What Winter Solstice Means to Me

Every year around December 21st, the Universe exposes one of its greatest gifts – sunlight. This day marks the beginning of Winter which many associate as dreary, cold, cozy, and barren. This day is called Winter Solstice – the shortest day of the year because it has the least amount of sunlight. If you’re a sun-loving spirit like me, this darkness can be startling.

How to create your sacred space

We need to get away from the hustle and grind of life. We don't mean a pack-your-bags-and-go retreat (although those are great too), but rather a daily escape from the outside world where you can connect to your Self. Devoting quiet, introspective time in a replenishing space each day offers profound benefits to your mental, physical and emotional health and vitality.   First things first, you must have a space that feels good in order to return to it each day. This is your sacred space. It can be a room, a corner, your garden, anywhere. Belinda Pearl and I show you how to find and create [...]
