There is something enthantingly intangible about this time of year, something ethereal and mysterious that inspires contemplative reflection. Autumn symbolizes transition — light to dark, hot to cold, life to death. And by attuning to the wisdom of Autumn, we can learn how to navigate life changes with beauty and grace.
Spring is here — pregnant with invigorating energy that primes us for renewal and rebirth, for new potential and new momentum, and ultimately for stimulating change.
Like fresh snow that covers the ground in pure white, Winter is our blank slate. We enter this phase after moving through a period of release or loss; Perhaps we have decided to end a friendship or relationship, quit a job, or change careers altogether. Perhaps we have lost a loved one, or our home. It could be leaving a city — or a country even — and moving somewhere new. Whatever the case, we have let go of something familiar and find ourselves in a realm of unfamiliar, and in this new space we are faced with the task of redefining and redesigning who we are and how we want to express ourselves.
