the SEASONAL LOUNGE
The Season of Autumn: Preparation, Transition and Release.
Autumn is the season for harvesting, gathering and storing what might be needed for the journey ahead into Winter. A time for Preparing the nest and the pantry for the colder and darker days. Transitioning from yang-energy to quieter yin-energy. Releasing what is no longer needed so there is space for the new.
“Be like a tree and let the dead leaves drop” Rumi
May brings us the wisdom of Releasing. After grounding (March) and cultivating Heartfulness (April) we recognize that we have all that we need within .. and we are free to let go of that which no longer serves us. Growth and evolution are the gifts of releasing what is outworn or out-moded; perhaps it’s a habit that is not fulfilling, a wellness goal that no longer aligns, a viewpoint that is holding us back from our path, or a part of ourselves that no longer fits with our best intentions. Wisely letting go .. gives us the space for new ideas and ways of being to find us.

“As above, so below, as within, so without,
as the universe, so the soul…”
The Seasonal Lounge is an offering from my own personal meditation journey, inspired by my teachers from the wisdom traditions and contemporary evidence-based worlds, and my growing passion for the ancient schools of Ayurveda, TCM and Taoism .. that all speak to nature being our greatest teacher.
