Give your nervous system the TLC it needs and deserves. 

Overwhelmed, Exhausted and Ready For A Reset?

You're exhausted and overwhelmed, but you're still trying your very best to do all the right things for your body and wellness journey. And each new year brings with it temptations of fad diets, new workout plans and resolutions that just never seem to work.

You want change. We get it

But here's the dirty little secret: before you can even contemplate making sustainable changes in your life, you need to begin with a healthy, regulated nervous system.

And that's why we've put together this full weekend of workshops. 

We've all learned the hard way that while a little Netflix and wine is all well and good, it's not a very effective (or sustainable) way to wind down. Likewise, those Instragram biohacks and quick-fix pills promising to sooth your anxieties and dysregulation only succeed at separating you from your time and money.

Instead, what you need is a nervous system RESET.

Are You Ready To Feel Better?

Join our collection of experts during this dynamic collection of all-workshop presentations that will help you better understand how your nervous system works, what you can do to nourish and nurture it, and provide tools you can use to down-regulate.

Here’s what people are saying about the summit



I loved the summit! There was so many great talks and it was very informative. Loved the wide variety of speakers too.

Kaylie , Miss

a Mind-Body Recalibration

a well-put together mix of practitioners and facilitators on the program. I like the simplicity of both the physical and mental/emotional approaches as well as the education to understand the nervous system better.

The guidance by the facilitators to go gentle with yourself and options offered for different levels of capability are kindly received. I super loved the shoulder session - wow! It's surprising how powerful something so simple can be. So loved it. I'd certainly like to redo the nervous system hypno session and others as well. The way my body responded went very deep and as much as I wanted to go through them all, I needed taking some time to process the experience between some sessions. I'm not sure the world would be ready for me if I did all of them in a row! I'm not sure I am ready for me however the summit is certainly worth the time.

Simone Jo Moore , HumanisingIT

Amazing hub of resources

Loved having a wide range of enlightening sessions available at the click of a button. Especially enjoyed Megan Cooper's session. MAPS is a great concept and resource.

Caz Houghton , Yoga Teacher/EFT Practitioner

Exceeded all expectations!

I am a bit of a "summit junkie", I admit, so I have participated in MANY similar 3-5 days educational experiences, BUT...the MAPS Modern Wellness summit far exceeded my expectations! The presenters were amazing in how they succinctly and generously shared their areas of expertise, and left me with actionable tools I could implement into my life right away. THANK YOU!

Carrie Crossman , educator

Excellent Modern Wellness Summit 2023

I was absolutely blown away by the quantity and the QUALITY of all of the presentations involved in this years MAPS Modern Wellness summit about resetting your nervous system. It was so clear that these had been curated and cultivated from people who have amassed a wealth of knowledge, techniques, and teaching/communication abilities throughout their lives and careers. I made some huge discoveries (and connected some dots that had been floating around for years) following the summit over the three days of FREE courses. I knew I wouldn't be able to get to everything, but covered a surprising amount of ground and felt like every second of my time was put to great use. The ability to pick and choose AND to watch in our own time was also unexpectedly fantastic and still created a sense of connection with the instructors.
Thank you for an illuminating three days - I look forward to staying connected to the MAPS Institute community and engaging in many more workshops and resources in the future.

Chef Lalo

Founder of Vegan Cooking Mastery

I was born in Mexico City. My culinary journey started very young, when I began cooking home meals to help out my mom. I’ve always loved eating but my mom was never a good cook. She was a single mother with 3 of us who worked night shifts and barely had time to sleep, let alone cook. When she did cook, it was always simple, fast meals. From her I learned the basics of Mexican cuisine: rice, beans, pasta soups, and spicy sauce. The more I cooked the more I found I enjoyed it—experimenting and mixing spices and ingredients to see what happened. Every now and then my grandma would come to visit and she would always teach me more. It wasn’t until 2 years after I high school that I had the opportunity to go to culinary school. When I stepped foot into that kitchen and started learning I knew that that’s what I wanted to do. I loved every moment of it, making bread especially was mind blowing! I was just so transfixed by the transformation of a few simple ingredients like water, flour, salt and yeast. I soon started cooking in restaurants and hotels. I had the pleasure of learning from Chef Ricardo Munoz Zurita at one of his restaurants Azul y Oro in Mexico City and also worked at the Presidente Intercontinental near Playa del Carmen. Then I came to New York and here I’ve been so blessed to be able to work with amazing chefs at Michelin-starred restaurants such as Per Se, Eleven Madison Park, Nix and ATLA.  I decided to go plant-based 4 years ago when I met my wife. Changing the way I eat and cook was challenging but exciting. Cooking with no animal proteins was a real experience: it helped me to get more creative and inventive in the kitchen.  I really love the fact that I can create delicious food with only plants and that I get the health benefits from it, and that I can help the world by doing so. I’ve also learnt to appreciate animals more. Admittedly, I wasn’t really aware of them before; I just ate to eat because that’s what I was taught. Now, I see them as living beings. I believe that a shift towards plant-based eating will help us have more food for those in need, a healthy planet, healthier people and a reduction in animal slaughter just for the sake of satisfying our demands. I don’t think animal farming will disappear completely, but at least we can strive for more conscious and sustainable practices. Now, as a private chef, I really enjoy cooking and creating culinary experiences for people that showcase the deliciousness of nature’s greatest ingredients. My favorite thing to hear is that people loved the food that I made even though they’re not vegan.
