Wellness Talks: Rest as Action

FridayNovember 86:30 PM


About the Session

We need to talk about rest. Rest that has been relegated and overridden by the intense pace and the ever-increasing demands that keep us occupied in our full lives. Either full On or Off.

There is another way and our health, our vitality, our very humanity, depends on it.

Come to this Soft Road Talk with Neil and Melanie Kirkbride to discover how to rest as action – a choice to do something – not abstaining, not passive, not zoning out – opens us up to richer possibilities for enjoyment and replenishment, and a richer experience of life.
