Listen to the Course Intro…
“It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it. ” -John Burroughs
Lesson 1 :: Restful Energy
Winter is a time of restoration, rejuvenation and turning inward. It’s a time for BEing and resting after a long year. It’s a low-energy time where you get to rest and be restored during the dark days and cold nights. Let yourself be healed by Winter’s energy.
Lesson 2 :: Slow Pace
Winter is a slow, sleepy time of year. It’s a time to release DOing and achieving, and instead connect with your center and the stillness within. Learn to follow Winter’s pace, and find deep peace and restoration through BEing and presence.
Lesson 3 :: Cold Weather
The cold, dark, wet Winter weather is an invitation for you to get comfortable and cozy. It’s a gentle reminder that you have permission to rest. Allow yourself to be tucked in and blanketed by this cloudy, restorative season.
Lesson 4 :: Inner Work
Winter is a time of introspection, reflection and incubation. It’s a time for you to sit with yourself, and allow old mental, emotional and physical wounds to be healed. Let your inner world take center stage, connect with your deepest self and grow in self-awareness.
Lesson 5 :: Outer Work
Support the inner work you are doing this Winter by outwardly caring for yourself. Winter is a wonderful time to create self-care practices to help you feel oh-so-good and gently supported. Shower yourself with love, kindness and care this Winter season.
Lesson 6 :: Feeding Your Body
Fueling the body and giving it energy to keep warm during the Winter is essential to your health and well-being during this cold, wet time of year. Being mindful to eat hot meals and warm drinks is likely to do the trick. Find what works for you.
Lesson 7 :: Moving Your Body
Finding ways to be active during the Winter to keep warm will ensure you don’t grow stiff or stuck in your joints. Easy movement to heat your body, regular baths and stretching will keep your body loose and create more joy during this dark time.
Lesson 8 :: Water Element Meditation
Water is the element associated with Winter. This short, guided meditation will help you connect with the water element and embrace it more fully, creating a sense of connection and ease with this wet season.
Lesson 9 :: Nature’s Example
Winter is a time of hibernation. Let’s look to nature for how we can find comfort and restoration through stillness and BEing. Allow this time of year to be what it is and trust that you’ll know when it’s time to wake up and be more active.
Lesson 10 :: Embracing Winter
When you embrace Winter for what it is – a time of stillness and restoration – you will be fully rested and ready for the seasons to come. You will have more clarity, inner peace and self-awareness to guide you through Spring, Summer and Autumn. Enjoy it!
