The Nap Ministry



Rest is important for overcoming exhaustion and resisting oppression.

Tricia Hersey, also known as the Nap Bishop, is the founder of The Nap Ministry and author of Rest Is Resistance: A Manifesto. She writes ”My rest as a Black woman in America suffering from generational exhaustion and racial trauma always was a political refusal and social justice uprising within my body. I took to rest and naps and slowing down as a way to save my life, resist the systems telling me to do more and most importantly as a remembrance to my Ancestors who had their DreamSpace stolen from them."
