In the Chinese System, we are at the cusp of Late Summer, being the Apex of the Yang cycle and Autumn, the beginning of the Yin. Late summer is a short season in the Chinese calendar, though it is in play at all times. It focuses on the center of you, your stomach, how you digest and assimilate food is how you do so with your life, this organ is directly correlated with your Over All Well Being and the functionality of your Mind. Simultaneously we are prepping for Fall, the Lungs, the breath of your life, your courage, your grieving, shorter days into longer nights, working w your boundaries, consolidation, harvest. I will blast us through it all :)! You may bring your notebooks for this one.
