DESCRIPTION

The Way of Rest gathers nearly 200 of Jeff Foster’s most inspiring essays, poems, and reflections on restoring and reviving ourselves when we feel exhausted or defeated. Drawing from his personal journey—including his own struggles with illness and depression—Jeff invites us to contemplate “the Way of Rest” and its potential to transform our experience of:

  • Imperfection—how we are “gloriously flawed” yet complete exactly as we are
  • Not knowing—how we come to trust in the greater intelligence of life
  • Melancholy and loneliness—how we learn to release the healing energies of “exquisite sensitivity”
  • Ordinary moments—recognizing and receiving “the closest thing of all”
  • Discomfort and discontent—how our frustrations become an opening to deep peace
  • Love—rediscovering who we are beyond our carefully constructed facades
  • Silence—discovering the vibrancy of living by letting go of thoughts and concepts

“I hope the words in this book inspire, challenge, and encourage you. But most of all, I hope they help you remember that you are life, inseparable from the power that grows the flowers and gives birth to galaxies,” writes Jeff Foster. The Way of Rest brings you his companionship and support whenever you need it most.

Great Book

I've purchased extra copies for friends. This is a great book. The format makes it easy to read even when you only have a few moments - especially early in the day.

A book of magnificent beauty...

...leading us into a place of ultimate acceptance for ourselves and the world, a ground upon which we then can rise as individuals and as societies.

This book is totally on target

I teach workshops called Doing the Work of Your Life: Moving Beyond Fear in Abstract Painting. It combines yoga before painting to quiet the mind. This book is succinct, poetic in the typical way that the author writes, and easy to digest. Why should it be complicated mumbo-jumbo? There are simple concepts, although difficult to practice. Letting go of fear and just letting go in general... just being where you are at the moment and noticing your body and allowing it... are such ancient concepts. I am really enjoying this book already... and it's nice to find a person who is saying the same things that I say to my students... trust yourself... and watch the world (as we know it) disappear. Namaste! And thank you Jeff Foster.

Please make this an audio too. I enjoy Jeff Foster very much but I'd like to hear the book. I'm not so good in reading English (I'm from Holland).

Greeting in love.
