iRest® ~ Journey to the Heart with iRest Yoga Nidra
August 23, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
For Health, Healing and Awakening
Integrative Restoration, or iRest, is an adaptation of Yoga Nidra, a form of meditative self-inquiry from the teachings of yoga, which we engage for many reasons: to induce deep relaxation throughout the body and mind, eliminate stress, overcome insomnia, solve personal and interpersonal problems, resolve trauma, neutralize and overcome anxiety, fear, anger and depression, as well as to enter deep meditation in order to unravel the mystery of life and answer such questions as: “Who am I?” “Why am I?” “What is all of this?” and “What is enlightenment?”
iRest provides us with guidelines for investigating and going beyond self-limiting beliefs and conditioning in order to break free of restrictive patterns so that we can live a contented life, free of conflict, anxiety, fear, dissatisfaction and suffering. In its ultimate form, iRest reveals the secret of enlightenment so that we may recognize our True Nature as nondual Presence or Being.
During iRest we enter receptive states of relaxation and deep meditation, all the while remaining aware and alert. iRest reveals our innate intelligence and intrinsic clarity, allowing us to uncover and access our inherent wisdom-an intelligence that knows the exact solutions, revelations and resolutions we need in order to address the issues, problems, questions and conundrums that we face in our daily life.
During iRest it is common for spontaneous physical, psychological and interpersonal transformational shifts to occur, as negative patterns of conditioning are burned away by the fire of discriminative wisdom that ignites, as we tap into our innate inner wisdom; a wisdom so powerful that it easily burns through even the most formidable destructive patterns of physical and psychological conditioning.
iRest is an educational process that restores our understanding of who we really are. It leads to profound and sweeping changes within-throughout the mind and body-as well with-out-in all of our relationships-as it is a fundamental resource for transforming physical health, as well as reshaping personal, interpersonal and professional relationships. iRest is an in-depth process, which reconnects us to our deepest, most intimate intuitive and spontaneous intelligence. It is simple to learn and easy to practice and once learned, it becomes a tool we can use.
How It Works
iRest is integrative, in that it heals the various unresolved issues, traumas, and wounds that are present in the body and mind. It is restorative in that it aids its practitioners in recognizing their underlying peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances of life.
