Welcome to 7 Days of Rest & Reflection 2019!

January 1 - 7, 2018 gave rise to a unique global event that brought together individuals and groups in meditation, prayer, sacred ceremony and a range of creative initiatives dedicated to the healing and replenishment of the planet and all its inhabitants. Together with international partners and stewards from diverse sectors, and participants from over 50 countries, we co-created a global healing field of intention to “Rise in solidarity with Mother Earth”.


For January 2019, we are offering a space for 7 Days of Rest and Reflection. Through individually and collectively reflecting on our relationships and interdependence with the foundations of Life, we amplify our intention to restoring the sacred relationship between the Feminine and the Masculine, in service to co-creating a thriving world for all.

 

To join 7 Days of Rest & Reflection 2019 and to receive our newsletters and important updates, please sign up as an individual and/or as a community. You can also already sign up to offer an event you’d like to share.

Welcome to 7 Days of Rest & Reflection 2019!

As we begin to move beyond the 7 Days of Rest Global Event, we extend a heartful thanks to all who have contributed to making this event all that it has become! Today, 8.01.18 we share our intention to continue to build on the powerful momentum and growing community, and invite all to continue together in service of the healing vision.

 

Here, we share some initial ideas for moving forward, while recognizing that much that was seeded and that emerged during the 7 Days of Rest is still being revealed. We look forward to discovering and cultivating the rich field of intention and action in service of a thriving world for all.

 

 

1. 7 Days of Rest - Anytime, Anywhere
 

With all the inspiring resources that we have gathered for these 7 Days of Rest we intend to maintain this offering as an evolving self-retreat program and toolkit for anyone to follow at anytime. While certain materials may only have been made available for this week, when we have the infrastructure in place, we will include new offerings to be shared that can further enhance the experience and depth of this 7-day quest.

 

2. Rise in Solidarity with Mother Earth  #RiseforMotherEarth

 

One essential and powerful calling that has emerged from the event has been to create a campaign/movement to Rise in Solidarity with Mother Earth. The vision is to support and catalyze global awareness and action so that the sacred feminine and masculine can rise together in loving partnership and stewardship of the planet and all its inhabitants. If you would like to play a co-creative role in this campaign, please email us at info7daysofrest@gmail.com with the subject title: Rising in Solidarity with Mother Earth.

 

3. A New Social Network and Global Community Platform   

 

We are in the process of creating an evolving community platform that can enable diverse forms of self-organization and collaboration for the global good. This includes working with partners to support and co-create a web-space that hosts and gathers the emerging technologies that best serve the whole. We hope to be able to put in place the basics for this shortly and will keep you updated. Our intention is that this community platform will also create the foundations for implementing a new form of eco-governance as a way of organizing ourselves as a species that is in aligned with and in harmony with nature. You can learn more about the evolving ideas of eco-governance on our platform www.togetherincreation.org

 

4. Monthly Full Moon Reconnection and Attunement

 

Honoring the full moon opening of the 7 Days of Rest, we will continue to anchor our work around the full moon and offer a suggested area of focus for the full moon blessing in resonance with the global healing and events and activities that are occurring at that time. We encourage all to continue participating in the full moon meditations held by Cynthia Jurs of Earth Treasure Vase and by Loving Waters as well as the global monthly meditation held by David Nicol on the first Monday of every month. Other full moon events and activities can be shared on the Global Events page and in the Community group.   

 

5. Ongoing Events

 

As mentioned in the Healing Vision, 7 Days of Rest is part of an unfolding sequence of global events in service of healing and unity. We look forward to supporting  these events in whatever way we can. We are delighted to turn our focus now to supporting the World Interfaith Harmony Week (February 1-7) as well as the upcoming campaign of Good of the Whole, Reconnected and Whole: 40 Days of Awakened Action.

 

6. 2019 & Beyond


A call has come forth from the community to make 7 Days of Rest an annual event. This extension invites us to dream our collective evolution and manifestation as we embark on a yearly spiral of planetary healing and replenishment.

 

We are deeply grateful to be sharing this journey with each and all of you. As we take time to listen and reflect and rejoice upon our unique and shared experience we look forward to discovering what else wants to emerge as we move forward together in restful receptivity.

THE BEGINNING

Español   |   Português   Français   |   עברית   |   العَرَبِيَّة

THE INVITATION

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. Web pages are 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.

Additional ways to participate include inviting your friends and family to join the event and by sharing the inspiring posts from the facebook page (find a diverse selections of memes here).

 

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 so please be sure to sign up below. We will begin to put in place an ongoing virtual community platform to enable a 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 

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Breath, yoga, sound and movement practices that support the body's rest, healing and replenishment.

  5. Meditation, prayer, intention setting and practices that cultivate deep listening, present moment awareness, intuition and spontaneous visions.

