There are moments when you can feel a tickling in your throat, watering in your eyes or a random cough. To prevent an impending sickness, we begin to take extra measure to prevent or counter what we feel coming. Extra sleep, slower rhythm, warm soup or vitamin C – these become the ways we take action.
We enter into the holiday season and the health of our spirits are challenged. Not by tickling in the throat, but that continuous family tension. The watery eyes are the consumerist pressure to spend and impress. Extra gatherings mean our normal rhythms are altered and there is less time for us to maintain self-awareness and connection to what keeps us grounded.
On Saturdays until mid-January, A Winter Tree will offer you a dose of vitamin g to help keep you grounded during this season. We’ll highlight the practices that will help support you in maintaining the health of your spirit.
There is joy and generosity and love in this season. There can also be peace and grace and groundedness. With hope for the health of your Spirit….
I pray that you, being rooted and grounded in love may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. -Ephesians 3:17-18
