🌻Lunar New Year! │ Mindfulness, Productivity & Covid resources


Happy Lunar New Year of the Water Tiger!

Lunar New Year is the second New Moon after Winter Solstice, and the biggest festival in my Taiwanese-Chinese culture. Families and friends prepare and gather for weeks, and flock to temples to burn incense and offer food, prayers, and love to our ancestors. Here in the USA, I typically spend Lunar New Year on a mountaintop, offering my own prayers and love up, down, and all around.

🌿 How are you honoring the second new moon of 2022?

🌿 What cultural traditions do you observe at the start of the year?

🌿 How have your cultural traditions shifted & blossomed over time?
