iRest® & Meditation
Interested in learning more about meditation? Would you like to bring meditation into your work place or community? I’m trained in many forms of meditation such as (Integrative Restoration) iRest® meditation. This form of meditation pairs well with my Vibrational & Crystal Medicine Journey. iRest® is a ten step process that is effective, guided that can be performed in a group or individual setting. It is a deeply healing meditative practice that is based on the ancient teachings of yoga, meditation and yoga nidra. Dr Richard Miller PhD developed the10 step iRest protocol to make the transformative practice accessible to a modern audience. In addition, the iRest Co-meditation Dyad is a meditation gift to yourself. In a personal one-on-one session, you’re asked to describe your present experience and mirrors your process, holding and supporting you in the meditation. The process unfolds in you at your pace. Being seen and heard without any agenda to fix or change creates the potential for deep insight and healing to be enhanced. This is a powerful co-meditation practice. Contact me if you’re interested in bringing this to your work place, school or community. Or schedule your private session.
iRest is a meditation practice based on the ancient tradition of Yoga Nidra and adapted to suit the conditions of modern life. When practiced regularly - a little and often - iRest enables you to meet each moment of your life with unshakable peace and wellbeing, no matter how challenging or difficult your situation.
iRest was developed by Dr. Richard Miller, a spiritual teacher, author, yogic scholar, researcher and clinical psychologist, who combined traditional yogic practice with Western psychology and neuroscience. It is practiced and taught by thousands of people worldwide in a wide range of settings, including health centers, schools, community centers, yoga studios, correctional facilities and military hospitals.
Based on current studies with iRest in the military, the Defense Centers of Excellence has approved iRest as a Complementary and Alternative Medicine warranting continuing research for its use in the treatment of PTSD. In addition, the U.S. Army Surgeon General has has listed Yoga Nidra (based on research with iRest) as a Tier 1 approach for addressing Pain Management in Military Care. iRest has been shown to be effective in scientific trials for conditions including chronic pain, sleep problems, depression and anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
iRest is simple to learn and easy to practice. It can be practiced by anyone, regardless of physical ability or experience with meditation. Once learned, iRest becomes a set of tools for life.
