About the event
Just after the Leo full Wolf moon and the transition to the new year, treat yourself to some soul nourishment with this deeply restorative combo of Yoga Nidra and sound healing that will be the perfect antidote to your busy lifestyle. You'll get to tune into your Sankalpa (a “resolve” or as Rod Stryker says, a “heart-felt desire”) and then plant this seed of your intention in the powerful practice of Yoga Nidra, which means yogic sleep. It's also known as NSDR, Non Sleep Deep Rest and is basically a form of guided meditation you practice lying down. Once you’ve planted this precious seed of your intention, you’ll be able to continue to tune into it to guide your actions with purpose and commitment.
Ruby will guide you through the practice with the sounds of various sound healing instruments before a period of time with just the sounds. She'll be playing instruments like Tibetan bowls, crystal bowls, her Planetary Moon Gong and other instruments such as a rain stick, ocean drum and chimes. Time will be given at the end to either continue resting, or to spend some time writing down anything that came to you during your deep nidra and sound journey.
There will also likely be an intuitive energy work practitioner there to support the energy of the group during the sound bath with Reiki and other energetic techniques to enhance the healing potential.

- yoga, Pilates mat, or reclining camping ("anti gravity") chair if lying on the floor is difficult for you (optional thick blanket for extra padding)
- blanket and/or pillow
- journal and pen in case you'd like to write a bit after the experience.

More on Yoga Nidra: Yoga Nidra is a guided yogic sleep that allows for relaxation and enhanced healing, opens us to our inner guidance, and helps to integrate change by accessing the subconscious. Yoga nidra is a tool for initiating deep change In the root causes of physical, emotional and psychological imbalances as a result of stress. Yoga Nidra brings about a supported lucid dream state by the enhancement of the alpha wave state in the brain, a super-conscious frequency in the mind that releases tension, gives rise to enhanced vision and heightened awareness which then allows us to be more present in our lives.
Recently, this practice has been put under the umbrella of the term coined by Andrew Huberman, NSDR or Non-Sleep Deep Rest.
