2016.6 c stones bio head shoulders lo resAs the shadows lengthen at on these Lammas days—the mid-point between the Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox—the Earth invites us to savor the beauty, the sweetness, and the richness of our lives.

Where do we find the connection and belonging that our hearts so deeply yearn for? In our society, we are often told that one romantic relationship should meet all our needs—rather than relying on a wide-ranging circle of sources. Lammas season invites us to remember that making a connection with a greater spectrum of resources gives us more access to love! That spectrum includes our friends and loved ones, of course, and also plants, water, wild things . . . the Earth herself.

The Fruits of the Season

spring fruits 600 x 375During these long, hot summer days in July and August, we begin to relax a bit and enjoy the delectable fruits of our summer's labors. Lammas is the time of year when we celebrate the harvest, reap what we have sown and see the desires that we had at the start of the year unfold.

During this last week of July and into the first days of August (Lammas is traditionally August 1), we also recognize that the long summer days will soon come to an end. So while we celebrate the fruits of our labors, relish in the abundance of nature around is, we also start to prepare for the darker, quieter days ahead.

During this ripening time, may you experience the great bounty of this season. Happy Lammas.
