Harnessing the Transformative Potential of Heartfelt Desire

August 7, 2021



This is the second session of a six-part monthly series open to all iRest teachers.

The effective enabling of a palpable, authentic connection to a Heartfelt Desire in your students is the beginning of their transformation. Reconnecting to a personal purpose helps ground your students in a greater positive context. This new perspective is both therapeutic and motivating.

In this session you will: 

  • Learn how to adapt your approach for students who find trying to connect with their Heartfelt Desire confusing or stressful.
  • Expand your thinking around what constitutes a Heartfelt Desire so that your guidance can be more relatable, inclusive, and creative.
  • Explore practical ways to offer clear and applicable guidance that feels natural, accessible and is effective.

This session includes:

  • Interactive group learning
  • Breakout rooms for exploration with the iRest teacher community
  • Group sharing and integration of new knowledge
  • A nourishing yoga nidra practice

Please note: Recordings are now available! If you register for this event and can’t attend live, you will receive a link to the recording within 72 hours. You can access the recording for 2 months.
