Charles Staples will guide participants in a session of Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra, a 1000 year old practice also known as Yogic Sleep, is a form of guided meditation that takes you from the Beta state (active brain waves) to the Delta state (the brain waves associated with deep sleep). In Yoga Nidra, this transition occurs effortlessly while you’re laying comfortably. One session of Yoga Nidra can provide the benefits equal to three hours of sleep.

Charles Staples has been a full time yoga and meditation teacher, and massage therapist in Chicago since 2012. He is currently certified in Bikram Yoga, Hatha Yoga, and Amrit Yoga Nidra.

Spiritual Life Coaching

Spiritual Life Coaching, also referred to as spiritual direction, seeks to awaken us to the presence of the divine or sacred in our lives. A spiritual life coach or director is a companion on the journey of discovering how God or the transcendent is present in our day-to-day lives, as well as in moments of prayer and meditation. Spiritual Life Coaching is open to persons of all faith traditions who seek to deepen their relationship with the divine, to know their true self, and to be in right relationship with others.

To arrange for a spiritual director, call the Center at 312.787.8425.
