We often think of rest as something that will come to us when everything else in our lives is complete: at the end of the day, when we take a bath, once we go on holiday or get through all our to-do lists. We imagine that we can only find rest by changing our circumstances. This place of rest is actually always available to us. It is a choice—a choice to be alert, to bring your attention to this moment.
This talk will provide practical tools and real time coaching to find rest in surprising ways.
