Nerve Tour: 2023-2024

with Gil Hedley

Gil is embarking on a one of a kind, 111-city tour of the United States and Canada to share his uniquely uplifting and informative presentation: “The Nerve Project: Exploring the Nerve Tree in Relationship.”

This interactive presentation visually reveals Gil’s current findings from the anatomy lab, after spending the first five months of 2023 at the Institute for Anatomical Research in Colorado Springs, CO, meticulously dissecting a beloved donor form to reveal the integral and extraordinary nature of the nervous tissues.

Simply put, nothing has been done quite like this before, and Gil is very excited to share this with you.

Gil has worked for the past 30 years in the dissection lab, and this is the first dissection of its kind to be documented in images and video from the characteristically integral perspective for which Gil is best known.

"Wow. What an honor to take part, to commune with others around the beauty, metaphor, messages, magic, and intricacies within the nerve tree; the profound reverence, candid offerings, brilliant gleanings brought forward through the collective efforts of all involved in the project.  

I am changed by taking in this revelatory offering (wept tears of joyous truth for most of the evening, and continue to off and on today!!!), and am excited that you are bringing it to so many people by the "old fashioned" way of touring. May the journey be full of love and inspiration, and thank you thank you thank you." 

~ Kiki, Santa Fe

"Just to mention one specific a-ha moment from the Tour (there were many); I "knew" that, for example, the vagus nerve could be stimulated via the senses as it "lies near those nerves" ie my general understanding. HOWEVER, to SEE how these nerves piggy-back and intertwine, was a completely different understanding - AND FEELING. Now I can visualize this every time I practice my vagus nerve stimulations. Thankful to be there in person and that Gil shared - if you will - internal journeys for us to partake in, as well as loving remarks and memories regarding the people he has worked with. Thank you both for your work, and your somanauts!"

"What a ride!!! I laughed, I cried. I am still landing. I left enriched...heart, mind...whole body. It's an experience that will forever be with me. I would do it all over again and again, and continue to get more out of it - I'm certain. Can't thank you enough Gil, Rachel and to all who had a part in making this happen!"

"If you need to feel a deeper connection to your somatic practices, or simply to marvel at the wonder that is the human body please make attending this event a priority. Gil Hedley shows the landscape of the physical body with meticulous detail and humble appreciation of what is known and unknown about the wonder that is individual life. This educational opportunity borders on the sublime, and makes delightful incursions into the mystery that is your very self. Please let me reiterate, make attendance a priority and be prepared to see mystery manifest." 

~ Andrew, Fort Collins

What Will I Learn?

Syllabus here.

In this 5 hour live talk, Gil will share his latest research and discoveries from his incredible five month journey dissecting the nerve tree. Through visual presentation, lecture, stories, guided embodiment exercises and Q & A, Gil will demonstrate the details of both the central, autonomic and peripheral nervous tissues.

This exploration will include a deep dive into the autonomic plexuses, the entire sympathetic trunk with ganglia, the full course of the vagus nerve, the role of lymphatics, and the main plexuses of the musculoskeletal system (cervical, brachial, lumbar and sacral) ~ all from the perspective of Gil’s integral anatomy approach to the human form, and demonstrated visually from his meticulous laboratory preparations.

Gil will also share details of the structure of the brain and their key relationships, including the ventricles, pineal and pituitary gland, gyri and sulci, cerebellum, cortex, and vasculature.

By the end of this talk, participants will be able to:

  • Describe and detail the relationships, key landmarks, and structures of the brain, including the vasculature, cerebellum, limbic system, cortex, gyri, sulci, ventricles, optic chiasma, brain stem, pineal and pituitary glands, 
  • Identify the relationships and structures of the primary musculoskeletal plexuses, including the cervical plexus, brachial plexus, lumbar plexus, and sacral plexus, 
  • Trace the journey of the median, ulnar, musculocutaneous, and radial nerves on one’s own body,
  • Describe anterior cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome (ACNES) and its relationship to chronic abdominal wall pain (CAWP),
  • Describe the integral relationship of the nervous system with the fasciae, lymphatics, and adipose tissues, 
  • Describe the course of the right and left vagus nerve from its origin in the cranium to its proposed terminus in the superior mesenteric plexus, 
  • Demonstrate the location of the autonomic plexuses on one’s own body (esophageal, pulmonary, cardiac, solar, celiac/gastric, superior mesenteric, and inferior mesenteric),
  • In one’s own words, describe how one’s perception of the role and import of the nervous system has evolved or shifted through the presentation.
