Dear Wise Women,
Today we dug into the depths of the earth and pulled up her fertile energy into our bodies through a very yin and earth focused session of Qigong. We connected to the darkness and honoured the power of the Winter Solstice, a time when the yin energy is at its maximum and is just on the cusp of transforming back into the light (the yang). As we discussed, our modern society doesn’t always encourage or appreciate the acts of cocooning, resting, and “ introverting”. In fact, we tend to be “rewarded” for the opposite behaviours of busy-ness, productivity and extroverting. For some of us, it is all too easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the festive season which can lead to exhaustion, depression and anxiety. Today’s class was a reminder and an invitation for us to do what this season is really asking of us, which is to slow down and reflect, connect and rest!
Ladies, thank-you for sharing today’s practice with me and I wish you all a peaceful holiday, however you may celebrate this season!
Extra blessings to our fellow wise women, Colleen, as she undergoes a hip replacement surgery tomorrow. Colleen we all sent you extra love in our closing circle today! ❤️
