The many holidays of this month reflect its importance as a time of intention setting for the entire year.
We are entering the new moon of the Hebrew month of Elul, the time to assess how we have navigated the waves and rapids of the past challenging year before we enter the New Year next month.
We create healing and wholeness in the midst of the chaos and dissolution around us this month by cultivating our ability to listen carefully and hear the deeper truth of what is being said.
With the fragrances of spring awakening our senses and vaccinations in many of our arms, we enter the new moon of the Hebrew month of Sivan, the time to open our hearts and minds and receive with gratitude the myriad gifts here for us to savor.
We enter into the new moon of the Hebrew month of Iyar, the time of healing mind, body, and spirit though connection to our hearts, each other, and the One.
After these past challenging months, we now stand at the threshold of the new moon of Adar, the Hebrew month that celebrates the qualities of joy and laughter, so essential to our healing from this time of division and foreboding.
As we enter the new moon of the month of Shevat, the energy we experience is likely to shift gradually. Shevat is a time of inner renewal and nascent creativity when the mystery of the creative process is hidden from our view; it resides deep within seeds, roots of trees, and the awakening mind of humanity.
