Based on the ancient teachings of meditation, iRest is an evidence-based transformative practice that leads to psychological, physical, and spiritual healing and well-being.

iRest provides you with tools to help you relax deeply, release stress, increase resiliency, improve your interpersonal relationships and provide you with greater mastery and control in your life.

iRest nourishes noble qualities such as joy, peacefulness, empathy, forgiveness, patience, and loving-kindness toward yourself and others. People who practice iRest report:

  • Reduced depression, fear, and anxiety

  • Reduced insomnia and levels of stress

  • Reduced chronic and acute pain

  • Greater ability to relax and enjoy life

  • Improved interpersonal relations
