One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned in my life is the importance of giving myself the space and permission to rest. After all, I was (and we are) taught to glorify hard work and busy-ness. But if we want to live a life that is in alignment with our truth, the most spiritual thing we can do is rest when we need to. In this solo episode, I’ll introduce a concept called yielding and share exercises to help you embody it. Yielding - which, is a term from Body-Mind Centering - is a process of finding the support to rest, and of trusting that new energy will arise when we do so. Having made it to the other side of January 2020, here’s my radical call to non-action for all of us: let’s spend February yielding and resting, and trust that is the perfect thing to (non-)do.
