Happy New Year and Welcome to Winter! A little personal share before I tell you more about my new offering: I love Mondays. I love the beginning of each month. I love the first 5 days of the year.  Every New Years Eve starts with  ceremony and ritual ( including midnight pancakes) and continues for the first 5 days of January, until my birthday. I spend time each day in ritual which may mean meditation, grocery shopping, massages and saunas, dancing and whatever else from the mundane to the profound ~all as my sadhana, my practice. It is my reset for the year with intentions (never resolutions) and faith. Each month is a renewal. Every Monday is a chance to be more mindful (not do more, mind you!) then the past week.  I created this Winter Reset for the New Year for me and for you. And then i kept adding bonuses. What I am most excited about are the 10 daily PLAYLISTS!  Most of you know that I am also a 5Rhythms teacher and this seemed like the most natural addition to this reset. I hope you enjoy this experience as much as I have enjoyed creating it!

There are countless ways to understand our nature. First there is our Nature with a capital N. Here we may invite the notion of that which is bigger than us. A picture of Divine, Great Spirit, God. Maybe we don’t go there. Perhaps we...
