Hello, and welcome to The Seasoned Year.

This online space is intended as an invitation to stand back, slow down and pay attention to where we are in time and space.

An anchor in the storm.

A pause in the relentless do, do, do of our modern lives.

A breath, with which to sink back and feel the ground beneath you.

To root you in the moment you’re in and cultivate an appreciation for the wonder of this season, this moment, this earth you’re walking on.

Whether you’re where you want to be or not, whatever your dreams and big visions and schedule has in store for you, right here and right now is the greatest gift you have.

My hope is to inspire you to sink into and savour it, and here’s how:

Sign up for Letters from the Land every full and new moon: short, personal essays sharing the changes in the season and helping you to connect to the land where you live.

Find out a little more about me here, including why I started The Seasoned Year and where I’m writing to you from.

And if you’re ready to dive in and bring this way of being into your life, sign up for an eCourse to make the most of seasonal energy.

To the left you can find links to follow along on social media – including daily snapshots from the hills on Instagram.

And if you’d like to get in touch with questions, suggestions or invitations for guest posts or storytelling opportunities, drop me a line to hello@theseasonedyear.com and I’ll respond as soon as I can.

Thanks for stopping by!
