A Five-Element Perspective for a Future of Healing the Spirit and Balancing the Autonomic Nervous System

We're delighted to introduce you to an extraordinary opportunity – a 6-session hybrid workshop series that's a blend of a book club and a workshop, guided by the talented Nicole Keane, MS LMT (OR# 23651), an author, illustrator, and healthcare professional.

Once a month, we'll come together to dive deep into the details of each elemental chapter. Our discussions will be a space for sharing personal stories and clinical experiences, fostering an atmosphere of openness where everyone is encouraged to contribute and create a sense of community. Through these conversations, our aim is to provide you with a clearer grasp of the book's content. We'll unravel treatment theories and delve into the mechanics of the intended paradigm shift, all while exploring the fascinating world of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS).

It's important to note that our gatherings are designed to be engaging and enriching, but are not intended as therapy sessions for significant traumatic events. Instead, they're crafted to help you comprehend how your body processes the rhythm and events of life on a physical level. This understanding will empower you to nurture resilience within yourself, enabling you to engage more fully with your surroundings and relationships.


The Tao of the Polyvagal Theory:



All Workshops will be held at the Moon Mountain Highway shop in Bingen, WA. We're all about making things convenient for you. Choose the way that suits you best: You can join us in person for a vibrant and interactive session, soak up the energy of live virtual attendance, or catch up later with the recording. Your schedule, your pace – we're here to accommodate your preferences! Whether it's connecting face-to-face, participating online in real-time, or enjoying the content at your leisure, we've got you covered. Your learning journey, your way!

We're thrilled to lead you on this insightful journey. Across six 2-hour sessions, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on select Tuesdays and Wednesdays, we'll connect and learn together. And for those who can't join live, don't worry – we've got you covered with session recordings. We're offering a limited number of in-person and online spots for those outside the local Gorge area. If you're in Portland, we encourage you to join us in person!

Our doors will open at 5:40 PM, inviting you to enjoy light snacks and refreshments (feel free to bring something to share!). We'll conclude promptly by 8:30 PM.
