From managing stress and difficult emotions to experiencing more fully the beauty of life, meditation offers a simple, powerful, and timeless practice for feeling fully alive and at peace in the world.
Through this experiential workshop we’ll explore an introductory route into meditation in ways that you can apply to everyday life. A 6 week iRest course will follow this Taster Day.
The workshop will introduce iRest® – a pro-active meditation inquiry. iRest has been developed over 40 years by Dr. Richard Miller and associates and draws on the ancient tradition of Yoga Nidra (‘sleep yoga’). Yoga Nidra can be considered as a meditative heart of yoga and iRest has adapted the teachings to the conditions of modern life. Research has demonstrated how iRest, as educational technique, can effectively alleviate anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, depression, PTS and chemical dependency.
The workshop is suitable for beginners and for those who want to take their meditation further.
