Letter for Publisher
This heart of winter month in our community is a time to share and empower one another with love, appreciation and hope. Whether pursuing cherished holiday traditions or creating new ones, this can be a very fruitful season.
In that spirit, this December 2019 issue of Natural Awakenings Tampa Bay brings a rich variety of news and views from the front lines of the natural health movement. As always, our magazine is filled with inspiration, healthy insight and events worthy of consideration, this season and year-round.
This time of year, many turn more to the metaphysical realm, to the essential connections we have with one another, and to all life. In “The Emerging Power of ‘We’: Awakening to the Evolution of Community”, writer Linda Sechrist offers some compelling arguments for essential change fueled by collective wisdom and collaborative efforts. Clearly, the need to evolve from a culture of “me” to a culture of “we” could be a key to addressing major challenges confronting humankind.
Tampa Bay’s uniquely west coast traditions play out this month in a colorful variety of ways. Many decorate to the max, at residences, neighborhoods, parks, businesses and more. Local celebrations feature gaily lit, creatively decorated boats parading through Gulf, Bay and Intracoastal waterways. It’s a good time to celebrate our uniqueness and our bonds as community. The possibilities are limitless.
Warmest wishes to one and all for a most enjoyable holiday season.
As always, open your mind and heart and read on.
