*From the comfort of your own home*
“Practicing true rest is a social statement. In a world gone mad with motion, it’s a subversive act, an act of cultural disobedience. It calls for a substantial personal and even spiritual shift that begins with the willingness to step out of the herd mentality. It invites us to march to a different drum, to the rhythms of nature, including our own true nature…” ~ Dr. Rubin Naiman

What is a sleep sanctuary? It’s a place people can retreat, in the middle of the day, to lie down and let go into the beautiful ocean of consciousness that is uniquely available in meditative states of rest and sleep – a ‘continuum of tranquility’, stretching from wakeful serenity to the depths of slow wave sleep.
