Mastering your Internal System

4/18/2024
We might think our "head" is in charge. However, have you ever found body having a reaction before your head has even had time to "think" about what's going on? What if, rather than our head being in charge, we were a complex system, or a network of complex systems, of which our head was only a small part? And that our head wasn't in charge? What might this make possible? In this episode, Stephen talks about the importance of our Autonomic Nervous System and how we've spent years conditioning it to respond automatically given certain circumstances.
