Unlearning Adulthood: The Truth About Time Outs

If time outs were redesigned as opportunities to come back to ourselves, to really think about our actions holistically—not as “good” or “bad”, “right”, or “wrong,” but whether our actions really align with who we are as humans, then maybe they’d stick around past adolescence.  If the timeout matured with us into adulthood, we may not fear moments in elevators, being first to the party, last on the yoga mat, alone on train, because time, out, alone would no longer be a symbol of wrongdoing.  A timeout would be sacred.

The Ritual of Letting Go

Drawn from Pegan beliefs, the November full moon ritual practices the art of letting go,  entering the new year with less baggage. 

Rituals come to us in various shapes and sizes, labels and religions.  They range from a bedtime face washing routine to elaborate holiday ceremonies.  In a well curated life, we draw and create rituals from our outer and inner inspiration.
