Throughout January I worked with my clients and classes on the theme of finding focus and intention to see us strongly into the New Year with a clear idea of what we wanted more (and less) of. This involved a lot of introspective work based around discovering and actioning our individual sankalpa resolutions.
Traditionally in England May is celebrated by May Day in which we parade the streets with music and spring colours lead by the May Queen. The May pole is danced around representing the union of male and female, blessing the land with fertility for the coming farming year.
I have some minor grievances with associating the month of February with the theme of Love, mainly because I think that restricting displays of love and romance to each other to one arbitrary day in February is sad. We need MORE love, all of the time. You can never have too much true love, because essentially it is the recognition of the common element that connects us all (including our plant and animal friends). Some call it God, some call it the Soul, I call it Love.
