The Art and Science of Yogic Meditation: Nondual Wisdom Teachings for Enlightened Living

August 21—26, 2022

Stockbridge, MA


Meditation invites you to awaken to your wholeness, to what is undeniable yet often ignored because of its simplicity. It teaches you how to recognize old patterns of guarding and resisting built over a lifetime of meeting life’s challenges. As you open your innate curiosity, reactivity softens and your natural aliveness awakens.

Using guided iRest® Yoga Nidra Meditation, silent sitting, interactive dialogue, gentle movement and breathing techniques imparting deep rest and relaxation, Stephanie Lopez offers accessible practices that reveal your essential nature. Meditative self-inquiry permeates every offering and moment of retreat.

The teachings of iRest Meditation incorporate principles of Sankhya, Patañjali, Advaita Vedanta, and Kashmir Shaivism.

Learn transformational practices that support vibrancy, resilience, wellbeing, and awakening in this program that includes:

  • A comprehensive map for every stage of meditation
  • Practices that support healing the limiting core beliefs and life issues you bring to meditation
  • Meditations that nourish inherent qualities of essential nature such as love, curiosity, compassion, equanimity, joy, and wonder
  • How to integrate meditation into daily life

Join Stephanie to explore what is alive and essential in each of us – an underlying stillness and unshakeable ease of Being and Awareness that is here during every moment of life.
