Beginning in April 2015 and for the following 10-12 months, Deborah Cohen, LMFT Group facilitator and Meditation Teacher, will lead the group through relaxation yoga and “getting-in-touch” practices that she learned from a training with Dr. Richard Miller, of the Integrative Restoration Institute. Richard developed i-Rest, a very powerful path to help you live a contented life, free of conflict and fear, by opening your mind and body to its inherent ground of health and well-being. I-Rest includes body sensing, breath awareness practices relaxation yoga (Yoga Nidra) and other practices designed to achieve deep calm and peace quickly and easily, even when faced with difficult or traumatic events. As you learn and practice the i-Rest practices, you will find inner resources for deep peace and rest that can be done almost anywhere and at anytime to gain relief from anxiety, fear, or other uncomfortable physical and emotional symptoms, and cultivate inner peace and homeostasis.
As well and most importantly, iRest is a path of awakening. Richard Miller himself is an awake, nondual teacher. He has extensively studied all of the great wisdom spiritual teachings from around the world, as well as deeply studying and experiencing many forms of yoga. He had a number of awakening experiences many years ago and lives as a shining light of awakeness for so many. He is helping military personnel all over the world to awaken to their true nature through his iRest trainings, which are now taught at dozens of military bases and VA Centers.
