Wednesday, September 18th, 2019 / 7:00 PM

Join us for an evening of peaceful kirtan incorporating iRest yoga nidra mediation at 5 Koshas Yoga and Wellness, led by Allison Zopel, Debby Krenz and Jay Coldwell on Wednesday, September 18th at 7:00 PM.

We will frame the kirtan this evening with an iRest® guided meditation practice, inviting you to sing along and:

  • Experience your Inner Resource of peace, calm, safety and security. For many this is a doorway to a felt-sense of Being in Awareness. We will chant Om Shanti.
  • Welcome all that is, including sensations, emotions, thoughts and beliefs, as messengers from beyond into our “Guest House”. Our chant will recognize our inner teacher, Ong Namo Gurudev Namo.
  • Experience Bodysensing, with a guided yoga nidra meditation from the iRest teachings. Let the mind exit thinking, and connect with a felt sense of Awareness.
  • Express Joy, as we slowly and quietly wish for the happiness of all beings – Lokah Samastah, Sukhino Bhavantu
  • Take our peace and Awareness into the world, joining in a joyful, Namaste!
