The R.E.S.T. Practice  

The Creative Route to Inner Peace

with Jane Douglas 

The R.E.S.T. Practice is more than a creative practice for inner peace. The R.E.S.T. Practice offers you a space to restore, re-balance and re-connect with the inner peace of your true self. 

As we begin to get back to our lives I can guarantee there is one thing in your armoury that you will neglect. YOU! 

This practice elegantly and joyfully opens the doors within so that you can:

 

  • Live your life from a place of authenticity, truth and peace

  • Rest your overworked nervous system, bringing your tired mind and body back to life

  • Find a place of true refuge, one that lets you know that you are okay - even when everything is telling you it’s not 

  • Connect to others on their journey, so that you know you are not alone, that you belong

  • Build the inner resilience you need for when the going gets tough

  • Find your way back to centre when the challenges of life throw you off course

  • Re-kindle your energy when it dwindles in the busyness of the world

“You will only grow and thrive when you get back to the inner peace of who you are. Your energy and inner peace will disintegrate when you wander away from yourself”

 

If you are going to grow and thrive, then you need to be able to quieten the noise of the world and adopt a practice that allows you to open up a space in which you can be without judgment. Having a space in which you can slow down enough to ask the questions that will continually illuminate your path is vital. It is only when you are able to create such a space that you can deepen the conversations you have with yourself and through this intimate dialogue, dig more carefully into the hidden resources that your true self holds and find the peace within.

 

The R.E.S.T Practice blends a mindful inquiry process with creative journaling techniques to bring you a simple to learn practice that will enable you to create this space and find your way back to restoring inner peace no matter what your external circumstances. 

What is The R.E.S.T. Practice?

The R.E.S.T. Practice is redefining what is to have a practice. 

This innovative four-step journaling practice harnesses the power of creativity and mindful inquiry to guide you into a space where you will be able to re-connect with the inner peace of your true self.

 

Step One RECOGNISE

This first stage of the R.E.S.T. Practice involves identifying the ways you block access to your inner peace. This means recognising something that has been cropping up in your day-to-day life. The first step to reconnecting with the inner peace of your true self is to recognise the ways you are blocking access to it! Our special crib sheet will help with this.  

 

Step Two EXPLORE

The Explore stage of the practice is about mindfully exploring how your blocks affect you and the specific ways they block access to your true self. Our guided questions are designed to help you.

 

Step Three SURRENDER 

The Surrender stage of the practice involves letting any thoughts, emotions, feelings, or sensations simply be there, without trying to fix, fade or avoid anything. Here you will be encouraged to let your feelings and sensations be as big as they want to be. This is all about healing the blocks that get in the way of you connecting to your true self.

 

Step Four TRANSFORM 

The Transform stage of the R.E.S.T. Practice is all about listening to the inner peace at the core of your being and hearing the messages that lie there. This step is not only about finding the peace within but also about releasing vital energy. Our wonderful booklet of words and images will guide you.

The Power of Creativity

It is my profound belief that creativity is a powerful vehicle for transformation, growth, wellbeing and inner freedom and whether or not you consider yourself to be creative, this journey will guide you step by step using simple techniques that can be mastered by anyone. Many of the participants who are on this journey would not consider themselves to be creative, many have not picked up art materials since school, yet they are constantly surprised and delighted not only by what they produce but also the power of creativity itself to open the doors within.
