Breathing: Just for fun let's all turn on our mics and do 4 rounds of VOO HUM breathing.
Journaling Reflection Exercise — we're going to start with a fun creative journaling prompt. I'd like you to imagine that your nervous system could speak and imagine for a moment that your nervous system was reflecting on it's experience over the last few weeks. What might it say? What would it love for you to remember? What else hasn't it shared with you? Begin the letter with Dear - write your name - this is your nervous system and I'm here to tell you... I'd like you to write for 5 minutes in a stream of consciousness. It doesn't matter if it feels silly or bad, just write the first thing that comes to mind.
Reflect as a group - 5-10 mins
Breakout rooms—you'll be in groups of 3, take 5 minutes each to share what over the past 5 weeks has resonated most deeply and second, what your primary intention is moving forward for the next 8 weeks? So you'll have 5 minutes each — 15 minutes in total – to share what has resonated most deeply and second what is your primary intention or desire moving forwards for the next couple of months?
Reflect as a group
Open Sharing—what have been some unexpected highlights that you've experienced in the past 5 weeks which you might not have anticipated when signing up? And related to that what questions are still alive for you that you'll be carrying into the next 8 weeks? Pop-corn style
My personal reflection: this surfaced in the Q&A last week and was a point shared by Jan that the real aim of NSM is to increase our interoception and breath-awareness during LIFE as well as during an intentional practice.
Any final questions or reflections before we close?
Thank you: thank you for showing up with the enthusiasm and energy that you have as well as your patience with less-than-polished content.
Feedback: I'll be sharing a Typeform later this week asking for feedback, but in the meantime if you have insights or ideas for how to make v2 of this course more impactful please please do share via email or Discord—this feedback is extremely valuable to me and I can't make the next version of NSM any better without your help.

Just for fun—Let's close with 3 full inhales together and then everyone unmute and say FAREWELL NERVOUS SYSTEM NINJAS!
