Today marks our 17th year of bringing transformative, eco-social learning to youth and community members across BC. Thank you for being here with us, on a shared journey of realizing education truly transformative and regenerative for people, communities, ecology and climate!
As the Fall season sets in, it offers us an opportunity to reflect on how the seasonal rhythms of our Earth show their essence in the rhythms of our own lives. For many, the Fall time of year is for new beginnings - another school year, another chapter. In this sense, it may feel more closely like Spring, as we grow new shoots, embrace new opportunity, new potential, new possibility and begin to pick up momentum. We can experience the essences of seasons and cycles in our day, our week, our month, a lifetime.
In the seasonal cycle, Fall is a time for harvest after a long summer season of mature growth. In our lives, times of Fall are when we celebrate and harvest the gifts of our efforts, commitments and projects. Fall is when we begin to slow down into reflection, enjoy the fruits of our labour and to shed, digest and recycle what is not needed so we have the space and nutrients for our next Spring cycle.
