Summary

From two of mindbodygreen's top editors comes an essential companion for anyone seeking a deeper spiritual life.

Taking time to nourish yourself and connect to the rhythms of the Earth can feel like a tall order when your days are packed to the brim but this beautifully illustrated handbook can make it a whole lot easier. The Spirt Almanac provides listeners with potent, accessible rituals they will want to call on again and again throughout the year to feel more grounded, aligned with their purpose, and in touch with their own innate sense of knowing.

Listeners will be invited to practice and personalize dozens of routines incorporating science-backed techniques like breathwork, meditation, and aromatherapy, as well as more esoteric offerings like astrology, crystals, and tarot. Along the way, they will learn the fascinating history of ritual and trace these ancient spiritual practices through the ages to modern day applications from several true masters - from reiki healers to psychologists to sound therapists - who live and breathe this work. Divided by the four seasons, this book features dozens of ideas for spirit and soul enriching rituals including:

  • Honor the quiet of winter and the start of the year by setting new intentions with a seed planting ritual
  • Come spring, try a breathwork ritual to release blocks and move forward 
  • Celebrate summer with a forest bathing ritual to clear your mind or a crystal ritual for an open, receptive heart
  • Wind down in fall with a self-soothing full moon ceremony to reflect on the year  

The Spirit Almanac will infuse your life with more joy, gratitude, and a deeper connection to yourself and our Mother Earth. 

Includes a Bonus PDF of recipes and yoga sequences.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic reviews

"The Spirit Almanac is equal parts practical and magical, giving anybody the tools to ritualize their life and connect to the wisdom within." (Ruby Warrington, Founder of The Numinous and author of Material Girl, Mystical World)

"If you're seeking to create an accessible, meaningful relationship with yourself via your personal practices, the science-based and spirit-rich offerings in The Spirit Almanac are calling to you. This well-researched and articulate compendium of modern ways to respect and welcome ancient traditions hadn't been created - until now. With our current (and for many of us, necessary) always-on relationship to tech and media, this book offers the perfect course correction. I've folded and marked up almost every page for myself and for my future teachings." (Elena Brower, author of best-selling Practice You and Art of Attention)

“There’s a lot of information out there regarding esoteric self care, wellness, and rituals. I hear from so many people stuck with the overwhelm of ‘Where do they come from, how do they work, do they work, where do I start?’. This almanac is a grounded and comprehensive map to the realm of the natural and phenomenal.” (Amanda Chantal Bacon, Founder of Moon Juice and author of The Moon Juice Cookbook: Cook Cosmically for Body, Beauty, and Consciousness)

So far, I Like it

I have yet to finish and am actually only at the beginning, however, something stuck out to me tp where I felt the need to comment. I think the book in itself will be great, but I am not fully liking the stone part. It is slightly inaccurate. The key thing is that the meaning will always depend on the stone, not just the type. When you are drawn to it, it is "speaking" or calling to you, usually because the stone likes your energy. The use of stones shortens their "life", so caution is needed when using then. I never agree with using them like tools. They are company. They support us. Simply putting them around you (in your living room, around your bed, etc) and interacting with them is enough for them to assist you if and only if they want to assist you.
