Developing Interoception: Opening New Gateways of Perception
Leaders significantly benefit from interoception, the practice of body-sensing. It is used to foster a better understanding of how listening to the messages and subtle cues of the body, increases our capacity for creativity, connection, and empathy. Interoception is a useful tool that helps individuals learn how to act and respond to the world. The increase in empathy and connectedness also allows humans to strengthen their response in difficult situations, and promote healing from past trauma, abuse, or painful life experiences.

Fascinating approach and language around irest. I am very interested in working with the groups mentioned that benefit from the irest techniques. I would be very pleased to have further information in regards to measured results from working with trafficked peoples and veterans particularly.
iRest has profoundly changed my life in the nine years I've been practicing. I owe a deep debt to Richard Miller and these teachings. It brings me joy to see others benefitting from his wisdom and teachings.
