Guided MeditationDescription
iRest® Yoga Nidra for Restoration:

27 minutes

This practice focuses on the initial steps of iRest: sankalpa, body and breath sensing. It offers you an opportunity to regulate your nervous system, while you orient to the supports around you, and the sensations within your body.
Body, Breath and Being, iRest® Yoga Nidra meditation:

16 minutes

This is an iRest® yoga nidra meditation practice that invites you to journey through the body and the breath, while taking moments to open to the ground of Being as it is revealed. In closing, you will be invited to listen for intention, and if available, envisioning it into your day.
Relaxing into Loving Kindness:

28 minutes

This yoga nidra practice guides you through the sounds and quiet of the environment, inward to the body of sensation, vibration, and ultimately opening to the field of Being and the warmth of loving kindness.
Freedom within the Dance:

23 minutes

In this practice, you will take time to feel into both the objects within your experience, and to rest in the space through which these objects come and go.  The objects may be the sounds in our environment, the sensations and breath in our body or the passing of emotions and thoughts.  Often the objects obscure the spaciousness that is eternally here, very much like the clouds that obscure the vastness of the sky. 
Breath Meditation:

8 minutes

This short guided meditation leads you through affirming intention, opening to the changing experience of the breath and closing  by dropping into the experience of unchanging Presence.
Nourishing Inner Resource:

3 minutes

This guided meditation focuses on nourishing Inner Resource.  Inner resource is the felt sense of an underlying well-being, ground, and safety that can be evoked through imagery, and ultimately experienced in the field of the body. 
Pause into Timeless Presence:

2 minutes  

Shorter meditations, a few times through the day can be both accessible and deeply beneficial.  As my teachers remind me, “little and often” is a great way to weave meditation into your day.
