Take the time to feel what you just experienced. Offer thanksgiving to all that supported you. Take the time to rest. Trust the rest. Keep resting until you organically feel the arising of your next intention.
Moon Phase: New Moon 🌑
With the completion of the moon cycle we come back again to the mysterious dark moon. It’s time to take a load off, relish in completion. Let things percolate. Let the feelings surface, of joy, regret, celebration, exhaustion, pride, anticipation. No matter the phase of the moon, in this integration time we have the opportunity to let it all come together in our body, spirit and psyche. In this resting time we allow our next creative impulse to arise and we begin again.
Primal Sequence: Being a Newborn
This is the time when you are resting and integrating your birth, playing, bonding with your parents, taking it all in, and resting again. Take the time to feel what you just experienced. Offer thanksgiving to all that supported you. Take the time to rest. Trust the rest. Keep resting until you organically feel the arising of your next intention.

Themes & Experiences

Creative Process: Reflecting and Resting
This is the time of reflecting on what you experienced, offering gratitude to all that supported you, and resting. Reflect on what you made or did. Offer gratitude to everyone and anything that supported you in this creative process. Rest. Take it all in. Celebrate! You did it!
Exercise: How do you love to celebrate? What supports you to rest deeply?
What does it feel like in your body when you reflect on what you made or did? How can you embody or enact integration? Do you like to spend time with others, or alone? Create a ritual of completion and offering. Rest into the pleasure of existence.
What do you need to support you in fully experiencing the integration phase with ease? Write a list of internal and external resources to support you in this part of the process.
