In Harmony with Earth

15 Oct, 2015
Here in the mountains of Northern New Mexico we see and feel the first signs of late summer, the season of the Earth Element. The sunflowers are in full bloom; the hay has been cut, bailed, and stored; and the evenings and mornings are quite cool. The harvest is abundant, tomatoes, cucumbers, garlic, potatoes, onions, zucchini, winter squash, fennel, many fresh herbs, and greens. Archetypally, the Earth Element is related to the Mother, and it is a time of powerful transitions, providing an opportunity to explore the ways in which we nourish ourselves and care for one another.
