Holding History: An Anti-Racist Exploration of Rest

As we explore and hold history in relation to how rest is viewed in our society, we will explore our relationship to restorative practices that feed our soul. Part of dismantling socialized systems of oppression that have been internalized is to experience respite and rest.
