iRest® Meditation for Those Who Serve
Have you served your community or nation in the military, as a first-responder, firefighter, police officer, and/or any other role that you’ve potentially experienced trauma or secondary trauma? You’re invited to join this first iRest® series on Mind Oasis for FREE!
iRest® Yoga Nidra Meditation has been utilized extensively in military communities both with active duty and Veteran Service members to improve sleep, decrease anxiety and depression, improve chronic pain and to heal the impact of military trauma. The practice is easy to learn, and can be practiced easily at home with the use of recordings. This class will introduce the basics of iRest® Meditation, include a 35 minute iRest® practice, a group discussion. Research has shown that iRest® effectively reduces PTSD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain and chemical dependency while increasing health, resiliency, and well-being. Karen Soltes began the iRest® Yoga Nidra and meditation program at the Washington DC VA Hospital and is a founding partner of Warriors at Ease.

Each class will have a teaching on one of the Feminine aspects, a healing meditation, practices offered for you to incorporate into your life, and an opportunity for questions and sharing.

Meditations in Life
How can we take meditation out into the world beyond our cushion? In this class we will cover simple practices that we can use in our daily lives to help us drop into the magic and mystery of here and now. Each week we will focus on something which is always available to us – our senses, the breath, inner body awareness, everyday activities, etc – that can act as a portal to remembering our inherent goodness, compassion, and wisdom.
