THE SEASONS

 

Today, it’s Autumn

Creation is getting quiet, cozy, going to sleep, going underground in some cases. Autumn invites us to come inside, to rest and to reflect. 

The literal darkness of this time of year reminds us to look deep within, not fearing our shadows or darkness we often try to hide. 

The work of discovering old habits, narratives and ways of being means we can let go of what is no longer serving us. 

Its a time to gather together, store up, study and plan for the stillness of Winter. Walks at night, gratitude and meditation are all great practices to keep consistent this time of year.

why is living and working

in rhtymn with tHE sEASONS

valuable?

With each Season comes an invitation. It invites us to be present and totally savor it- for its tender and harsh elements.

It doesn’t say lets ignore the past and not look to the future, rather lets process the present as it relates to the past and future. Lets be in it.

The invitation to live in rhythm with the seasons is an invitation to live with presence. Unmatched growth & transformation happens in the present with presence.

The wisdom of the seasons has the capacity to balance us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. The beauty of each season can humbily teach us how to form a regenerative culture; the seasons modeling for us the often intangable values of compassion, grace, patience and acceptance.

Simply put the seasons teach us where to focus our energy. When we connect to the seasonal rhythms we conserve energy, we move with the natural cadences, as if in a dance. This dance is mutually beneficial for humanity and the created world. This creates a more unified collective conscious and more balanced existence, for every living thing. For me its all about restoration - renewal of all things.

Living this way is a journey - a commitment to process not perfection. It says, ‘I want to be mindful in each season, and develop a real seasonal spiritual practice, I want to engage in each seasons invitations, exercises and activities’.

Through coaching and the local seasonal play dates these ideas can become more approachable, simple and fun.

Winter | Dec 21- March 20

A time to listen to your body, dance, deal with your fears. Its a time to hibernate or not feel bad about being indoors. Its a great time to plan out the next year, read by the fireplace and be still.

Spring | March 20-June 21

Spring is a time to play! To live into new realties, to notice the little buds of growth, to be light and open. Its a good time to eliminate sugars + caffeine if you haven’t already. Its a time to begin that new project.

Summer | june 21- Sept 22

Summer invites us to let go of our safety rails, to swim into the deep, walking by faith, not by sight. Is meaningful to serve, to be outside, travel and really live from your heart.
