Nourishment + Gratitude

Friday, November 3rd, 2017

There is such a natural and beautiful connection between nourishment and gratitude, and it’s one that shines especially brightly at this time of year. I like to think of Thanksgiving as a celebration of generosity, giving thanks to the earth that provides us with the perfect nourishment for our bodies, to the friends and family who feed our hearts with their loving kindness, and to all those who have gone before us, who have labored untiringly to create this nurturing world.

Every day, working in the apothecary or in my treatment room, I’m wonderstruck by the elegance and power of plant medicines. They meet our needs so precisely, bringing our skin into harmony and contributing so much abundance to our lives. That precision, meeting every need with its perfect remedy, and the sense of loving bounty I find in the plant world, are hugely inspiring.

But at this time of year, I also find happiness in appreciating generosity in all its many forms. I’m inspired by the ways in which we all support and nurture one another, through loving gestures great and small—and including the lovely ways in which we treat ourselves with special care.

After all, when we nourish all the beings around us, we come to realize our own most powerfully fulfilled—and glowingly beautiful—selves.

Thank you for your generosity and for your loving care.

Nourish Yourself

 

It is in our very nature to come together during difficult times, to support one another, and to reach to those in need, in all the many ways that grace arises. The recent storms here in Florida have brought difficulty, but have also brought us closer as a community just at the time in the earth’s cycle when we’ve pulled together by tradition for thousands of years—the harvest at summer’s end, the culmination of that season’s beauty, and the quick and yet slow shift into autumn, which always comes as a delicious surprise.

Every year, there’s a moment when you can almost feel the earth change course, beginning to draw its energy inward again. It’s then, after all of summer’s exuberant, expansive ripening, we receive one of nature’s loveliest gifts, a green and growing generosity that blooms into a bounty. I love to pause just then, taking the opportunity to assimilate summer’s sweetness with my friends and family. For me, the harvest also serves as the perfect reminder—it’s a great time to nourish ourselves in every which way.

The transition can be both physical and emotional, and I know that will be especially true this year. During this seasonal shift, I find myself encouraging clients to work towards restoring balance on every level, fortifying the skin, but also the body, mind and spirit. Being in community, of course, works wonders to bring about this transformation, as does the simple gesture of indulging in quiet. The friends we seek out, the food we prepare for our families and for ourselves, and the help we can offer to others, moves us into the new season feeling regenerated, clear and brightly abundant.

Please join me this month in celebrating the harvest—and nourishing you.
