Somewhere in the world, leaves are turning red and gold, the air is crisp and you can smell the seasons changing.
But here on our little island...
We’re still blanketed in heat, digging our toes in the sand and chasing sunsets.
This is Fall in Okinawa. 🌅🌴
Nyepi Laut 🙏🏽🌚🌊 Full moon Feels~
Today is a special full moon ceremony day for Nusa Lembongan, Ceningan and Penida, as islanders honor ruler of the seas and they give rest and respect to the spirit of the Ocean. No one travels by boat, does ocean business, or swims in the water. It is a day for meditation and gratitude for the oceans that sustain life here on the islands. It happens once a year on the 4th full moon.
This practice resonates so deeply... wishing we could do this everywhere to just take pause to honor and respect the Ocean which sustains all life on earth....
Given all the plastic washing up on shore and all the abuse we do to her daily... Carelessly calling her water.... #nyepi#nyepilaut#fullmoon#bali#balifullmoon#nusalembongan#yin#ritual#moonmagick#meditation#islandlife#oceanlove
