Essential Practices for Resilient Well-Being
Based on a modern evolution of the ancient practice of Yoga Nidra, the easy-to-learn iRest program provides a flexible toolbox of meditation practices that you can incorporate into your lifestyle to carry you through adversity. In these six audio sessions, Dr. Miller takes you step by step through a progressive series of guided exercises for managing stress utilizing the breath and body, decoding and balancing your emotional state and connecting you with deep inner resources that replenish your vital energy and sustain you regardless of your circumstances.
"The practices in this program teach you how to respond rather than react to challenging situations and emotions," says Dr. Miller, "allowing you to experience all of life with unshakeable inner peace, mental clarity, and a harmonious relationship with the world around you."

I don't review every book--only books I feel strongly about--hence the many 4-5 star vs 1-2 star reviews. Just my opinions--hope they help.
Miller is both the author and narrator for this six part educational program specifically geared towards people suffering with PTSD. That said--the program would also be appropriate for anyone wanting meditation instruction with a focus on strengthening, stabilizing, and working with reducing and coping with all types of stress.
Miller developed the program for the US government to be used with soldiers and military personnel suffering from PTSD. The teachings are drawn from ancient Tibetan theory and practice but have been striped down to their bare essentials. This makes the information accessible to a wide range of backgrounds and belief systems. To put it bluntly, all the "woo-woo" has been removed. The listener gets solid, helpful and practical advice on working with stress and increasing resilience.
My favorite aspect of the program is that the end goal is to learn the practice and to be able to work the exercises on your own without the need to listen to the recording. Hence, self-reliance is built into the program. Much of this is based on presenting the listener with alternative or new ways of thinking and processing feelings.
A positive and easy to use program that I think is excellent for stress management with or without PTSD. Recommended listening.
One of the best and most helpful programs for emotional distress and PTSD I've ever come across. Thank you Dr Miller
