How are you doing? I hope this email finds you safe and well. Most people I talk to these days find themselves surprised by the upcoming holidays and feel exhausted, so I hope that you can take care of yourselves and check in with your friends and colleagues. I sense the need for good, deep, soft wintering this year: slower pace, gentle candlelight, pampering evenings, more kindness, gratitude and companionship (by this, I also mean allowing ourselves time for stillness to reconnect with ourselves). I hope you can find ways to do so. Slow down and go softly.
