Cycles of the Season: Homesteading Beneath the November Deer Moon


| 11/2/2016 9:38:00 AM


Leaves let go, a descending spiral, a flurry of whirling dervishes in the air.

In November, we walk into the heart of fall and into forests aflame with color. It is a time when the veils between the worlds are thin, when our ancestors linger close, and when we bare witness to an amazing transformation: from life to death, from abundance to scarcity, for light to dark.

It's a season for reflection, for remembering those who came before us, for offering our gratitude for all that we have inherited from our tribe and from our earth. In honor of this special time, here is a homesteading guide, created by Natalie Bogwalker, the founder of Wild Abundance and the Firefly Gathering, to help inspire connection between mind, body, spirit and land.
