The Necessity of Rest and Relaxation
Issue: 18 | May 15, 2024
From the Editors

In this issue we take a critical look at the preoccupation with business and chronic anxiety that is so characteristic of our times, and most importantly look at some of the ways we can create a counter momentum toward peace, ease, and creative flow.

We first spoke with Alex Soojung-Kim Pang about his best selling book Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less, a veritable treasure trove of strategies to increase the tranquility and creativity in your life.

We then spoke with spiritual healer, Lauralee Kelly about how she discovered the power of deep rest and listening through her struggle with chronic fatigue. This intimate portrait provides profound hope for others who suffer from this modern malady.

We have also turned back the clock and republished an article called the The Gospel of Relaxation by the early pioneer of psychology, William James. James’ insights about the anxiety of our age and its solutions are just as relevant today as they were a century ago.

The featured artist for this issue is Leslie Raznick whose surreal imagery provides a feast for the creative imagination.

And of course you will find some powerful written pieces from some of the members of The Mystery School.

We hope you enjoy the issue.
