Any proposal that offers rigorous tools of self-knowledge fascinates me.
Editorial Kairós HAS JUST PUBLISHED THE BOOK I have been working in for 6 years ABOUT YOGA-NIDRA, in collaboration with my collegue Jordi Isern; forewerd by Vicente Merlo Illo. It is included in their second catalog 2021 for Spain and South America.
Yoga-nidra, the yogi sleep, is a powerful tool for self-observation, discovery, and pacification. In an amazing journey of deep relaxation for which you only need to lie down and trust, Yoga-nidra takes you to discover and cross the mountains and valleys of the physical body, breathe with pleasure the breeze of the very breath of life, visit the landscapes of mental processes, wade through the currents of emotions that seemed insurmountable, forget the known places plunging us into the unknown and, finally, take shelter in that warm and safe space of our center in harmony. With extreme sensitivity, the author offers us detailed explanations about each of the elements that make up this technique, biological considerations and a vast reference to scientists or psychologists. In sum, this work constitutes a very useful reference manual both for yoga teachers, people who are new to relaxation and meditation practices, and for readers interested in well-being, self-knowledge and health.
