As we move from Autumn to Winter we benefit from honoring the shift within us. This reflective workshop will support going within to consciously leave behind what is no longer serving you. We will explore the acupuncture meridians and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Elements with yoga, meditation and contemplation.
The Autumn is represented by the Metal Element in TCM. When this element is in balance we experience faith, honesty, openness, acceptance, and truthfulness within ourselves. When it is out of balance we can get stuck in worry, remorse, regret, obsessiveness, self-doubt, self-centeredness and suspicion.
The Winter is represented by the Water Element in TCM. When this element is in balance we experience sincerity, introspection, modesty, lucidity, curiosity, innovation, resourcefulness and objectivity within ourselves. When it is out of balance we can get stuck in fear, insecurity, experiencing weak willpower, and social isolation.
There will be movement and writing exercises to solidify letting go as we leave the Metal Element, and honor the Water Element as Winter approaches.
