Permission to Rest
In this wild and wonderful time that we are living, there is a great emphasis put on DOING. We often define ourselves by what we've accomplished. We fill our days with the multitude of things we need and/or want to achieve. Even our free time we over-schedule and fill up with DOING.
So, when we take time out, when we create space to rest and renew we are committing a radical act, swimming upstream against the current of our time. Take time to delight in just BEING can often bring up "judgy" inner voices that tell us we are lazy and self-indulgent.
But rest we must. And by taking time out from our the busy-ness of our lives we reap a number of physical and spiritual benefits. Physically we activate our parasympathetic nervous system (PSN) and so experience improved immunity, mental clarity, digestion and overall sense of well-being. We are also offered the opportunity to touch our inner wisdom and feel deeper integration.
Come give yourself the gift of BEING and savour the transformative power of rest on Wednesdays from 6:00-7:30pm at Living Yoga Sanga in Mullumbimby, NSW, Australia.
