We all hear about the importance of self-care and, in particular, sleep. But many of us continue to struggle finding our internal place of deep rest and renewal. This place is not only where our nervous system resets, but also where our creativity, zest, truest voice, and zone of genius dwell - boons to any academic writer, teacher, and change-maker. It is also from this place that clarity of purpose arises about our role in social transformation. In this workshop we explore the idea and practice of "resting to rise" for academics. We introduce yoga nidra - what it is, what it does, its relevance to faculty, and, most importantly, how to try it and even fit it in to your already-full schedule. You will leave the workshop with access to a free recording, and a plan for weaving it into your life in support of your writing goals and other meaningful projects.
