In the northern hemisphere, it is winter, which means many places are wet, chilly, and bare. Whether it is San Diego’s drizzling rains, Washington D.C.’s record snow, or Chicago’s icy nip, the winter season is usually cold, windy, dry, and gray.
The five elements – space, air, fire, water, and earth – are always at play everywhere in nature, but in any given season one or two dominate. In the season of winter, air and water prevail. Given that the elements of air and water are both cold, to balance their effects this season, we need fire. Of course, most of us intuitively know this. We light fires at the hearth, stove, oven, or furnace. We add blankets, we drink tea, we stay indoors. What may be less obvious for warding off the winter chill is the need to stoke the inner fires of digestion and metabolism.
This is a free and informative look into how we can nurture ourselves best this winter.
