About iRest Yoga Nidra

iRest Yoga Nidra is a research-based meditation, relaxation and healing protocol. The practice of iRest enables you to deeply calm your nervous system, integrate difficult thoughts & emotions, and offers a portal for awakening to your essential nature. iRest meditation is both an excellent personal practice as well as adjunctive practice for healthcare & healing professionals. Research shows iRest effectively reduces stress, insomnia, anxiety, depression, chronic pain & post-traumatic stress disorder, and enhances joy, equanimity & wellbeing in daily life.

A Weekend with the Radiance Sutras

Date

Friday, June 28, 2019 from 6:30p to 8:30p
Saturday, June 29, 2019 from 10:00a to 5:30p
Sunday, June 30, 2019 from 9:00a to 12:30p

Teacher

Lorin Roche & Camille Maurine

Cost

$287. Early bird enrollment if paid in full by May 28, 2019: $257

Come join us for a journey with The Radiance Sutras, a love-drenched classic yoga meditation text that was clearly intended for people who live in the real world. The Sutras present meditation as a process of falling in love with life, with the pulsations and rhythms of the life force itself as it flows in our bodies. The text describes 112 different doorways into contact with the soul, ranging from breathing practices, to kundalini awakenings, to just letting your mind wander, to listing to inner sounds such as mantas, to rocking out to music, dancing, feasting, lovemaking, communing with nature, experiencing intense emotions.

Anyone can practice these methods of meditation. We each have our favorite ways which we can get better at as we develop new skills. Learn meditation practices that you can take home and practice on your own, that truly suit your individual nature. The emphasis is on naturalness, spontaneity, and being at home in yourself and in nature.

Dr. Lorin Roche began meditating in 1968 as part of scientific research at the University of California. He was trained as a meditation teacher in 1970 and has been sharing the delight ever since. His work focuses on individual differences, helping each person find the meditation practices and styles that help them to thrive. He has a PhD from the University of California at Irvine for his studies of the language meditators use to describe their inner experiences. Dr. Roche is the author of Meditation Made Easy, (HarperOne, 1998); with his wife, Camille Maurine, he wrote Meditation Secrets for Women (HarperOne, 2001). The Radiance Sutras, a new version of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, has been published by Sounds True. Lorin and his yogini shaktini wife, Camille Maurine, live in Marina del Rey, California.

A $75.00 cancellation fee is included in the cost. No refunds will be given within 30 days of the workshop.

Art & Meditation

Date

Saturday, March 23 from 4:00p to 6:00p

Teacher

Katie Whitsett

Cost

$30

This class will explore the energetic and felt sensory experience in the body through breath, meditation and art. We will cycle through periods of guided meditation and mindful watercolor painting, opening to new creative possibilities in our bodies and on paper. No prior art or meditation experience required.

Marica Miller Shares: If you ever thought (or someone told you) that you are not an artist, then this is the workshop for you. If you can breathe and hold a paint brush then you can make art with Katie as your guide. Her presence and instructions are just what you need to let go of fear and judgment about yourself and your ability to make art. I have worked with her several times and each time felt such exhilaration, freedom and joy. In one of my paintings I also discovered a deep message that is still helping me to live one of my highest values. AND, if you already know yourself to be an artist then this workshop will be pure bliss for you too!

Katie Whitsett holds a BA in Studio Art from Hanover College and is currently working with watercolors and more recently ceramics. She has melded her art and yoga lineages using art and meditation as mediums for exploring breath, energy, and the innate beauty that is within each of us.

A $15.00 cancellation fee is included in the cost of this workshop. No refunds will be given within 7 days of the start date of workshops.
