Winter Solstice is an opportunity to match the tempo of nature and slow down.
For advice on how to take advantage of this powerful season shift, I consulted with herbalist Cherise Atkinson, founder of Bright Green Possibilities.
A symbiotic relationship with Mother Nature is central to Cherise’s artistry as a clinical western herbalist, minimalist, gardener, cook & dreamer. She believes true wellness comes through simplicity. I second that sentiment!
I have always loved the dreamtime. As a kid, it was as important to me as my time spent awake. It allowed me to travel to mystical places, communicate with beings, and get a break from the less creative zone known as “reality.” The dreamtime was my den of comfort where I would explore and be all aspects of myself, without outside judgement present. It also provided a portal to information daring to be explored.
