Letter From the Publisher
At times, the essential rhythms of life feel like comfortable old friends: dependable, familiar and nature- driven. Writing these words in preparation for our March publication, I am reminded of the Spring Equinox returning this month, on the 20th. I’m already imagining buds, birds and bees in the swaying palms. Here’s to life!
Just think of the many ways there are to honor returning seasons, spiritually and otherwise. And celebratory ritual can bring us together on the same wave length in so many ways. Think of the essential beauty in nature, sunrise and sunset, music, art, love, birth, death and beyond.
Nationally recognized holidays this month include Purim (the 5th), St. Paddy’s Day (the 17th ), Palm Sunday (the 29th). As individuals, we can join in celebrations’ significant moments, be they birthdays, anniversaries, lessons learned, shared success (the continuing growth in the size and awareness of the natural health movement, for example). Project ideas fill my mind. I feel energized.
This March 2015 issue of Natural Awakenings Tampa Bay features news and insights on two very important aspects in natural health movement fronts: Animal Welfare and New Healthy Cuisine. Our calendars of events are filled to the brim again this month and, as always, our editorial content is a rich mix of news and insights on the natural health movement, planet-wide and here at home.
As always, open your mind and read on.
