About This Show
The Body Awake is a podcast for people interested in health and the human body, and in having a conversation beyond the body as merely a machine.
It's about what we're made of, how we move, how illness, injury and healing happen, and what we can do with that information to live better lives.

The Vagus Nerves and the Social Nervous System with Stanley Rosenberg — ep 37
7 days ago
I was quite excited when Stanley agreed to this interview. His book on the autonomic nervous system — including but not limited to the vagus nerve — includes detailed anatomy and self-help exercises and was easily the best $20 I've spent in a long time. I loved it. Here, I ask Stanley questions about the notion of our "social nervous system," and some detail around his self-help exercises which can be, if they work for you, an astoundingly simple way to reorient your basic sense of orientation and safety. (And, if you go lightly and pay attention, as with anything, are probably at least worth a try.)
