  • I'm sure you can feel it - the change that's in the air all around us.
    It’s been a spectacular autumn and I’ve been spending as much time as
    possible going on long hikes. Perhaps I should feel guilty with the
    chores I am neglecting but I cannot resist the spectacular display
    beckoning outside my window. The smell of cool crisp air and sound of
    rustling leaves instantly put me in a good mood. I have always felt the
    healing energy of nature and lately have connected even more deeply
    with the cycles of each beautiful and fleeting season. I used to dread
    the end of summer but with age (and lots of Yoga) I am now grateful
    for living in a place that has four distinct seasons. I embrace change,
    after all, it is everything.
    Being in balance with our outer world brings more harmony to our
    inner world, both psychically and physically. As the colder weather
    sets in we transform our habits as well as wardrobes and, hopefully,
    our home environment. Crisp cotton bedding is exchanged for cozy
    flannel with lots of warm layers. Gourds replace summer fruit as
    natural decoration. I introduce darker earthy tones in towels, pillows
    and even rugs. Everything gets a good cleaning - and evaluation - to
    make certain it is in keeping with the season. Just as nature releases
    her bounty it feels good to let go of outdated or non-useful items (and
    behavior). Let the transformation of each wonderful season inspire
    your evolving relationship with your wonderful self, and allow your
    home to reflect that elevated state. Everyone entering your ‘space’ will
    feel it!
