Nature’s Calendar

Play all year long

Gift yourself a powerful daily dose of pure presence. 

Take a few moments to notice where you are, to simply be here and play now. 

Create a circle from the small things you find to hand in the moment with you.

Your invitation to play is always in perfect alignment with the effortless shift and change of the ancient seasons of life.

Solstice to Equinox and back again, around the eternal cycle of the solar year. 

From acceptance to action and back again.

There is a time for everything in the the cycle of the year.  The cycle of your breath. Flow is our natural state.  Simply relax and enjoy.

The days, weeks and months you know presented in a refreshingly nature led way.

Including Moon phases, solar and lunar eclipses and more. 

Plus moveable feasts of major world religions.

All this as a frame for your personal moments of playful presence.

Time is short

Take a moment to connect with the detail and complexity of the amazing natural world that surrounds you, right here and now. 

The more you look, the more you’ll see.

Where ever you find yourself, Nature is there with you.  From the sun, moon and stars to the weed pressing through the crack in the concrete – to the smile of a stranger in the street


is your daily reminder to look past the familiar wallpaper to see and schedule the time to play, inviting in the things that really truly matter deeply

Working hard gets shit done.  Playing hard lets off steam. Working gently gets the smart shit done.

Playing gently reveals and nurtures possibilities of escaping the shit completely.

Hey!  I’m Rachael Skyring

Like you, I’m a courageous, conscientious and capable human.   

A chai drinking wife, mother, librarian and yogi, living an ordinary life in the suburbs.

A few years ago, I got tired of trying so hard all the time.

Tired of never feeling like I was doing enough, being enough, good enough…

I decided there had to be another way to experience this life thing.

PLAYING GENTLY is the bold solution I discovered.
