Celebrating by Anne Douglas

We at the iRest® Institute are in the mood for celebration. Let's continue to grow our heartfelt mission, to help people resolve their suffering, by experiencing deep healing and lasting peace, through iRest-Yoga Nidra and other non-dual practices.

We are touched by the profound stories of healing and awakening that our teachers and students share regularly.  The iRest Institute is changing peoples lives in meaningful ways, and so we take this heartfelt moment to deeply acknowledge, honor, and celebrate all of the good work being done.

We are proud to be growing our research based, trauma sensitive protocol into a diverse range of populations and settings, and celebrate all the ways that every iRest practitioner, Teacher in Training, and Certified Teacher embody and share iRest in the world. 

As we move into the season of giving, if you are so inspired, we invite you to tithe revenue from an iRest class, or to make a tax deductable donation to the iRest Institute. It is the generosity of people like you that enables us to continue to do research, offer scholarships, and engage in other noble works.

May this holiday season be filled with joyous celebration, loving connections, and abiding peace.
