Today is Juneteenth, a celebration of the day the people of Galveston, Texas, learned that enslaved African Americans had been freed and took their first steps on the path toward equality.
We encourage everyone to honor and celebrate this significant day. Join the fight against oppression and inequality. Speak out against hate in all its forms.
We stand firm in its unwavering commitment to being an anti-racist company and bringing equity in the community. Join us today and every day to create a world where racism is not tolerated and is actively deconstructed.
In this eclipse season you may feel more vulnerable as aspects of yourself that have been suppressed for healing and integration. You will find yourself becoming more aware of the nature of your relationships, your own needs and how you may be giving your energy and power away unnecessarily. It is best not to criticize yourself and to rather give yourself the compassion and support you need. Be mindful of your own personal energy and take time to nurture yourself.
The incoming energies require us to remain in a space of fluidity despite any feelings of uncertainty. Fluidity allows us to remain open to all possibilities and opportunities. As we move into the month of June which is a space of inner stillness that will help to stabilize both our thoughts and our emotions. When we are stable and centred we are able to let go of our attachments and become more receptive to the insights, understanding and clarity we now need.
While Christmas music playlists often include favorites like “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,” there are also a handful of tracks that go a deeper. Listen to “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” or “White Christmas,” and you’ll hear a deep yearning to be home for the holidays especially when having to spend the holidays somewhere else.
December is filled with Christmas rituals – the TV specials, Live Rockefeller Christmas Lightning, the gifts, the lights, the music, fireplace, hot chocolate, snow, and what remains is home. It is the beating heart of the holiday, and its importance reflects our primal need to have a meaningful relationship with a setting, a place that transcends the boundary between the self and the physical world.
