In the words of a current student enrolled on the course –
“Another factor was the depth of study promised by your training. Among other things, I read a couple of studies, before looking for a training, that stressed the physiological differences between meditation, relaxation, and yoga nidra, so I was pleased to read that you address the difference between meditation and yoga nidra in your course as well. There aren’t many courses out there that appear to do so!”
