Meditation, Pure + Simple
A six week iRest Meditation course to find your calm, build resiliency and come home to yourself.
Meditation doesn’t have to be hard.
And it certainly doesn’t have to be boring.
Join me for this online six week meditation course to dive deep in the wonderful world of iRest Yoga Nidra. In this course you’ll increase your self knowledge and you’ll learn how to gracefully and authentically meet the ups and downs of life with peace and calm. It’s more than just a meditation practice. It’s a way of life.
You’ve heard that meditation is good for you, right?
- increased happiness

- decreased depression, anxiety and stress

- increased resiliency and coping with daily life
- healing from chronic pain, chronic fatigue and cancer
- improved fertility
- overcoming trauma
- simply being more present and mindful
- deeper self understanding and even enlightenment
Life is busy and fast paced.
With so much technology and choice these days it can get overwhelming.
Meditation gives you a tool to connect to a place within that is deeper than than all this. A place that is calm, at ease and peaceful, amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life.
My own meditation journey was a bumpy one.
I read about meditation and intellectualised it for a few years before actually trying it (you know, reading about meditation is not the same as actually doing it). When I finally sat down to try it, I had such a monkey mind that I thought I couldn’t meditate.
But I persisted.
I spent years learning various meditation techniques with gurus in India, teachers in the USA, UK and Australia, and I even wrote my doctoral thesis on mindfulness meditation for depression and anxiety. But it wasn’t until I tried Integrative Restoration Yoga Nidra ® that I finally found a meditation practice that was simple, easy, enjoyable and brought me all those benefits I’d read about.
The Low Down

What they’re saying about the course
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees.
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.
This course is for you if you want to:
|1.||deepen your existing meditation practice, or start a new one|
|2.||access a place within that is always at ease and always peaceful, despite the ups and downs of daily life|
|3.||get clear on your heartfelt desires and purpose in life|
|4.||be deeply relaxed, nourished and ready to engage in life|
|5.||learn how to surf the waves of your emotions and beliefs, rather than get caught up in them|
This course is NOT for you if you:
|1.||only want to read about meditation, but don’t actually want to practice it|
|2.||are not ready to deeply get to know yourself|
|3.||are currently experiencing moderate to severe depression, anxiety or trauma, or have current suicide ideation, and you don’t have support. If you do have support from a therapist or exceptionally supportive family and friends, this course could be a wonderful addition to your healing journey.
