Spacious Emergence

This 36 minute recording includes a ~31 minute heart centered practice followed by an original poem and comes from the end of my favorite month of the year - May. As usual the practice draws from multiple lineages and inspirations. Notably I borrow some language from Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and the rotation has elements derived from the Vijñāna-bhairava-tantra exploring the body as space.

Girl Named Sally

Delivered to a small group including a Nidra newbie and a pregnant mother this Nidra draws on almost countless inspirations. The name of the Nidra refers to the multi-sensory evocational portion which is presented as a story about a girl named Sally. The settling has language borrowed from Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, the sensing and evocation draws inspiration from Swami Janakananda, the story is a NLP hypnotic metaphor, and Non-Dual Tantrik philosophy and cosmology informs and inspires the whole practice.

Joy of Awareness 10/11/2018

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.

Sensations + Images

This ~17 minute practice has an emphasis on the core your being and was recorded live at The Arcata Presbyterian Church in Humboldt County, California on 3/29/2018 for a hatha/nidra combo class. The practice combines a juicy rotation of consciousness inspired by Richard Miller and Satyananda style archetypal images. This is one of my favorites to practice myself.
