start living with the seasons
Fall Edition: what’s the harvest?
Fall is about collecting the fruits of summers’s abundance. Summers’ nature was full of light and aliveness. Flowering plants, buzzing insects and sunlight produced fruits that we can now harvest. Meanwhile, many birds fly off to southern spheres, days are getting shorter and leaves turn to a rich colour-palette with shades of brown, red and yellow to eventually fall down to the ground. Fall is a period that feels rich and somehow melancholic at the same time.
Fall’s nature inspires you to reflect on what you are harvesting in your personal life. You grew this summer, that’s for sure. You accquired new insights and experiences. How wonderfull to give yourself an afternoon to realize how you’ve grown over summer. To honour your personal harvest.
Jamilla and I will guide you through this, with well-selected yin and yang yoga postures, guided meditations, breathing techniques, inspiring stories and a ritual that fits the theme.
