Return to the Senses

Return to the Senses

For centuries, the senses were invoked for ritual and romance, protection and prayer. Our senses are our protective mechanism, our deepest instinct, our creative force. as ancient beings we are imbued with the gift of the senses to keep us safe, to create art, to make love in various ways.

This month, we prioritise a reconnection to the senses: a digital world is a blessing, but it is also an escape, pulling us to exist for so much of our lives in an ethereal, disembodied space.

For the majority of this month we are under the influence of Gemini, as well everything currently unfolding in the world — an active practice of returning to the senses, to the body, can bring us back to joy, to contentment (even when life is hard) and most importantly — back to earth, and the beauty that is available to us.
