Tara Lamont Eastman

Welcome to the Wildgoose  Festival 2023, "Ignite"!

One of my favorite parts of Wildgoose is the opportunity to connect with new and old friends, to be reminded of the importance of supportive relationships and to carry these connections home - long after the festival has wrapped up.

Our first interview is with a new friend - Kate is the author of three books. Her newest book “Reclaiming Rest: The Promise of Sabbath, Solitude, and Stillness in a Restless World" is available now from all booksellers. In addition to her role as a writer, Kate is a consultant focused in international public health. She also is the leader of,
Writing for your Life, a resource center for spiritual writers.

This episode's prose piece comes from
"The Celtic Daily Prayer - Book 1" adapted to gender inclusive language. 

It reads:
“Their eyes, far-seeing, scan the horizon, the joys venturing of little boats. A torch burns clearly in their grasp, a faithful challenge to this generation -meeting, listening, heart-connecting. In their shadow is a place I covet, a challenge in a present time…While I live may I be the shadow of a Rock in a weary land, a shelter from the heat…"

Questions for discussion:
1. What does rest mean to you?
2. Do you have a regular rest ritual or sabbath practice?
3. What is it?
4. Why did you choose this as your sabbath/rest practice/ritual?
5. If you don't currently have a rest practice, how might you start one - what would i be?
6. What are the most needed or important effects you need to gain from a rest practice?
