I absolutely love springtime. I think it’s my favorite season…..The newness of life and volatile weather. How all four seasons can happen within a single hour. Or on those first few warm days, I can see huge differences in the budding Magnolia blossoms between Bodhi’s morning walk and his evening walk around our neighborhood. There is such a rich vitality which inspires me out of Winter’s sleepy lull and makes me want to…..CLEAN!?!
Okay, for those who know me, that is not a natural desire of mine. It’s embarrassing to admit, but if you come for tea on Tuesday then again on Saturday, you will likely see your teacup right where you left it. So this impulsion of Spring is a mighty powerful force!
Many of my friends love to forage the woods for nettles this time of year, brewing up cauldrons of detoxifying nettle tea. In fact, many folks do a cleanse every Spring as part of their personal health ritual. But whether you fast, do the Master Cleanse, pick young nettles for tea or schedule a colonic, most of us focus on our digestion. This Spring, I’m inviting you to consider adding bathing to your cleansing ritual.
