iRest meditation is an
evidence-informed approach

Research has shown iRest to be acceptable to and efficacious with a range of vulnerable or challenged populations. This includes

ex-service personnel (particularly those who have experienced combat), people who abuse drugs and alcohol, and people who are homeless.

At the core of the practice is guidance that teaches skills for being still and at ease and dealing with difficult or frustrating emotions, which participants can practice on their own outside of class.
