Replenish, Refresh and Renew: Welcome to Spring

Spring is my favourite time of year. I am always excited to see the world start fresh with a clean slate.

I live in a cold climate, so I am always ready to see winter move on from its icy grip – I can see the beauty in the winter whiteness, but, it’s not my favourite time of the year.

I use the change of season as a reset and a time for reflection:

How will I grow my practice and where can I pull back?

What things do I want to accomplish and where will I visit in the new season?

My favourite thing to do is a walking meditation and to be in nature as she awakens from her sleep. I love to greet the springtime as an opportunity to replenish and observe how everything changes.
