Resting to Rise
November 8, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm ESTFree
Want to change the world – but are bone tired? Participate in a community nap with other motivated but weary folks interested in personal growth for social transformation. Fuel leadership development with this introduction to Daring to Rest – a profoundly healing practice that involves lying down, resting, and resetting one’s nervous system to plug back into personal power.
For this session, you’ll need a comfortable, quiet place to lie down – a chair, the floor with padding, or a leaned back seat of a car can all do. A blanket, eye pillow, and small object from nature that you find pleasing and can fit in the palm of your hand (like a small stone) are also supportive, though not necessary. Most importantly, bring your tired, curious self and a desire for personal and collective change.
Trainer: Benita Jackson is Professor of Psychology at Smith College, Director of the Society, Psychology, and Health Laboratory, and a Trained Facilitator in the Daring to Rest methodology.
