The Forest is a naturally healing place.  Some say just a simple walk in trees can calm the mind, heart and soul.  The trees heal us and through them we can heal others. Take a moment to find a wooded area and stop to breathe in the healing air.

A lovely place to sit and write is right in front of your seasonal altar.  Add some special writing papers to your décor.  So many are lovely or you can make some yourself.  Cutting up old greeting cards can provide wonderfully shaped spaces to create.

Oh, just imagine the smell of ginger tea on a cool fall day – so soothing and healing.  The aromatic herbs help to balance your kapha dosha bringing us back to calm and gentle places.  Turmeric is well known to reduce overall inflammation in the body.  At this time of year, a little garlic can help you avoid viral or bacterial disease.
