A journey into the deeper human experience of rest

Human beings often find it difficult to befriend the in-between spaces in life, the times when no action is required and in fact what is needed is to cease our outward activities. A sense of timelessness can be frightening, making us feel  unmoored. Yet to rest is to engage in a vital conversation between what we love to do and how we love to be. The conversation of rest is not only the essence of giving and receiving, it is an act of profound remembering: imaginatively,  intellectually and physiologically.

We often berate ourselves for putting off activities on our endless to-do lists, but hating ourselves for our procrastination is a refusal to enter the deeper, foundational layer of rest from which true action can come. Rested, we can give up on our already exhausted will, and its endless need to reward itself through established goals, as the prime motivator of our endeavors. We become ready to freely participate in and contribute to the world, without being held hostage by it. We care again for the right things and the right people in the right way. In rest, we reestablish the goals that make us more generous and courageous, more of an invitation to others and the world around us. We become someone we want to remember, and someone others would want to remember too.

Please join me May 8th, 22nd and 29th to look at the deeper invitations of timelessness and rest, a beckoning call in our troubled times.

Three Sundays Testimonials

These beautiful sessions have buoyed me so through the months - now nearly years - of this pandemic. Your words have spoken to me for many years (The House of Belonging is still my favorite, all the pages well worn and the binding frayed). Your choices of theme and poems always seemed divinely timed to what I needed to hear, or to ponder. My creativity has soared, and I have been inspired to let go of old wants and dreams that no longer fit, to be less "hard on myself for wanting what I want," and to really accept that I deserve to have the life I want. Each time, I have been very moved by what you say and how you've said it. Thank you for being a voice of inspiration, kindness, acceptance, and honesty through this strangely beautiful and transformative time.

Tremendous possibilities now in focus, realizing the wisdom behind thinking and living with the theme that no matter what, “ everything is still possible.” Can’t thank you enough. Every session gets better and better.

Since I’ve followed your Sundays series beginning in January this year, I’ve gained perspective I why I’m still here (on the planet.) Because of illness and separation from family, I could not see beyond my own misery. Writing didn’t come easily UNTIL I stopped. Thank you for taking us deep into the inner journey. A new door has opened, actually it’s an old, old garden gate and my job was to untangle the overgrowth that was hiding it. Blessings!
