Family, Faith and Love are the foundations that keep me strong. And holidays are such a special time to celebrate, gather around our family and friends to celebrate each other. Apart from the festivities, it is also a time for me to reflect and set the ground with my intentions (sankalpa) for a brand new year that lies ahead. This is a wonderful time to breathe gently through our memories and see our own reflections.
Today, December 13th 2016 is the final full moon of the year that precedes the Winter Solstice (Dec 21), when the nights are longest in the northern hemisphere. This is a yearly turning point that is auspicious for planning and envisioning.......What do you want your life to look, feel, sound, taste, and smell like? Where would you like to go? Use this full moon to allow your mind to flow in the field of endless possibility. Visualize and Speak your intentions aloud for 2017 as they hold exceptional power right now.
During this transition period, I am shedding old layers and already prepping the soil for a vibrant 2017. There is lots to be grateful for and so much to look forward to. I am so excited to announce starting January 2017 I will conduct cooking workshops at Central Market at two locations in the metroplex. Scroll down below for more details on that. I am also honored to be speaking at several public and professional conferences in the upcoming year. And I am planning several other exciting things to offer to you.
I hold each of you dear in my heart and wish you be surrounded by love of your family and friends and savor the sensual delights of the season around you. May you flow with this season of merriment, be content with yourself, and find moments of pause.
Happy Holidays from our family to yours! Wish your holidays be filled with wonder and light and is very merry and bright!!
Peace and OM
