RESTORE

A monthly membership to help you release stored trauma,
rewire your brain, and step into soulful rest

Be Your Own Medicine

The research is in, and now we know that nervous system dysfunction can play a significant role in chronic systemic illnesses like Lyme, CFS/ME, POTS, MCAS, and MCS, as well as mental health challenges like anxiety disorders and depression. 

Releasing stored trauma and re-patterning the nervous system brings the body back into homeostasis where anxiety and depression can abate and the body can fight infection, heal the gut, balance hormones, and repair at a cellular level. 

Restore Offers

a blend of somatic, cognitive, and spiritual practices and education to help you take a holistic approach to releasing stored trauma, rewiring your brain, and stepping into soulful rest:

SOMATIC

◊ Learn to signal safety to your limbic system via its language of sensation

◊ Reset your vagus nerve to move your nervous system toward regulation

◊ Engage gentle movements to regulate your nervous system in its varying states of sympathetic activation, freeze, and dorsal vagal shutdown

◊ Break up tension patterns to introduce relaxation and regulation to the nervous system

COGNITIVE

 ◊ Engage new ways of thinking about yourself, your body, your relationships and your life

 ◊ Practice imaginative visualizations to signal safety to your survival brain, so your body can release stored trauma

 ◊ Process grief and anger productively, in small doses that keep you inside your Window of Tolerance

 ◊ Tend to shame, bringing the story of your inherent value into your body

SPIRITUAL

 ◊ Engage imaginative spiritual practices, like Ignatian Prayer and Lectio Divina, to open yourself to the healing power of God and train your nervous system to rest

This piece is for those who want to more explicitly involve their faith in their retraining. The folder entitled "Spiritual Formation” is devoted to spiritual practices

Like many of you, I spent years in bed, ravaged by chronic invisible illness and trauma, searching for elusive diagnoses and exhausting treatment options to help with both symptoms of illness and PTSD.   

Doctors threw lots of labels at me during those years: CFS/ME, CIRS, Lyme, dysautonomia, MCS, MCAS, anxiety, depression and more, but none of the corresponding treatments helped in the long term, with many treatments making me much sicker.  

Just when I was close to giving up hope, I began to find answers. I learned that an unhealthy nervous system is often at the root of both chronic invisible illness and mental health challenges like anxiety and depression, and I began a journey of rewiring my limbic system.  

With time and focused rewiring, I began to heal from systemic illness and watched my mental health drastically improve. I started to get my life back.  

But I quickly noted the deficits of limbic system retraining programs that focus almost entirely on top-down (cognitive) rewiring practices, so I spent years building healing practices that were more holistic. I took courses, completed trainings, and drew on my PhD program research in spiritual formation to integrate somatic, cognitive, and spiritual modalities. The result was more healing.  

I'm so grateful to be able to share Restore, a toolkit membership full of the resources I have used to get my life back.   My hope is it can be a daily companion to you, helping you daily develop friendship with your body as you gently release stored trauma and rewire your brain.

"Sarah’s understanding of the many different layers of nervous system healing — along with her thoughtfulness and creativity in how to blend them — is truly unparalleled. Restore has not only been an invaluable, impactful, and easy to incorporate program to be a part of, but feels like steady support on the winding journey."

4. Access to Group Coaching Add-ons

All members of Restore will have the option of purchasing group coaching classes for support with brain rewiring, grief recovery, trauma recovery, and chronic illness recovery. Classes meet weekly for an hour for 10 to 12 weeks total. Classes close at a 25-person enrollment.

"Sarah Jackson’s Restore is like a breath of fresh air. If you want to foster a relationship full of compassion, respect and love with all parts of yourself - mind, body and spirit - you will probably love Restore as much as I do. Using her sharp mind and a gentle touch, Sarah brings together elements of brain retraining, somatic work and polyvagal theory to create a blended approach that is simultaneously gentle and rigorous. I feel like Sarah is exactly the kind of companion and guide I’ve been looking for on this journey of recovery and self-discovery. Thank you, Sarah!"

What's in the Restore Video Library? 

Here's an overview of the content folders in the video library. *Folders are growing regularly as new content is added*

 

I. SYMPATHETIC ACTIVATION

Somatic practices to help you regulate your nervous system by releasing the survival energy generated by the body in a mobilizing state of sympathetic activation, also called fight-or-flight. 

 

II. DORSAL VAGAL SHUTDOWN AND FREEZE

Somatic practices to help you gently wake up and mobilize the nervous system in either of the two states of immobilization: freeze or dorsal vagal shutdown.

 

 III. FROM HEAD TO TOE

Somatic practice to help you break up tension patterns in the body, interrupt pain patterns, reset the vagus nerve, and release stored trauma. 

