Radical Rest Circle @ The Yurt

Radical Rest Circle @ The Yurt

The myth of society tells us that if we work hard enough, we will deserve rest. Rest, we’re told, is a privilege—a luxury—when in fact, it is a human right. The systems around you will tell you that you are a machine. You are not a machine. You are a human being. You are a living, breathing, infinite part of nature, and all things in nature need rest.

Rest is essential to our well-being; it is a principle of radical self-care. But we need to feel safe to be able to rest, and we have to acknowledge that not everyone feels safe enough to rest. Not everyone has an equal opportunity to rest.

In this circle, we will explore the 7 types of constructive rest as a human right and an intentional practice. We’ll reflect on the barriers holding us back from allowing ourselves permission to rest. We’ll identify our intention for seeking more rest and go into some deep self exploration with a restorative Yoga Nidra practice.

We will go through some self-care practices in the session that can be taken into your everyday life to help soothe and relax your nervous system when you need it.

We will also explore a very important type of rest – ‘creativity’ – to calm your mind, spark your creative flair and nourish your soul with some arts and crafts, specifically designed to soothe and connect you to yourself and nature.

Rest has to be an active choice. You have to choose rest so that you don’t burn out. You have to choose rest so that you take care. You have to choose rest so that we can dismantle the forces telling us rest is a privilege. And with time, you won’t feel like you have to do anything to deserve this practice. You and rest will just be.

This is a donation based event as I would like everyone to experience it, any donation is appreciated and will go towards the yurt hire.

Just let me know if you’d like to attend and I’ll add you to the list and send you more details.
