Join Richard Miller for this interactive workshop, where he shares the principles and practices that underlie the Integrative Restoration - iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation protocol that he’s developed over the past 46 years, which will expose you to a tapestry of tools that you can interweave into your personal or professional practices of hatha yoga, pranayama and meditation, as well as into your daily activities, relationships, or therapeutic-oriented work with students or clients.

iRest Meditation is a research-proven meditation protocol that is being used worldwide to relieve stress, nourish deep relaxation, restore vibrant health, sound sleep and resiliency, heal trauma and physical and mental issues, recover well-being, as well as to awaken to our underlying essential undivided wholeness with all of life. Grounded in over 25 research studies, the US Army Surgeon General and the Defense Centers of Excellence have recognized iRest as a Complimentary Alternative Program for healing chronic pain and PTSD, and restoring resiliency and well-being. iRest is making substantial contributions to the recovery of wounded veterans, and is now being taught in over 60 VA and Department of Defense sites in the US. With over 2500 trained practitioners, iRest is being taught at hospitals, clinics, and yoga centers worldwide. iRest offers a veritable 'Google-Map' for those traversing the complex road of health, healing, well-being, and awakening.

Through interactive dialogue and in-depth guided iRest meditations, Richard shares how this approach to meditation, health, and healing unfolds in distinct phases along a 38-step map of meditation drawn from the ancient teachings of Samkhya-Patañjali, Advaita, and Kashmir Nondual Yoga that incorporates three levels of mindfulness, seven core principles, and ten key practices. Richard will address current research on the neuroscience of meditation that underscores iRest. Class handout includes the map of meditation, foundational principles and practices, and resources for continuing your ongoing practice and learning.
