216. The Wheel of the Year: Ancestral Wisdom & Rituals To Get In Sync with The Seasons and Nature

Why are the holidays so enchanting, universally and separately from any organized religious activities?

How did our ancestors honor these planetary transitions and celebrate the changing of the seasons?

If we recognize their deep-rooted traditions, can we feel more aligned and connected with the cycles of nature?

This episode is an exploration of the 8 ancient Pagan celebrations that underlie the more recent Christian holidays. Together, we’ll dive into the cosmic dance of astrological cycles and the annual phases of the sun, discovering the profound connection between these ancient celebrations and the natural world. Throughout the episode, I’ll share insights into the significance of rituals and rites of passage, unveiling the rich Pagan traditions of Paganism and unravelling its stigmatized nature. We’ll also review the importance of aligning our diets with the seasons to savor the abundance of nourishment nature provides.

I hope you enjoy this exploration of spirituality, ancient traditions, and the timeless essence of the Wheel of the Year!
