“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end” – Seneca
Happy New Year!
We welcomed 2018 with a healthy dose of karma yoga practice this month. Between the 7.25″ of rain that have fallen so far, thirteen yogis and yoginis made the pilgrimage to the land (Gretchen, Della, Michael, and Tam for the first time). Our celebratory noisemakers are a chorus of chainsaws as we continue to cut and clear trees that fell in the fire and subsequent landslides last winter.
We’ve so far been blessed with rain that has comes in short bursts with just enough space between to give us time to divert water away from our structures and into our drains. Meanwhile, the land erupts in infinite shades of green as new life announces it’s presence in this bountiful ecosystem.
As we continue the process of exploring permitting parameters and designing our new hermitage this winter, we delight in slowing down, tuning into nature’s powerful lessons, and exploring our path forward together.
If you’d like to offer ideas or volunteer to support the hermitage, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you feel inspired to contribute financially, you’ll find current items of need on our wishlist or become a Friend and donate to the ongoing maintenance of the land here.
Love and gratitude,
Kay & Cory
