After a wonderful summer of sunshine, camping, festivals and many unexpected adventures, I can smell change in the air, things are beginning to move in, settle down and find a new equilibrium.
Late summer is the time of year of balance and stillness represented in Chinese medicine by the Earth Element. This is the season of sweetness and nourishment, time to take stock of everything we have experienced over the year and give gratitude for all the summer fun and festivities.
On Friday we will have the autumn equinox a time of perfect balance when day and night are equal across the whole earth. A good moment to stop and notice what is in balance in our own lives.
