It’s common for people, especially in the beginning, to nod off while meditating. Remember, during meditation, you’re practicing changing your brain waves, much like when you fall asleep at night. So it’s quite natural to sometimes lose alertness and drift into sleep. Here are some helpful tips to avoid this:

  • Change your setting: Avoid meditating in the bedroom, in bed or lying down. 
  • Stay engaged: Have a clear intention to stay awake when you start.
  • Sit up straight: Find a comfortable, but upright position. Sitting in a chair or on the floor can help.
  • Stay unsupported: If you keep nodding off, try sitting without leaning against anything. This can help you stay more awake and alert.
  • Notice head bobs: If your head starts bobbing during meditation, it’s a sign that your brain waves are changing. As soon as you notice the head bob, straighten up a bit to avoid going into deep delta and fall asleep.
  • Focus on breathing: If drowsiness persists, focus on your breath. This can help draw your attention away from sleepiness and boost energy in your brain.
  • Keep practicing and experimenting until you find what works best for you. Don’t get discouraged if you nod off occasionally – it’s all part of the learning process!
As you activate different aspects of your nervous system and change brain waves it is not unusual for different thought patterns, inner sensory experiences or inner journeys to arise and it is completely safe. We recommend journaling for recording and integrating.

For in-person events you can start with our FSC weekend, the NIT Introduction course or a Soma Breath session. None of these have any prerequisites and are suitable for anyone.

Feel free to explore our resource section that holds hours and hours of knowledge.

Our webshop is an ever growing project filling up with useful audio and video content as we produce it.

Our events, courses, sessions and products are NOT treatments of any kind and are in now way meant to replace any medical treatment.

However, many people experience a general improvement in several aspects of their health as they find a more harmonious state of homeostasis and a better balance between the parasympathetic and sympathetic states.

We offer a platform that encourages self discovery and inner exploration. A platform that is providing tools for your own transformation if you so choose.

Soma Breath

SOMA Breath techniques are both safe and highly beneficial to your health and well-being as long as they are taught to you by a certified SOMA Breath Instructor. The breathing techniques used in SOMA Breath intentionally create changes in the body. Too much hyperventilation and too much hypoventilation can cause imbalance and be potentially problematic in rare cases. That is why SOMA Breath workshops/sessions are shorter than some other breathwork modalities.

Coherence techniques (rhythmical breathing) of SOMA Breath and gentle breath holds in the inhale which do not cause hypoxia are beneficial and safe for anyone. 

Forceful mouth breathing, prolonged breath holds and extended intense fast breathwork/hyperventilation for more than 5 minutes, should not be practiced in the case of any of the following:

  • Acute illness/ severe or critical diseases or infections, if it impairs your ability to breathe
  • Epilepsy 
  • Pacemaker
  • Severe lung disease, missing parts of a lung
  • COPD
  • Terminal Cancer 
  • Patients with pacemakers or heart arrhythmias.
  • Severe uncontrolled hypertension (usually after a heart attack)
  • Organ failure or late-stage terminal illness
  • Pregnancy

Some conditions which may be aggravated by breath holds in the exhale like Tinnitus and Hernias where careful attention to technique must be paid.

Conditions where hypoxic breath holds (exhale) may be used if your doctor has agreed to include it in your treatment plan:

  • Irregular heart beat
  • Ischemic heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Enhanced oxygen utilization efficiency
  • Improved carbon dioxide tolerance
  • Strengthened mind-body connection
  • Boosted cardiovascular health, including increased stamina, endurance, and overall fitness
  • Reduction in inflammation
  • Balanced nervous system
  • Deep meditative states
  • Heightened mental and physical resilience
  • Facilitation of mind reprogramming and self-hypnosis for self-improvement
  • A calmer, clearer mind leading to better judgment and decision-making
  • Effective stress management
  • Awakening to one’s soul’s purpose and authentic self
  • Increased confidence and self-esteem
  • Facilitated emotional processing and release

Not quite. Some of the SOMA Breath techniques are designed to create periods of Brief Intermittent Hypoxia, but that is not the same as IHT.

Read Niraj’s insightful blog post about IHT for more information. You may also be interested in Niraj’s blog post about the benefits of creating Brief Intermittent Hypoxia by holding your breath.

Yes, we do have online Soma Breath events. Please check our calendar for  when they are scheduled.