  6. Practicing gentle loving communication with one’s self and those in one’s environment.

  7. Rituals dedicated to the healing, nurturing and replenishment of oneself, the planet and the entire Web of Life.

  8. Communing with and honouring nature, animals, the plants and the elements.

  9. Journaling insights, dreams and intentions.

  10. Connecting consciously to the 7 Day global prayer and meditation field either online or offline.

  11. Practicing living in gentle, simple community and extending one’s field of compassion to all beings.

  12. Envisioning a healed world.

  13. Gratitude for all that is healthy and nourishing in one’s own life and in the world.

SUPPORT, FIND AND JOIN LOCAL AND GLOBAL EVENTS

The event invites individuals and communities to self-organize, lead and engage in diverse healing and peace-building activities aligned with the 7 Days of Rest, that support the healing and replenishment of people, other species and Mother Earth.

These events can express the diverse cultures, passions and areas of stewardship participants feel called to focus on - giving expression to the collective caring for all parts of our interconnected whole.

The website will showcase a calendar of events organized by partners of 7 Days of Rest, and you can find and create events on the interactive map below.

You can also support the event by becoming active ambassadors, spreading the word and bringing on board your networks to amplify the collective field of healing for the good of all.

7 DAYS OF REST GATEWAYS

Inspiration from the 

growing community

"We need moments of quiet to support the world through a time when we seem to be losing our collective heads."

Sebastian 

"Inspired and beautiful vision! Can't wait to participate....."

David 

"Unifying, inspiring and much needed....looking forward to join together with other to come together and move forward together"

Leslie 

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.

Jackie

This is such an important initiative! The world is moving so fast that is it far to easy to get swept up with it. It is for this reason 7 days of Rest offers us a gift.. the opportunity to formally unplug from our default patterns so we can reassess how we want to live our life. If we use this time to pause and settle within ourselves we can get in touch with what we are really feeling, and discover what is important to us. To question and reevaluate what our purpose is here on this earth? Are we aligning the way we live our life with our core values and beliefs? If we can nurture ourselves both on the inside and outside by listening to our heart we'll be able to make the necessary changes needed to improve the quality of our life, the lives we interact with and the world.

Julie

I do believe that rushing is violence... when we rush too much we do violence to our bodies and mind and spirit. I see that this creates disease in our bodies/minds. Let's come together and go slow in the sacred time. IN this deep and profound energy we will find the peace that is needed to create lasting change on this planet.

Michelle

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?

Lynda

Inspired by this initiative. It facilitates a collective coherent field of Unity in our World which will be most powerful and by adding Sound Harmonics daily , your own mantra sound or an offered collective mantra /song it has the potential to unite the worlds within ourselves , within this galaxy and merge in a accelerated symbiotic dance with the energy and frequency of Mother Earth. 
This Collective Harmonic resonance wave will create a field of Love that is so powerful that anything that is in dissonance within/without will be dissolved and the restoration of Balance , Harmony and Peace will be returned .
Exited with the transformational potential !

Yukia

Like our in-breath and out-breath, REST is our natural state of Being. This is our great reminder to come back into balance with giving AND receiving. Imagine CONSCIOUSLY breathing and resting in the ease of our own Essence for 7 full days. Now imagine the whole world doing that! Ahhhh....

Linda

We are finding out that faster, bigger, more isn't always better, if fact it damages the planet, and we steam on, because "that's how it works"...not! So good a global initiative helps us all to reconnect, rethink and become real.

Floris

The mind is the most powerful and magnificent tool to Heal the planet and all its inhabitants.It is sorely needed vision to inspire all and my deepest gratitude to you and Rathane Thero for this groundbreaking work.

Mangalika

inspiring and healing event for our world and hearts.

Ori

An absolutely inspiring and beautiful vision! An initiative so timely and so sorely needed. Thank you!

Frank

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.

Dawn

Excellent initiative!! Our culture is so out of balance in the direction of work, producing, achieving...doing,doing,doing and so in need of stillness and rest..time for pure beingness. Years ago I was in Bali during their New Year which is honored by a day of total silence, meditation, fasting, no machines or computers are used..no businesses open, no fires burning...Total stillness. It was divine!!! And I have always carried this wish for us in the Western world to adopt a practice like this...Many Blessings for the initiators of this movement!!

Maya 

Such an incredible vision and event for a new story and future for earth and humanity. So honored to know about this and am grateful for the success and growth of this inspiring and growing event. Thanks and love

Destiny

To me, giving 7 days to gather our energies and consciousness within, and communing with Great Spirit, together, is even more powerful than sending thought forms out into the world. In Silence is where WE are. Sharing infinite Blessings of Gratitude with US ALL.

Joie

So many ways to be in the stillness, to allow it to flow into and through you to strengthen the balance in ALL, and to develop, give, and receive Unconditional Love 

Trish

Time of visualizing goals for the coming year. Cultivate Patience, Tolerance,become more charitable.

Mike
