The Autumn Equinox is a natural time of balance and preparation. Day and night are of equal length, with the following days shifting us from longer light to darker nights, preparing us for winter. It’s harvest season – a chance to reap what we’ve sown, give thanks, cleanse and prepare the ground to reflect, restore and refocus.
Yoga and meditation practiced alongside natural cycles is a powerful and uplifting experience; providing the space to let go of constriction and allow the soaking up of the abundance of change.
We are all a microcosm of the macrocosm. We are all made up of the same minerals that can be found in the Earth – we are one and the same. And so it’s fitting that we work with the natural cycles of our Earth and her seasons.
From a healing perspective, the Autumn Equinox is a great opportunity to find balance between our light of consciousness & the darkness of our shadow, our masculine & feminine, and our prana & apana.
It’s also a good time to finish up old projects or plans and plant seeds for new enterprise or changes in lifestyle.
