Sometimes the harvest is from working with a group. As in, the pictures above with written insights and gratitudes on post-it notes and flip charts. I recently co-created a process (thx Krista Betz) for 50 people who had been together for a week in learning. It was simple — personal reflection, then partner conversations, then small group conversations, then back to partners, then to an offered insight. It was good to cap the week with a little consciousness on important moments and gratitudes. It was good to cap the week with appreciation for the experience of being together.
Sometimes the harvest is from having family and friends together. As in, making soup together, with a dear one. As in, pulling out what is left in the fridge. It’s leftovers — turkey, brussel sprouts, zuchini, tomato, onion, celery. It’s thyme, basil, paprika, salt, pepper. It was also simple — use what we have, create it with experimentation and kindness. And again, an appreciation for the experience of such nourishing together.
A bow to the harvests of many kinds.
