Here in Melbourne we’re right in the heart of winter. It’s cold, it’s wet but haven’t we been blessed with some beautiful sunny days! I hope you're enjoying those slices of sunshine and warmth as much as I am!
Winter is a time of retreat and stillness. We’re in the most Yin (quiet, cold) phase of the year and the energy of the season supports inward looking and reflective activities. It’s the perfect time to take stock and reflect on your inner and outer worlds. Think of where you were 3, 6 and 12 months ago. How have things changed? How have you changed?
Winter also represents the time of the ‘shadow’; the unconscious and most hidden parts of ourselves. Do you fear and avoid these darkest parts of yourself? Or do you have the courage to look at and work with your shadow aspects?
In Chinese medicine, Winter is associated with the Water element, the colour black and the Kidney and Bladder meridians.

Embracing the energy of Winter
How would things be different if you could slow down (without guilt!) and listen to your body more? What if you were consistently in tune with your intuition? How does fear show up in your life? Do you struggle with motivation and willpower?
