Open Yoga Therapy Rx™ Weekend Workshop

January 4-5, 2020
Therapeutic Aspects of Meditation & Intro to Yoga Nidra
with Dr. Richard Miller at Loyola Marymount University


This workshop begins with showcasing Direct Path teachings that enable you to recognize and experiencing, within yourself “this” that is already and always whole, healthy, healed and perfect, just as it is, just as you are, so that you can then pass this recognition on to your clients and students. With this realization in place, this workshop will then showcase Progressive Path teachings that you can utilize to then help your clients face what is in need of healing—aspects within their body, mind, emotions and beliefs that underlie whatever condition they’re bringing into your office for healing.

Dr. Richard Miller will present in-depth direct and progressive teachings drawn from the wisdom traditions of Samkhya, Patañjali, Advaita and Kashmir Nondualism. These teachings form the basis of the research-based Integrative Restoration – iRest® Yoga Nidra program of meditation that Richard has developed. He will present iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation as a comprehensive program for promoting health, healing resiliency and well-being.

This is a two-day workshop, meeting on Saturday, January 4th 1-6pm, and Sunday, January 5th 10am-5pm at Loyola Marymount University. Registration fees are refunded only if the workshop is canceled; no refund for partial attendance or no-show
