Gut Wisdom: Accessing the Power of the Enteric Nervous System


The core body isn’t just a physical structure: our gut has a mind of its own. It’s highly intelligent, and can act independently of the brain and nervous systems. It regulates immunity, inflammation, and emotional health. It also contains a microbiome of incredible sophistication.

In this Masterclass, you’ll learn:

  • what the enteric nervous system is and why it’s so important for our health
  • what gut microbes do and how they communicate
  • how gut inflammation impacts physical and emotional health
  • practical tools for yoga, fitness, contemplative practice, and eating


And we’ll examine this information in light of our self-to-body relationship and the social context of gut health.

Participants will understand the psychology, immunology, and social context of the enteric nervous system, and be able to discuss how nourishing this system improves well-being.
