We’ll pause at the waterfall to enjoy the scenery and hold a brief meditation session before making our way back down.

iRest Meditation

iRest is a deep meditation practice used worldwide for its positive impact on the mind and body. This practice relieves stress and pain, improves sleep, and helps reset your nervous system.

Developed by clinical psychologist Dr. Richard Miller as a meditation technique to help soldiers, veterans, and survivors of natural disasters, Integrative Restoration (later shortened to iRest) was designed to “help us to integrate emotions, thoughts, and psychology, as well as restore us to our true wellness as human beings.” (Learn more about iRest on our blog.)

Used in military and first responder settings as a top-tier approach to mental health & wellness, iRest is rapidly growing in popularity in our guardian communities. In the words of one of our GR Peer Leaders who is a trauma therapist & social worker and has worked in Law Enforcement & Fire:

“iRest is extremely helpful to relax & very beneficial as a healthy new habit. It’s worth setting aside the time — stop procrastinating & show up. This is one thing you shouldn’t wait to try.”

We hope you’ll join our next iRest Meditation with Annie:

WHEN: Monday, March 4 @ 7:30 pm ET

WHERE: Zoom

Note:

Participate with your camera on or off

Be comfortable — seated in a chair, laying in bed, or on the floor

Have a pillow & blanket available

No prior experience with mindfulness or meditation necessary!

3/5/2024 Writing Workshop

6:15pm – 7:45pm
Cost: Free
On 3/5 Guardian Revival will host a Writing Workshop at 615pm EST in Mahopac NY and on Zoom. For more information contact Ashley Rogers, [email protected] or click the link below.




Writing Workshop

Engage with literature & writing in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Some of us think that writing is only for writers — but writing is for all of us.

As Julia Cameron notes in her book The Right to Write: An Invitation and Initiation into the Writing Life, “I believe we all come into life as writers.” Whether it’s poetry, songwriting, or storytelling, the freedom to express and record through written language is a powerful thing. Join us at one of our writing workshops to discover, create, and express freely on whatever platform suits you best.

Hone your skills through exposure and analysis of fictional and non-fictional literature, as well as learning grammatical tips and tricks. In past workshops, we’ve discussed Theodore Roosevelt’s “The Man in the Arena” quote, the concept of “The Road Less Traveled”, “The Rose that Grew from Concrete” by Tupac Shakur, a poem by our very own Karl Rohde, and the “Invictus” poem by William Ernest Henley.

The goal is to explore writing as a wellness tool & creative outlet. Mike adjusts each workshop to the participants each time. We hope you’ll join our next session!

WHEN: Tuesday, March 5 @ 6:15 – 7:45 PM ET
