YOGA NIDRA is a highly powerful ancient sleep-based meditation technique originated from the ancient yogic scriptures. Yoga Nidra uses the biological process of sleep to enter an evolutionary state of consciousness where one can awaken to their true nature. Every night when we sleep, we must do one thing; let go of our thoughts. Consciously entering this twilight zone between waking and sleeping enables us to rest more and more as the space of being beyond the mind, and less and less as the mind itself. Yoga Nidra is one of the most profound and direct channels for accelerated awakening, physical and emotional healing and the management of insomnia, stress, burnout, anxiety, depression and a host of physical diseases that result. Yoga Nidra transforms through the principle of density. Working with the body and mind is like working with a block of ice. Working with energy and subtle realms of consciousness reveals that that which appears dense and difficult to change in the waking state is malleable and easy to change in subtle realms of dream-like consciousness –like water.
