The Five Seasons
Tap Into Nature's Secrets for Health, Happiness, and Harmony
by Joseph Cardillo

New Page Books, 2013

"Indian summer, the fifth season, is energetically important because it provides the hub or center of balance for the other four... This 'middle country' of the mind, the fifth season, is the driving force behind all purposeful living."
The Five Seasons

This is a self-help guide to achieving an enlightened, enjoyable life by establishing balance with nature in your mind, body and spirit. Based on the idea that each season has its own unique natural energy, it offers holistic techniques for balancing your emotions, creativity, productivity, decision making and more.

The holistic and non-pharmaceutical techniques, are familiar: using music, meditation and breathing exercises, positive thinking, walking outside.

Awareness of the effects of nature's cycles, from the rotation of the Earth and the progression of seasons to the phases of the moon and our own metabolisms, can be a critical element in any program of self-improvement. This book suggests ways of using that awareness constructively.


Ecclesiastes 3: To Everything There is a Season

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
