Intention is a distinct component of the Recovery Nidra experience and becomes a biological and psychological messaging system, demonstrating practical and worthwhile, productive and beneficial outcomes.

The ancient principles of Recovery Nidra, are an invitation to experience self-forgiveness unfolding within pure openness and awareness.
The heart opens unconditionally to felt knowledge, and forgiveness showers on every thought, leaving pure openness and awareness unfolding every time one visits oneself in this manner.
Recovery Nidra can create the environment for new insights to emerge that may have been blocked by holding onto un-forgiveness of the self.
Week three includes three 45-minute Yoga Nidra integrative experiences. Returning to the experience of true self, stress-free, without the need of outside substances, without the need to do something or be someone, or to grab or cling to a person, place, object or idea. Resting in a shower of self-forgiveness.
