In the last month of summer I hit my stride, finally feeling like I had some kind of rhythm in my still new home. There’s been lots of theatre, dancing and catching up with friends. All this neatly balanced with work, as my health coaching and naturopathic practice gathers speed and the practitioner support group unfolds.
All this activity and newness is exciting and has an energy all of its own. However I’m reminded of Julia Cameron’s advice in The Artists Way, that the busier you are, the more creative work that you’re doing, the more time is needed to feed your soul.
March began with two uplifting doses of soul food. The arrival of Kate James’s delightful book Believe in Yourself & Do What You Love and attending a talk on creativity given by one of my writing heroes – Elizabeth Gilbert. (Click the hyperlinks to read more about them.) To cap off an exciting month, I was given custodianship of a small plot at the local community garden. These last few weeks have been about tending the soil in readiness of planting winter vegetables. As soon as I put my hands in the earth, I knew it was the soul medicine I needed.
To read the March newsletter in full you can click this web version, if you like what you see feel free to sign up to get your own copy each month or share with a friend. There’s also a bumper crop of interesting links, Health Q&A Monday videos and a fruity recipe for the last of the summer fruit.
Don’t forget, if you’ve got a simple health question you’d like to submit to Health Q&A Monday, send it in.
I hope you have a fruitful month.
In good health,
