Hard to believe, but 2014 is coming to a close - and fast. I’m doing my best to take a little time this month to reflect on the past year. Maybe you are too?
If so, check out Susannah Conway’s 2015 Workbook - Unravelling the Year Ahead. If you’ve never done one of her workbooks before, I highly recommend it. It will give you a chance to reflect on 2014 and then set your intentions for the year ahead. Also, join in on December Reflections using the hashtag, #decemberreflections. Susannah has 31 prompts for each day of December. I just jumped in. And you can jump in anytime too! It's a great way to be part of an inspiring community (and it's really fun).
Some other things you might check out - Rachel Cole’s list of holiday hungers. What are you hungry for during the holidays? And maybe you’d like a fun, totally hip, holiday soundtrack while you’re wrapping presents? Check out Sas Petherick’s Bestivus Festivus mixtape.
Also, I've started teaching meditation again. Woohoo! I'm teaching an online course through The Interdependence Project called, Building Your Meditation Practice, starting January 10th. Would love it if you could join me! If a class is not feasible at the moment, I highly recommend checking out Dr. Miles Neale, one of my favorite teachers, and his series, Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation.
That’s all for now. I hope you’re enjoying this lovely and crazy and sometimes heartbreaking time of year. May your reflections bring you insight, forgiveness (for yourself, maybe?) and unexpected beauty.
