Who is this course for?
Anyone interested in their mind, brain and nidra. It’s especially good for people who simply want to find out more about themselves and have a greater sense of well-being. It would also be especially useful for therapists and professionals who work with neurological conditions such as neuroscientists, psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, doctors, as well as yoga therapists.
What will I learn?
Would you like to feel better, to change your mind for the better? This is an invitation to explore experientially through meditative nidra practices based on understandings in the Nidra, Neuroplasticity, Mind and Brain series of courses.
This series of processes aims to integrate and experience the coming together of our surface mind with our deeper unconscious mind. These are done through meditative nidra itineraries which build on each other. They are deeply relaxing, refreshing, profound. They are transformative. They are unique.
There is plenty of opportunity for disucssion and to ask quesitons, as well as experiental learning and self prctice.The course will be reocrded and made avaolabel to you afterwards, so can can use the content again.
Have you ever wondered how our minds work? Have you ever wondered if by interacting with our minds at a conscious level we could begin a process of integrating the everyday mind with the unconscious mind? What would that be like? How could this work? What would this feel like through the processes of meditative nidra?
It is possible for example, to map the brain from the inside, to navigate its territories and to develop an ability to so with resultant calming of mind, emotions and thought, to do so as a replicable process, and to do so as a process or series of processes which bring about meaningful transformation, in many ways, on many levels. These range from the restful to the therapeutic, to inspired fusions of creativity, conscious and unconscious minds working together in harmony, bringing out the best in each.
Sleep alters for the better, with some people reporting being conscious for periods of time both in the hypnogogic states and when they are actually asleep. There is often a sense of spaciousness for oneself in this state, in which thoughts seem to slow right down. It is a useful antidote to being overwhelmed, as so many of us are with present events.
