Benefits

Heart-opening ~ Transform negative thought patterns ~ Relieve stress ~ Decrease anxiety and depression ~ Ease insomnia ~ Strengthen the immune system ~ Restore balance ~ Lower blood pressure ~ Calms the mind ~ And so much more!

How Does it Work?

While resting in stillness, you are systematically guided through a visceral experience of the five layers of your being: 

1. The physical body
2. The breath
3. The lower mind (the ego)
4.  The higher mind (intuition, the witness) 
5. The bliss body

Each layer is a doorway that opens into the next level.  As we bring deep awareness to each individual layer, the coverings dissolve away, allowing us to exist simply as our true Selves.  In this state of purity and authenticity, transformative healing can occur! 

how to practice:

Wear comfortable clothes, and be sure to bring layers to keep warm as the body cools when in deep states of relaxation.  Bring any special blankets, pillows, or eye pillows to maximize your comfort level.  Having a journal or a pen and paper with you can be a wonderful way to integrate the experience.
