Peace begins on the inside of each individual. Meditation is a tool to help access and harness this inner peace so that one can live life from a more easeful and balanced place.

This time is created for YOU to come and practice your meditation. Even if you have never practiced meditation before or your practice is intermittent you will receive the support in these monthly support gatherings.

This time is for everyone: experienced to beginner.

This session will consist of:

  • Intention setting
  • 15 min: Light discussion drawing on poetry, ancient texts and other inspirational sources
  • 20 min: Seated silent meditation practice
  • 35 min: Sound bathing in savanna or any other restorative yogic posture

Following the seated silent meditation, one will be able to lie down, relax and bathe in the vibrational sounds of the gong, quartz bowls and chimes.

iRest/Yoga Nidra & Yogic Sound Bath

Sunday January 28: 4:00-5:15pm

This session will consist of:

  • Intention setting
  • 10 min: Yoga Nidra immersion including discussion drawing on poetry, ancient texts and other inspirational sources
  • 30 min: Seated or lying down yoga nidra meditation
  • 35 min: Sound bathing

iRest stands for Integrative Restoration and is also known as Yoga Nidra.

This is a 30-minute meditation technique where you lie down and completely relax, reduce your stress, and restore your energy.

iRest is a  “research-based”  transformative practice of deep relaxation and meditative inquiry.  It is currently being utilized on military bases and in hospitals, schools, and community programs including programs for hospice and the homeless. Research has shown that it effectively reduces PTSD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, and chemical dependency while increasing health, resiliency, well-being and overall state-of-mind.

This program is coupled with Sound bathing, infusing the Yoga Nidra practice with this unique addition, creating a fully immersive experience.

Sound bathing is the sound of harmonic vibrations created by singing bowls, gongs and other highly resonant instruments. It can stimulate the alpha and theta brain waves that are associated with deep meditative and peaceful states that are highly conducive to healing. Sound can also slow down the heart and respiratory rate, creating a therapeutic effect on the mind and body. When the brain waves and body are synchronized, balance can be restored and stress released.

Come join us once a month to relax and counter all the over-stimulation we get in our daily lives.

You will receive a recording to take with you for your home use.
