We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.  Joseph Campbell

An iRest Yoga Nidra Rest-shop, Easing into the New Year

Dharma Yoga, January 26, 2018, 4-6:15pm, $25

With the holiday season behind you, it may be tempting to leap into the New Year with ambitious goals in mind.  While goals can help to guide, it is essential to pause, restore and remember. By feeling and listening, we can remember what matters to our spirit, and hear the call of Life itself.  

1__deCqE2JSdMVdsbRtAQZlgIn this afternoon rest-shop, we will begin with gentle movement and breathing.  I will orient you to iRest® yoga nidra meditation, and guide you through a forty minute practice, often explored in a reclining position.  We will open without agenda, meeting life as it is. In this ground of Being, rest naturally happens and the Heart can be gently tended to.  At the end, I will offer questions for silent inquiry with the option of journaling. We will close with time for sharing, discussion and questions.  

No experience is required, simply your curiosity.  Please bring any props that will allow you to be at ease and a journal if you would like.  You will be given a link to the recording for guided iRest practice.

We are all just walking each other Home.  Ram Dass

These classes are intended to be a safe space for practice and community.  Both can be important supports along our journey.  The practice I primarily share is guided meditation in the form of iRest Yoga Nidra weaved together with direct Inquiry.  Classes include ample time to connect, discuss and share.

iRest is a healing practice of guided meditation and inquiry. In practice, we explore meeting life as life is. Some experience deep rest and relaxation during the initial practices. This can be incredibly restorative. As the practitioner has replenished oneself, he/she will feel more alert to the layers of experience that are being revealed.  The gift of this practice is in returning to an ease of Being in the midst of life, and to a felt sense of wholeness and the wisdom that brings one into harmony with life.   You can find more information at http://www.irest.us .
