Episode 189: Sabbath for Mental Health

The practice of Sabbath is typically thought of by most of us as a specifically religious practice designated for people who are members of particular denominations. But there are mental health advantages to consecrating a time each week for rest, renewal, and delight. Sabbath is more than the absence of work; it is not just a day off when we catch up on television or errands. It is the presence of something that arises when we consecrate a period of our time for listening to what is most deeply beautiful, nourishing, or true to us. It is a time to set our attention and our minds for honoring those quiet forces of grace or spirit that sustain and heal us. 

TRANSCRIPT: Sabbath for Mental Health
