The Fifth Season: Opening our Hearts to Love

3 Aug, 2022

Reading through the contributions this month I was struck by something Jude Ponton wrote, when she reflected that imbalances in the Yi spirit might present as Psychospiritual Indigestion. As we enter into the Fifth Season of Chinese Medicine, the Element of the Earth we have an opportunity to examine what we cannot digest, and to identify ways to nurture ourselves, embrace the bountiful abundance of Mother Earth, and find center physically, emotionally, and spiritually. When there is a lack of joy, or a crisis of values we find meaning and purpose by transforming the negative impulses that surround us. Judy Bernard’s contribution this month provides self-care strategies designed to address these deep and profound emotional feelings so that we are able to open our hearts to both give and receive Love.
