Welcome to Seasonal Mindfulness.
I have created this offering based on my own personal meditation journey of 30+ years, inspired by my teachers from both the wisdom traditions and contemporary evidence-based communities .. and my growing appreciation and awareness that nature and the energy of nature can be our greatest teacher.
Seasonal Mindfulness is all about Mindfulness + the Seasons.
When I am mindful and guided by the natural world around me, the heat and fire energy of Summer or the inward shifting and reflective energy of Winter, I find that my personal meditation practice, and daily life, become even more expansive and engaging. Harmonising my inner world to my external environment .. continues to nourish and inspire my daily practice.
“Cultivating a deeper awareness and understanding of the seasonal changes unfolding in our external environment can help us understand their influence on our internal world .. our energy, mood, attitudes, beliefs, thoughts, and choices. The changing seasons can also inspire and inform our meditation, mindfulness and daily rituals, so that we can balance and harmonise our inner and outer worlds.”
Sarah, Quiet Mind Meditation
The Seasonal Calendar reflects the energetic flavour of each Season and gives us a unique monthly theme to refine our focus and awareness.
These themes can guide us to observe and tap-into the energy and wisdom of each season, and also give us a refreshing new ‘lens’ for our meditation, mindfulness and daily life practices.
All my classes, workshops and events are inspired by Seasonal Mindfulness.
