Happy Summer Solstice!

Its the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, Summer Solstice! This is a time of celebrating the growth of all that you dreamed in the dark of winter and planted in the spring. One way to remember this important natural cycle is to notice how the plants, trees and wildlife have changed since winter. Spend time appreciating the flowers and fruits of their labor. Visit the farmer’s market, take a hike in the woods, go explore your backyard and see what has changed.

One of the biggest dysfunctions in modern, western culture is our disconnection from natural rhythms, our insistence on constant productivity and unlimited growth. We push, we overwork, we expect the unreasonable out of our own bodies. And by being disconnected from nature, we are disconnected from our our own selves because we too are a part of nature.

Creating simple rituals where we tune into the cycles of nature can help us reconnect to our own lives and each other. Mystic Mama has a beautiful list of rituals and celebrations you can use to reconnect to earth-wisdom on this beautiful day of sun!

My family enjoys having friends over and sharing food, singing and dancing around the backyard bonfire. I will often make a sun tea (throwing in some strawberries and mint from the garden) and charge up my special stones in the sunlight on the longest day as well.

About the Author:

I really do understand what it feels like to lose your way. Because I have lived through the dark moments of self-doubt and hit the walls of seemingly impossible obstacles, I am even more passionate about seeing my clients thrive. There is nothing more inspiring to me than helping others deeply connect to their own meaningful purpose. I believe that everyone has an inner wisdom that can guide them to be their most true, creative and fulfilled self. In our coaching sessions, we explore that together. In the past 15 years, my life has changed so much. I have a life partner who is a writer/photographer/journalist and together we had a second son, now ten years old. I have a close relationship with my grown son; we love to hit the ski mountain together and we have long talks about most everything. If you are looking for an collaborator who can understand your hardships and hold a vision with you of your possibilities, I would love to be your Life and Career Coach!
