iRest with Kim – 9am CT (1 hour) – Saturday, May 4th
“iRest helps you discover a state that exists between sleep and wakefulness where deep healing takes place.” –Richard Miller PhD
Integrative Restoration Meditation (iRest®) is a guided meditation that will ask you to rest back (seated or lying down) and open your senses to the present moment. As we experience present moment sensations, the mind and body are lulled into a deep state of relaxation that is similar to sleep. This practice offers much needed rest and restoration for anyone dealing with lack of sleep and stress. And, ultimately in this practice, we’re learning to remain aware and present in deep states of relaxation so we can meet and respond to all of life from this place of relaxed ease.
Breathwork for Vitality with Sarah – 8:45am CT (30 mins) – Tuesdays, May 7th – 28th

Walking Meditation with Joseph – Wednesday, May 29th, 6:45pm CT (60 minutes)
Walking meditation can be a potent form of practice to get you into your body. The integration of somatic and contemplative practices is a powerful combination. Joseph will teach us how to optimize this often-misunderstood practice in such a way that we find ourselves bringing walking meditation into our daily practice. Walking meditation is particularly useful on meditation retreats when one engages in extended periods of seated meditation. You will move a bit during the class so be sure your audio is such that you can hear it while moving about your space!
