a three-part course:
Laying the Groundwork
October 20th, 7-9pm PST
We’ll begin by exploring the difference between sleep and rest, and why both are essential for wellbeing. We’ll look at underlying physiology and science as well as the role rest plays in nature and wisdom traditions. You will learn simple practices to ground in body, quiet your mind and regulate your nervous system. There will also be time for participant questions.
Making it Personal
October 21st – 23rd, self-guided
You’ll then be invited to connect personally with the material through self-guided practices. The at-home exercises are designed to help you tap into deeper motivations and cultivate conditions for a personalized (and enduring) rest practice.
As support, you will receive:
- The Let’s Rest Toolkit with practice instructions, reflection prompts, and resources.
- A one-hour video tutorial expanding on rest practices, practical strategies, and the use of rituals.
Immersing in Rest
October 24th – 27th, 7-8 am PST
For the final component, we’ll re-gather as a group over four consecutive mornings, emphasizing restorative practice and integration. The intention is to set ourselves up to experience greater ease in our days while fostering traction for a rest practice beyond the course. Morning sessions will feature guided somatic meditation, yoga nidra practice, and time for reflection and questions.
