Hello, and welcome to The Seasoned Year.
My intention in creating this space is to provide us both, you and I, with an anchor in the storm.
An invitation to stand back, breathe in, and pay attention to where you are right now.
In your body, on this earth.
A reminder to drop your shoulders, unclench your jaw, and feel the ground beneath you.
To root yourself in the moment you’re in and cultivate your innate 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 the free Letters from the Land I send every full and new moon: short, inspirational emails straight to your inbox, sharing the changes in the season where I am, and helping you to connect to the land where you live. (They’ve been called a “digital hug”)
Find out a little more about me here, including why I started The Seasoned Year and where I’m writing to you from.
To the left you can find links to follow along on social media – including daily-is 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll respond as soon as I can.
More and more of us are finding that connecting back to natural cycles, and paying attention to the present moment, is changing things subtly and steadily in how we show in the world. Thank you for being a part of this – for joining me in community and for sharing your own path too. I’m looking forward to getting to know you.
Love, Madeleine x
