? This practice is designed to help you get out of sympathetic nervous system dominance while moving towards parasympathetic dominance. We use scientifically tested techniques to stimulate the vagus nerve which is responsible for parasympathetic innervation. Our dharma is inspired by Krishna so we use a mantra that is used to invoke him and explore an illusion. We target the illusion that arises when we logically know a stressful situation is over body our body doesn't. When that stress, fear, panic, or anxiety is stuck in us even when the situation is resolved. Let's try to move it along.
The mantra for today is...