Online sessions

Yes. At the moment we can offer Soma Breath sessions on-line. You will find them in our calendar in the webshop. We also have a cooperation with Red Beard Somatic Therapy and offer Soma Breath sessions via their platform as well. 

We use zoom for our online sessions. You download zoom and create an account. You can download zoom here. When you have signed up for one of our sessions you will receive a zoom link that you can log into a few minutes before the session starts and the session host will let you in. 

Flow State Continuum (FSC) weekend

No previous experience is necessary.
We recommend that you bring a yoga or camping mat for the lying down practices and to include a blanket, possibly a pillow and eye shades for comfort. We recommend a water bottle to stay hydrated, and a journal for taking notes. An IKEA-type bag is great to carry this in. You can usually leave your stuff in the room for the duration of the retreat. Choose comfortable/relaxing, layered clothes.
FSC in a live, in-person event only.
Jason will lead the participants as a group through a series of questions and reflections to help you discover your thought patterns, emotional patterns and/or behavioral patterns. These patterns may be unconscious, creating automated reactions that may be in your own way, creating obstacles in your path through life. Jason and Siv will also lead you through a series of meditations, breathwork, inner journeys and other exercises to aid you in your process of discovery, transformation and integration. There are no individual consultations, we work as a group. We highly recommend keeping a journal.
This is for you who want more and go extra deep. When these are offered (very limited space), we start Thursday evening before the official FSC weekend (starting Friday) with a special theme that varies from time to time. We use Shamanic techniques to bring you on inner journeys.

We’ve all heard of those elusive moments when time seems to stand still, and every action flows seamlessly from one to the next. This phenomenon, known as the “Flow State,” was first identified by psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.

It’s described as a mental state of complete absorption, where a person is so immersed in an activity that they lose sense of time and self, achieving optimal performance.

Jason has defined the Flow State Continuum as a resilient and optimal state of connection, well being, present time consciousness, and performance.

Neurogenic Integration Technique (NIT)

Basically none. Dr. David Berceli founded TRE and in 2023 he asked Siv and Alex Greene to take TRE and give it a “lift” to help the technique reach more people. In the context we had to create a new name.

Siv is trained by dr. Berceli, and she has taught hundreds of people in this technique in multiple countries.

You will learn a basic understanding of what stress and trauma is and how it affects you. You will learn how to start, maintain and stop your inborn, neurogenic tremoring response and how to use it as a tool for your personal wellbeing. A tool that you have for the rest of your life.

This is a course for personal use, it is not a certification.

Choose comfortable/relaxing, layered clothes. We recommend a water bottle to stay hydrated, and a journal for taking notes.

Yes, you need to have attended the NIT intro course first.

For some of the more advanced sessions like Heart NIT, Cacao NIT, and Soma NIT it is highly beneficial to have been to a couple regular Group NIT’s first.

In the beginning some people find it hard to feel the Neurogenic Tremors. Usually  they are visible, ask your instructor, you are just not aware of them yourself yet. Some people feel they tremor better in groups than at home by themselves. This is fairly common, especially in the beginning. Key things to keep in mind: 

  • Relax into it, allow it. 
  • “Try” less
  • Be present with your body, be patient and caring with yourself.
  • Slow down your breathing.  
  • Use an area where you will not be disturbed and feel safe. 
  • See if you can more easily let go into it by putting on some music you enjoy

There is no right or wrong here. Sometimes you tremor more with bigger movements and other times it can be very subtle – like a deep vibration that is invisible, but palpable when you lay your hand on it. Allow the tremor to develop in its own time, in its own way. 

The NIT introduction course is a live, in-person course only.
The NIT sessions are live, in-person experience only.
Enjoy it, relax into it and keep tremoring. There is nothing right or wrong with that. Join our group practices and allow it to unfold.
Just stretch your legs out long and relax, usually that is enough. If you need to, tense the muscles in the legs and point your toes upwards towards your body, tense your arms and make fists. Hold for a short time and relax. Sit up gently, stand up and just walk around.

Self-regulation in NIT/TRE refers to the capacity to manage and modulate one’s own emotions, thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations without requiring external direction or oversight. It involves the ability to tolerate and navigate internal experiences independently.

Recent findings in cognitive neuroscience suggest that effective self-regulation relies on the prefrontal cortex exerting top-down control over subcortical brain regions associated with survival instincts and emotions.

