Welcome to Autumn! It can be so helpful to create a practice that flows with our natural rhythms and this includes the changing of the seasons. Our relationship with these changes can help us maintain balanced healthy lives.
There is a fifth season in Chinese medicine called Late Summer which begins mid August and ends at the equinox. We have just transitioned from Late Summer which is connected with Earth energy and the stomach and spleen. In Chinese Medicine every season is associated with an organ, an emotion, an element, a direction, a colour, a taste and an animal.
