Death:OK (Let’s Talk About It) is a day of inspiration, information, and connection taking place October 17, 2015 on the campus of Reed College in Portland, Oregon. As part of an ongoing series profiling our presenters, we’re pleased to introduce you to…
Camella Nair, presenting “Yoga Nidra: Continuity of Consciousness between Worlds.”
Imagine remaining tranquil and calm in the midst of fear surrounding death and dying. Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice where we explore on an experiential level, the place between waking conscious and sleep. It allows us to explore the bliss of deep relaxation which brings calmness and clarity. We cannot stop the process of change, but we absolutely can prepare ourselves for change, and the insecurity it can bring along with it.
This yoga class does not require any previous yoga experience. Just an open mind and a desire to imagine a time when you can let go of your physical body, or that of a loved one.
Dress comfortably and bring a pillow and a blanket.
