WE DID IT. Had an amazing birthday. Surrounded by love. And the icing on the cake? In honor of my birthday, the Daring to Rest sisterhood raised $2,000+ for a very special woman. Women from Finland, New Zealand, Sweden, UK, US, Canada, Australia, France, The Netherlands, Spain, and more. Literally, every hour throughout my birthday several $25 donations would come in from all over the world. Spectacular. I never doubted for a second the power of women to help another woman rise. ...

Friends,

For those of you practicing Daring to Rest and wondering what the Council of Women is, here's a beautiful piece of art created by @how.wonderful.life.is that describes it so well.

And here are her words:

...

"I'm doing a yoga nidra program called #daretorest It's a kind of meditation practice. One of the things is meeting your council of women and asking them advice if you want to. With me, they always show up, lots and lots of women. They aren't talking to me, but they're always singing & hitting their drums. I love that! They're telling me to believe in my drums, my way, my intuition. " @how.wonderful.life.is

Friends,

The nap trend is growing! The paradigm is shifting.

“What’s funny about it is, it’s like, the most old-fashioned thing in the world,” Ms. de la Cruz said of nap therapy. “It’s sleeping in a bed; but somehow it feels like the future.”

...

YES...napping is what we all did before our RHYTHM was disturbed by light pollution, cellphones, 24-7 work cycles, and cultural nap-shaming.

I think the cultural sway towards naps are our souls calling out for rest that fuels doing LESS. We want a BREAK. We want to DO NOTHING. We want PEACE and QUIET.

What do you want from a nap? And have you tried one of these nap therapy places?

Friends,

Thought you'd like to know about an online event I'm a part of...and so many other pioneers of holistic healing and feminine awakening. This event explores a fresh approach to healing chronic illness.

If there's one thing I know for sure, Daring to Rest with yoga nidra has helped so many women who have a chronic illness.

...

I believe all these chronic illnesses women in particular are suffering from are calling us to start befriending our body again and develop a deep connection to our feminine wisdom.

A WELL-RESTED WOMAN befriends her wild woman.

More details for this event are here: www.WomensWellnessCouncil.com

This beautiful poem was one of the many gifts Dr. Rubin Naiman offered during our talk on dreaming on this month’s Daring to Rest podcast.
https://bit.ly/2HyRK48
.
He read this poem in response to the question: what three people would he like to have tea with? One of his choices: the poet, Mary Oliver.
....
I’m always asking myself this question: who turns me ON? Who would I love to have afternoon tea with?
.
If yoga nidra meditation has given me one big awareness, it’s to stay close to what turns us ON.
.
Listen to the podcast to hear who else Dr. Naiman chooses. (And to hear his profound thoughts on dreaming and dream deprivation).
.
So who would you like to have afternoon tea with? Who turns you ON?

EXHAUSTED? LOOKING TO SLEEP BETTER, HAVE LESS ANXIETY, AND FEEL HEALTHY IN 2018?

Try a "Rest Cleanse!"

My superpower is to help women who are brilliant and beautiful reclaim their health and full power. So far my book DARING TO REST has helped thousands of women get the sleep they need to feel totally alive.

...

To celebrate the start of spring, I'm offering a special "REST CLEANSE" discount on my two popular online rest programs. They are both yogic sleep meditation programs that take you to a place of zero stress, where your mind and body are supremely relaxed, allowing you to completely drop the tension in your body and mind.

Just yesterday I was reading feedback from students who have experienced my yogic sleep programs and one person’s comment made me laugh. When asked what else she might have wanted to make the yogic sleep program better she said:

"Short of a personal chef, a masseuse, and a cleaning service, I can't imagine what else could be packed into this amazing soulful sleep program."

It’s true, if you sign up for one of the programs you won’t get a personal chef, masseuse, or cleaning service...but you will feel like a well-rested 👑.

If this sounds like it's for you - if you have been dreaming of giving yourself permission to rest - from today until MARCH 27th you can enroll for 25% off either program.

Go to these links for more information:

A Year of Napping: http://daringtorest.com/yearofnapping
Use discount code "IDARETOREST"

21-Day Gift of Rest: http://daringtorest.com/giftofrest21
Use discount code "YESTOREST"

Here's to you daring to rest,
Karen

PS: Please share this post or tag a friend below so they know about this spring discount!

New dates for the Daring to Rest re-treat! (yes, it's a treat for YOU!). Come heal your sleep and say hello to your well-rested woman.

https://1440.org/program/daring-to-rest/

In a world where women are expected to do and have it all—where speed is synonymous with success—it takes real guts to slow down. Women: imagine all you could do, be, and become if you were getting the best rest of your life?

...

In this 5-day workshop, Karen Brody, MA, teaches her groundbreaking Daring to Rest™ soulful sleep program for women—a three-step approach based on her book, Daring to Rest: Reclaim Your Power with Yoga Nidra Rest Meditation. Using the deep rest of yoga nidra, with complimentary tools including slow movement and journaling, you will learn how to:

- Enter one of the deepest states of relaxation imaginable
- Address stress and underlying anxiety issues with yoga nidra
- Hear your soul whispers and inspirations and share them with a powerful tribe of women
- Be a well-rested and sustainable female leader-one whose big dreams don’t compromise self-care.

No prior experience of yoga nidra meditation is necessary-all you have to do is show up, lie down, listen, relax, and let this ancient technique work its magic. Spend five days getting the best rest of your life, and leave restored to the vibrant and embodied woman you are.
