Rick Ledgett- Show Notes
Quotes from Mr. Ledgett:
“I am a long-time/life-time Dallas Cowboys fan, which is just further proof of intelligence. Which is opposed to being a Redskins fan.”
“Let me just say, it (Yoga Nidra) works great!.... One way is that sometimes I wake up at 2:00 am in the morning and I will do Yoga Nidra for 20 minutes and I am back to sleep, with no issues and not needing to take any drugs.”
“… focused on the science behind meditation or more accurately, the science that is being discovered because of meditation. It was fascinating and it gave me, someone who is concrete and analytical, something that I could really relate to.”
“I think it’s great for PTSD. Back in World War I, they called it Shell Shock and thought it was a physical thing and didn’t realize it was a mental thing.”
