About 220 million people will experience a traumatic event and 20% of them will subsequently develop symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Rates of PTSD are even higher among US combat veterans. This dialogue on Embodied Contemplative Interventions features clinical psychologist and researcher Richard Miller, the Founder and Executive Director of the Integrative Restoration Institute. The episode begins with a description of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and then Richard offers an in-depth look at the iRest Yoga Nidra Program and its extensive use in military contexts and the Veterans Administration to help soldiers and veterans alleviate the negative symptoms of PTSD. For more than 40 years, Richard Miller has devoted his life and work to integrating Western psychology with the nondual wisdom teachings of Yoga, Tantra, Advaita, Taoism and Buddhism. It is an honor to have him on the Groundless Ground Podcast. For more information on the iRest Yoga Nidra Program and access to Richard's books and videos, please visit https://www.irest.us/
