This session is guided by me, Simone MacKay. I’d like to credit these teachings to the great Mystery that is Life. The teaching regarding LOVE comes from the Siksika/Sauk people and was passed to me through an elder and shared here with permission. I also use the words and structure according to iRest or ‘Integrative Restoration’ as taught by Richard Miller.
This live ~35 Nidra recording was inspired by the time in the yearly cycle just before the winter Solstice. It was delivered on a dark cold night in a chilly room to 10 enthusiastic nidranaughts including both returning experienced students and a lady who knew nothing about the class and showed up 2 minutes before this practice started. Settling > Rotation > Opposites > Archetypal Evocations > Breath Awareness > Open Awareness > Feeling State Evocations > Externalization.
This 30 minute live heart centered Nidra recording begins with a nice NLP influenced settling process and an adapted Richard Miller style body sensing practice. It then moves through Satyananda influenced multi-sensory spot evocations into awareness of breath. This practice includes spacious amounts of silence throughout The externalization process includes a strong rousing and experientially walks through the tantrik model of the “Nested Layers of Awareness” as explained in Tantra Illuminated by Christopher Wallis.
This 23min Yoga Nidra was recorded live at a Women's Yoga Circle at Happy Om studio in Norwich 20 October 2018 in the morning. It is a simple Yoga Nidra that invites the dancing English autumn sun to shine on each part of the body in turn. It closes with a poem from Lalleshwari which celebrates the beauty of the day.
This 26 minute Total Yoga Nidra practice is a gift to support healthy Menstrual rhythms: the key to optimum fertility. It’s recorded live during the summer in a women’s yoga circle in my rural yoga studio, so many birds can be heard outside the window!
