An Invitation to Try on Winter

An Invitation to Try on Winter

The colder temperatures in the winter months can be a deterrent for many to get outside. We complain, “it’s too cold, it’s too dark”.  We crave the comfort that inside offers us with cozy blankets, central heating, and comforting foods. Who doesn’t love to snuggle up with a blanket and a good book or a movie?  However, winter provides its own unique gifts.  The trails are not crowded and the sidewalks in our neighborhoods are calling for someone to walk on them. Many of the animals are hibernating, the birds have flown south, the leaves have fallen and in that we have the opportunity to notice the smaller details of nature.  The ice crystallizes on the bare branches and along pools of melted snow.  The few dried leaves that still ordain the trees sing their own unique song for us to hear. The cool of the air may make your nose run yes, but it also awakens our spirit to something greater.

I invite you to try out winter.  Say hello to nature in this magical time. If you need some inspiration try this experience. Make first tracks on a path the next time it snows.  At some point pause and look behind you at your steps.  These steps represent your past however long whether you want to focus on those steps as your past, your entire life, or how you are living in your current life.  How has your past served you?  How has it not served you?  Then stop and acknowledge that you can blaze a trail.  Next, look forward on the untouched landscape ahead of you representing your future.  What do you want that path to look like?  What could that look like if you could have anything you wanted?  Now notice where you are.  This is your present moment where neither your future nor your past can touch you.  In this moment it you just you.  If you are longing to embark on a nourishing adventure outdoors, then we invite you to join us on upcoming Glistening The Soul – Day Retreat & Snowshoeing for Women.
