This 30 minute practice was created by Olga Chwa and delivered on the night of the 2020 US Presidential elections. This practice pairs radical welcoming with an awareness of opposites that invites the transcendence of polarities and denounces duality. This recording was made live in an online drop-in reset space for queer and trans bodies everywhere.
This heart centred grouding nidra was recorded in Hong Kong in February 2020 as a response to the fear anxiety surrounding the corona virus outbreak. An adaptation of Louise Hay's affirmation for transforming anxiety "I am at peace with the journey of life. I am safe" is suggested. The nidra ends with sending love out to Hong Kong, China, the world and oneself. Tibetan singing bowls are played softly in the background and birds are heard singing.
This 33min Yoga Nidra was recorded live at Yoga Nidra and Kirtan evening at the Bhakti Shala in Poland 27 April 2019.

It closes with a poem from Hafiz – All I Know Is Love weaved with Om Namah Shivaya Kirtan.
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.
