Welcome to iRest.

iRest is typically taught as a guided meditation. Below you will find samples of iRest meditations you can listen to guided by Richard Miller, PhD, creator of iRest. These recordings are designed for everyone: both experienced iRest practitioners and newcomers alike.

To try iRest you don't need to do anything complicated. Just find a comfortable place: either seated or lying down. You can follow the recording with your eyes open or gently closed - whatever feels best for you. Please feel free to try it out and learn to experience a feeling of calm amidst the ever changing circumstances of life.
