I haven't listened to the CD yet, so I may update this review. I ended up getting this book because I saw an issue of Yoga Journal that talked about dealing with anxiety, so I bought it, and Yoga Nidra was mentioned, with this book (and maybe one or two others) recommended. I haven't added this to my practice yet, but I hope to soon. I could definitely use it. It's definitely pretty interesting.
I've never felt so much like I was perfectly ready to read and understand a book before in my life. Read every word, because every sentence contains concepts that will evaporate your trouble with the world. This goes on the read regularly shelf, plus it gave me a fantastic idea for a novel, exploring both transcendence and invisibility cloaks. Awesome. :)
Yoga Nidra is a form of meditation that you do in stillness, not the poses that usually come to mind with the word yoga. Reading Eastern philosophy late at night was a bit mind bending, but I like Yoga Nidra's focus on acceptance and look forward to practicing with the CD.
