Publisher's Summary

The form of research-based meditation known as Integrative Restoration (or iRest®) has helped special operations troops improve their resiliency, executives manage stress, cancer patients cope with pain, and trauma survivors experience safety and healing. Now, bring the practice right into your life and home in these 24 classes. 

Alternating between the theoretical and experiential, between the philosophical and the scientific, these classes guide you through each of the 10 vital steps of the iRest Yoga Nidra practice. You’ll also enjoy specialized sessions that examine how iRest Yoga Nidra can help you with improving your sleep habits, relieve short-term and chronic pain, manage stressors in work and life, and heal from traumatic injuries or experiences. 

Also, enjoy a variety of short- and long-form iRest Yoga Nidra practice sessions you can dive into either in the context of other classes or on their own. With the care, consideration, and guidance you’d expect from a master meditation teacher, Ms. Birkholm helps you with proper positioning, sensing your body, discovering uncaused joy, cultivating your inner resource, and more. The result is an integrated learning experience that invites you to participate in guided meditation techniques that have been adopted by large corporations and the US Department of Defense. 

Crafted with joy, peace, and wisdom, these classes are an empowered (and empowering) tool with the potential to reshape the way you react to the world. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Love this audio book and so Helpful!

I listen to the guided meditations regularly and they’ve really helped me tap into feeling myself and my feelings. My only off comment is that sometimes she goes faster than I am ready for and I have to pause to immerse myself properly into the visualization or listening.

The disclaimer after each chapter is too loud

Content is well organized and narrated. PDF material is detailed with index for contents . However, the disclaimer after every chapter is too loud, esp. after practice my mind is supposed to be relaxed. Wish there is a way to turn this off.

A Keeper

Thorough and informative . The book provides practice along with the lectures. The voice was a little high pitch and it took time to get used to it. Other than that, would recommend. Take your time, enjoy the journey

What we resist persist

What a beautiful and nice course. To me the most valuable are the meditation practices. I took this course with the video format from www.thegreatcourses.com. However, this was not enough for me, so I decided to acquire the audiobook as well to repeat the meditation practices whenever I want.
