This video does three things:
1) explains how the body responds to stress, great challenges, and change, and how to move through it
2) It offers help to the survivors in Lahaina, Maui who have suffered great loss, and how the Hawaiians (and other cultures) have everything they need to navigate these times embedded within their culture.
3) And a platform to bring awareness to the world of how they can help Maui Heal by offering support through ‘Help Maui Rise.’ This and other links are found in the Link Tree below.
The viewer may be interested in either part 1 or part 2. To get the maximum benefit, please watch the entire video as Dr. Porges’s explanation of ‘Neuroception’ and how the body responds to stress is a precursor to getting the most out of the second part. (Time Codes Below)
We wanted to thank Dr Stephen Porges for volunteering his time and his heartfelt intention to try to do anything he can to help people suffering in Lahaina, Maui.
