WINTER SOLSTICE:

A TIME OF DEATH AND REBIRTH

WHAT IS SOLSTICE? The word solstice is used to describe celestial events that take place in the winter and summer; the word’s origin, derived from the Latin word sōlstitium, which is translated as “the standing still of the sun.” Occurring at the exact moment all over the world, the season being experienced is based upon which side of the equator you reside. The Earth is tilted about ..

THE GIFT OF WINTER SOLSTICE:

A PERSONAL REFLECTION

Since the passing of Autumn equinox in September, when day and night were of equal length, and we celebrated the harvest—our days began to grow shorter and the nights longer. With equinoxes and solstices being astronomical events, this shifting of light similarly occurs throughout the Northern Hemisphere. In addition, there are other seasonal changes found within the natural world that are c..

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW

AS WITHOUT, SO WITHIN

A basic tenet of many indigenous cultures and spiritual traditions the world over is that we are more than just our bodies and all things are made up of a vital essence or energy which can be contacted.  They taught, and still teach, that each organism’s energy is unique and moves in specific ways, creating a field that expands beyond the physical form, intermingling with other fields and t..

AUTUMNAL EQUINOX:

A TIME OF HARVEST

There are special moments during the annual journey of the earth round the sun that have been recognized and honored the world over. Acting as seasonal demarcations, the solstices are times of the longest day/shortest night (summer) and the shortest day/longest night (winter), while the equinoxes, located equidistant between them, are times of equilibrium when, for a brief time, the Sun appears ..

SLIDING SIDEWAYS INTO FALL:

A PERSONAL REFLECTION

The transition from summer into autumn is perhaps one of the most recognized of all the seasonal markers.  We can see it in our communities; as children return to school, summer’s more leisurely pace seems to quicken, traffic patterns change, time demands and schedules shift, varieties of local produce being offered reflect seasonal changes and, almost instantaneously, beach towels and suntan..

Seasonal Changes are Not Merely Observed in the Outer World

Seasonal changes are not merely observed in the outer world. As we live in relationship with the natural world we, too, experience these seasonal shifts.  Both external and internal energies shift as the seasons change, waxing and waning with the movement of the sun. In both the Druid and Lakota traditions, and also seen in Oriental medical theory, as well as in other traditions the world over..

“Before moving to Albuquerque four years ago, we asked our current Acupuncturist for a recommendation on where to take our special needs daughter for acupuncture. Dr. Polasky was at the top of his list. Dr. Polasky was more than happy to add our daughter as one of her clients. She listened intently to a list of needs we had for our daughter and then took the time to sit and evaluate h..

Unlike other websites focused on fees and insurance, Dr. P..

“I have known Dr. Polasky approximately 20 years. Diane opened me up to the realm of shamanism. As a teenager I didn’t even know what a shaman was, I just thought it sounded mysterious. She taught me, along with many others, how to walk in different worlds and how to connect with the spirits. It changed my world and it changed my life. Over the years, as I have gone deeper into this practice, ..

“When considering writing about Diane Polasky I think I will have to ramble a bit.

“I first met Diane more than 15 years ago. I got to know her as a friend, then as an excellent acupuncturist and then one day she told me about this spiritual circle she led. As she explained the concepts of Druidry and how they fit into her life, I then met her as one of my teachers. Diane invited me to her circle of twenty or so people. I learned that she had been teaching and leading Druid..

“I first met Dr. Polasky several years ago when I was suffering from a painful case of sciatica.  I came to her because of a glowing recommendation from a co-worker.  I had tried traditional medical care to stop the pain and it had not helped.  Her use of acupuncture along with a few sessions of physical therapy that she recommended freed me from the condition.  Since then she has continued ..
