With JD Founder, Alyssa--What are the roots of modern day Christmas traditions? How can you deal with Winter's darkness and what can we learn from it, and how do you deal with holiday blues? This is my favorite time of the year, but for a lot of folks, they struggle with the holidays and winter, and also with the way of the world right now, it doesn't feel super jolly. I've been there.
THIS WEEK'S GIRL TALK:
-Why I love Christmas (it's not the gifts)
-Yule: The Pagan roots of Christmas traditions
-The saddest Christmas of my life
-How to deal with holiday blues
-Winter + introspection, planning, & healing
-Listening to Mother Nature
-Self care rituals + journal prompts for the Winter months
In this episode, we talk about celebrating the light, exploring the dark, and being the light, especially in darkness, while also investigating the Pagan roots behind Christmas, which I find fascinating! I even offer up some journal prompts to keep your spirits bright and how to use these darker months to prep for 2018.
