An Invitation to Deep Rest / November 13 - 15, 2020
The invitation to rest in times that appear to be threatening on many levels may seem counterintuitive.
However, if we wish to bring forth our inborn resilience, wisdom & love,
then resting into our true nature is indeed what is required.
So much of our being is invested in gearing up to maintain some sort of control in our lives.
The mind straining to understand & find solutions… the body efforting to keep up…
the nervous system using up precious resources to avoid our feelings…
What we may not realize is that efforting & resisting
actually bring us further away from peace and a capacity to draw from our deepest power.
The great news is that we don’t have to create a better moment.
All of us not only have the capacity to rest more deeply, it’s life’s greatest impulse.
Cost : $27 + HST
