I was turned on to Dan Howard’s concept of Intentional Resting by Martha Beck (you can see it here in O Magazine). I have loosely practiced it over the last six months and I’ve spread the word when it felt right.
Today I looked deeper at the concept as I am supporting a friend through a challenging experience of being a caregiver for her sister with cancer. I ‘loosely’ taught her how to do it.
As I find that I want to support her energetically through this process, I find that I want to walk-the-walk for her (and with her) so that I can be a model and a guide…so I’ve signed up for the 30 Day Intentional Resting program. I can only see a benefit for me and for those I love.
I am more than willing to align with someone (Dan Howard) who has the mission of sending ripples of love through the world via intentional resting…AND it is a win-win for me because I’ll be loving myself too!
(PS if you think it is about taking naps…think again).
