ALOHA LIFE CENTRE NEWS May 2015
“The Earth dreams in the dark embrace of the Goddess. Deep in her sacred womb-cave. The heart-beat of creation sounds loudly in our ears. We pulse to a rhythm resonant with the birthing and dying of stars and galaxies, the rise and fall of species, peoples, empires… We are seeds, fallen into the fertile growing medium of opportunity. Heart beats measuring out ripeness as the moon swells and shrinks and swells again. Slowly the possible takes form. Winter brings a new appreciation for the generative role of darkness – as we prepare to celebrate the emergence of all that is – the endless process of becoming – which pours forth from the primal darkness of the Great Mother’s womb. Now is a time for reflecting and giving thanks for the potency that is hidden away within our beings, often well out of sight of our conscious identities, until the time is ripe for its birth (or rebirth) into our lives and our world.”
Catherine Ishara de Gari
I trust that your body, mind and spirit are enjoying the changing rhythms within and all around us as we transition through autumn into winter. At this time of year, I am grateful to live in Jozi to celebrate autumn, the golden softer light, the rich deep reds, browns and golds soothing and replenishing my soul. After a productive and fast first quarter of 2015, bar the trepidation of cold and stark, I feel ready for the welcome internal aspect of winter. And I am ever grateful for dance, fire and kahuna massage to keep my soul healthy as the pulse of life slows and I come to a deeper, quieter place within.
REST, REFLECTION and REPLENISHMENT
If we were to honor the quiet energy of winter, we would REST more and view this season as an opportunity to RESTORE ourselves so we have the energy to blossom with our activities in the spring again. Winter can be a fallow time, but not necessarily a time when nothing happens. It can be a time of REFLECTION. We can begin to ask ourselves what projects we want to undertake when the energy of spring rises to nurture us. Above all Winter reminds me of living with FAITH. Faith that the spring shall return.

“Aloha is that feeling of a smile so big it cracks your face from your heart, the fragrance and color of a beautiful flower, the sound of children laughing and playing, and the taste of ripe tropical fruit and their juices. Aloha is also the Spirit behind all creation. The Way of Aloha can be practiced and experienced anywhere, anytime and with anyone. It is a path of love , harmony and appreciation for the beauty in all things and people, and it’s available only in this eternal moment of NOW!”
