As the festive season winds down, and we slide toward secular New Year, I leave you with a bit of follow-up reading. In my last post I offered 10 Tips for cultivating place in the city. Within that post I mention some ideas that were revolutionary for me. Crafting a ritual year unique to my locale and beginning to work with a Place specific mythos (which I often had to create) propelled my spirituality forward in unexpected ways. In the weeks to come I will dive into these topics, sharing my experience and offering what I have learned. In the meantime, chew on these two thoughts:
Do you practice a nature religion? (Chas S. Clifton; Nature Religion for Real)
Does the land beneath your feet have its own mythic stories? ( Steven Posch; How do you say that in witch?)
May you enjoy the season, and discover beauty where you least expect it!
