Who would you be if you could get enough rest? Would you be more loving with your family? Have the energy to pursue your passions? Take better care of yourself? As modern women, we've been conditioned to think of ``rest`` as indulgent or even selfish. We're taught to put everyone else's needs first and fear that slowing down will somehow equal failure. As a result, women today are exhausted--and it's holding us back. Fortunately, there is a powerful solution that any woman can use to restore her vitality no matter how busy or overwhelmed she feels-- yoga nidra , the art of conscious relaxation or ``yogic sleep.`` In Daring to Rest , Karen Brody introduces us to yoga nidra through guided meditations and a transformative 40-day program. By directly accessing our subconscious mind, this practice helps shift the long-held patterns that prevent us from stepping fully into our purpose and power. This book teaches us to go to ``sleep`` in order to wake up, helping exhausted women everywhere break the vicious cycle of fatigue and live the rich, full lives we deserve.
