“There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been!” –Percy Bysshe Shelley–
Here are our top picks of things not to be taken for granted during this season:
While the weather cooperates and the temperature is on our side, gaze at the stars on a crisp, clear night. If you’re lucky, you might get to see a shooting star! Make a wish for somebody that you know who is in need of healing.
Meditate in the midst of the beautiful foliage and reflect on change, renewal, and the gift of nature’s beauty. Appreciate fall’s normality in a time where many things around us feel abnormal. Start off your meditation with finding a quiet place to sit or lie down, close your eyes to the outside world, breathe naturally, and focus your attention on your breath and inner self. From here on, embrace the journey.
