Take your cues from trees in autumn, which do not stubbornly hold on to their leaves or will them to stay green. Resisting change doesn’t stop it from happening. Let go, if only a little. Try to make yourself at home in a new season. Keep moving. – Maggie Smith
Are you ready to make yourself at home in a new season?
Autumn is perhaps my favorite season. There is something about the crunch of leaves underfoot, the comfort of a sweater wrapped around me, and the steadiness I feel when boots hold my feet.
There is a bittersweet element to the season too. It signals that we are nearing the end of the calendar year, and it is a time when we begin to reflect on the year, to turn inward, and perhaps to gather some lessons.
To mark this harvest season, we are going to gather the pieces of ourselves that have grown throughout the year.
We will examine this bundle in all of its sacredness and move through the process of holding close what we need to carry with us into the next season, and honoring what is ready to be released.
We will come together to prepare for the shift from external to internal, as we move into the season of shortening days.
Through meditation, movement, and creative practices, the intention of the time together is to reflect in order to grow. This is about harvesting – gathering the pieces of self, and connecting to your inherent wholeness so that you can carry that light into even the darkest of days.
