This day marks the most 'yin within yin' time of year in Chinese Medicine. Yin is cooling, it is darkness, it is mystery. 'Yin within yin' marks a time to slow down, go inward, rest. A time to explore our inner world - our intuition, the more subtle layers in our body and psyche. A time to honour night, to honour darkness, to honour stillness. A time to pause, now, and wonder in awe at the the mysterious and quiet force that connects us all.
May you remember the flame that exists in the heart, even on the coldest of nights. May you feel the roots of the earth, wherever you are. May you breathe your way through darkness, and be guided by love, towards a new year.
Please stay safe, warm, and healthy over the holidays, and we'll see you in 2018.
