sondra-kornblatt-headshotSondra Kornblatt developed Restful Insomnia during a year of intense insomnia. After cures didn’t work, she discovered that deep rest removed stress, revitalized her, and opened the door to sleep as well. Using her experience in counseling, meditation, neuro-linguistic programming, yoga, and more, she developed numerous ways to descend into that renewing rest. She has helped individuals and groups change their relationship with insomnia since 2004. Sondra is the author of Restful Insomnia (Conari Press 2010) as well as other books on energy and the brain.
