Resting seems like it should be such a simple thing to do and yet so many of us struggle to allow ourselves to rest. Many of us are not even sure we know what rest is!
We are living in a time when work, busyness and getting things done have become so feistized, that there is something quietly radical about stopping to rest. Particularly for men, since the popular narrative of manhood for so long has been focused on action as a defining characteristic of masculinity and because of this narrative it can be very easy for us to fall into believing that our worth as men is based on how much we do rather than how we are.
We move from a busy work calendar to a busy social calendar feeling rushed, tired and stressed. This state of perpetual tiredness and stress then limits our ability to show up as we really want to in the world.
Come join this circle as we explore our relationship to rest. Our aim, as always, is to broaden the scope of masculinity to bring in all of who we are as men, including our need to rest and be restored.
