iRest Co-Meditation Dyad
An iRest dyad is a co-meditative experience in which the student is supported in welcoming and inquiring into layers of being. It's an opportunity to meet what is arising in the present moment from a place of complete wholeness. A dyad can be useful to work with anxiety, depression, pain, to tap into a deeper source of creativity in one’s work, or to investigate self-limiting beliefs and emotions. Welcoming old conditioned patterns, or some new surprise arriving in the moment, allows us to welcome our true knowing and discover profound insights regarding what action we may take in our lives.
