My journey with Yoga Nidra began nearly two decades ago, and although I might have dozed off during my initial encounter, it sparked a profound fascination that eventually led me to delve deep into this transformative practice. As the years passed, I immersed myself in the study of Yoga Nidra with a number of the main schools and methods. Parallel to my explorations with Yoga Nidra, I felt drawn to the world of entheogenic plant medicines recognizing a profound connection between these seemingly different paths of healing.
The power of Yoga Nidra never ceases to amaze me. Just moments ago, I emerged from a deep state of relaxation, feeling rejuvenated and grateful for the experience. Today, it began when I sat down at my computer, ready to dive into work, but a wave of tiredness washed over me. Instead of pushing through and forcing productivity, I decided to honor the needs of my body, which was expressing a clear message.
