Episode 3: Moving into the Heart of Mastery with Lama Rod
Welcome to the Radiant REST Podcast your source for all things yoga nidra, rest, sleep, and dreams. I am your host, Tracee Stanley and I believe that the unique practice of Yoga Nidra offered to us by the ancient sages, is the healing salve for our times. I am excited to share my love of all practices that lead to deep rest and all of the treasures that come from being rested. My new book Radiant REST: Yoga Nidra for Deep Relaxation and Awakened Clarity is available now!
About the Episode
Tracee Stanley speaks with Lama Rod Owens. They talk about how meditation helps to move out of depression and discuss the importance of lineage and how culture, ancestors, and descendants inform lineage. They acknowledge heartbreak, anger, and rage and how to unlock them through experience. They speak of what it means to return to an indigenous worldview. Lama Rod describes what the true meaning of apocalypse is and how can we move through it, and the value of mourning and how it requires us to tell the truth.
