Nearly everyone I talk to is traveling somewhere or has just returned from someplace. Maybe it’s post-COVID pent up desire to explore, making up for months and for some years of lock down. At such a time it feels counterintuitive to consider going nowhere, going slow, being still, and yet that feels like the most healing medicine, a tonic for our climate that is on fire, grounding in a society hooked on speed and Grind Culture.
Whatever is important is happening in your life now.
Pausing to fully know and feel that moment without the mad rush to be somewhere, someplace feels luxurious, the ultimate adventure, a pleasure too seldom known.
“Rest is a threat…a deep declaration…a politics of refusal. The time for rest is now.”
—Tricia Hersey, Rest as Resistance, quoted from a restful retreat with Hersey at Omega Institute, July 15, 2023
