The R.E.S.T. Practice
The Creative Route to
Inner Peace and  Wellbeing

You may be a coach, entrepreneur, leader, educator, guide, creative, thought leader. You may be self-employed or work within an organisation with a social purpose. Whoever and wherever you are, what binds you is the desire to serve others and The R.E.S.T. Practice has been developed for you.

 

This innovative approach to creative journaling supports, nurtures, and develops those who are driven to make a difference in the world, using a four-step creative journaling practice that blends mindful inquiry with simple creative techniques and results in inner freedom, peace and Joy.

The R.E.ST. Practice. is not just about learning a transformative creative journaling practice, (and it doesn't matter whether you consider yourself to be creative or not) it is also about creating a space in which you can thrive and grow.

 

Let’s face it, rewarding and life-affirming though purpose-driven work is, it is also exhausting, plagued with self-doubt and often involves huge amounts of personal sacrifice, right?

 

So where do YOU go to look after you? To nurture yourself, to develop and grow or simply find the  inner space to thrive and grow? Who is it that looks after you? Supports you?

 

Leading, creating, guiding, holding, educating, innovating to make a difference, is not for the faint-hearted. It takes courage and huge amounts of energy. It also takes an ongoing commitment to nourishing yourself.

 

As those committed to making a difference in the world, our first responsibility is to ourselves. When we look after ourselves, we thrive and grow. When we don’t, we become shrivelled, depleted and disillusioned.

So let me ask you…

 

Do you crave a space where you can take time away from the demands of your purpose-driven work? A place where you can take refuge from the…

 

  1. Exhausting and never-ending demands of ‘being there’ for others

  2. Loneliness and isolation you can sometimes feel

  3. Relentless call on your time and energy

  4. Feeling of being inextricably lost and overwhelmed by the sheer volume of ‘stuff’ you must do/know or learn just to stand still

  5. Personal sacrifices that cost your own happiness

  6. Noise of your own thoughts and emotions

  7. Frustration that you are ‘not getting anywhere’ even though you are giving your best effort

  8. Pretence of a ‘brave face’ that tells the world you are OK when you are not

  9. Bone-aching tiredness from doing it all

  10. Fixing and firefighting

  11. Nagging doubt that you are not good enough

 

Do you crave a space where you can experience the nourishment, growth and awareness that enables you to thrive and grow? A place that allows you to find the…

 

  1. Peace that lies beyond the expectations of others

  2. Courageous voice that reminds you that you matter

  3. Unquestionable clarity of your inner and outer purpose

  4. Relaxation that exists beyond your striving and trying

  5. Belonging that comes without condition

  6. Support and holding of others

  7. Awareness of the ways you limit your energy

  8. Relief from the daily grind and struggle of fixing and sorting

  9. Joy of being seen and acknowledged for who you are

  10. Transformation that arises from developing your innate creativity

  11. Unfiltered voice of your own inner wisdom

  12. Freedom to rest

 

The R.E.S.T. Practice has been designed so that you can create that space you have been looking for.

The R.E.S.T. Practice is about carving out time and space for you to get to know and connect with the real you. It gives you..

A Space of Refuge: Sometimes it’s hard to take time for yourslef. Committing to a practice will help draw a line around this time, marking it as especially for you, your journal and your practice. Time to inquire into your own thoughts, find your own words, hear the voice of your inner wisdom. A refuge you own that lets you know that you are okay - even when everything is telling you it’s not. 

A Space of Connection:  Journaling is generally a solitary experience. With our private on-line community 'The Creative Space' you get your own time to create but you also get to hang out with others on their journey so you know you are not alone, that you belong. You will also get guidance and input from me (Jane). Talk about the best of both worlds!

A Space to Practice: Journal time is your time. No one is going to tell you what you have to write. But when you are learning a new practice it is useful to have a structure to lean into. A bit like learning yoga or any other practice for wellbeing it helps to have some repetitive 'moves' that guide your attention inwards. Once you have mastered the basic practice, then it is open to endless possibilities and you can journal in your way. 

A Space to Rest: Creative journaling enables you to ​rest your overworked nervous system, bringing your tired mind and body back to life. It helps you build the inner resilience you need for when the going gets tough, re-kindling your energy when it dwindles in the busyness of the world

Ten reasons for learning The R.E.S.T. Practice 

R.E.S.T. to Know:  One of the greatest gifts that you can give yourself is the gift of self-knowledge. All of your decisions, your dreams, your creations come alive when imbued with the power of the wisdom your true self holds. Your creative journaling, together with the guided steps of The R.E.S.T. Practice will help you to discover, recover and remember exactly who you are.

R.E.S.T. to Relax: One of the magical properties of The R.E.S.T. Practice is that it reveals to you all the ways you 'get in your own way' when it comes to relaxing. As your practice leads you on an exploration of your inner world you come to know your patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving and learn how to recognise and accept yourself as you are, not as you think you should be.

R.E.S.T. to Express: Your journal is a safe place for exploring everything that is within you. It is a place where you are free to fully express the real you without inhibition or second-guessing, without judgment or fear. In your journal you can say, do and be exactly who you are.

R.E.S.T. to Centre:  The R.E.S.T. practice is like going on your very own retreat. It is a practice that creates the inner space you need to be able to process your day and bring you back to the quiet centre within.

R.E.S.T. to Transform: The R.E.S.T. Practice is a conduit for transforming the patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting that no longer serve you.

R.E.S.T. to Think: The R.E.S.T. Practice invites you to work things out, to explore using guided questions to think things through, to wonder and to question. It’s the perfect place to untangle what seems a confusing jumble in your mind, and things often become clear as you process them on your page.

R.E.S.T. to Remember: The R.E.S.T. Practice will lead you back to who you were before the world got its hands on you!

R.E.S.T. to Grow: The R.E.S.T. Practice allows you to release emotional baggage and burdens you might not even realise you are carrying, that are blocking your way and holding you back from your personal growth.. 

R.E.S.T. to Be: The R.E.S.T. Practice is your practice. It enables you to say or do anything you want on your pages. There is room for all that is you – Whoever you are in this very moment, however you are feeling, all you have to do is show up to your practice and be.
