This is the most Dangerous time of the year in the Eastern Calendar.

Dön Season is a time when the accumulated karmic dust bunnies of the past 12 months gather—and doing one thing at a time, with mindfulness is particularly vital.

Don Season, the Buddhist end of year, is coming: now is not the time to make major life or business decisions or to travel. Stay safe by staying present! 

Stay close to home, meditate, practice. The way to protect yourself in Buddhism is to be present, to be open and to be grounded. Get yo sh*t together and get ready for Spring.
