Scoga Nidra. Scott Moore’s new book, “Practical Yoga Nidra” may be the invitation you need to find your own best way to practice.

Scott Moore Practical Yoga Nidra

My dear friend Scott Moore has just finished his first book. A friend’s life-dream achievement is a worthy reason to celebrate in and of itself, but also, this book is so full of practical guidance and timeless inspiration that it makes me beyond proud to share his news and his book: Practical Yoga Nidra: A 10-step Method to Reduce Stress, Improve Sleep, and Restore Spirit. It’s now available for pre-order on

Scott’s a master yoga nidra practitioner and teacher, but what I love about him and his teaching is that he both understands the power of a story and he is a fantastic storyteller. It is through his own stories that he really makes this work and his teaching come alive.

I met Scott about 15 years ago in Salt Lake City. I was training for Ironmans at that time and from all that training and years of not stretching, I was stiff as a splinter and bound to break. I decided I would incorporate yoga into my regimen to help my mind and my body both. I began a quest to find the one yoga class a week around which I would work the rest of my schedule. I went to several studios and tried out teacher after teacher. Most either looked down at my unbending body or bored me to distraction with strict, formulaic sessions. That was until one early morning when I found myself delighted by the welcoming instruction, the funny and thoughtful stories, the poetry (he read Mary Oliver that day), and transcendent clarinet playing (during Shavasana) of Scott Moore. Because of him, I was in. And as I continued to meet him for 6am yoga classes every Thursday, I told him that what I was doing was not yoga, it was Scoga. It was Scoga that I loved.

I invite you to now not just experience Yoga Nidra, but to experience Scoga Nidra. Because this book is his voice. It’s his take. It’s his storytelling. It’s his style. And all these make the treatment of subject matter different than anyone else’s. And all these are, in reality, welcoming invitations to make this experience uniquely your own.

Taking a break from Spirit Release and intrusive energy clearing

For the foreseeable future, I will be taking a break from all Spirit Release work to focus my time and energy on creative projects. While Spirit Release is both beautiful and necessary, it is an eliminative process, not a creative one. I’ve found that when I am very frequently clearing, it is hard to switch gears and bring new, imaginative, and bright things into the world.

Since my interview about Dark Energy with Dana Whitby on the Athena Rising Podcast in May, I have been overwhelmed with requests for clearing. Now is a time when this work is much in demand. To help meet this need more broadly, and to empower others to activate and clear for themselves and others, I am continuing to offer the New Lightbody Activation for Now and Lightbody for Clearing workshops to advanced energy workers. If you are interested in learning more about or scheduling either of these workshops, please do reach out to me.

In the meantime, if you cannot find someone on your own that you trust or feel right about helping you clear intrusive energies, you are welcome to contact me for a referral via my contact form. You do not need to share the details of your experience. I will simply be giving you the name of someone who may be able to assist you.

Thank you.
