The practice of pausing and listening to our deeper inner voice rewires us. It allows us more access to our big-picture thinking, more comfort when we’re in a state of “not knowing,” and a greater capacity to pause before responding to challenging circumstances in our lives.

September races in, pushing us to a starting line. We launch eagerly into new commitments and rededicate ourselves to routine. Yet, along with the excitement of what is to come, we may also experience nostalgia, and sometimes anxiety for what we leave behind. While it is a time of new beginnings, it is also a time of letting go and release. For me, September has always felt profound in this way, offering both a time for change and reconnection; good-bye and hello, transition and transformation.
