Effortless Awakening: Surrender To What Is

April 20—25, 2021



Awakening is easier than you might imagine. Essential nature is at the heart of your  presence–a vibrant inner stillness waiting to be revealed. Why continuously struggle to find peace when each moment can offer an invitation to embrace what is? Learn to listen and welcome what life asks of you so that you can open to what is most essential. No difficulty, no striving. Just experiencing an indestructible, unchanging essence that is full of joy, well-being, and peace.

This retreat with Director of iRest Europe James Reeves and Senior Director of Teaching and Programs Stephanie Lopez, is an opportunity to rest deeply, reconnect to your fundamental sense of well-being, and learn to embrace how your life unfolds. You will engage in nourishing meditation practices including iRest Yoga Nidra, meditative self-inquiry, BodySensing, and BreathSensing. These tools can help you begin to open your innate curiosity and restore connection with yourself. With effortless awakening, you may find yourself living from a ground of freedom and ease that is in harmony with life.
