heART of Rest began as a tiny seed planted back in 2012 when the founder Lani was on a meditation retreat. Lani saw the need for more places where like hearted community could gather together as they journeyed into the richness of the inner world of yoga, meditation and the awakening of the heart. The seed has slowly grown into a nature based space bringing together practitioners and students who are drawn to a slow, quiet, introverted, sensitive and empathic way of life.
Together we stand for the Way of Rest. Where busyness isn’t the symbol of success but whole heartedness is.
Connection to Deep Rest at it’s core. This is a space to share ceremony, emerging research, guided meditations, yoga, relaxations & inspiring stories of beautiful people embodying the way of Rest. As the western world seems to get a little crazier day by day wanting more, doing more, achieving more, more, more, more there is a consistent theme that runs where people are just tired – tired physically, mentally and emotionally.
Why is it that giving ourselves permission to rest seems so elusive? How do we really connect to the rest and unwavering peace of mind we so desperately crave?
As a collective it’s time we choose to make Rest a valuable part of our daily lives and define what real Rest looks and feels like. There is an Art (or is that Heart) to Resting, that is deeply connected to our creativity and exists in every exquisite breath if only we are willing to slow down enough to feel & appreciate it.
Where there is a backlog of stress & trauma held in the body (the body really does keep the score) we often need practical & playful ways to release tension and learn how to come ‘home’ into our bodies and this is where the practice of yoga, movement, breath and sound can be so powerful.
We hope this space will inspire you to explore the beauty of Resting and the magic of embracing yourself completely, in all your wonderful human messiness. Follow your bliss, your highest excitement and know that ALL of you is welcome here. May we all know the sweetness of resting in the Heart and the safety of being at home in our body.
Eternal love & gratitude
