Yoga Nidra is the Yoga of Sleep - in part because it induces a particular rhythm in the brain that brings on the hypnagogic state which is deeply relaxing, restorative and healing (so much so that 20 minutes spent in Yoga Nidra is said to offer the equivalent of 4-6 hours of sleep). It is also known as such because most of us sleepwalk through our days - engaging in our lives with a fraction of the consciousness available to us. This practice is intended to reawaken consciousness in every cell of the being. It helps dissolve the accumulated residual stress and tension that have taken up residence in the physical as well as more subtle bodies and it is a potent and transformational practice.

The Plant Medicine
Luminous Moon Oil
The Luminous Moon Essence Oil is created during the New Moon then steeped in Reiki life force energy with the intention to soften, release, and transform us for the highest good. The essential oil blend is calming and grounding and helps open the 3rd eye portal to the higher self. Gem essence of smokey quartz may be used as a tool to move deeper into the meditative or journey state during full moon ceremonies, sadhana, or private meditation practices. Also makes for a beautiful and unique perfume.

How to use your Medicine Box
In preparation to take in Laurie’s Yoga Nidra Practice (do some or all of the following):
Take 1 dropper full of Naya Nostrum in 4 ounces of tea, water, juice.
Light up the palo santo stick over the candle’s flame. Wand the smoke over your body and auric space.
Apply Luminous Moon Oil to temples, wrists, neck and/or chest.
For Yoga Nidra, ideally we want to be reclined with access to a device in which to hear Laurie’s recording. Place a rolled blanket or towel under the knees, then recline comfortably with a pillow under the head, so that the shoulders can rest comfortably on a bed or the ground. Layer on blankets and socks..do what you need to set yourself at ease. Hit the play button, and move into the restorative depths of yourself.
NOTE: When you place your order, please leave us the email you would like the Yoga Nidra link sent to. If you need to send it via email, please direct it here: email@example.com.
