Welcome to another beautiful December on the West Coast of Florida! This special issue of Natural Awakenings Tampa Bay presents a special look at the powers of prayer and meditation.
I am proud to announce the introduction of two inspiring new features in this issue. These monthly features include a “Business Spotlight” (page 27) and a “Community Spotlight” (page 13) and are filled with timely insights on practitioners and other health related businesses in the Tampa Bay area.
Opportunity abounds this 12th month of 2015 to observe special holiday traditions completely harmonious with goals of natural health and well being. I remember so clearly my childhood excitement during the holidays. The seeming miracle of Santa’s arrival on the 25th and the glee my sisters and I felt when tearing into our gifts. Before long we knew that mom and dad had orchestrated those festivities, but the excitement and the spirit of that special time is alive in me to this day.
Enjoy this special time for sharing; empower one another with love, appreciation and hope. During December, we recognize the Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and other special days, and with ever-expanding consciousness, embrace the New Year and the opportunities it brings to become the highest and best versions of ourselves. Happy holidays to one and all.
As always, open your mind and read on.
