In Chinese Medicine, we work with the idea that you are a microcosm of the universe; that everything that you see in nature is at work in you. When you are aligned with nature, on all levels, you feel healthy and balanced and at ease. Summer is a time of expansion, extroversion, being out and about, and romance. You see this in the garden as you watch the bees, butterflies and hummingbirds flitting from flower to flower pollinating as they go. It is the energy of the Heart spreading its joy through the land in the form of riotous color and hot sunny weather. As part of Avena’s Living Earth, Living Soul series, join Amy Jenner on Wednesday June 25 from 5:30-7:00 and learn how to cultivate the spirit of summer in you.
