How to Fall Asleep
One of the most common sleep issues is Stage 1 of the sleep cycle: Drowsiness and falling asleep. Indeed, for many people, especially those suffering from stress, those who lie in bed worrying, perhaps about an exam or getting up to go on a trip or worrying about an illness, an injury, or something that was on the news, falling asleep can be a huge challenge. It can also be a challenge for many who are awakened at night, from a snoring mate, a crying child, a nocturnal visit to the bathroom, or a disturbing dream, anything that makes falling back asleep difficult.

In this presentation I’ll show you how to use specific techniques derived from yoga positions, yoga breathing and meditation to both fall asleep and return to sleep. After all, if you can’t get to Stage 1 of falling asleep, the rest of sleep is going to elude you. In addition, taking too long to finish Stage 1 deprives you of the value of the rest of the sleep stages, especially those that restore your body and restore your mind.

In this video I explain the differences between the two major styles of mediation, mantra and mindfulness as well as how to meditate using meditationPlus. Mantra, or focussed meditation has Hindu roots and is popular in Transcendental Meditation (TM). Mindfulness meditation, or Vipassana has roots in Buddhism. MeditationPlus is the combination of both types of meditation plus more.

In this video, Larry offers secrets for sitting comfortably while meditating. He explains how to maintain proper posture while sitting on the floor or in lotus. He also gives permission to meditate sitting in a chair, in bed or lying down if you that is what you need. The goal is to meditate, and more so, to continue meditating, and in order to do this, we must be comfortable. Sitting in lotus is wonderful, however, you will also experience the extraordinary benefits of meditation by sitting almost anywhere.
