Slow down, you’re going too fast. Take a breath, it’s ok. There’s time. We’ve made time. We will always make time. Take off those heavy shoes. Lie down, get comfortable, let your body sink into the ground. Tune in or tune out. Think free, let it pass, be light and float… off to sleep, to dreamland. Centre yourself, ground, floor, soft, relax. Listen, but lightly, smell, breathe in… 2 3 4, breathe out 2 3 4. Embrace, hold space, for your gut, your mind, your eyes, your eyes, your feet, your hands. Join Roo for a moment of rest.

Roo's Practice surrounds itself on 3 key thread, Sangat - Community, Seva - Selfless service and Ahram - rest. These workshops are focussing on Ahram, rest.

About the facilitator:

Roo Dhissou is an artist and doctoral researcher who works with communities, diasporas and her own histories. Using socially engaged practice, craft, cooking, performance and installation she explores how communal and individual identities are formed.
