In early 2018, completed interviews for a project called 101 Core Conversations. Over the course of almost two years, I interviewed women about transitions in their lives. I’m just now beginning to revisit the interviews, and I cannot tell you grateful I am for these vulnerable and oh-so-real stories.

.

.

What I see over and over is that every single story of transition is a story about struggle. When we talk about transitions, we are talking about “the hard stuff.”

.

Some might say that we make it hard on ourselves. Even though the only constant is change, most of us would rather things stayed the same or, at the very least, didn’t get too sad, complicated, or messy.

.

But there is also the reality that our human systems respond to transitions in a very visceral way. Our bodies often get sick or tired. Our minds can feel scattered. Our emotions, erratic.

.

This is all part of being human. The more in tune I get with my own human system – body, mind, heart – the more in tune I become with how my whole self still struggles with things like the phases of the moon and the seasonal transitions.

.

This is why I created two seasonal offerings. If you haven’t joined The Seasonal Journal, we start again on March 18th. Here’s the link to the secret portal to join.

.

AND I would love it if you joined me for an afternoon mini-retreat on Saturday, March 14 from 2:00 – 4:30 pm at the Orangevale Community Center.

Come and feel supported as you transition from winter to spring.

.

We’ll practice Restorative Yoga with all the pillows, blankets, and nap-inducing quiet as we can. I even have a few goodies to share about how you might make the transition just a *little* more easeful.

.

This afternoon retreat is limited to 10 people, so if you are interested, sign up now. You can register HERE.

.

If we didn’t get to talk three years ago and you want to share your story of transition with me, let me know! I’d love to add you to the archive. And who knows when this research might become a book?

How Are You With Transitions?
