This season’s focus: Discovering The Beauty in Letting Go

 
This season we will be focusing on letting go. Letting go isn’t an easy thing but nature shows us it can beautiful. We will spend this season beginning in a state of abundance. We will be harvesting the last bits of everything our garden has to offer. We will be saving what we desire to, sharing what we don’t, and then we will watch as it all fades away with the first frosts that come in October. We will learn to let go with grace, gratitude, mourning, relief, and excitement all in the same breathe.
 
This practice is important because our garden and the land around us show us exactly how to navigate moments like this in our lives and offer us a safe place to play with this idea. We can use this season to learn how to live fully in a time of transition and change.
 
Toward the end of this season, as the days become dark, we will begin to readjust our energy to think anew of a season of darkness. We will set our feet firmly in the bare soil of the space we have created and begin to find the place to root deeply. How we let go and prepare ourselves for the winter will allow us to feel ready to bloom in a whole new way in the spring, but now is the time we set that course. 
 
BOOK FOR FALL: Upstream by Mary Oliver
This book is a powerful and easy read as we navigate Autumn together. If you are unaware of Mary Oliver, she is a renowned poet and author who is deeply inspired by the natural world. Her writing is all written from her observations of life, growing up, and the connection to the natural world. There are powerful statements about growth, letting go, and more. I refer to this book often for thoughts and inspiration on the season as we are made aware of the fleeting nature of the outside world. All will change. It always does, but what can we learn from these changes? This is where I love this book. Mary’s powerful words in this small book are worth keeping close.

What does the community look like?

Our community is not a facebook group. It is a closed community on our own platform. There are no ads, no tracking, just community. Join the already enrolled 100+ community members interacting daily and sharing garden insights, successes, failures, and more. In addition to the online browser-based community, you can also log in through an iOS app and join the community conversation wherever and whenever. 

What Does the Weekly Meditation Look Like?

Every week Megan sends a new weekly Meditation and Journal prompt.

What do the events look like?

Every season we do at least 10 events in our community. Every Season begins with our launch event where the entire community comes together to embrace the new season ahead and Megan presents the Intention for the season as everyone is welcomed into the season and community. In the first week of every month Megan presents that month’s theme from the seasonal intention and facilitates the community conversation. At the end of every month Megan closes out the month’s theme with a reflection on where we have all grown and what insights have grown in the community. Every month also includes a topical event that is also open to non-community members for $5 per person and often includes a guest, chef, or subject matter expert.
