What is iRest®?
Based on the ancient teachings of meditation, Integrative Restoration, or iRest®, is an evidence-based transformative practice that leads to psychological, physical, and spiritual healing and well-being. iRest is a mind-body approach that is the result of thirty years of observation, research and hands-on development by Dr. Richard Miller and associates (see ww.irest.us). Its practice is integrative as it heals the various unresolved issues and traumas that are present in your body and mind, and restorative as it enables you to recognize your innate peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances of life. iRest provides you with tools to help you relax deeply, release stress, increase resiliency, improve your interpersonal relationships and provide you with greater mastery and control in your life. People who practice iRest report:
- Reduced depression, fear and anxiety
- Reduced insomnia and levels of stress
- Reduced chronic and acute pain
- Reduced chemical dependency
- Improved ability to relax and enjoy life
- Improved interpersonal relations
- Increased inner peace and well-being
The first half of this workshop will focus on exploring the iRest 10-step protocol and developing individual personal tools. The second half of the workshop will be experiencing a full iRest yoga nidra meditation practice.
