From the Practice
It is a poignant time where we leave the exuberance of summer and head into a more melancholic season, tinged with a sadness for the loss of that fullness, where life begins its slow release into the fallow winter.
Notice the mood that autumn can bring. Is it one of melancholy, poignancy, tenderness, peace, sadness, joy, contemplation?
What is being asked of you to shed, to release, to let go, relinquishing what no longer serves you, releasing habits, patterns, activities that interfere with your wellbeing or the wellbeing of others?
