Join Celia Roberts and Special Guest Dr Lauren Tober this April 2018
Clinical Yoga Therapy, Lucid Dream Meditation, & Yoga Nidra for Healthy and Restorative Sleep
Saturday 28 April 2018 & Sunday 29 April, 2018
Full Retreat Rate $245
This fundamental recuperative health weekend is aimed at anyone who struggles with, or is interested in any aspect of restorative sleep. There are perceptions in today’s society that we are invincible; that at the apex of this technological epoch availability is 24/7, service is on demand, and sleep is a negotiable entity, rather than a necessity. More detrimental to our health is that even when we are resting, we are not. Our minds are swirling around in anxious circles unable to switch off. This pattern of fear-based exhaustion causes our bodies, our holistic wellbeing to circle in suffering, rather than toward enlightenment.
Join Celia and Special Guest Dr Lauren Tober over two days to explore Clinical Yoga Therapy that opens avenues towards addressing sleep debt and Ayurvedic sleep philosophy; Lucid dream mediation that cultivates an awakening toward a space where reality and perception meet in non-judgmental awareness; as well as iRest hosted by Dr Lauren Tober founder of the Centre for Mind Body Wellness in Mullumbimby (near Byron Bay, Australia) and Capturing Gratitude, a free global photographic happiness project. I’m also the creator of several acclaimed online courses, including A Daily Dose of Bliss, Living Your Heartfelt Desires and Meditation, Pure + Simple.
There is an overwhelming amount of research towards the necessities of sleep and the impact a lack of sleep has on our quality of life. In fact, research has shown that without a minimum of approximately 6-8 hours sleep we begin to fall into a pattern that begins a vicious cycle of an ever-increasing effect of sleep deprivation (sleep debt). This is where the cumulative effect of a build up in sleep pressure causes the brain to be unable to make sense of the day’s events (the processes of memory consolidation and integration), or rid itself of toxic by products, leading to negative symptomology that perpetuates the inability to sleep.

This morning session will explore the necessities of cultivating healthy sleep through ayurvedic wisdom as well as opening opportunities of learning to create a yoga practice that assists in all aspects of restorative health. Celia will gently guide you through the wisdom and the practice, while acknowledging both the struggles and the benefits of working toward overcoming embedded sleep habits.
As the afternoon comes about, Celia will continue her immersive teachings by guiding you through meditations specifically refined for opening avenues to lucid dreaming and sleep yoga.
Recently The Australian Yoga Journal featured Celia’s Dream Yoga insight that follows her in depth knowledge of moving towards awakening in all aspects of holistic well-being. If you are interested, or have ever been interested, in learning more about Lucid dreaming, this afternoon session is the best place to either begin, or continue practices that beget intentionality in sleep.
Dr Lauren Tober will guide you through processes whereby integrative practices begin to invite inward connection and attention towards true heart intention. So too,Dr Laura Tober will bring forth meditations in which deep states of body relaxation combined with intense concentration awaken the spirit within. Dr Lauran Tober will bring a program based on the ancient teachings of meditation. iRest Yoga Nidra® is an evidence-based mind-body transformative practice that leads to psychological, physical, and spiritual healing and well-being (read more HERE)
This day will complement the teachings of Celia, and complete the teachings addressing sleep suffering in order for a sense of recuperation to be plausible for you in a culture of demand. Be sure to invite those you know who may also suffer silently with sleep deprivation.
Lunching each day at the Upper Brookfield Sanctuary
Everyone brings a small plate to share for lunch. It is a delicious affair. We love small and easy dishes; salads are always well received, so too small fruit plates, fresh breads, dips, and we certainly enjoy the creative plate! Feel free to contact us should you have any questions regarding food requirements.
