REMEMBER YOUR HUMAN NATURE™
By the time your inner landscape has developed you’ve been exposed to an abundance of stress, feelings, beliefs, and opinions from the outer world around you. Adopting these beliefs and opinions from others, your Human Hangover® starts to form and you forget who you are.
Fatigued by the emotional stress of life, your mind and body start to compromise and accommodate to survive. This hungover state of dysregulation slowly becomes the standard model for your life and the root cause of many physical and mental discomforts. Learning to properly navigate and care for your inner landscape guides you to finding sustainable health and living a life of authenticity. The Human Hangover® map helps us navigate our inner landscape by strengthening our connection between body, mind and spirit.
INNER WORK BODY MAP™
The Human Hangover® Map is made with a bottom-up approach, focusing on body-first remedies. Click below to download your free snapshot to the Human Hangover® guide before the full course becomes available!
The Inner Work Body Map™ is one of the first guides you’ll encounter at Ego Island and a great way to start listening to what your body is telling you.
“DRUNK ON SHAME AND FEAR, WE HAVE FORGOTTEN THE PURPOSE OF THE SOUL – TO LOVE.”
EGO ISLAND &
THE EMOTION OCEAN
Floating in an ocean of your mother’s energy, you start to experience the world around you. A song, a voice, maybe a light touch from the outer wall surrounding you. Then suddenly this sea you’ve been familiar with starts to drain and you are released into a new world.

When this happens, an island starts to show – a land mass rises from the Emotion Ocean and begins to form the outline of your life. Birthed from the waters of your parents, Ego Island takes shape first, giving life to survival instincts and your desire for safety.
As the emotional waters of those around you mix and mingle, you begin to create your own waves in the Emotion Ocean that surrounds your inner landscape. These waves can be small ripples, or toppling giants but each wave impacts the erosion and stability of your Ego Island.
OWL – Observe With Love
RIVER OF REASON &
THE FOREST OF FEELS
Barred Owl from my office window.
Just north of the island new ground starts to rise from the waters and creates a mountainous landscape with a river running through it. The River of Reason is where emotions blend with reasoning, judgement, and choice. This power of will requires a flow of information moving from body to brain and brain to body, giving insight and feedback to help you make decisions in life.
On the land to the right of the river develops your Forest of Feels as their roots pull from the emotional waters of your ocean and reasoning waters of your river. These rooted belief systems are what feed your feelings that branch out, looking for light, in hopes of growing and producing fruit in your life.

VAGAL VALLEY &
THE VAGAL BRIDGE
Duke and I taking in the valley views at Glacier National Park.
From here you can cross the bridge that links your nervous system and brain to the rest of your physical body. The Vagal Bridge can be strengthened by supporting your Vagus nerve- the leader when it comes to body and mind communication.
However, falling through a weakened bridge can mean tumbling down the Vagal Valley and being swept back to Ego Island because of a dysregulated nervous system.
Bridge the gap between body and mind through Vagal Reminders™ created to help you strengthen and tone the vagus nerve. These exercises speak directly to the control center of the body so we can fully rewire and reprogram our mind and body.
FOUNTAIN OF YOU &
MOVE IT MOUNTAIN
Celebrating the view at the top in Glacier.
Once across the bridge, you’ll have access to the Fountain of You where self-reflection is vital to surviving the trek up the mountain. Here you’ll find the Waterfall of Why, where the monotonous question of why rinses off the residual questions of your past. From here you can find refuge and rest in the Cave of The Subconscious or continue skyward up the mountain.
Move It Mountain connects you to the higher perspective and exposes you to the bigger picture of your life. On the mountain your emotional waters can vaporize easily and move along with the wind, transforming into a new droplet of water and joining the ocean again. From up here it’s also possible to see the inner landscapes of others in the distance, and the vast emotional waters that connect and affect us all.
