A Day of Rest


"In Sabbath time we remember to celebrate what is beautiful and sacred; we light candles, sing songs, tell stories, eat, nap and make love."

Overworked? Stressed out? Exhausted? This seems to be the mantra for so many of us. As a culture, we have learned that action and accomplishment are better than rest and that doing something is better than doing nothing. But by constantly running at high speeds, we often times bypass the nourishment that would give us stamina, overlook the signposts that lead to deeper wisdom, miss the joy and love born of effortless delight. It seems we've become out of since with the necessary rhythm of life, the balance between effort and rest, doing and not doing. It is no surprise that every spiritual tradition has a Sabbath practice. It's a universal reminder to reconnect with the sacred rhythm of rest that our bodies and spirit so desperately needs to renew.

Ask yourself, "how often do I take time to relax, nourish and joyfully experience delightful uselessness?" That is what the Sabbath is suppose to be about... a time to deliciously taste the fruits of your labor....to literally bite into that apple and let the juice run down your cheeks, make love, give thanks for the bounty of the earth, connect with family and friends, read beautiful poetry, and let the world fall away....if only for a day.... an afternoon....an hour. According to my guest, Wayne Muller, "the sabbath is a way of being in time where we remember who we are, what we know, and taste the gifts of spirit and eternity."

The good news is you don't have to go anywhere special, or buy or prepare anything. You can start small. You can start right now. In our show, Wayne and Sheri discuss:

How to take Sabbath pauses throughout the day.

Using the Sabbath to awaken your sensuality and sexuality.

Creating a Sabbath table.
The Sabbath box, putting your day to day world away.
Simple acts of blessing which take an ordinary moment and make it sacred.
Pampering your body and reconnecting with your inner self.

If you are interested in rejuvenating your heart and spirit and bringing a sense of calm back into your life, this show is a perfect primer for you.
