Maximise AugustAugust is a powerful month for spiritual healing and regeneration.

For children August means a break from schoolwork and studies, but for the rest of us August can be a great chance for a spiritual time out. There is something about the changed pace of the month that makes it easier to dedicate time to spiritual growth and fulfilment. For some, the longer, lighter days invite reflection, whilst for others taking a trip or holiday allows for heightened sensitivity, making August the perfect time for spiritual development.

Jam-packed schedules at work and at home can eventually start to take their toll and as we pass the half waypoint of the year you may be starting to reflect on the targets that you set at the beginning of the year.

To encourage you to make the most of this August, we bring you a guide on things to do this month to maximise your spirituality:

Weather

August is often one of the hottest months of the year in the UK so make the most of the warm weather and enjoy a walk in the countryside or take a trip to the beach. If you don’t fancy heading so far afield you could just spend some time in your own back garden, getting back to nature and connecting to the earth around you.

Festivals

The Edinburgh Festival takes place in the Scottish city throughout August, bringing you three weeks of the finest arts and culture. The festival is a collective name for a number of events, which include the likes of EIF (Edinburgh International Festival) and the Edinburgh Fringe, as well as numerous other events run by various other organisations. The Celtic cities ancient folklore and rich spiritual history make it a great place to spend time this summer.

Children

If you have children, spending days connecting with them while they are off school can bring so much fun and enjoyment to your days. Spend the month in play and wonder with your children by exploring new places and going on summertime adventures. There are hundreds of cheap and free activities to take part in this August so research online, or pop into your local library for ideas.

Adult education

While the children are having a welcome break from their studies, August is the perfect month for us adults to go ‘back to school.’ Adult education is a great way to discover and develop new talents and can be immensely fulfilling. Courses cover a huge variety of subjects and usually run from September-June so don’t miss out on the opportunity to enrol while you can.

Spend this month connecting to your inner spirit and getting back to ‘you’ and you should find that you spend August feeling secure and grounded.
