Celebrate the Seasons and Earth’s Natural Cycles

Our ancestors celebrated life together with the rhythms of each season. Many of these celebrations were interwoven and connected to nature and Earth’s natural cycles. Today we celebrate the seasons and our connections to the natural world with intentional and meaningful celebrations that renew our joy in life and bring a deeper meaning to our human existence. By following the cycle of nature, you’ll be able to experience a deep connection with the natural world and see how everything is connected.

It’s important to spend time outdoors, throughout all the seasons, to connect with nature. By observing and interacting with nature, we can tune into its nuances and learn more about it. This will help us remember the nature-language we’ve forgotten through our modern and rushed lives.

The following posts are here to provide you with a foundation to rewild yourself through aligning with the cycles of the seasons and to help you in discovering the energies of the seasonal cycles. You will find outlined seasonal transition days on which to celebrate rituals that connect you with the natural world, as well as tips and inspiration to help you to fully celebrate the seasons and connect with nature while strengthening relationships with family and friends.
