Happy Fall Equinox! The Fall Equinox is the transitional decline from the Summer Solstice leading into the shortest day of the year on the Winter Solstice. This year, in 2019, the Fall Equinox lands on 9/22- 9/23. Autumn is often seen as a season of mystery and darkness, but it is also a celebration of new beginnings and closing old chapters.
In this podcast episode, I have an amazing conversation with my dear friend, Erin Oberlander, certified aromatherapist. Erin has a background in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) as well as Ayurveda. She is just sooo full of knowledge, and has even created an amazing online academy, The Intuitive and Seasonal Living Academy. This online academy comprises of Kori Messer, Inspired Life Strategist, and Erin, Certified Holistic Aromatherapist. Together, they have collaborated to bring all online students an offering that includes personal development of Body, Mind, and Soul while you connect with the ancient wisdom traditions of Ayurveda & Traditional Chinese Medicine and the modern art of Aromatherapy.
