What would your life look like if your body and mind were deeply rested?
How would you tend to yourself, your loved ones, your tasks?
Difficult questions to answer.
Because structures of overworking, social media addiction, and fast paced grind culture are holding us in a state of constantly being active, constantly having to produce, being too exhausted to even feel what we really want and need. Rest is a revolutionary act and therefore a political tool to counteract the systems that make us believe we are only worthy when achieving something, making us feel guilty for taking a time out, to rest. Slowing down means to reconnect with ourselves and allows us to feel a greater sense of stability, peace and clarity in all aspects of our life. Resting is a portal for healing and self-connection – available to all. Inspired by Audre Lorde, Tricia Hersey, Tracee Stanley-Newell and many more, Isabelle Dikumbi has created “The Rest Bath.”
THE REST BATH is a workshop to let yourself be soothed by slowness and ease. Here, you will receive impulses and inspiration for creating your own rest practices as we indulge in breathing, soft movement, and visualization. You are also free to do nothing at all, or simply nap. A space to slow down and reconnect with your soul rhythm. Taking a bath in the softness of just being.
The workshop language is English. Duration: 2PM – 5 PM. Admission: free
