An introduction to iRest sleep meditation course.
 
A total of 18 hours of tutorial and meditations. 
There is a CD version available as an in-cell pack or as a download or with a memory card headset for people in the community.
Thrive Inside offers a range of courses for residents in custody and people in recovery from addictions to support the well-being of residents and prison staff. 

 

While one-off workshops or sessions can be arranged, participants get the best results from regular weekly groups.

 

For example, the standard rolling 8-week course is delivered as a two to two and a half hour session each week to fit with the prison free-flow regime. They are supported by the workbook, handbook and 4 Cd's as in-cell pack which residents can use to practice in their own time and environment.

 

Shorter lunchtime sessions of 30 minutes can be made available to support the staff.

Plans are in place to offer further material and teacher training programmes in the future. 

 

In addition to courses, more information is available about iRest meditation in the book The iRest Programme for PTSD by Dr Richard Miller, PhD, available from Amazon.
