Yoga Nidra--Online Evening Meditation

Online event

Yoga Nidra is one of my favorite practices (I love it). Yoga Nidra—known as yogic sleep—is a meditation and conscious relaxation practice that is intended to induce total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation.

Yoga Nidra is relaxing, restorative, and restful, but is also known for easing insomnia, decreasing anxiety, and reducing stress.

Please join me in an hour of Yoga Nidra. Connect with us through Zoom or dial in (see below)...and if possible, arrange to be able to hear the meditation while lying down.

We are offering this meditation on the 2nd and 4th Saturday mornings of each month. I hope you will join us!

STEPHEN DARNELL is a spiritual and passionate composer and performer of the Native American style flute, Ancestral Pueblo style (Anasazi) Flute, Irish Whistle, Didgeridoo, Armenian Duduk, Shakuhachi Flute, and Moyo Drum, whose music is a place of peace, a place of rest, and a place for coming home. Inspired by musicians such as Douglas Spotted Eagle, Michael Allen, Rafael Bejarano, and Ash Dargan, Stephen has embraced the melodic wonder that the flute and didgeridoo has to offer, opening a realm of soulful and empowering creativity.

Classically trained, Stephen has always had music as an important part in his life beginning in the 7th grade where he mastered the French horn playing through the first years of college. During this time, and well into his adult life, he has had a heartfelt passion for the handbells with over 40 years of experience both as an ensemble player and soloist.

Since the turn of the century his interest has expanded to encompass world music including Irish folk music, mastering the art of the penny whistle playing at local Irish pub sessions. Discovering new treasures within the World music scene, Stephen has become learned on the Didgeridoo, Armenian Duduk, and the Native American style Flute embracing a new home where soulful creativity and soothing mindfulness offers the encouragement and inspiration to play from the heart.
