    As a former insomniac, I’ve searched for years for recordings to help me get to sleep, or get back to sleep. I’ve created these 8 tracks to soothe, relax, and restore anyone who finds themselves in need of sleep’s powerful healing qualities. I’ve successfully taught thousands of people to sleep better, including individuals with severe PTSD, other trauma conditions, severe anxiety, and chronic insomnia.

    The first track, iRest Yoga Nidra for Deep Rest, contains most of the shorter tracks in the collection. You may find you like one or more of the segments of that longer practice on its own, so I made them their own tracks. iRest is a research-based approach


    that helps activate the parasympathetic nervous system. It has helped thousands of people to sleep more soundly, lower anxiety and depression, lessen chronic pain, and improve mood regulation.

    All the tracks focus on body sensing and opening up the focus of attention wider, thus shifting your brain waves, activating the nervous system’s parasympathetic “rest and restore” channel. Each of the tracks finishes open-endedly. That is, my voice doesn’t say “its the end of the meditation”, because many people find this wakes them up. Also, all the tracks except the Coherent Breath, have a gentle, ambient white noise in the background.

 


 

 


This easy-to-follow guided breath practice is based on scientific evidence that shows that breathing at a rhythm of five even exhalations and inhalations per minute slows heart rate and brings the entire nervous system into a state of relaxed alertness.Coherent breath is an excellent, simple tool most anyone can use to feel better, sleep better, and be at ease in their body and life. This recording also includes a simple additional technique called breath moving.

Integrative Restoration (iRest℠) is a transformative guided meditation practice that fosters the health and well-being of body, mind and spirit. It was developed from ancient yoga nidra by Dr. Richard Miller, a clinical psychologist, over a period of more than 20 years. iRest℠ meditation requires no prior meditation experience. Practitioners of iRest℠ report decreases in insomnia, depression, anxiety, and chronic pain; and increases in energy level, sleep, comfort with situations they can’t control, and a general sense of physical and psychological

well-being. This CD contains 10 tracks. The first track is introductory and can be skipped as soon as you are familiar with it. All the tracks can be listened to each time you practice, or you can create a “playlist” of specific tracks you want to focus on, depending on intent and time availability. Once you get to know the practice, feel free to experiment with and customize the use of the CD to suit your needs.

iRest℠ was first researched in 2006 by the US military with service members returning from battle with combat stress. It is currently being researched by the Veterans Administration. and other healthcare organizations, and is being used in a growing number of military and civilian organizations with people who have PTSD, depression, substance abuse, chronic pain, and sleep problems.
