We hold a strong cultural belief that to lie fallow means nothing is happening when, in fact, the opposite is true. Fallow time provides space internally to replenish and cultivate expansiveness.
Hitting the pause button is powerful.
When the body and the mind rest, they make room for creative ideas to percolate, for a more vibrant self to emerge, and for a deep understanding of to be in the world to be present and open to our joy.
New lenses appear from which to view a challenge and then unearth fresh solutions, letting go of entrenched beliefs that don't serve you suddenly seems possible as does the gradual unshackling of scarcity thinking.
By offering but not forcing community, peer support, playfulness, and creativity, TALO opens the door to new possibilities. We invite you to step inside.*
Idleness is not just a vacation, an indulgence or a vice; it is as indispensable to the brain as vitamin D is to the body, and deprived of it we suffer a mental affliction as disfiguring as rickets. The space and quiet that idleness provides is a necessary condition for standing back from life and seeing it whole, for making unexpected connections and waiting for the wild summer lightning strikes of inspiration - it is, paradoxically, necessary to getting any work done. -Tim Kreider
