Save my seat

Does this sound like the program for you?

When you graduate you'll:

  • Experience true freedom from nervous system dysregulation and all the painful side effects that it causes.
  • You'll be in the driver's seat of your own nervous system rather than feeling powerless and helpless to anxiety, freeze and shutdown. You'll know how to get unstuck. 
  • You'll be able to understand the language of your body, giving you greater agency and autonomy in making decisions.
  • You'll learn to create a change in the set-point of your nervous system that will improve your emotional and physical health. 
  • You'll graduate with a tool box of exercises and feel confident in using resources that shift you out of survival mode for the long-term. This also improves your personal and professional relationships and better equips you for dealing with adversities.

Jessica Maguire

 

Jessica Maguire holds a Bachelor of Health Science degree and a Master of Physiotherapy. Her post-graduate study includes the fields of neuroscience, neuroplasticity, brain-heart biofeedback, brain-body medicine and transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation.

As a TEDx speaker and lecturer, she believes that knowledge is power. Jessica teaches a long-term, sustainable, profoundly transformative methodology of nervous system repair, empowering students to step into the driver’s seat of their own health and wellbeing.

Her aim is to create true freedom from nervous system dysregulation and all the painful side effects that it causes.

"I wanted to reach out and share how transformative your course has been for me and my family. My youngest son is adopted and he had a traumatic birth that negatively impacted most of his internal organs. He's almost two and doing great, he seems to have some sensory differences and recently had a complex febrile seizure.
 
The techniques I learned in your course helped me get through the traumatic first seizure but I also taught my son resources and practices he does when he's feeling overwhelmed and over stimulated. It's incredible to see a kiddo that is just learning to communicate, be able to recognize the profound benefits of a simple technique. I own a pet care company and we're even applying some of these ideas with the dogs. Thank you for everything you do. You're helping so many individuals."

Here's what you'll learn

Week 1

Onboarding 

 

You'll begin the program by getting to know your community with a Live Peer-to-Peer Call. The community will play a big role in your active learning journey right throughout the 8 weeks.

Right from the start you'll earn a variety of self-regulation skills to use in "the heat of the moment" that keep your nervous system regulated so that much less energy is required to manage your moods and emotions. There will be fresh, new techniques each week. 

You'll also receive access to the 2.5 hour Vagus Nerve Masterclass to give you foundational knowledge before we dive into the core modules of the program.

 

Week 2

Autonomic Awareness

 

Learn about the powerful role that a balanced nervous system plays in your overall health. You'll use frameworks that help you understand the emotions, sensations, thoughts and behaviours of each state. By working with the vagus nerve, you can build capacity and maintain equilibrium in the face of stress or trauma.

The vagus nerve is the epicenter of the mind-body connection, crucial to your emotional health, the regulation of their organs and body systems, and your relational health, influencing personal and professional relationships. Our aim is to support you in building a partnership between you and your body, creating interoceptive accuracy and making room for a bioplasticity reset.

WEEK 3

Proprioception & Kinaesthesis

 

Your body will tell you what previous adversity and trauma needs to be retraced and resolved. We will dive deep into proprioception, posture, and fascia, along with the use of movement in nervous system regulation. 

When you discharge the energy and hormones mobilised with the stress stored in your body, you bring your nervous system back into balance. Although some habits can soothe your feeling of distress for the short term, it’s not until you complete the stress activation cycles from the past it leads to true recovery and regulation.

 

 

 

 

 

WEEK 4

Interoception

 

Often called the "eighth sense", interoception refers to the perception of sensations within the body. This practice of "tuning in" to feelings and sensations, instead of suppressing or dissociating via different coping mechanisms, is foundational to good nervous system health. Interoception is largely carried out by the vagus nerve and determines how we feel internally, the health of our organs, as well as our sense of self and agency.

WEEK 5

The Gut-Brain Axis

 

Featuring the latest research on how the microbiota influences the brain, nervous, and immune systems and identifying what foods can be used as psychobiotics— beneficial bacteria (probiotics) or support for bacteria (prebiotics) that influence gut-brain relationships.

You’ll learn all about the enteric nervous system, and will receive access to somatic resources to support you in regulation. You'll also receive recipes to support yourself in maintaining a healthy nervous system.

 

 

 

 

 

WEEK 6

The Heart-Brain Axis

 

Learn all about the heart-brain axis and the importance of a healthy "vagal brake" for a flexible, adaptable and resilient nervous system.

You'll learn how you can create a bioplasticity reset and why medically unexplained symptoms may have a common root as a stress-related disorder. Treating the root cause rather than simply treating symptoms can improve chronic pain, gut disorders and inflammation.

We’ll look deeper into the techniques of the cardiovascular system that science shows to build vagal efficiency. You’ll also learn more about the importance of posture, positioning and blood pressure.

WEEK 7

The Social Engagement System

 

Your social engagement system is formed by the branch of your vagus nerve that connects your heart to the muscles of your face. This system explains why your nervous system is powerfully influenced by the people you surround yourself with.

Reciprocity can be used as a neural exercise to help reshape the nervous system. The back and forth of communication, as well as the giving and receiving of care builds attunement and resonance. We will dive deeper into the importance of co-regulation in this module. You will also learn about how the voice, music and play connect to the nervous system state.

Week 8

Integration

During the integration week, we will have our final Peer-to-Peer Live Calls with the community. Integration week is a chance to bring together everything you've learned from the program and then apply it to your real life. You'll be using active learning with members of your community. You'll learn how to set up your weekly routine, how to use different resources in challenging situations. You'll have a whole tool-box of resources to lean on, equipping you with agency and autonomy for meeting life's challenges.

We Encourage Active Learning

 

All of the leading research into neuroplasticity shows that the most effective way to make lasting changes is to learn in a way that's embodied, experiential, and a little bit challenging.

The Vagus Nerve Program is not simply a series of lectures for you to watch. It's a complete framework that enables you to rewire your nervous system from the inside out. 

This program will challenge you, and we invite you to embrace the discomfort that comes with that. Provided it's not acute, this space of discomfort when doing new things is where the real growth happens.
