Presented is clear, and easily accessible language, you'll learn a ton about yourself. The exercises are fantastic and Richard's voice is so soothing. (You can download a few at their website for free.)
Spoilers: Yes, you are this time bound, frightened, excitable little being floating in an endless sea of change. But you're also this unbounded, unbroken, peaceful, joyful being fascinated by this game of life. iRest gives us all the tools we need to navigate the bumps and traumas in life without loosing our love of life.
Dr Miller masterfully blends background and factual information with real-life accounts along with simple, clear guidance to the practices of iRest. This is more than just a book with some interesting information – it is a complete manual for deep healing.
While the book addresses dealing with PTSD, its messages and practices are equally applicable to many other conditions such as anxiety, pain management and sleep disturbances, to name few.
This book is easy to read for those without prior experience in meditation and Dr Miller uses regular reiteration of key points to provide the best opportunity for readers to understand the principles and practices of iRest. Where it has been useful for the science to be outlined Dr. Miller has done so succinctly and simply, avoiding making this book ‘heavy’ with facts and figures, preferring to highlight basic points and providing extensive references for those wishing to delve deeper.
At the heart of this book is a set of 40+ meditation scripts that readers can use to guide their own personal practice of the various iRest tools. These scripts can be read through, read out by others, or recorded to be listened to as meditations at any time.
As a person with over 40 years’ experience teaching meditation, and several years practicing and teaching iRest, I am excited by the potential of this book and encourage anyone wishing to help heal themselves’ to start their healing journey today by reading this book.
The accompanying mp3 meditations are most helpful. (I think I purchased those separately at the iRest website)
What they say is true, 15 minutes of iRest meditation feels like hours of restorative sleep
