“Tricia Hersey’s Nap Ministry changed my life. Rest Is Resistance is more than a book — it is one of the most vital interventions of our time.”―Casey Gerald, author of There Will Be No Miracles Here
“Lay your ass down and read this book right now! Rest Is Resistance is an inspiring, affirming and revolutionary balm. Tricia and the Nap Ministry’s ethos have changed my life, and work, for the better and this manifesto is no different. With compassionate inquiry and actionable offerings, Tricia divinely guides us further into rest, ourselves, and our collective liberation.”―Rachel Ricketts, spiritual activist and author of Do Better
“This book will save lives and transform the world. Tricia Hersey speaks the truth about rest, a truth that begins our unraveling from the lies of white supremacy and capitalism. Gradually we refuse to live at a machine pace. We surrender to the beautiful experiment of being human. We return to our truest selves. This is a book to read again and again, slowly, savoring it sentence by sentence. I'll be giving copies to everyone I work with and everyone I love.”―Emily Nagoski Ph.D., Bestselling author of Come As You Are and Burnout
“Over the span of several days, I read Rest Is Resistance as a meditative practice to alter my pace and ground my soul in this frenzied grind culture. Unlike other texts that list a litany of strategies to stave off exhaustion, Hersey presents a lullaby of liberation that frames rest as a portal for healing and imagination available to all. Once you open this book prepare to breathe more deeply and come to see the world more clearly. In the words of the Nap Bishop, ‘The Doors of the Nap Temple are open. Won’t you come?’”―Gregory C. Ellison II, Ph.D., Founder of Fearless Dialogues and Associate Professor at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology
