What if you could reboot your health, tap into your creative self, reclaim your wild nature, lead from your heart—and still feel well rested? As modern women, we’re taught that we can do it all, have it all, and be it all. While this freedom is beautiful, it’s also exhausting. Being a “worn-out woman” is now so common that we think feeling tired all the time is normal. According to Karen Brody, feeling this exhausted is not normal—and it’s holding us back. In Daring to Rest, Brody comes to the rescue with a 40-day program to help you reclaim rest and access your most powerful, authentic self through yoga nidra, a meditative practice that guides you into one of the deepest states of relaxation imaginable. It’s time to lie down and begin the journey to waking up Though it comes from the yogic tradition, yoga nidra doesn’t look like a typical yoga class—the entire practice is done lying down. As you listen to a guided meditation, you’re gently taken into complete inner stillness, effortlessly releasing into a healing state that works on both cellular and subtle body levels. With Daring to Rest, Brody presents a comprehensive yoga nidra program that unfolds in three phases: rest for physical exhaustion, release for mental and emotional exhaustion, and rise for tuning in to the “life purpose exhaustion” that can come when we’re not in our full power. Each phase includes a downloadable yoga nidra guided meditation and supportive practices. “By directly accessing your subconscious mind, yoga nidra helps shift the long-held patterns that prevent you from stepping fully into your purpose and power,” writes Brody. “Now is the time to break the cycle of fatigue and return to your truest self—the woman you are when you’re not constantly exhausted.”

Niyanii’s heart beat painfully against her chest as the fifth man came towards her. His piercing blue eyes were icy as they stabbed trough her. She had never looked at a man like this before and she had to admit, he was something to look at. Cyrus started with her legs. They were long, well toned and so smooth. He watched her shiver and then goose bumps cover her body. Cyrus could tell she was strong and in complete health. He picked up her right hand. This girl was not meant for field work; perhaps a maid? But yet her hands were so smooth. Not rough. “So, what’s your bid?” He suddenly cupped one of her breasts. Niyanii smacked him. Everyone went quiet except for someone who was laughing at the back of the room. How dare he touch her like that! Cyrus looked down at her shocked. Those baby blue eyes were so damn beautiful and furious. She watched the guy pull a red money bag from inside his tunic and hand it to Raevin. Did the guy just buy her? Niyanii would have been outraged, if he didn’t walk over to her and pull off his tunic. Then he wrapped the warmed cloth around her. “Help me?” She whispered. He looked surprised, but those icy eyes turned into liquid warmth. “I’ll try.”
