Your experiences

Have you experienced a feeling in your body that felt like you wanted to run? Or have you had so much energy in your body that you felt a little shaky? Or have you felt a feeling in your body of complete calm, a stillness that comes from within?

Sensations such as those mentioned above and other similar sensations come from your nervous system.  The nervous system integrates with perception and neuroception through the functions of the Central Nervous System (CNS), the Peripheral Nervous System (the PNS) and the vagus system (a system of nerves).  We will explore these functions more deeply in this element.
