Join us for an inspiring 6 week immersion into Yoga Nidra meditation 


Did you know that Yoga Nidra awakens the force of your soul? 

Your soul is the part of yourself that perceives beauty, consciousness and light. When freed, it's the force of transformation in mind and body that returns you to right relationship with life. 

When life experiences are too painful to process, they become buried in our subconscious mind and condition the way that we perceive the world. Apart of us stays frozen in the past.

This leads to a feeling that we're separated from an essential part of ourselves - and that we've lost a connection to our natural instincts, inner voice, intuition and inner knowing.

When the soul goes underground, it's like a death. 

We become stuck in repeating patterns of stress, body pain, anxiety, and depression that has roots in our memories and emotions. This is how we continue to live out the past.

We can apply band-aids to our symptoms, but nothing will change until we compassionately shine a light on our subconscious mind and heal the wounds of the soul. 

Yoga Nidra is an ancient sleep meditation that opens the doorway to your inner world. This practice holds you in a space of expanded awareness and inner stillness - where you can release subconscious stress and rejuvenate on a deep cellular level. 

Through immersion into practice, a healing process within you awakens. You begin to shed the patterns of the past that no longer serve you, like the wise way a serpent sheds her skin. 

When your vital energy is freed from the mind, it becomes a force of inner transformation and authentic guidance. 

You will realize a profound inner truth - that you don't have to continue to live out the past. That you can return to the fullness of the present moment, and create a new path forward.

Studies show that Yoga Nidra meditation transforms the neuroplasticity of your brain, regulates your nervous system, and repatterns the way you experience the world. 

It helps you embody the source of peace and joy that you have inside. 

What part of yourself are you ready to reclaim?

"Journey Into Wisdom deepened my connection to my inner voice on a profound level. It opened my communication with the different levels of my consciousness, and I feel more aware of the messages coming through. I feel so much more receptive than before. This program is a profound experience of wisdom sharing that helps you connect with your inner vision, true voice, and the clarity of your heart." - Lisa C.

"This training helped me with my own personal healing! The voice of my soul came though, and I’m so grateful! I never thought true healing was possible. I thought I’d be broken forever. I thought meditation and Yoga Nidra would be just another band aid- a nice lovely band aid- but a band aid. I was wrong! This training was a glimpse of what’s possible with regular meditation. Journey Into Wisdom is the best Yoga Nidra training out there. - Jo P.

"This program and the practices that I learned, were keys to opening the door to vital inner knowing that I have sought for years. Yoga Nidra has been a real gift, and having the support of a group led by Kristen made a huge difference in my ability to go deep and learn. Journey Into Wisdom is like walking a path with a caring and knowledgeable guide. This program was a full- being experience that can be continued as a practice that is deeply nurturing on many levels." - Sandra L.  

"Journey Into Wisdom is a beautiful articulate teaching of sacred knowledge, and a very powerful guide into a deeper understanding of all the layers of self, and how they all work together as a whole and how to incorporate them in daily life. And as a result, a calmer more quiet mind which makes you feel great! - Janice D.
