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.
