Needy 24: Honoring Your Natural Rhythms With April McMurtry

Today’s episode features April McMurtry. April is the founder of The Moon is My Calendar and creatress of the New Moon Calendar Journal. She is also a visual artist, mama, teacher, and creative lunar guide. Her work reflects her passion for nature-based cycles, personal mythologies, and symbolism. April has more than fifteen years experience working in education as a classroom teacher, workshop facilitator and program coordinator at home and abroad. She loves to support people on the path to growth and transformation. On a more intimate note she says: I am drawn to things that keep me connected to the cycles in nature and reminders that life is an unfolding work in progress. Meditation, creative process, connection to intuition and the cosmic currents get me up in the morning. And my kitten. And my daughters who need breakfast and lunches for school. And kisses. During today’s episode, April shares so many beautiful stories and tools for deepening your relationship with your own personal energy cycles by cultivating a relationship with the moon. These tangible ways to tend to yourself can help ground you in the knowledge that you are a part of the natural world around you and assist you in nurturing your body over the course of the moon cycle and year.

Tune in to hear us explore…

  • How to connect with and learn from the moon
  • Reseting your rhythm as you move throughout the seasons
  • Gathering information about yourself that will help you care for yourself more deeply
  • Combating our own unreasonable expectations and honoring seasons of growth and rest
During the episode April mentioned a blog post that she’d written called Reset Your Rhythm. As April and I were chatting, I also talked a little bit about how I use her New Moon calendar in Cycle, my yearlong group for humans who are looking to deepen their relationship with cyclical living and honoring their own personal rhythms. Doors for Cycle open in November! Dance on over here to get on the waitlist. I hope you enjoy this episode! Click the play button below to listen in.
