Preparing for the holiday season

How is everyone doing with the frantic preparation for the American Holiday Season

Bryant Park, NYC (from Wikicommons)
Many of us can feel as though there is never enough time, never enough money, and never enough energy to accomplish everything we feel we need to. Add a cold or battle with the flu on top of one's stress levels, and folks can feel numb and overwhelmed

Making time for self-care is extra important, although it may feel counter-intuitive at first. In Tibetan Bön & Buddhist teachings, there is a philosophy of 5 Elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Space. Space is a tricky concept for us western occultists to understand, but oh-so-important when added to one's understanding of magical technology. All of us can feel completely out of control when faced with our gigantic "To Do Lists", especially as the lists change on a daily (sometimes even hourly) basis. By taking time for oneself, and creating the Space needed to let everything else "wait on standby" for a short of amount of time, we are able to ground & center, and refocus on our hierarchy of needs. Then, it is much easier to determine what tasks need our immediate attention, versus tasks that will always dominate our time but never fully resolve.


If you are someone who is struggling to keep your energy levels up, your physical and mental health balanced, and your boundaries strong with friends and family, then let's work on that together. I am available both weekdays and some weekends, and we can co-create a healing ceremony that addresses these power drains. There is no better time to focus on your own healing and shadow work then during a season that pushes self-sacrifice to the extreme!
