Summer Solstice

Bhava—Bask in the Summer joy but be aware that the Sun has reached its peak in the Northern Hemisphere and has begun its journey of waning for the next six months. The relaxing, easygoing quality of a more lunar, fluid nature can be integrated into the expansiveness of summer qualities—celebratory, sukha (intrinsic happiness), loving appreciation of the best of life, and the ease you feel in your body.
