CHILLshop: Pause, Rest, Be Retreat

Join author Octavia Raheem for a restful retreat / CHILLshop on February 6, 2022 from 11:00am-1:00pm ET.

This practice is a place for deep release, personal retreat, and collective refuge as we near almost two full years of a global pandemic.

A CHILLshop is the opposite of a workshop. The practice will include extended slow and mindful movement, resting postures, and deep relaxation. See what I mean? We “chillin’”, not working.

As a participant, you are encouraged to clear your calendar for some time before and after our time together, pre-plan for food/snacks, and dedicate a sweet chunk of your day to retreating..

You will need:

Pillows, blankets, bolsters

Journal and something to write with

The book- Pause, Rest, Be: Stillness Practices for Courage in Times of Change

Stable wifi

Though our retreat will officially start at 11:00am ET and end at 1:00pm ET here is the schedule I recommend for your personal retreat:

10:00-10:30am Set up your retreat space. Gather your blankets, pillows, create an altar, burn incense. Do what you need to do t make sure that your space feels like “it’s a vibe” for your rest retreat

10:30-10:55     Tea or light snack

10:55am     Log in for our retreat

11:00-1:00pm CHILLshop which includes yin, restorative, meditation, and deep relaxation

1:00-1:30    Journal on your own, reflect on your experience

1:30-2:30     Slow lunch and move back into your day

Investment: Pre-order 4 copies of Pause, Rest, Be: Stillness Practices for Courage in Times of Change by February 5, 2022 at 11:59am ET from here and email receipt to

Yelps that’s it! That’s how you can attend this rare CHILLshop with Octavia Raheem.
