Mindful : December 2018
A Mindful Solstice Tree We love a mindful practice of any kind, and particularly one that celebrates our interconnectedness with nature. In the spirit of the season, we offer our take on a Solstice Tree. May your home be filled with wonder and light this winter. * We recommend using as many all-natural ingredients as possible, to allow your tree to be composted. TREE Evergreens are an ancient symbol of longevity. Choose a farm-raised tree, or a potted tree you can plant. Or, simply decorate a houseplant! GARLANDS OF POPCORN, CRANBERRIES, AND CANDIED CITRUS SLICES In Mexico, popcorn is called palomita, or “little dove,” and was traditionally used in ceremonial garlands. The cranberries and candied citrus can represent the “bitter” and “sweet” that is a natural part of life, and bring natural color to your tree. ... AND SNOWFLAKES Remember making paper-cut snow flakes? Each one was perfect and unique just as it was—just like each one of us. NATURAL-DYE RAFFIA BOWS A reminder that we’re tied together in good will. PAPER STARS... Beautiful reminders of our place in the universe. LED LIGHTS Bringing light into the darkness. PINE CONES Symbolically, pine cones represent illumination. Dip in soywax or beeswax to make a natural fire starter to be used later. Or dip in wax, then roll in Epsom salts for a frosted appearance. 80 mindful December 2018 mindspace notice what you notice By Kelle Walsh • Illustration by Missy Chimovitz
