I feel so blessed living here in the sub-tropical forest of northern NSW. We were shocked and challenged during the fires, and had to evacuate,. We never imagined that it could get so dry here, and that fires could burn our ancient tropical forests. But it did.
My heart goes out to all that was lost in the fires around Australia, the people, animals, homes and habitat. May we learn from this and care more for Mother Earth - that's my prayer.
After the fires came the floods, which we are more accustomed to dealing with up here! Now it feels like our usual wet season, so I'm planting in my garden again and dealing with mold.. Many of my family, friends and clients are still dealing with the shock and trauma of these recent events, and once again I"m finding the tools and common sense approach of Ayurveda, and natural wisdom a healing balm. So I give Thanks to Wise Women's ways, and to the depth and insight of Ayurveda.. Common sense, grounding, being in nature, simple kitchen herbs and spices, empathy and caring for each other. For me these are the keys. to heal and move forward.
