Rest Is Resistance: A Manifesto by Tricia Hersey

Founder of The Nap Ministry

In our modern capitalist world that prioritizes productivity and growth over all else, Tricia Hersey’s Rest Is Resistance “encourages us to connect to the liberating power of rest, daydreaming, and naps as a foundation for healing and justice.” Rooted in racial justice and liberation, this resource from the “Nap Bishop” could be a wonderful choice for engaging in discussions about rest as a spiritual practice.

10% Happier by Dan Harris
