About Grief
In Prayers of Honoring Grief, Pixie Lighthorse notes the following in regards to Autumn, the West. She says we are invited into inward healing, often passed over in hurried attempts to sidestep the pain of messy hardships. Here lies the repository for the pieces and parts that we have not time for. It is the graveyard at the crossroads where grief work thrives. Travel into the underworld to desegregate rejected aspects.

6 weeks of darkening
Winter is a time for drawing inward and experiencing the fallow time, the time of deep potency and the energy of contraction. Nature covers everything in blankets of snow, ice, clouds and shifts the light. With the preparation done in Fall, this season a gorgeous time to slow it down, settle in by the fire at home, and draw inward until Spring.
