I’m running late to pick up the birthday cake, my eyes alternate between road and clock, I’m trying not to speed as I rush toward the ferry terminal. (Well, truthfully, I am trying not to get a ticket.)

This imperfect practice, recorded the day before, was perfectly suited for my circumstances. It focuses on pairing a feeling of safety and ease with a difficult emotion while engaging it in conversation.
While our practice of yoga nidra is not intended to deliver a defined result, I must admit that when I started my engine on the other shore I felt infinitely better. May it be of service to you as well.
