The Power of Pause: Finding Rest, Renewal, and Happiness in Our Busy Lives

October 21—23, 2022



"When we pause, allow a gap and breathe deeply, we can experience instant refreshment. Suddenly, we slow down, look out, and there’s the world." —Pema Chödrön

This weekend away from the busyness of your life is designed to guide you in mining the gold that is deep rest.

The collective mantra of our time—"I'm so busy"—is pervasive. Taking restorative time for yourself is a revolutionary act in favor of vitality, mental clarity and focus, inner peace, and a sustained sense of contentment and love.

Experience the immense power of intentionally pausing as an antidote to overwork, unrelenting responsibilities and desires, and mindless accumulation.

All the silence, peace, and calm you yearn for is the gold that already exists within you. Through the 10 steps of iRest Yoga Nidra you’ll be guided to discover and explore this precious realm that exists in all of us and which is always available. iRest Yoga Nidra naturally deepens your skills to rest, renew, and remain in peace with a focused mind. It reminds you that your deepest Self is a source of peace and happiness.

Whether you’re an experienced meditator or a beginner, this is a practice to support you to connect with an inner calm and contentment during any moment of your life, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing.
