Saturdays, January 19 – February 9, with John Campbell
Yoga nidra is a meditation practice with roots reaching back to the time of the Upanishads. Today, Yoga Nidra is widely used both as a meditation practice and as a therapeutic tool for psychological trauma and distress. Yoga Nidra produces a state of deep relaxation similar to sleep, but in which we remain aware. From this place of stillness, we notice and welcome the comings and goings of different aspects and layers of the self. These aspects/layers (referred to as the “koshas”) include physical sensations in the body, the breath, feelings, emotions, thoughts, beliefs and the sense of the self as separate. Each class in the series will touch on most, if not all, of the koshas, however, there will be an emphasis on a different kosha each week.
