The Season Of Fall

Welcome To Fall

 
The word equinox comes from the Latin words for “equal night.”
The fall and spring equinoxes are the only days of the year in which the Sun crosses the celestial equator.
 

The Autumnal Equinox

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, it's time to welcome the fall equinox. We bid adieu to our summer harvest with its abundance of fruits and vegetables. Hot, lazy days become a thing of the past.

It's time to wave goodbye to our early morning light and long evenings of daylight and prepare to wake up in the dark for work. Somehow it seems terribly uncivilized to have to get up before even the sun has agreed to do so.

 

Sweaters And Falling Leaves

While I miss the longer days and abundance of the farmers market, I welcome the cooler weather of wearing sweaters. It's time to snuggle inside with steaming cups of tea flavored with cinnamon. Time to enjoy the nip in the air and to warm our fingers on hot cups of coffee.

Activities take on a slower bossa nova rhythm – a softer, more contemplative beat – that allows us to linger as we stroll on a path of falling leaves. Now we can tuck ourselves into a comfy chair with a good book and not feel guilty about it.

Fall Holidays And Pumpkins

Lots of holidays tumble into fall for our pleasurable participation. Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Hallowe'en, and Thanksgiving, just to name a few.

Pumpkins are everywhere. Jack o'lanterns, pumpkin pies and desserts, and gourds of all sizes populate our decorations. What's your favorite fall holiday?

Grey Skies, Brisk Winds

As we turn up our collars to rainy days of grey and the chill of longer nights, the fall equinox reminds us of the balance of light and dark even in our own lives. With The Radiance Technique® (TRT®), we nurture our inner flame with ongoing use of TRT® hands-on and meditations.

Keeping your inner flame burning bright.
