What a start to 2020 we have had…with people having the kind of conversations worldwide that will come to shape our collective future. There is much to talk about and furthermore; action to take.

Your ‘Voice’ can be seen in all manner of expression. In creative ways we can send a message and the ones which have the most impact are often very creative in nature. Connection is the theme which 2020 is embodying….

Welcome to the first Seeker blog for 2020, Happy New Beginnings! This year, Seeker is inspired to follow a theme each month to explore. Being January and the first month of a new decade, I have been feeling into what 2020 may entail lessons wise, 2019 surely was a big one in that regard!

Seekers, its been awhile. The central blog of Spiritual Seekers Guide to Queenstown & Surrounds has been paused for the latter half of 2019, but as we arrive at the end of this wild, wild year I felt it time again to begin.

We have passed the half way point of the year, Solstice and the shortest day/night here in the southern hemisphere, the point where we begin the journey back to warmer months and the light. The first half of this year has been every bit a challenge as the infamous 2018, it just seems to get more hectic as we are asked to grow in ways unfathomed.

As we enter into the season of Autumn here in Spiritual Seekers home of Arrowtown, we are reminded to take stock of ourselves and prepare for the colder months ahead. We slow down and start to dig out the woolly hats and scarves. The trees are ablaze with layers of rust golds, fiery oranges and deep plum reds.

Luminate, set atop a crystal mountain called Canaan Downs half way between the Nelson region and the magical Takaka and Golden Bay, is New Zealand’s largest festival of its kind. The kind which offers a sustainable way of creating an event on a huge scale, with hundreds of wellness workshops, epic worldwide musical acts running continuously over three stages from dawn till, well dawn, celebrating the time of the year known as Lughnasadgh or Lunasa in the southern hemisphere which is the point midway between the summer solstice and the autumn equinox.
