These are the ultimate in the recordings. They are meant for a deep, long rest. It is suggested that you choose a position to practice these recordings in which you can be very comfortable. The body will release heavily into gravity and if you are not set up correctly, it can be uncomfortable. These recordings move through deep layers beyond the body and breath, with imaging and explorations of tension release in the psyche. It is not hypnosis as it involves both sides of the brain. And you are aware (albeit, sometimes sleepy!). These recordings can begin to address long held ideas and experiences in the body, while simply remaining aware. The gift of these practices; awareness. You are simply observing the deep layers of the self, and not reacting, fixing, blaming, etc. A true transformation is available here.
