Unsure where to start with meditation?
Overwhelmed with all the options and choices?
Seeking a deeper experience of inner peace an
some sort of harmony between your inner and outer worlds?
Perhaps you’ve experienced different meditation and mindfulness practices over the years, but .. right now .. you’re unsure how to get back ‘into‘ them and somehow integrate them into daily life? Maybe you have your ‘go-to’ practices … but sometimes they don’t resonate, or they seem out of place for where you find yourself in life. Or you feel there might be a disconnect between your inner and outer worlds?
And yet. Deep down. You know. That inside of you,
you have all that you need to find
PEACE . CONNECTION. INSIGHT.

The Seasonal Mindfulness Calendar
The seasonal calendar gives us a framework (and focus) to tune into the constantly changing subtle, and not so subtle, changes that occur around and within us. Just as we see outside our window with natures continuous cycle of life: from the seed that blossoms in a riot of joy in Spring, to the vibrancy and exuberance needed for peak growth in Summer, so when Autumn arrives there is plenty to harvest and store in preparation for the stillness and solitude of Winter.
When we follow the energetic elements of the seasonal calendar we are consciously (mindfully) tapping into the Earth’s rhythms and cycles, and the Universal truth – that our inner world is always harmonizing with our outer world.
What are the Seasons telling us?
Winter is a time of gestation and withdrawal when nature shifts into her resting and replenishing season, taking refuge deep in the nourishing earth in preparation for spring. Winter is the time
June (Refuge) = Retreat
July (Harmony) = Bodyfulness
August (Reflection) = Self-Inquiry
Spring is the season of birth, creation and development led by the return of light and warmth. Spring is a time of planting and flourishing as new seeds sprout and nature awakens all around us. Spring is the time
September (Awakening) = The Senses
October (Renewal) = Healing
November (Growth) = Connection
Summer is nature’s season of growth and maturation. The bold fire energy and vibrant sunlight is rapidly driving nature upward and outward, and all around us the earth is reaching peak growth. Summer is a time of Balance, Action, Expression. In Summer our practices are inspired by:
December (Balance) = Yin/Yang
January (Action) = Energizing
February (Expression) = Creativity
Autumn is when our days begin to shorten and cool; in nature, this is a time of gathering, harvesting and storing before winter’s rest. The seeds have been sown, and now is the time to reap. Autumn is a time of: Preparation. Transition. Releasing. In Autumn our practices are inspired by:
March (Preparation) = Grounding
April (Transition) = Heartfulness
May (Releasing) = Letting Go