 

IV. MONTHLY CLASS RECORDINGS

Each month, I upload our class recordings to the Restore library so you have daily access to them.

 

V. TRAUMA EDUCATION

A. ATTUNEMENT

Nervous system work requires a relational container of love and safety; and yet, when we engage this work, we often do so from a place of desperation, disconnection from the self, and frustration with the body. Self-attunement is the practice by which we create a container of love for the body, learn to identify its survival states, and learn to use healing resources from a place of compassion instead of fear and desperation. 

B. SENSORY SKILLS

Cultivate essential sensory skills to help you continue the process of attunement and ultimately manage, and eliminate, symptoms.

C. GRIEF, CORE BELIEFS, AND RESISTANCE

Begin to process grief and anger while staying in your Window of Tolerance, and identify and tend to the wounds and accompanying core beliefs that perpetuate limbic system impairment and create resistance to healing.

D. BOUNDARIES & RELATIONSHIPS

Continue to create environmental safety for your nervous system by exploring a practice of setting boundaries, starting with an embodied foundation of trust between the thinking and survival brain.

 

VI. LIMBIC SYSTEM RETRAINING SUPPORT 

A. FOUNDATIONS

Begin exploring the integration of top-down and bottom-up resources, improve and understand your visualizations, create more effective daily rhythms of rewiring, and generate visualization ideas when you’re feeling stuck. 

B. GUIDED MEDITATIONS

Come along with me on my memory and future visualizations. 

VII. SPIRITUAL FORMATION

Engage imaginative Christian spiritual practices, like Lectio Divina and Ignatian Prayer, that form the soul and rewire the brain.  

 

VIII. Q&A

Submit your questions for me under the "Questions for Sarah" thread in the forum, and I'll choose some throughout the month and upload my answers in video form. 

 

*Some folders are incomplete as subscription content is still being uploaded from month to month.

Restore Testimonial

Restore has been a lifeline during the healing process, and doing somatic therapy has been something I look forward to every day. It is the calmest, most grounded part of my day. Before joining the membership, my body wasn’t responding to the neural retraining program I was in. I needed a bridge to signal safety to my nervous system, and now neural retraining is so much easier. Now I use them both, and it’s a game changer. Well worth every penny to feel myself again.

-Jonathan

Restore Testimonial

I’ve been on a long journey to find healing in both childhood and adult trauma. As a result my weight has fluctuated greatly throughout my life. I’m now a dietitian, but my weight increased steadily over the last 8 years from a healthy to an unhealthy range. I’ve tried all the healthy ways to lose weight with no results. A wonderful friend led me to Restore and the very first time I did the somatic practice class I lost 3 pounds in one week and felt competent for the first time in my life! I now have the monthly pass [through Restore] and my goal this year is to be consistent with my somatic practice and study the connection between trauma/ emotional health and weight. I can’t thank you enough for the resources you have given! 

-Cahlan

Restore Testimonial

Restore has given me emotional stability that I never thought possible.  Having grown up in an alcoholic family with decades of stress, chaos, people pleasing, and many compulsive behaviors, I have white knuckled my way through life.  I've survived.  Or so I thought.  These classes have helped me understand my mind, my body, my survival brain.  I didn't even know rewiring was possible.   I have such hope now.  I feel stronger every day.

-Paula

"I can’t begin to tell you how important these tools have been in my healing. After experiencing a long plateau, they were the missing piece of the puzzle. They helped me turn the corner to begin functioning again. Thank you for sharing your work with us!"

How do I know if Restore is for me?

Restore is for you if any of the following are true:

  • You want to gently tend to stress or trauma at a bodily level
  • You want to re-pattern your nervous system, bringing it out of survival mode to create a baseline of regulation  
  • You are doing a limbic system retraining program and want to fill in the gaps of your program to take a more holistic approach   
  • You are new to nervous system work, feel overwhelmed by all available options, and want a single hub to explore and integrate holistic modalities for healing the nervous system 

"In January, I came down with COVID. This triggered some intense nervous system dysregulation and resurfaced some old trauma. I tried out the April trauma release class and felt such a sense of calm I subsequently joined Restore. I have been slowly working through all the course material. A couple of weeks ago, I began having some panic episodes that were incredibly profound in the morning with heart-pounding and racing. So, I would work through a past class from the Restore library each morning. Immediately upon finishing each class, my heart rate would be regulated for the remainder of the day. Thankfully, after two weeks of morning classes, I am no longer experiencing these symptoms and feel regulated and resourced enough to mother my children and engage in life as I want. I'm so thankful for the gift of nervous system regulation and the coaching videos available in Restore to help get me there. It has made all the difference in my life. THANK YOU!"
