Autumn’s Lessons

October’s splendor always seems too short to me.

Autumn is one of my favorite life coaches, for with each falling leaf and changing color, there can be found a lesson, metaphor or parable.

I’m most coachable during fall because the season is hypnotizing.

Fall is when I remember to pause and relish life. Nature has my full attention. It’s my season of pensive reflection and resolution.

What Professor Autumn has on the curriculum this year:

  • An ending is a beginning in disguise
  • Change is constant
  • Growth necessitates change and change necessitates growth. 

As you experience this season, we invite you to ponder: What spiritual lessons and practices are suggested by the coming of autumn?
