Welcome to December, love! We made it!
Use this month to take stock of how far you’ve come this year. Over the course of the month I’ll be posting prompts for reflection and ideas for rituals that can support us.
May we take the lessons that are ours to carry forward, and leave the rest in 2020.
December Oil Protocol
December is a time for reflection and introspection. It’s a time to gather the lessons we learned over the course of the last year with curiosity and compassion.
Use this oil protocol to support your meditation and intention toward forgiveness, responsibility, and generational healing.
On Guard – Protective Blend – healthy boundaries, a sense of being protected and reinforced
Myrrh – The Oil of The Mother – a sense of safety in the world, healthy attachments, trust, and groundedness
Wild Orange – playfulness, creativity, joy
Fennel – taking responsibility, claiming oneself, developing a strong connection with one’s body, healing shame
Siberian Fir – forgiveness, generational healing, perspective, and wisdom
Douglas Fir – learning from the past, generational healing, renewed energy for a new chapter
Lemon – clarity, focus, supports thoughts which contribute to well-being
Frankincense – The Oil of The Father – truth, release lies and limiting beliefs, a sense of discernment, protection, and valuing oneself
Apply daily before meditation, journaling, bathtime, bedtime, or any other reflective practice.
Burnout Proof Academy Upcoming Workshops + Updates
We’re taking December off from Saturday School at Burnout Proof Academy. Thanks to everyone who attended November’s Healthy Boundaries LIVE workshop. It was a success! We had a wonderful turnout and so much rich discussion! It’s now available as a self-paced online course – you can get all the info and register here.
Wrapping up courses is our focus for December. If you are enrolled in a course that you would like CEUs for in 2020 and you haven’t yet completed and received your certificate – the deadline for completion is December 14th, 2020.
Looking Ahead to 2021
Our community has grown so much in 2020, and I’m so excited for all that’s in store in 2021. More opportunities for connection, learning, and self-reflection abound!

Back to Basics Saturday School LIVE Workshop – tentative date sometime in February 2021
Kickstart your new year by getting back to the basics with us!
