Virtual iRest Meditation TAPS Together

add to outlook calendar add to gmail calendar April 7, 2020, 2:00 PM-3:00 PM Eastern

iRest meditation is a form of Yoga Nidra (the yoga of sleep) designed to combat symptoms of metal illness and trauma.

What to expect in an iRest class: 30-45 minutes of guided meditation

What to bring to an iRest class: As iRest is a variation on the yoga of sleep, please wear comfortable soft clothing. While you can do iRest while sitting in a chair, the experience is best enjoyed laying on the ground with a blanket for warmth, and a pillow under your knees if you experience discomfort in your lower back. Eye masks are also welcome.

Register in advance for this meeting. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

We extend this opportunity to participate in this event for military survivors only.

About TAPS Togethers

TAPS Togethers are one-day events across the country with a focus on bringing the TAPS Community together in an organized, social setting lead by TAPS Staff or Peer Mentors. Impactful experiences and organic conversations occur and encourage hope and healing when TAPS families are together. 

TAPS Togethers are a cost effective way to make an impact at a grass-roots level.  Examples of TAPS Togethers include: coffees, museum trips, Minor League games, horse camps, outdoor adventures, yoga, BBQs, potlucks, visiting your local county fair, and service projects.

If there's not a TAPS Together or Care Group in your area and you're interested in finding other local community support you can request a community resource report. If you're interested in starting a group in your area, the first step is to become a TAPS Peer Mentor. For more information about a TAPS Together or Care Group or becoming a peer mentor, please email communityrelations@taps.org or call us at 800-959-TAPS (8277).
