This was a really interesting.
I tried TRE's a few years ago, but I got a negative reaction and stopped shortly after. I never tried it across the timescales he was talking (3 years to fully let go of tension in the body from an extremely stressed state?).
His analogy of the self-driving car was great too, more than just having brakes and accelerators being pressed too hard or in conjunction, the sensors also become too sensitive, and the parallels between energy work and systems of the body being connected to mental states.
Never realized the Vagus Nerve was orientated that way either, after hearing lots about how Vagal Stimulation can be used to help relax. I feel with Vipassana mediation I become aware of unconscious tension and let it go consciously, but probably not the degree tremoring would allow. I've also realized having quiet time to oneself is huge in this day and age, just to have some basic self-reflection and self-soothing take place away from all the input we're subject to. Isolation doesn't help this equation much at all either.
I hope you don't mind my comment. I'll remove it if you want!
