Yin season

The 21st of December is the Winter solstice - the shortest day and the longest night.  Earths energy has gone to ground.  Winter is a season of yin, the passive female principle of the universe, it offers us the opportunity to rest and nurture ourselves.  We often feel a little more emotional and sensitive this time of year as it's a time for introspection and reflection.  We try to learn to "go with the flow" of life, instead of trying to control or fight it. Facing our fears to regain courage and turning inwards to find the answers to our questions about life and the universe.
