Rest and Restore

If you feel overwhelmed, tired or worried by changes in your life, don't worry - you're not alone. The good news is there are practices we can cultivate to help us restore ourselves.

At this special event, rest expert and yoga teacher Octavia Raheem will share how restoring your body, mind and spirit can be an act of courage, empowerment and hope. This is especially important when you're facing challenging times.

Changes in our lives present an opportunity to pause and gather our energy to respond to whatever lies ahead. Octavia will share her powerful, warm-hearted ideas to help you bring more purposeful rest and reflection to the changes and spaces in your life.

And when rested and restored, you'll be better placed to help others too!

This conversation with Dr Mark Williamson was recorded at a live Action for Happiness event on 9th Feb 2023.
