Radical Rest:
The Innate Wisdom of Slowing Down

Day of Practice: On-Demand

Learn to honor your body’s need for deep restoration, using the medicine of darkness

Darkness, as an element of nature, carries qualities that are receptive, or yin, like stillness and quietude. Darkness is the restorative, slow aspect of consciousness that is necessary to sustain and regenerate all of life.

Within the dominant paradigm, however, there is a bias towards light, and qualities which are active, or yang, such as motion, speed, productivity, and animation.

In this Day of Practice, Deborah Eden Tull – dharma teacher and deep ecologist – guides us through a restorative program of meditation, mindful journaling, and practices for subtle body awareness.

Join Eden for an exploration of the regenerative balance and interplay of dark and light, yin and yan, and attunement and productivity that dharma practice invites into our lives.

Radical Rest

Join this session to receive:

  • Recognition of the restorative darkness as our ally in awakening
  • Appreciation for the subtle body as our guide to Radical Rest
  • An invitation to  s l o w  d o w n  and exchange the paradigm of depletion for the wisdom of rest, balance, and regeneration

What is Day of Practice?

Sangha Live’s 3-hour Day of Practice allows for you to drop in deeper, develop your meditation skills, and reset your intentions through sustained sitting.

Now offered ON-DEMAND, you can join this session independently, on your own schedule, and at your ideal pace. Watch and re-watch the videos as you please.

Days of Practice include longer periods of meditation interspersed with wise teachings, a recorded Q&A from the live class, and more.

What’s Included

With the independent student in mind, previously recorded live sessions are broken down into meaningful modules. Each Day of Practice has been trimmed and consolidated into 4 to 6 videos, and every video – whether a lesson, meditation, exercise, or Q&A – includes a description, so you have total flexibility when planning your self-paced day of practice.


Day of Practice is offered on a sliding scale basis, with a suggested rate of $35. We wholeheartedly welcome all to practice with us; no one turned away for lack of funds.
