Seasonal living .. is all about tapping into the wisdom, energy, and lessons of the season. Seasonal living .. recognizes that there is a Universal law, an undeniable truth, that our inner world is influenced by our outer world.
I love to dive in and learn more about the season .. and how it may influence or guide us in our meditation practice and sacred rituals. As I am located in the Southern Hemisphere (Melbourne, Australia) I will be following our seasons .. but over time will build a beautiful library of nourishing resources.
Spring symbolizes: new life, new beginnings, and awakening.

I have attended a few one day, weekend and longer meditation and yoga retreats over the years. Early in January 2016 I was planning to head off to the other side of the world for an eight-day intensive meditation and teacher training retreat. I was making copious lists to keep me organised as I had so much going on in life .. and then I thought those lists and thoughts might be useful for others on the same journey. When I returned, armed with even more insight, I wrote this little eBook to share. Download here : Attending A Meditation Retreat

9 Round Breath Exercise
An excellent exercise to settle the mind and stabilize focus prior to a longer period of meditation, or at any time during the day when you need to release tension and stress. Based on Alternate Nostril Breathing (Nadi Shodhana) from the yoga tradition, in this version we are simply using our mental focus to imagine, as strongly as we can, that we are alternating our breath through one nostril at a time.