Self-regulatory collapse occurs when an individual becomes unable to control overwhelming emotions, thoughts, feelings, or bodily sensations. This state reflects a breakdown in the capacity to manage internal experiences autonomously.

Safety: Engage in NIT/TRE exercises when you feel safe and grounded throughout the process.

Managing Physical Discomfort: If you experience physical pain, adjust your position, modify the speed or intensity of the exercises, or stop altogether if necessary. Take a break, sit up, and hydrate with water.

Emotional Well-being: If you feel emotionally overwhelmed or uncomfortable, slow down or pause the NIT/TRE process until you regain a sense of safety and grounding. Sit up and take a moment to hydrate.

Breathe: Be aware of your breath. Remember to breathe into your belly, and if you need to, slow down your breath to get a deeper sense of relaxation into the experience. 

Starting out: For beginners, it’s OK to start out easy, tremoring for 15 minutes or less, and to practice NIT/TRE 3 or 4 times a week.

Progression: As you become proficient in self-regulation and gain experience with TRE over a few weeks, you can extend your tremor time and increase the frequency of sessions according to your own judgment and comfort level.

NIT/TRE should not be practiced under the following conditions: 

  • Pregnancy
  • Epilepsy
  • Seizures
  • Schizophrenia
  • Recent open wound surgery

NIT/TRE should be practiced with care, under the following conditions:

  • Lack of ability to self-regulate
  • Physical pain that increase with tremoring
  • Under psychiatric treatment

Consulting Medical Professionals Before Practicing NIT/TRE

Individuals with any psychiatric conditions, or those taking medications for any such condition should consult their medical professional or a Certified NIT/TRE Provider before engaging in NIT/TRE self-regulation. This consultation ensures that individuals learn and practice NIT/TRE in an appropriate and correct manner.

Precautions for NIT/TRE

NIT/TRE is an integral component of holistic healing and wellness programs. While generally safe and effective for stress release, certain precautions must be observed:

  • NIT/TRE should not be used as a replacement for medical or psychiatric/psychological diagnosis and treatment.
  • It is not a substitute for trauma recovery methods that require medical or psychological/psychiatric intervention.
  • Participation in NIT/TRE sessions and programs does not guarantee a cure and should not replace professional medical or psychological care.
  • Individuals with specific physical or psychological conditions, fragile psychological defenses, complex trauma histories, or significant physical limitations must consult their medical practitioner and obtain consent before engaging in NIT/TRE exercises.
  • NIT/TRE practitioners do not diagnose or interfere with the treatment prescribed by licensed medical professionals.
  • Always consult a licensed healthcare provider for any physical or psychological concerns before or after practicing NITTRE.
  • Participation in group or private NIT/TRE sessions is undertaken at the client’s own risk, and neither The Integrated Human, nor its providers or coaches can be held liable for any outcomes resulting from the use of information on this site or engagement in our services.

Important Cacao and Health Information

Cacao is bitter

100% pure cacao is bitter. As with any bitter, too much can make you nauseous. Most drink less than 2 to 3 ounces (57 to 85 grams) of cacao a day. Over time, as your body attunes to the cacao, you may find that you need less cacao to feel the full effect. Less can be more. Pay attention to what your body is telling you.


Depending on dose, SSRI antidepressants and anti-psychotics are not compatible with the MAOI’s (Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors) in cacao. Low to average doses should be ok, people on higher doses should drink less cacao. Check with your doctor.

Heart Rate

Our cacao will raise your heart rate slightly. If an increase in your heart rate could cause a medical problem, drink less. Check with your doctor.

Blood Pressure

Many folks with low blood pressure tell Keith that our cacao (low-caffeine) stabilizes their heart and helps them. Check with your doctor.

Other substances

Our cacao increases blood flow to the brain by 30-40%… so any other substances in your blood will be amplified.


Keith is often asked by people with a caffeine intolerance if they can use cacao. The caffeine content of cacao varies widely amongst cacao varieties and cacao makers. Most find our cacao to have a very low, to no-caffeine feel.


Use less, according to the child’s body weight. It depends on the child. They will let you know. Children who have had an appropriate amount of cacao are more focused.


Real cacao contains compounds that can kill dogs, cats, parrots, and horses. Don’t let them eat it!
