This time of year the darker days invite us to turn within, get quiet, reflect. Yet the holidays and end of year work pressures call us to direct our energy outward. These invitations can be quite emotionally exhausting and taxing on our bodies and nervous systems. They can even trigger past traumas or abuses, making it even more challenging to create and enjoy the many gifts of this season.
How do we chose to respond?
What choices will be in the healthiest alignment for us — for our mind, body, psyche, and soul?
How can we resource ourselves and create safe boundaries?
How can we work with challenging situations and difficult emotions, and embrace them as they truly are — invitations for us to affirm our own power, our own choice and intelligence?
