Fall and early winter remind us of impermanence and death. The season is windy, emptying, rough and dry. If we are listening, we may feel our mind and body undergoing a shift towards a more inward focus. Like a turtle drawing its head into a protective shell, winter is a time for intuition, stillness and dying off. When out of balance in winter, we can tend towards the more vata-genic conditions of constipation, fear, cracking joints, arthritic pain, dry skin, anxiety, insomnia, and seasonal sadness (due to the lack of sunlight). Winter is the time to keep warm, oiled-up, nourished and protected.
This is the time to enter the cave of your own heart: awakening to the truth about love, intimacy, connecting with our power and finding peace. Winter of LOVE
