Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
 In today's culture, we often think of rest as a reward but in many religious and spiritual traditions, rest and the notion of Sabbath have deep import as a practice. What does it mean to approach rest from a place of sacredness? And what do different traditions have to offer our understanding of sacred rest? Join us for this community conversation with Frank Stasio, Rabbi Steve Sager, Rabbi Emeritus of Beth El Synagogue in Durham; Claudia Horwitz, Founding Director of stone circles at The Stone House; and Usha Rajagopalan, former Hindu chaplain at Duke University.
