The Course

MODULE 1 : Cause and Effect
Understand the root causes and systemic effects of anxiety and stress in our modern world.

MODULE 2 : Understanding Your Nervous System
Our nervous system is the central operator of our body. Its state and function play a vital role in every aspect of our lives, especially our wellbeing. The shift starts here.

MODULE 3 : The Seven Principles
Look deeply into any field and you’ll discover there are certain fundamental elements that serve to uphold its integrity or otherwise.  

Here we will explore integral pieces in the puzzle of balanced living:
- Remove Interference: there are some things that ignite our potential and others that interfere. Identifying them is the key.
- Meditation: understanding the nature and mechanics of meditation.
- Healthy Routine: learn the basic elements we should incorporate into the landscape of our everyday lives.
- Herbal Support: the power of adaptogenic plants to support our wellbeing.
- Self-Regulation: in a fluctuating world it’s vital to learn to master the art of regulating your emotions.
- Cultivate Your Mind: the mind is a field of tremendous possibility, be sure to cultivate it wisely.

MODULE 4: Practices
While we need the knowledge to sharpen our intellectual understanding, we also need authentic practices that generate a distinct psychophysiological change to support our movement towards becoming unshakeable. Here we have included videos including breathwork sessions, mindfulness techniques and yoga classes.

MODULE 5 : Mind Fables
An animated exploration of several fables that reveal compelling teachings on the nature of the human mind.

MODULE 6 : Rise Conversations

In these conversations, Soma’s Gary Gorrow and Peter Ostick take a candid look at the real-life experiences of anxiety. 

With 20 years of experience building companies in the media and technology sector, Peter struggled for many years with stress and crippling anxiety. Through engaging in the RISE process he was able to fortify himself from within and gain freedom from this anxiety. Together they reveal useful insights and real-life examples of how to apply this knowledge to your own situation. 

In this module we also learn about Gary’s personal story and how that journey led him to Soma.

MODULE  7 : Choose to RISE
The power of the mind is undeniable. This module explores the workings of our awareness and how each person, either consciously or unconsciously, determines how they are going to experience the world.


“The program gave me the tools to work on myself in a really deep way. It tackled the difficult topic of anxiety with sensitivity, support and practical tools. Absolutely helpful.”
