Warriors at Ease Level 2 Training (In-Person)

The Level 2 Training is an in-person group learning experience for Warriors at Ease Level 1 Trained Teachers to learn and incorporate the WAE evidence-based Techniques and trauma-informed Protocols into their unique personal teaching style. In-depth lectures for practical application and current research on the neuroscience of the human stress response, moral injury, heart rate variability, and the polyvagal theory. Practical application labs include protocols for traumatic brain injury, prophetic limbs/joints, and the use of adaptations, modifications, and options.

Upon the successful completion of this in-person Level 2 Training and subsequent competency-based assignments, trainees are eligible to apply to become Certified Warriors at Ease Teachers (WAETs). 

This therapeutic approach is designed to facilitate rapid homeostasis (balance) across all systems effectively managing the bodily responses to stress, give students the tools to self-regulate the nervous system, in turn making the “Window of Tolerance” more accessible. 

The WAE Protocols are; Preparation, Integration & Restoration. By integrating the Warriors at Ease Techniques into the WAE Protocols the practice is taught in a simple to complex fashion with neuroception being introduced from the macro to the micro. The goal is to create resilience through post-traumatic growth; raising the threshold of typical “stress response” in addition to promoting parasympathetic vagaltone more rapidly in response to stress.
