Description of Irest Meditation
A Proven Meditation Program for Profound Relaxation and Healing
Deep rest and relaxation are critical elements in healing―yet we rarely experience truly profound rest. Even with proper exercise and sleep, we continue to hold stress, tension and trauma in the body. Over the past 45 years, Dr. Richard Miller has developed a program for deep relaxation, healing, and rejuvenation called iRest (Integrative Restoration).
In Irest Meditation, he offers a complete training in this proven method, which is being used by the military to treat PTSD and has been shown through research to reduce depression, anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain―as well as improve sleep, resiliency and well-being.
Essential Practices for Resilient Well-Being
Based on a modern evolution of the ancient practice of Yoga Nidra, the easy-to-learn iRest program provides a flexible toolbox of meditation practices that you can incorporate into your lifestyle to carry you through adversity.
In these six audio sessions, Dr. Miller takes you step-by-step through a progressive series of guided exercises for managing stress utilizing the breath and body, decoding and balancing your emotional state, connecting you with deep inner resources that replenish your vital energy and sustain you regardless of your circumstances.
“The practices in this program teach you how to respond rather than react to challenging situations and emotions,” says Dr. Miller, “allowing you to experience all of life with unshakeable inner peace, mental clarity, and a harmonious relationship with the world around you.”
