Weekly Meditation from Home
Yoga nidra (yoga sleep) is a spoken word guided meditation that promotes a sense of deep calm while enhancing awareness. The meditation class follows the 10 stage iRest™ protocol.
 
During class Veterans:
  • Discover a heartfelt mission & purpose and establish a goal for the meditation
  • Establish and connect with an inner “safe haven”
  • Explore the connection between body sensations, emotions, thoughts and beliefs with an awareness of how thoughts and emotions affect the body and mind
  • Learn to experience an inner joy and develop an awareness of, and access to, one's own sense of well-being
  • Connect with an inner strength & resiliency in order to more appropriately “respond” rather than “react” to situations in life
Ask your Primary Care Provider for a referral to participate in this meditation.
