HAPPY NEW YEAR!
We are wishing you all hope and possibility despite the ongoing challenges of pandemic life and climate crisis.
As we embark on a fresh start, we hope you are able to channel all of our collective anxieties into supporting the greater good. Help your neighbour, call-up a friend who haven’t spoken to in a long time, donate to and amplify organizations that are protecting our planet, our Indigenous land and water defenders and the vulnerable, finish that book, make a big batch of soup for the freezer, volunteer in the community and most importantly, regularly send yourself love :)
We have also passed Solstice, so we can start looking forward to the glorious Pacific Northwest display of plum and cherry blossoms as well as seeing the tender green shoots of snowbells, daffodils and hyacinths breaking through the frozen ground to dazzle our senses and lift our spirits. The days are gradually getting longer and sunnier as they do year in, year out.
This month’s package has been stocked generously with resources to support you shifting your mindset, forest bathing – in real life or from the comfort of your own home, a little nugget of herbal wisdom, thought-provoking short films and a few delicious recipes featuring RICE, so you can give your holiday belly a break from the rich, heavy foods of the past few weeks.
We are excited to see you all back in our chairs in the next few days so we can support you in the process of shaking off the holiday woolies and helping you ease back into the swing of things. But until then, we hope you enjoy January’s offerings.
“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”
