iRest Workshop

December 1, 2018

Kyoto, Japan


This in-depth workshop presents the principles and practice of iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation, an ancient form of yogic meditation that has been adapted for modern times by Richard Miller, PhD over the past 48 years. Accessible and effective, iRest has been proven through research to enhance wellness, resiliency, and well-being, while supporting healing across a broad range of issues, including stress, insomnia, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, PTSD, and TBI. The iRest Program supports psychological, physical, and spiritual health by assisting practitioners to access their innate source of unchanging well-being that resides within all of us. iRest has been endorsed by the US Army Surgeon General and Defense Centers of Excellence as a complementary and alternative medicine, and is currently being used in yoga and meditation centers, hospitals, clinics, and private settings worldwide.

Incorporating wisdom from the ancient teachings of Samkhya, Patañjali’s Yoga Sutra, Advaita Nondualism, and Kashmir Unqualified Nondualism, iRest offers direct teachings for awakening to our Essential Nature that is always whole and healthy, that can never be harmed, and is never in need of healing. iRest also offers progressive teachings for addressing what is in need of healing within the body and mind, that give rise to stress, disease, and suffering.

This workshop presents iRest through a combination of lecture, group discussion, and guided meditation. Easily integrated into your personal life, everyone can benefit from iRest, no matter your philosophical, religious, or spiritual orientation.

During this workshop, you will:
• Experience the ten steps of iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation
• Understand current research underlying iRest
• Utilize the power of 'opposites' to potentiate healing
• Diffuse resistance, stress, pain, and insomnia through the power of ‘Welcoming’
• Recognize Essential Nature as your ultimate inner resource of unbreakable well-being
