EMBRACE THE DARKNESS OF WINTER SOLSTICE

I must also have a dark side if I am to be whole.”
– Carl Jung

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.
The winter solstice has always been celebrated in China as the resting time of the year. In winter the life energy, symbolized by thunder (the Arousing), is still underground. Movement is just beginning, therefore it must be strengthened by rest so that it will not dissipate prematurely. Rest reinforces the renewal of energy. The return of health after illness, the return of understanding after an estrangement… everything must be treated tenderly and with care at the beginning so that the return may lead to a flowering.”
– Darren Austin Hall
(Elephant Journal)

To truly understand the return of the light, we must first embrace darkness, external and internal. Winter Solstice is a perfect opportunity to perfect the relationship with ourselves so we can then perfect it with all those we LOVE around us.

A few tips:
– SHARE your light (gather with loved ones to sing, dance, eat, keep it simple, light candles and incense)
– DO something nice for someone (SEVA) donate food, clothing etc…
– REST, relax, nurture. MEDITATE
– STROKE ur inner fire.
ENJOY BEING without effort.

ENJOY,
Namaste
