On one hand things are winding down, while on the other hand ramping up for one last hurrah. I'm so very much looking forward to the great Pause after our sweet celebration.
Today was my last client session of the year. While I was there I realized it may be the last session I hold in that particular healing nook as a new place is being cultivated. A sense of grateful completion permeated the day.
Then I came home and wrapped up registrations for our Solstice gathering this weekend. The brewing excitement from the community is palpable. The Shamanic Living Immersion members are in the thick of deep extraction processes - creating an intense holding pattern until a final release into our sacred fire.
This build up coupled with calming and settling is a dichotomy propelling me toward a great pause in the darkest nights of Winter. A rest time geared toward self restoration, family connection, and letting dreams slip in and out until some begin to stick.
Some endings, no matter how rough, have a sweetness to them even still.
