iRest® Meditation provides us with guidelines for going beyond our self-limiting beliefs and conditions. Its practice allows us to break free of restrictive patterns, and to live a contented life, free of conflict, anxiety, fear, dissatisfaction, and suffering.
iRest® nourishes noble qualities such as joy, peacefulness, empathy, forgiveness, patience, and lovingkindness towards yourself and others.
iRest® Yoga Nidra Meditation is a form of Mindfulness Meditation. It is like a deep sleep, during which the brain enters the states of dream and dreamless sleep.
During iRest® we enter receptive states of deep relaxation and meditation, while remaining aware and alert. iRest® reveals our innate intelligence and intrinsic clarity. Its practice enables us to uncover and access our inherent wisdom, an intelligence that knows the exact revelations and solutions we need to address the issues and conundrums that we face in daily life.
