The first step in our collective healing is to enable deep rest for ourselves and for Mother Earth.
It is from stillness and clarity that together we can begin to restore balance and replenishment for all.
During the 7 Days of Rest, from January 1 to January 7, individuals and communities around the world will co-create a unified field of intention and action for the healing of Mother Earth and all Her Children.
The “Rest” that is invited also includes a variety of activities that can be integrated into time at work, at school, or at home with family and friends. Our primary objective is to create a sacred collective space and time away from the busyness as usual for us to reflect together, as a species, how we can realign with our hearts, with each other, and with the intrinsic intelligence and order of nature. Through co-creating a coherent field of rest, deep listening and benevolent actions, we amplify the emerging global culture of peace, health, cooperation, wise governance and reverence for all Life.
For 7 Days we join forces across the world to
~ connect in stillness, compassion and dedicated action
~ remove stress, noise and toxins
~ commit together to planetary healing
~ set the intention and foundations for co-creating a thriving world for all
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Each individual and community is encouraged to honor these 7 days in ways that are most meaningful to them, while connecting to the global field of consciousness. We encourage you to prepare for the event by sensing into and clarifying your intention for this sacred time and doing what is possible to create the optimal conditions for you to manifest this intention.
While the journey through the 7 days is a very personal one, we will offer suggestions for the days that provide an opportunity to weave meaning and deepen one's experience along different themes and through different gateways. A web page will be dedicated to each day with inspiration and offerings for that day that can be used in any ways one feels accurate for one's own path. A map is available for participants to find and create local and global virtual events.
With the completion of the 7 Days, from the 8 of January 2018, individuals and communities will be invited to continue to connect as a global community. We will begin to put in place an ongoing virtual community platform to enable a vibrant co-creative space where we can discover and share solutions and best practices for how we can support each other in our collective transition towards sacred stewardship of the planet.
PERSONAL PRACTICE: RECOMMENDATIONS
Silent time - alone and together, reconnecting to the sounds of stillness that enable us to re-calibrate with the wisdom of our bodies and nature.
Minimize all work, consumerism, media and social media activity – (if possible, a full consumerism, television and social media fast). This ideally means connecting to the virtual world only for the purposes of joining focused global meditations or programs relating to human and planetary rest, healing and replenishment.
Clearing the body from toxins and eating only plant based food – as fresh and organic as possible. Different dietary suggestions will be offered on the website for optimal detox and nourishment.
Breath, yoga, sound and movement practices that support the body's rest, healing and replenishment.
Meditation, prayer, intention setting and practices that cultivate deep listening, intuition and spontaneous visions.
Practicing gentle loving communication with one’s self and those in one’s environment.
Rituals dedicated to the healing and replenishment of oneself, the planet and the entire Web of Life.
Communing with and honouring nature, animals, the plants and the elements.
Journaling insights, dreams and intentions.
Connecting consciously to the 7 Day global prayer and meditation field either online or offline.
Practicing living in gentle, simple community and extending one’s field of compassion to all beings.
Envisioning a healed world.
Gratitude for all that is healthy and nourishing in one’s own life and in the world.

CALENDAR OF EVENTS
We will also have a calendar of events and guidelines for each day that you will be able to access through the menu below during the event. This calendar is not active yet.
Taking time at the start of the new year to rest calls to every part of my being, personally - knowing it also can have such a restorative effect , collectively, on all of Life and Mother Earth, how can we say anything but YES?
Collectively tapping into this purity of vision is the replenishment and inspiration we so desperately need to reconnect with our creative deepest selves, our beloved animals and all of nature.
Inspiration from the
"We need moments of quiet to support the world through a time when we seem to be losing our collective heads."
"Inspired and beautiful vision! Can't wait to participate....."
"Unifying, inspiring and much needed....looking forward to join together with other to come together and move forward together"
I so very much am aligned with this project/event!
Silence has always been where my deepest Wisdom has come from. Such a deeper need on our planet to slow down, keep it simple, focus on one or two things, mindfulness and REST.
Rejuvenated Souls are needed to co-create and build a New Earth. Rest, forgiveness, heart connection then we are ready to Collaborate and design and move through to the New Portal. Universe is waiting for us to understand it's Silence first to set the foundation.
An absolutely inspiring and beautiful vision! An initiative so timely and so sorely needed. Thank you!
