We are moving into the season of warmth and light, which brings with it outdoor activities, time in the sun, soon-to-be holidays and a general light-hearted mood. The way light bounces through the leaves as they dance in the wind, or the way the sun sparkles on water, or is reflected in someone’s gaze, never ceases to inspire in me the feeling of interconnection with each other, the planet and the universe as a whole.
For this reason, this month’s issue is all about light, both the luminosity we have within and may choose to shine out into the world, and light in terms of keeping our minds and heart light when engaged in a fast-paced world.
As you crack open your barbecue and gather outdoors for some social fun, as you find yourself in air-conditioned environments or should you find yourself feeling the rising heat as you move throughout your day, please enjoy the series of articles in this issue to help prepare you for summer with lightness. You will find diet, beauty and fitness tips to meet the warmer weather, ways to keep peaceful at work, books and meditations that lead you to the light, how to find emotional and yogic freedom and music that keeps you feeling luminous.
In the coming months, may you find yourself chanting what I sing in my new song Natamba’s Theme (I Am Light):
“I am light dancing in delight
I am light dancing through the night”
